Darcy is a great way to gain confidence in the novice knitter; with thicker yarn, big needles and a textured pattern created using only knit or purl stitches, it grows really quickly. It would also be a great introduction to circular knitting as the number of stitches cast on are enough to fit on the cable so you don't have to wrestle with 'magic loop'. Also, there's no sewing up at the end!
Darcy can be worn around the neck or over the head becoming a definite ‘must-have’ for those who live in colder climates with the lazy winds that go straight through you!
“This has been perfect for me, I live in Scotland and Darcy is just lovely to wear.” Janet B
