Pat’s extremely lucky granddaughter will be receiving this spectacular dress, knit with Malabrigo Rios (superwash)  It turned out beautifully, and is soft too.  It’s a pattern Pat got from somewhere out there on the Interwebs, and she offered to give Roisin a copy. Roisin said ‘No!”

The reason being that even Roisin balked……a complicated, difficult pattern.  Pat was definitely up to it, but it used quite different terminology than we’re used to, and short rows decreasing on the shoulders (which shaped well) but this was not a challenge that Roisin would recommend to any but the ‘like to knit with difficult patterns’ expert knitter diehards.
