There is a lot more detail in this jacket than the envelope photo suggests. I have this pattern and--based on this review and another recent one--I really am motivated to sew it. Looks so straightforward on the pattern envelope, but there does seem to be possible pitfalls if one isn't careful. Really nice though and I see why it gets so much wear.

This cardi wears really well when using a lighter knit. I like your version, and would love to see this in a mesh. I think one of our reviewers used a mesh???

Sorry this did not turn out to be a pattern you loved so much you would sew it again. Nice that you are getting so much wear from it all the same. It's always useful to hear the downside of a pattern ~ gives the rest of us something to think about.

Looks like a nice comfortable cardi..Glad you are enjoying it until you find the "perfect' one...Is that a chameleon on your cardi instead of a treefrog? Is a name change upcoming?

G'day Jan - It's a gecko that I made from copper sheet at a silversmithing weekend a friend ran last year. There is also a silver lyrebird kicking around somewhere too. Guess I'll have make a treefrog next time :-)
