I’ve completed Simplicity 1698, View A. The top was easy to make. The directions for swing the cowl were somewhat confusing. I had some trouble visualizing what I was asked to do. I love the color against my skin. I used a 1 war knit fabric from my stash. I was able to sew this in one evening. I would definitely make this again. I wore it to work with a cardigan. I received lots of compliments at work.
