This pattern has been in my Ravelry queue since about 2009.
I loved the look, but something always seemed to push ahead of it when it came time to pick a pattern.
Until I bought the perfect yarn recently at Loop and Leaf in Santa Barbara - Louisa Harding's Amitola.
The pattern is a simple, 2-row repeat. I made a couple of modifications - left out the oddly placed triple crochet, and made it longer - but otherwise did it as written.
She was feeling a little better Easter afternoon and enjoyed getting out of the house with me for a few minutes, even if it was lightly raining.
I think she did a pretty nice job.
