One thing I have always enjoyed about this pattern is that one can use wovens also, this is a rarity in patterns, and while I have used Jalie and some other patterns I keep coming back to this one ,,,,,,just because it is designed well, that is it in a nutshell, it is a huge step above a normal T pattern and it shows on you! Make a lot more!
