Bessyboot from Cumbria is a beautiful, stranded colour work design using 12 colours. It has an oversized fit with ¾ sleeves and a funnel neck. It is knitted flat in pieces from the bottom up. Like most of Marie’s designs it can be knitted in the round with the introduction of 5, 7 or 9 steek stitches where the side seams and armholes would be. Please note that the pattern does not include instructions for knitting in the round.


This design is available in two sizes of kits – S, M & L and XL, XXL, 2XL & 3XL and each kit contains enough yarn to knit the biggest size of the sizes. The S, M & L kit includes 28 x 25g balls of Marie Wallin British Breeds yarn and the XL, XXL, 2XL & 3XL kit includes 37 x 25g balls. Each kit also includes the detailed high quality printed pattern for Bessyboot - all presented in a lovely Marie Wallin calico garment kit bag.


Included in the price of the kit is a downloadable PDF version of the pattern, so that you can enlarge the charts without having to spoil the printed pattern. The download link is sent by email once your order has been shipped.
