What's missing?

I've been browsing through the Phildar web site (does anyone know how to find free patterns? I've joined up and everything, but can't find nuffin - maybe there aren't any?). Anyway. This photo just jumped out at me.


The bolero is nice, the girl is pretty - no problems there. But damn it - she has NO ARMS! Well, she does, only she's starved herself so she now belongs to the Phasmatodea family and eats insects a bit skinny. The combination of normal-person-sized bolero, gauzy shirt, and thin arms is just - well - either perfect, or scary, or perfectly scary!

    After you have clicked on a catalogue on both this page and the next, be sure to click the English flag to actually get the pattern.

  5. Oooh thank you for the web link Janette - they're excellent!

    I was reading about Phildar in Amy Singer's 'Web Watch' in the latest Interweave Knits, and now that I re-read it I see that there was no mention of their having free patterns, so that was my misunderstanding. And now I notice that she mentions Garnstudio too!
