Starting at the neck, Bobbler Dress is worked top-down: first flat (to make it easier to put on with buttons at the front), raising the back-neck with short-rows for anatomic fit; then continued in the round. It is shaped with several rounds of lifted increases to create the circular yoke.

Knitting: Cowl
Our home is deep in the French countryside, where time moves slowly, and Nature reigns. Behind our 19th century farmhouse is ancient woodland. Centuries old trees grow peacefully and, in the darkness of the undergrowth, ivy winds its way round the mature trunks and seeks the light.
