    This pattern is GREAT. I’ve made Turkisk ensembles for 2 friends using this pattern and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Easy to use. The getting dressed notes are funny and helpful. I am especially grateful that this is one of the patterns that comes in Queen size. THANK YOU, RECONSTRUCTING HISTORY.
