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.

1396 Top and Bolero (birth - age 2)

Lace knitters, start your engines. Because the 'top' here showcases the legendary Frost Flowers* pattern (hence the inset photo, so you can see its magnificence more). The set-in-sleeved top is worked in one piece, then seamed up the back 'skirt', with a vertical 2 button placket at the back neck. And the lace stops before any armhole shaping, so that's great. After knitting the top, you'll be able to knit the raglan bolero in your sleep. It's all st st with the garter stitch border picked up and worked in one piece after assembly, embellished with a dainty little detail in the cast-off row. A wonderful ensemble for any tiny girl.
