Notes

Design original for my Sister, but this one is the prototype. The Knit Picks was chosen because my Sis is allergic to wool, and this yarn also goes in the washer and dryer. I’ve been wearing for a few months now, and it’s holding up well.

The top two picks show the leaf edge closed up a bit which for me works best, but the bottom pics show it before I closed the edge which is also nice. It would depend on how flirty you like your neckline!

Check my ravelry store for the pattern now available in full range of ladies sizes including tall and petite, short and long sleeve versions.
