Relax, curl up and feel a little easier with an entertaining knit that grows effortlessly on your needles.

Hebe, from Greek, meaning Goddess of Youth, embraces all that is delightful, on and off your needles.

When life feels big, Hebe is the ideal sport-weight layer, perfect in various kinds of weather, and an easygoing shape for days when we crave peaceful solace.

She has a knack for whisking you back to happy days, offering a reassuring, warm hug with a sweetly-coloured kiss.

Starting at the top, you’ll enjoy Hebe’s casual dropped shoulders and simple colourwork created with slipped stitches before knitting down her roomy body to a cheeky split hem and adding a splash of colour at the wrists.

Hebe is perfect for indulging in uncomplicated and heartwarming knitting. She’s ideal for experienced and beginner garment knitters and includes written and charted instructions.
