Pattern Description:
This is a fabulous knit top with a difference. The wrap collar luxuriously hugs the neck and crosses over the front for a flattering effect.
Pattern Sizing:
4-30, I had a size 8
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, but there was a mistake in them. You should sew the short side of the collar closed and leave the longer side open between the notches or the collar will not fit the neck
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the cross over collar.
Fabric Used:
A fabulous mosaic print jersey, but it has little stretch. this makes it hard to get over your head.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
No changes.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I will make it again possibly in a wool jersey for next winter. I love a cosy neck in the cold weather.

Conclusion:
An unusual top, but beware of the instructions. See My blog post for more pictures.
