Named after my Great Aunty Betty.

A truly amazing lady who inspired my slowcraft journey by giving me a hand knitted blanket when my first child, Regan, was born.

She always made time for those she loved and welcomed everyone with a hug.

I hope you feel loved and welcomed in your Betty Sweater.

You’ll then return to the sleeves & work them individually from upper arm to cuff.

Style looks lovely

This pattern looks lovely, but I haven't made it yet. I decided I should really finish the garment I am working on first. But it looks gorgeous and I cant wait to start it


Excellent service thank you

Awesome 1st circular knit

This was my first knitting project with circular needles, and top down, easy to follow pattern, the yoke increases give it a subtle pattern which is nice. Looking for my next project now! ❤️
