Simplicity 1100 - a Jiffy pattern throw-back *UPDATED PICS*

**scroll down for updated pics**                                                    (originally posted 5/2017)
     Are you looking for quick, easy and fun to wear dress/swimsuit cover up for this summer?                       Look no further....Simplicity 1100 might be the pattern for you!
This pattern is a re-issue from one published in 1971, and shows that good design can stand                    the test of time. What's not to love? Wrap and tie.....ready to go!

My son and daughter-in-law will spending some time at a ocean side resort in Greece this summer,                  and I thought she might like a little something to take along. For some reason,                                    this fabric just shouted resort wear to me :-)
The fabric is a drapey rayon from JoAnn Fabrics, perfect for this pattern, and rolls up to next to nothing          for packing.  I know, it looks a little long....still needs to be hemmed to my DIL…

Thank you, Berroco!

Last week I received this email from Amy Christoffers :
Congratulations Patty!
                                                    You won the Berroco Portfolio Giveaway!!
Woo-Hoo!!  I rarely enter drawings on the Internet, but I love Berroco yarn and patterns, and so I  thought I'd throw my hat into the ring for this giveaway. Winner, winner, chicken dinner! I hadn't planned on knitting a sweater for myself this winter, but now that has changed.....can't wait to cast on for my own Owinja.                                   Thanks you so much Amy Christoffers and Berroco yarn company :-)

Happy Knitting,
