Knit yourself a cute sweater to ward off the chill in style. Worked in fingering weight yarn, Xanadu is the perfect layering piece. The cropped high-low front and back work equally well with your favourite pair of jeans as over that cute summer frock.
Knit top-down, Xanadu is a seamless knit; short rows shape the neck and lower back, then the knitting fun begins with the modern colour-work motif - so many colour possibilities with this.
Length can also easily be added for those who prefer their sweaters longer.

Gorgeous Xanadu Yarn kits available from Miss Babs now.
