A great layering piece, I love the sweatshirtiness of this pattern. The yarn is incredibly soft and lively on the needles. With just a little flick of needle action, the stitch snapped into place; so very well behaved, and it created a very even fabric. The yarn itself feels like if elastic was made of velvet--so nice and it is so completely soft I think even those with the wool itchies won’t mind.

While the ball band will tell you to dry flat, I will tell you what I did with great results: Step one: turn inside-out. Step two: put in a sweater bag. Three: Wash on gentle cycle with cool water. Four: Still inside-out, remove from sweater bag and tumble dry on LOW until almost dry. Five: Turn rightside-out, lay flat and pat to shape to finish drying. Rowan does not recommend the above, but I just wanted to share what I did with success. So there you go.

Very happy with my knitted sweatshirt.
