I’m 75, a widow, and I have lost a lot of weight recently. I’m repurposing some yarn from a sweater that I had to rip because it’s just too big! When I saw this pattern I knew that she would be perfect for my new(old) yarn. Thank you for designing this pattern and I look forward to knitting it. I love that this pattern is top down with shoulder saddles.
Haven’t started it though
This is a beautiful yarn. It is a dream to knit up. I love it
Haven’t had a chance to start it yet. But it is definitely in my queue.
Free pattern very nice and yarn exactly what I expected
