Nolan or anyone can you tell me how to paint this sweater. I don't know how to do the texture right of the material. I would usually change it to something else but this time I would really love to learn how to do it.. (I added the bird to her shoulder for more interest)...

What I would do is paint the sweater as a smooth item first using the dark values. That will give the shape. Then using lighter colours and a rigger brush work in the weave of the sweater using squiggly lines that follow the contour of the garment. Lastly you can add the loose hairs if you want. :gl:
