What a fabulous piece!

I struggled a little to get size, but with the combination of sizing down + using a very stretchy Merino yarn by Rosy Green Wool I got the perfect fit!

The pattern is clear and gives all the information needed (and more!). I struggled a bit with the buttonholes so take to heart what the pattern suggests and make tons of tests on a spare piece first!

My final product is simply amazing!
