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.

10-003 Baby Compass (preemie through 18 months)

"Baby Compass is a generous-fitting cardigan with a matching hat," says Vollick. "I designed this pattern because I enjoy knitting in all directions without sewing a single seam. (It's) a bit of a challenge, with the North, South, East & West pleasure trip, but the journey is mapped out very carefully... Schematics are provided to clarify the knitting direction of each section and also the finished measurements. Suitable for baby boys and baby girls." (Buttonholes are worked on both sides; you sew the buttons on over the unneeded holes; the entire pattern is filled with good sense like this-- Ed.) A version for 2 - 10 year olds can be found here.

This is a wonderful pattern! It was well written and great fun making this sweater all of a piece. The sweater looked wonderful finished. I only wish I had this pattern in an adult size!
