A sheer pleasure to knit Review by JAN ALEXANDER

This pattern is a lot of fun to knit, with no seams to sew as each piece is knitted onto the garment as you go. I am halfway through to completing the garment and can try it on as I go. I'm thrilled with the way it looks, and should finish it within a week. I am not an experienced knitter, but the garment is looking very impressive.
