I combined the fabulous pattern from Cal Patch with the techniques from Natalie Chanin's (Alabama Chanin) book The Alabama Stitch Book. I met both of them at the Alabama Chanin workshop a year ago. It was so much fun to combine both techiques. Each time I wear it, I think about the fun times we all had that weekend. Plus, I get TONS of compliments on it! Thanks, Cal, for the GREAT restyle!
