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.

Lucy Neatby


683 Baby Venus

"Seamlessly knit from cuff to cuff using short rows, this design grows faster than the baby!" says Neatby. "Speedy and great fun to knit. It utilizes short-rows, tubular cast-on onto two needles, grafting using waste yarn and a neck insertion. Minimal finishing required. Once the first short rows are established, the sequence is designed to be logical and easy to remember. The cardigan will look rather strange once you have passed the center back position, as the neck opening is made last of all. This pattern is much easier and more fun to knit than to write!" The yarn is Navaho plied to a triple thickness before working with it-- easy and fun. This pattern is pure distilled Neatby, as much fun to read as a witty novel, and chock full of much more information. Fabulous, rich, extensive diagrams and schematics. An adult version is available here.
