Amazing pattern! Review by Suzanne ho

I have never been so obsessed with a pattern in my life!The interweave issue this was featured in arrived in my mailbox, and I've looked for the perfect yarn for it ever since. I finally decided patons classic wool in jade heather last month. This pattern made one of the most beautiful tunics I've ever seen. The pattern is very specific and I found it very easy to follow.

Very nice results Review by Marie Renslow

This hoodie was beautiful when completed. I've been knitting a lot lately and found this pattern very accurate and easy to follow. This despite the fact that I changed the body to standard stockinette instead of reverse - just a personal preference. Oterwise I followed the pattern exactly, even the color, and am delighted with the result. I made it in the second smallest size with a 37" chest measurement.
