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.

Spices Book 2 Cayenne Vest

This is a rich and sumptuous vest that provides a magnificent outer layer to whatever you're wearing. It is all and entirely worked in giant cable panels, with the front edges just continued up as straps to meet and be sewn down in the back. As such it's very easy to work; the cable row occurs once in every 12 rows. Sides of the piece are straight right up to the shoulders, which are themselves unshaped. The only reason we rate this vest "Intermediate" is that the Right Front is completed "to match Left Front, reversing shapings". If you can do this-- it's really fairly simple-- then the whole thing is a doddle to knit, but makes you catch your breath on sight of it. This is from the Mirasol Spices book.
