NOTE
This is one of my very first clothing designs. It wasdefinitely a learning experience. But, as I said, it was one of my first and looking back, I am really not happy with theway that I did the ribbing. In the future, I plan on re-designing this one, using yarns that are now available (youwill notice that one of the yarns is no longer available).Although this ribbing actually worked out okay becausechenille is very "forgiving," it really won't work underordinary circumstances. I just wanted to put this word of caution on the pattern. I will probably do a "back-post,front-post double crochet" ribbing when I re-work thedesign.
