Wilding is named after Emily Wilding Davidson, the British suffragette. The 1910s-30s vibe of this issue of Pom Pom inspired us to name several of the included patterns after strong women from this era.

tapestry needle

Notes: All slipped sts are slipped purl-wise with yarn in
back on RS rows and yarn in front on WS rows.
Due to silk yarn’s tendency to stretch, you may find that
the sleeves and yoke will grow longer during blocking
and wear. Measurements are given before stretching
takes place.
