This is one of those patterns by Kim Hargreaves, that when you first look at it you think, maybe it’s too simple, too plain. But then you make it anyway because you love it, and then it’s done and you try it on, and well, it’s perfect. The simple things are what makes it perfect: the garter stitch yoke, the lovely neckline, the eyelet placket, and the tiny buttonholes ready for the tiny pearly buttons. Perfection. Raveled.

Details: Pattern is Jasmine from Nectar. 5 sk. of Rowan 4-ply Cotton in Lilac 139. Size 2 needles.
