Fun! Review by Lori Rae

This pattern is straight forward and very easy to follow. I used a regal purple 100% Merino Yarn by Richard Devrieze bought at Spun Fibre Arts in Burlington Ontario. For the buttons I purchased large crystals which sparkle on the purple.
It was a fun, easy pattern and one I would have no problem doing again! The only thing I changed was the final edging, instead of repeating 6 more times I did 4...I was afraid of running out of yarn!!
