I used Rowan Purelife Dk and 4 Ply but am also in the process of working out the first draft of the written pattern. So I decided that the toile garment would be for me and ended up using Sirdar yarn as it came in the kind of blue I liked. It is a combination of handknit and crochet; using relief trebles in a honey comb pattern for the waist.
The concept came from the film '9 to 5', in which Dolly Parton is wearing a machine knit peach number with nipped in waist and 'A' line skirt. I added vintage crochet elements and thought that the alternative 80's route (when the film was made) would be on trend with a slight angle.
