More information...


  • Fronts and back are worked in one piece to the underarms, from the bottom up, with gentle waist shaping. The upper back and fronts are then worked separately with slightly different shaping at the front and back armscyes. The shoulders are sloped with short rows and seamed together after binding off: this short seam helps to prevent the shoulders stretching out and gives a neater finish than a three needle bind off. Stitches are picked up around the armscye for the sleeves. The sleeve caps, which are also shaped asymmetrically, are worked using the same kind of short rows as a heel turn which decreases a stitch for each turn and allows enough stitches to be picked up to avoid stretching. After completing the sleeve caps the sleeves are worked in the round down to the cuffs. The buttonbands and neckband are worked from picked up stitches. An unusual, very neat method is used to create the small buttonholes.

  • Why are we trialling pay what you can pricing?

    This was inspired by recent conversations amongst designers and knitters, about inclusion and sustainability. We were particularly inspired by Francoise Danoy who has introduced pay what works pricing on her gorgeous new WhakahoahoaShawl.

    We want the knitting community to be inclusive of knitters of all income levels and recognise that the cost of patterns and other materials excludes many people in both practical and social ways. At the same time, while I’ve chosen to build a business that doesn’t rely solely on pattern design income, we want it to be possible for designers to be fairly compensated for their work. We don’t want to communicate that patterns aren’t worth AT LEAST the current standard prices, if not more. We don’t know if this is the answer to finding balance between those two desires, but we thought it was worth trying and welcome your feedback.

    How does it work?

    That part is easy, just choose the price that works for you and check out as normal. Is this available on Ravelry? No, but you will be able to add your pattern to Ravelry after checkout. We’re not offering this via Ravelry because we’d have to do more manual processing. This may be available in the future.
