Pretty For Every Day

  • Classic and elegant, the Pretty for Every Day pattern unites graceful rib with fun bobble panels for a sweater that you’ll reach for daily, but never be bored by!

    Described in its original leaflet as “almost classical in its simplicity” Pretty for Every Day is a straight forward knit. The front and back pieces are worked identically, from the bottom up, given you plenty of chances to get into a rhythm with bobble and rib. Well fitting set in sleeves finish this sophisticated sweater, one that you can pair as easily with a 1940s-style skirt as a pair of blue jeans, depending your mood!

    Pretty for Every Day is knitted using Excelana North fingering weight a soft, fingering weight 100% British wool, spun for us in nearby Yorkshire and dyed in-house by Susan and her team. Shown here in shade Persian Grey.

    The pattern includes instructions for eight sizes to fit chest measurements between 76cm (30in) and 152cm (60in) and contains clear written instructions plus a comprehensive schematic diagram and sizing chart.
