Great pattern Review by Cathy Smith

Wonderful pattern. It worked up fast, the gauge was exactly right, and the directions were easy to follow.I have been crocheting for a long time, but I think even a semi-beginner could do this with no problem. I made it with silk yarn as a present for my Mother.I'm making one for me, now!
