Joint effort by 3 knitters! Review by Nancy Lawlor

We loved this caplet and made it together. 3 different colors,I made a soft green.We had to write out line by line the pattern, to keep us from messing up those cables,but once we "got it" in our heads,we couldn't wait to finish. I had enough yarn left over for an envelope handbag,with more of the same pattern. We then could appreciate the designers well thought out pattern. Thanks for a beautiful project for our small group. We had fun! Isn't that what knitting is all about?
