I did take a quick pic of the back before posting. This pic was taken early in the morning while it was still dark, so it's not the best but it does show the lace panel on the back. This is another great transitional garment.
A bit thank you to Anita for knitting this sweater for me. She did a great job too!
And finally a bit of crochet. 'Verna' is a sweet, cropped cardigan featuring linked trebles, which I just love. I discovered linked trebles just before I submitted this design and they're fab. They eliminate the gaps you normally get between trebles (and can also be used for double trebles) and create a great fabric with improved drape. This cardigan alternates rows of linked trebles and rows of eyelets for a great spring and summer cover up. Wear it over a pretty dress, like in the photo, on warmer days and layer it over long-sleeved t-shirts and jeans on chillier days.
For 'Verna' I used a yarn I've never tried before. Wendy Merino DK is a budget yarn which is actually rather nice and proves you don't have to spend a fortune for a nice merino yarn.
Let's Knit is in the shops in the UK now.
