Notes

Thanks to Sunflower1975 for the pattern.
When I first time see this pattern I knew that I had to made it some day. And at least I get the pattern at the begiining of this year. Then I had to find some lovely yarn. I decided to use Cascade Eco+, because lovely colour and it was quite cheap.

April 16th:I made two swatch with needles of sizes 6mm and 7mm. Then I decided that I will use needles of size 6.5mm.
April 17th:I bought right sized needles and started to knit first sleeve.
April 21st:Finished firts sleeve and started second.
April 22nd:Finished second sleeve and started back.
April 28th:Finished back and started left front.
April 30th:Blocked back. I was little worried that this will be too short but when I washed back and then I noticed that it’s just right sized. I also finished left front and started right.
May 3rd:I finished right front and started to knit petals.
May 11th:It’s ready. Now I had to wait that rain stopped that I will get good pictures on it.

Modifications: In the front there is 5 button instead of 4.

It’s so beautiful. I love it. I know that I will use this very much.
I used 701 g yarn.
