How is your knitting going? Currently, I am thinking about asking a geneticist to clone another pair of hands so that I can double the knitting productivity (LOL). I mean I have so much knitting to do. But I love it. π π
Today, would like to introduce you to my new knitting pattern called Trail. It is out in The Knitter magazine this month. Since the last post about The Knitter magazine, I am so happy to hear many of you in the US found and bought the magazine. π This month is the issue to celebrate British wool called Campaign for Wool. There are lots of amazing designs in here – also you can win some goodies.
Let me go into the detail about the yarn first. Trail is specially designed to use the brand-new British yarn by Woolcraft called Jarol (do you remember I was blogging about a jumper that does not have a name? This is it) in support for Campaign for wool.
Jarol is an aran-weight 100% superwash British Wool. Colours are all natural (six shades in total). It’s a delight to knit with because it’s soft, warm and superwash – £6.50 per 100g ball I think is a fantastic value for the yarn with such high quality.
Many might think that naturally coloured yarn are just for rustic looks. So I wanted to break the boundary and created Trail which has a very modern look. The main design feature of the garment is that it looks like you are wearing a thick cable shrug over a plain sweater. I wanted the cables to “trail” all-over the arms.
The interesting thing about this sweater is that you can wear it both casual as well as avant-garde depending on how you accessorise it.
The magazine is already out in shops. Hope you like it.
Happy knitty week!
