Notes

Inspired by so many lovely top down sweaters I have seen here on Ravelry, I thought I’d have a go at designing one for my sister. This is a 32-34 bust and I used about 4 or 5 balls of Wool of the Andes. I love the lower body pattern and the increases, and I’m trying to decide how I feel about the garter button bands. I don’t love that the buttons stop before the “bustline” stops, even though the line falls above your actual “bust” but it helps the cardi “open” in an a-line

This was a Christmas gift and was very well received, she loved it! And my mom said it was “the prettiest thing I ever made”, although I don’t know about that!

Hooray! Test Knitters have volunteered their talents, and we are going to work to get this pattern released!!!

Come see the progress at the Katrina Ballerina Tester KAL group!

This pattern is now for sale in my Etsy shop!
