St Catherine is based on the bodice of a beautiful 15th Century oak statue of the saint made in the South Netherlands and now part of the Burrell Collection. Though the influence is venerable, the design is both modern and versatile. It is also very quick, easy and interesting to knit, with simple OXO cables accentuating the flattering body shaping.
