There are two authorized reproductions of this original Bohus Stickning design. One is from the book Poems of Color, and one was reproduced by SOLsilke and is now produced by AngoraGarnet. The two reproductions are visually similar, but use different weights of yarn, gauges, stitch counts, construction and directions, so they are not interchangable. To avoid confusion, here is a typical comparison of the two versions:
Poems of Color SOLsilke/AngoraGarnet Yarn Sport / 5 ply Lace / 2 ply Gauge 7/inch 8.25/inch Stitch count size 44 size 44 Neck band 120 154 Bust 308 352 Waist 308 328
These two versions, from Poems of Color and from SOLsilke/AngoraGarnet, are different patterns, and should be kept separate.
