This is not for myself, but for my DDs.





I used Elann's Esprit in Natural with 4 mm needles and knitted size S. I followed the pattern as written through Pentagon 11. For sleeves, I cast on 15 stitches to prevent extra material at underarm. Also, only one side of Pentagons 8 and 9 contribute to the bottom hem, rather than 2 sides. The sides adjacent to the sleeve pentagons were brought to the back and stitched onto the back hem, resulting in considerably smaller hem circumference. My daughters are 9 and 11 years old. I think they look rather cute in it.

  7. It's really beautiful! I subscribed Vogue Knitting Magazine just to get this pattern! I'm still waiting for the magazine to arrive in my mail, I don't understand why it's taking this long...
