Now this has drawn admiring looks and many comments wherever it has been worn... It is absolutely striking with a white summer singlet or dress and looks amazing over a chocolate or black polo neck sweater for winter. RED is sooo eyecatching and dramatic. Easy for a beginner to create an amazing piece. No-one will believe you made it yourself for a dollar or two. And make gifts for your friends (or sell them ) I have NO problem with that at all. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic stitches, ch,sc,dc, Joining in the round. Sewing button Absolutely beginner level. GAUGE Not an issue at all with this pattern SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Completely adjustable to suit.
