Make sure you read Okey's own pattern description on the data page here (click on the flashing box on your lower right)-- it's brilliant. But we wanted to say ourselves just how compelling we find this top-down piece. It's endlessly becoming and has every attractive, thoughtful, knitterly touch imaginable. Look at the sly little mini-cablets at the hem in the back pleats. Cables throughout are charted and easy to read. Fits older children, too. Okey is an accomplished author and past editor of the UK's Yarn Forward-- and she writes a helluva good pattern. Garment shown is a 44" bust.
