PATTERN DETAILS

The stitch used in this piece is based on a victorian pattern called "Crazy Stitch" because of its tendency to lean one direction in one row and the opposite direction in the next. This same leaning quality gives this silky fabric exceptional drape and a flattering fit. GAUGE 4 repeats of the Half-Crazy stitch pattern, and 7 rows = 10cm/4" (1 repeat/1.75 rows per inch) after blocking. Make sure you block your swatch before measuring, this is essential for a good fit.
