It became my favorite when I first saw it posted, and I was thrilled to be selected for the test knit— couldn’t wait one second longer to cast on! Now it’s a favorite to wear, I absolutely LOVE the design, and have gotten such sweet compliments when I wear it! Thank you, Marzena, for such a romantic knit!

Hannah Collingwood

So beautiful and gorgeous design! Pattern is so clear and kind, easy to follow as always. I really recommend for all of levels, even for lace knitting beginners! (Yeah, that’s me! smiley)

I am a huge fan of Marzena’s patterns, especially the romantic ones. And even being rather slow knitting, it only took me 3 weeks to make the Balladyna. Seeing all the other gorgeous versions of this sweater feel like I need at least one more.
