I knitted this pattern in the round (on my knitpicks circular needles). It’s actually a fairly quick pattern except that I got utterly confused when the terms “left and right lace pattern” came up just at the point when I was not continuing that stitch anymore, but thank you to everyone and especially RegiRoge who pointed out that for sizes other than XS one was working with the “left and right lace’…
I like it so much that I am making a second one for my daughter in law.
I finished my daughter-in-law’s top in a wonderfully soft Merino Cotton. It came out lovely. Since I will give it to her for Christmas I purchased a nice blouse to go with it. I often wear my own top as a vest during the colder weather. She LOVES it; she especially comments on how soft this yarn is and how the lacy and cabled sections show up.
