This test pattern for me was unbelievable. So many learning curves. Even though the pattern gave choices, I knew the more I learnt, the better I’d get. I went every step of the way with the pattern. I’m self taught in crocheting and this taught me more - how to work evenly, to attach crocheting work to sewing and also to attach knitting to sewing. The whole ensemble came together so perfectly. I loved every minute of it. Once again, a beautiful thoughtful pattern.
