Here is my version of Dogwood Donna from the spring 2007 Knitscene.  I substituted yarns (I used Patons Jet, a wool/alpaca blend.)  This is a very quick knit!  I like its retro-ness.



Thanks for looking  Smiley

That is super cute!  I love the sleeves, something about them is cute. Grin  I can't wait until I can knit more than basic items.

I really love this - especially the sleeves!  It would look horrible on me though.

nice! the style is very flattering on you, too! great work on the intarsia. mine always ends up looking sort of scrunched because i can't get the tension right. but yours looks smooth and beautiful!

OK, I LOVE that! I wasn't over the moon about the version in the magazine, but somehow, yours looks AWESOME and now I'm seriously reconsidering this pattern. :-)
