by Susan Crawford Named after a glamorous face of the 60s, Jean Shrimpton, this is perfect for dressing up a simple outfit. Best worn with lashings of black eyeliner! The collar is worked from side to side using short rows, and is a great introduction to this technique. Knitting commences at the front left point of the button tab and is worked sideways from right to left to the same point on the right button tab. The collarette is worked completely in garter stitch with some short row shaping. Because the short rows are worked over garter stitch there is no need to work a wrap around unworked stitches. This project only takes one 50g ball of Excelana DK weight yarn. Supplied as a PDF download.
A Dashing Little Swimsuit
This stunning two piece swimsuit was originally published in Woman & Home in 1938 as a single size pattern. The skirt is separate and is removed for swimming. The suit itself is knitted from the shorts up with side seams. A glamorous halter back fastened with contrasting buttons gives this swimsuit a very decadent edge. The pattern is written for the following sizes: Bust sizes: 76-86cm (30-34in) & 91-97cm (36-38in) Garment shown in photographs is for the first size Requirements: Susan Crawford Coquette (125m/136yd per 50g ball) 100% mercerised cotton 13 (15) balls shade Aquamarine 1 pair 2.25mm (US 1) needles 1 pair 3mm (US 3) needles 2mm crochet hook 5 buttons 1 press stud Purchase belt

An updated and improved version of this popular pattern. Now with 4 full colour charts to work from. Now available as a PDF download. This scarf is knitted in one piece as a square. It uses a combination of Fair Isle and intarsia techniques, combined with stocking stitch and moss stitch. All the instructions are charted, with a master chart provided to show the overall design, and three further charts which break the scarf into three sections making it easier to read and use. The charts are also designed to be best viewed in colour, but colour references are included in the key if this is not possible. This pattern offers an interesting colour work challenge to an intermediate or experienced knitter, within a simple shape.
