After admiring Romi’s patterns for years, I finally took a class from her at one of the knitting conventions. She is well known for her shawl patterns, and her expertise in designing lace is fantastic. I knew from her class that she is detail oriented, with thoughtful and thorough instructions. These strengths shine through in her book.
In the pattern for the cowl part of her “Virginia City Cloche and Cowl” design, I appreciated that she gives specific recommendations for how to block the piece. She is equally specific when describing how to sew the piece together after blocking. I loved the clear and helpful details!
I used Cascade Ecological Wool.
