Pattern Description from Interweave Online Store: “A hip, flattering, A-line dress with a secret. A long shaped silhouette gets a slightly slouchy look from a chunky yarn and a camouflaged kanga pocket. A finer yarn lines the pocket, while the heathered Peruvia yarn knits up into cushy, wooly cables.”
