Notes

Test knit for Rililie.

Deadline is end of December.
Plan CO using saddled-raglan yoke version.
Because CC2 may run out, may substitute another colors.

This pattern is published January 2014.
Test thread is here.
What a perfect and stunning pattern!
I had a hard time knitting this, but am satisfied with the results and details!!

Thank you for giving me such a wonderful opportunity again, Rililie!
