Whiter Shade Of Pale Car Coat Reviewed by Robin Comfort on 2011-02-24 *****
This was my very first crocheted garment. I love it...it is like wearing an afghan outside. The directions were pretty easy. I had to check the website for directions on how to sew the pieces together, but once done...its great! And, it took me less than a week to finish.
