Dolce

My favourite thing to do is design a pattern with someone in mind.   This particular somebody is a stylish woman on the go.  I wanted a design that was practical - that could go from thrown on casually with a jean jacket to more formal with a great wool coat.  


"Dolce" hits all those marks with great pleats all along one side creating an asymmetrical funkiness that I love and a slipped stitch pattern that makes a channel on the wrong side that an i-cord can be fished through.





As with Emma, I have taken to naming my patterns after my recipients and it's fitting that this pattern name technically means "sweet".   So here it is, a sweet pattern for the sweetest of persons, who happens to be named Dolce.
