I'm not a big wearer of pink overall, but this colour was so luscious. It sewed up beautifully, although this time I decided to hand stitch the hem and sleeves rather than machine finish them. The hem is therefore a little softer and rounder, which I think suits this pattern.
This is truly an easy, quick pattern. Four pattern pieces; the sleeves are sewn in flat, which is such a lovely knit technique, so simple. The cowl in this pattern is cut on the bias, which means you do use up quite a bit more fabric but the drape is worth it. Having this deep cowl in this soft fabric all squishy around your neck is a little bit of heaven.
I like that the pattern has simple lines, to focus on the fabric. It drapes and shines and feels so luxurious. The colour is warm and brightens up gloomy winter days, and I just feel happy when I wear it. That's always the measure of a successful make, I think!
I used View A, and think I'd add just an extra inch of length next time. I shortened the sleeves slightly, but otherwise didn't make any changes. This was a quick and satisfying project that will be a favourite for a long while.
