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.

8247 Cardigan

This could just as easily be titled "My First Cardigan". We will translate some of its features, which are hard to see because of the eyepoppingness of the colourway. It's an utterly uncomplicated, drop shoulder design with two front pockets. All lines are completely straight except for the front neck. All edgings are a smashingly simple 1 x 1 rib, but for the front buttonbands they're knitting almost completely separately from the body-- they're worked up from the hem ribbing, but apart from the body of the piece, then sewn on afterwards with the selvage stitch provided. A good all-purpose cardigan.
