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.

Classic Elite Yarns


283 Broken Rib Family

An exemplary pattern, timeless and classy, with a lot of variety in style and sizing. The shoulders are drop and the only shaping is at the front neck. The adult styles are pullover or deep V-necked cardigan; the child's design is pullover only. And yet, when you think of the simplicity of the broken rib, and how well it points up the qualities of the yarn (you could use Montera here, too), it doesn't matter. The design is uncredited, but we detect a whiff of Kristin Nicholas in the width of the adult pullover's neckline. Fits kids aged 2/3 through XL adult. Print is quite small.
