How much fun is the cardigan or vest? make the three squares first and all the thinking is over. They make up quickly once you have worked out the pattern. The collar and bottom are then worked directly onto the squares. By using squares you will be stepping outside in style. Once you have tried the Lana Gatto Super Soft you will be spoilt for other pure wool yarns. It is Italian.
Pattern rating: “Silence Please” for the squares and then “Happy Chatting” for the remainder of the garment.
