the patterns is actually for a bolero/ short cardigan for me and comes from a library book. I should have said that the patten is for Rowan and the Sirdar is on sale. The pattern is actually very open and uses a yo to creat big spaces.
Gauge is (over 10cm/4") 8sts and 10 rows using over crossed openwork and 12mm needles
openwork is created with:
P, YO2, k, slip stiches purlwise,back onto left needle and knit.
(yes I am practising)
In between the openwork is simple st st.
