Baby Cocktail’s patterns never disappoint. Knit bottom up and seamless, although I do knit my sleeves flat, adding a selvedge stitch to each edge for seaming. Her patterns are clear and easy to understand, why can’t every pattern be like this? I give Baby a hug.

The lace pattern looks difficult, don’t worry, it’s not. Just some yarn overs and knit 2 togethers with a simple cable tossed in. The chart is easy to follow and the pattern repeat was fairly simple. Little details like the turned under hem, eyelet neck and cabled placket just make it even nicer. My husband loves to rate my sweaters, this one he gave a “wow”. Sweet.

I love this, it’s going to be a special occasion sweater.

I blabbered more here on my blog post.
