The Versailles Shell

It’s finally here – 2 weeks to the day of my initial preview! I had hoped to release it sooner, but making sure I got a good, error-free product out took a little more time than I realized. I had the shell tech edited by SavannahChik. She came highly recommended, but as if that weren’t enough, this post convinced me that she was a girl after my own heart – and she certainly did not disappoint.

The next phase involved my brother, a graphic design artist who is not a knitter. This point made for some comical errors being introduced in the pattern. I had to check and recheck his work, but I love the pattern layout and logo he came up with and I hope you do too.
