Really good pattern Review by Patricia Mullin

I knitted this, by mistake, in the wrong weight linen yarn. The result was still excellent and much admired, so I am now knitting it again with the correct yarn. I found the pattern easy to follow, although it is a fairly complex knit. I also enjoyed knitting it, probably because it is all one piece and one colour. Also a very useful garment.
