Short description of your knit: This will also be the except for the pattern. An excerpt is the short amount of text that describes your pattern in the pattern listings. It should include, the pattern’s name, the craft used, its general construction (ie in the round, back and forth, seamed ect), and the bits you’d like to feature about your pattern. Below is the excerpt for Like A Virgin.
Like A Virgin is a darling long hip length cardigan with an irresistible ruffle, and bracelet length sleeves, an excellent choice for pairing with pearls. Done with simple knit instructions, it’s a perfect first sweater. Because it’s done in a chunky yarn it knits up quickly, and makes seaming a breeze. Perfect for seamed construction virgins!
