To our publishers and customers

[June 16, 2019] The site has now stopped selling patterns.

We will continue to make our customers' stashes accessible to them to the end of 30 June, 2019, in order to provide them with time to save their purchased patterns to their personal hard drives.

Thank you all so very much for your enthusiastic support over the years.  It has meant an enormous amount to us.

2005 Little Diamonds (ages 1 - 12)

Here is an absolutely classic sweater for children. You begin in the round at the hem and work up to the armhole; knit the sleeves in the round, likewise to the armhole; then unite all the stitches at the base of the yoke, and continue up in the round with raglan sleeve decreases to the neckline. The crew neck is sewn down loosely to the inside when done, but you could just as easily continue on up for a few more inches and make a foldover turtleneck. Generations of North American kids have grown up wearing this style of sweater-- be sure and include the newest. The adult version, Diamonds, is available here.
