This showstopping multidirectional puzzle in Loft is quintessential Norah Gaughan. Inspired by a quiet photograph of a wire fence in the Metropolitan collection, Chainlink features kite-shaped panels worked from the bottom up in ribbing and delicate cable mesh. An unusual butterfly hem creates a flattering shape over the hips. Knit in pieces and seamed, Chainlink will call on all your skills and reward you with an unforgettable garment.

We are excited to announce that the Danish version of this pattern is now available in print at woolspire.com
