Counterpane Blouse Review by Linda Peterson

I am currently knitting this and love the construction. I am half way through the increasing. To get the correct gauge I had to increase the needle size to size 6 which really surprised me because I am usually right on. I love knitting with linen and will be sorry when this is finished. May have to make another one. It is always fun to try a new way of constructing a garment.
