To our publishers and customers

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.

Tonia Barry

for Classic Elite Yarns   2013

9229-1 Frances (age 10 up)

This, says Barry, is "an easy-to-knit, drop shoulder pullover with garter columns detail and decorative buttons." But the armholes are indented once for a better fit at the shoulder. This is indeed a very basic garment, so the button columns are a great stylish detail. But you could dot them with lingerie roses, too, or braid suede strips into them, or embroider them. Here in Toronto we're lucky enough to have an exceptional ribbon store (Mokuba on Queen Street West at Portland). We could spends days choosing different ribbons and ways to use them to decorate this piece.

Originally published in Spectrum 9229, a printed collection of designs.
