I rated the pattern medium difficulty because increasing/decreasing while maintaining the lace pattern isn’t necessarily a beginner skill. Otherwise, it’s fairly easy. I rated the pattern itself as three stars because of the many errata, only one of which (the error in the flower chart) is noted on the Interweave site. For example, the directions to bind off for the shoulder were identical for the left front and right front, when they should have been reversed. Also, the directions for buttonhole placement should have been in the section prior to “shape neckline”. While these may have been simple Danish-to-English translation errors, the English tech editor should have caught them.

Regardless, it’s beautiful. It fits. And I love it.

6/23/2017--When I measured my gauge swatch, I stretched the lace out the way I expect to block the pattern, and it came out 19 stitches to 4 inches using US4 needles -- considerably larger than the gauge indicated by the pattern. But if I don’t stretch it out, then I get pattern gauge, so I’m guessing the designer didn’t block. I sure hope this doesn’t turn out too big.
