Bonanza redux

The people have spoken or rather, have not in response my Bonanza, published recently with very little fanfare. 

And I listen.  So in an attempt to amp up her versatility, you'll find Bonanza now reconfigured her glorious fringed collar, detached.

Ever the optimist, I'm glad for the required changes that have made this piece better than before.  Fringe on both sides of the moss stitch cowl doubles the fun, and with it separated you can wear it with other outfits too!  It's definitely a win-win.  And the resulting crew neck of the pullover? loving that so, a win-win-win, right?  Yup, I'd say so.

Marlene had a facelift

Following Hilda's lead, Marlene had a facelift – not a big one, just a few tweaks here and there.  And although she was certainly fine as she was, she feels great about herself now.  So do I :).


In addition to modified abbreviations, phrasing, and enhanced schematics (that now include centimeters), I took the liberty of normalizing a few of the measurements across sizes.  All finished measures are shown below.  Having fully internalized my dad's constant mantra that "neatness counts," I simply had no choice :).  It's doubtful that anyone will notice – besides me and dad, of course. 

If anyone who purchased Marlene does not yet have the pattern upgrade in her or his library, please don't hesitate to let me know. 

Meanwhile Mildred's revision is hot on her heels.
