One of my most frequent stage experiences as a child was as a Highland Dancer. After the high-energy exertions of the Highland Fling and Sword dances, it was a always relaxing contrast to perform the dainty Petronella with my dancing friends. These were the thoughts in mind for this flattering and feminine design. I created a simple ruffle edging to compliment the sleek, fitted Stocking Stitch cardigan. Worked in Alice Starmore Bainin, shown here in the Culmor and Wyvis colours, Petronella is a not only a quick and easy project but also a classy and versatile addition to your wardrobe.

When the UK lockdown was announced on Monday 23rd of March we took the strong advice of health and scientific experts and made the decision to pause orders and deliveries from the Virtual Yarns website. However safe we can make our workplace, we cannot send packages without involving delivery workers both here and at the point of destination. At this key time we need to play our part in reducing physical contact and closing temporarily is the most responsible way to achieve that. When circumstances allow we will re-open for orders.
