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.

1886 Cardigans

This has been a madly popular style in all its Sirdar incarnations for girls and women, and now at last there's a terrific baby version. The 'skirt' is quite belled, the armholes curved a little, the shoulders shaped, and the sleeves (short or long) have a wee rounded cap (see schematic on data page). The yoke is simply a knit/purl rib. All this careful simplicity adds up to something terribly endearing for any of the ages it fits. It's feminine but not gooey, and looks gorgeous in any of the recommended yarns.
