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.
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. 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!
