The Happy Witch
Sometimes I am a stickler for mirror image stitches, i.e., one side has the stitch slanting in one direction, the opposite side slants in the opposite direction. I loved Pat's choice of the Souffle stitch for the Happy Witch's cloak, but I wanted the left side to mirror the right.
Usually, you just need to turn a stitch diagram a 1/4 turn to get the mirror image. You can see that this doesn't work with this stitch. So here is Reverse Souffle, "for your alleged pleasantry" as one of my beloved high school English teacher used to say. (She would introduce herself at the beginning of the year--"My name is Mrs. Null, it rhymes with dull." She was anything but dull.)
