The pattern was a delight and includes a pretty feathery cable at the neck and a lovely split hem with i-cord bind off--gives it a very sharp, tailored look.

The yarn was lovely to work with and is soft and well-priced, but beware: it’s superwash and came out of the water bath like stretchy mush. I was familiar with that peculiar superwash property and knew I could get it back to shape. Roll it between fluffy towels to remove excess water then pop it in a warm, not hot, dryer. Check it every 10 minutes or so and when it seems to be back to normal size and is still slightly damp, block to measurements and dry flat. Worked like a charm.

Test knit for Lisa Chemery.
