Dorothy designs with you in mind...

Spend more time knitting and less in prep and technical research
large, easy-to-use charts—no need to photocopy and enlarge to read
photos and explanations of more complex stitches or finishing techniques

Details, details, details = successful knitting
detailed colour photographs clearly show the knitting
well-written instructions are easy to follow (note most lace knitting patterns are charted)
sizing instructions and many charts are colour-coded to make it easy
to find your size and keep your place

Hard copy patterns are
printed on heavy paper so pattern stands up to use
enclosed in a clear, protective cover

Pdf patterns are
formatted for 8.5 x 11 inch paper, but still include
all colour details and full-size charts
