Playtime Sampler Sweater

Good morning from my favorite vacation spot, my home state of Michigan.  As the sweltering heat of sub-tropical Houston, approaches in late April, I always long for the mild summers of Michigan for my summer break.

Aquamarine Ballet Tie Pattern Errata/ Suggestion

Finishing:  To keep the lower lapels overlapped, place a button on the opposite, inside lower front of the lower tie to hold the overlapped lapels in place.  Use the filet crochet as the button hole.
