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.

Gayle Bunn

for Nashua Handknits

NHK18-3 Surplice Lace Top

The universal flattery of this piece is beyond dispute. Bunn is a superb designer, very conscious of tailoring, who has sloped the shoulders and shaped the back neck of this piece ideally. This is in addition to the beautiful cut of the set-in sleeves, cap shaping, and Empire-styled waist. The lace pattern of the skirt is actually quite easy: 8 pattern rows, and only the odd-numbered ones have any ssk's or RT's (Right Twists) or yo's or the like. The schematic is excellent, the pattern detailed, the garment a marvel. From Nashua Handknits Book 18, North American Designer Collection #4.
