So everything you plan is going in zig zags back and forth, sometimes I wish I really had a chance to be one-project-at a time knitter/designer, yet I can't. I have that eery feeling that if I don't at least swatch and document that design in my sketchbook, that idea would float away. But this way I can revisit it and get working through it once time permits. Wonders of a designer brain!!!
But if you would like to use your stash this yarn would be easy to substitute because of the ginormous lace yarn market we have, if it would be for another Habu Textiles yarn it can be A-174 Cotton Gima, but out of other generic yarns how about my new personal favorite Madelinetosh Prairie. I must say I've been replying some folks on Ravelry considering their yarn choice for this, so please if you need help or advice, please don't hesitate to email me to PM or leave a comment, I would love to assist you if I can!
All possible pictures won't fit into any blog post. So for that reason pattern pdf has variations documented on a dress form. Please check the styling video below how many ways this garment can be worn. Funny thing is, since I've made this video, I've found at least another 2 ways! SO please experiment!!
