From the moment she hops onto your needles, Maudie will make you feel like you’ve always known her.

You’ll sense her calming influence from her first stitches: she’s gentle yet bold, and reassuringly steady, but also loads of fun.

Maudie will feel like a good friend in your wardrobe, and you’ll know each other inside-out by the time you bind off.

Knitted from the top down in plump DK yarn and incorporating loads of interesting details, Maudie is one of those knits you can’t put down.

Her front panels drift deliciously into the hem, and the feminine details on her sleeves keep you wondering what’s next but are intuitive enough to knit while you chat with friends.

Ideal for knitters newish to top-down knitting, as well as those keen on a quick adventure with a special project, Maudie includes written and charted instructions, and straightforward, easy-to-follow instructions.
