I really like this pattern so far. It's on hold while I wait for a visit from the recipient so I can try it on her to ensure it will fit. I did make the increases on the top part 1 stitch away from the cabled stitches. I liked the look of it better.
It occurred to me it would make a good pattern for a boy as well if the skirt was left off.
