Lucy Neatby


680 Venus Rising Cardigan

A master class. A unique garment from a singular designer. "This cardigan," wraps up Neatby on the last of the 18 pages, "is simple knitting peppered with sophisticated techniques." There are diagrams galore; detailed instructions and hints for all manner of procedures; advice for adjusting for your personal amplitude ("Every aspect of this ingenious cardigan may be adjusted to suit your body shape," says she, "the design is very flattering to ample figures"). Written for a fingering yarn Navaho-knitted with your fingers, but you could also use a single bulky weight. Neatby is at your elbow the whole time carefully guiding you. A marvellous pattern experience, worth every penny. A baby version is available here.
