Notes

Another great Norah Gaughan’s design.

When I started on the back, found a mistake in pattern. The first rapport in the back (1-16 rows) should be knitted three times, not one as charted in the booklet. Sadly… half of the back was done and I was forced to start again. Booklet was just published, so I immediately reported it to Norah and the correction later was announced in the Berroco website. So check out errata before casting on.

Modifications:

  1. Back was made slightly different. Wanted to have the beautiful A-line shape so I worked rows 1-16 of chart E three times as intended, rows 17-30 two times, rows 31-42 two times, rows 43-52 two times, rows 53-60 two times (11th picture).
  2. Did not like the neck and button band connection, so made the angle with some short rows (the last 2 pictures).
  3. Button band and neck band are knitted-in rather than sewn.

My tip:

  1. Front sides do not have the flare so better leave some bottom buttons opened (7th and 9th picture).

I’m very happy with the result and wear it a lot.
