This pattern was a true labor of love, and would not have been possible without the wonderful help of my amazing group of test knitters, the tech editing wizardry of Sarah Walworth (tricotedit) and of course the gorgeous yarn from Cindy Héteau (mon sheep shop). Thank you all for making this possible!
