This pattern has been designed by myself so it is in UK terminology. It does not follow the usual ‘shop bought’ format. There are 6 printed pages with clear and easy to follow instructions. All my patterns are tested by independent knitters before they are released, so every effort is made so that they come to you error-free.

 

Although my patterns are strictly protected by copyright, which I ask you to respect, I am more than happy for any items made from my patterns to be sold.

 

Please allow 24 hours for manually emailed PDF delivery, especially for international customers, as your daytime, might be our night time. If you have not received your pattern after 24 hours, then please contact me. Happy knitting!
