    VINTAGE WINTER JUMPER PATTERN

    £6.50

    For years I have dreamed of my ultimate Christmas jumper and never found a suitable pattern. When I was given the opportunity to enter the hand knit Christmas jumper contest on Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas, I began designing and knitting furiously.

    This jumper has a more vintage fit with its cropped body. The stripes and colourwork add a bit of whimsy and fun. As the jumper is worked in Aran weight, it also a relatively quick knit. This jumper is knit in the round from the bottom up. Sleeves are knitted first and set aside, then the body. The sleeves are then joined to the body and the yoke is worked in the round to completion.

    This is a PDF pattern that will be emailed to you. Or if you would like the pattern added to your Ravelry library, please provide your Ravelry Username in the 'order notes.'

    POM POM QUARTERLY ISSUE 27 :: WINTER 2018

    £12.50

    A collaboration with Norah Gaughan as the winter issue guest editor, and nothing could of prepared us for the beauty and drama of the results. Taking the idea of tough Victoriana, the traditional notion of a delicate lady surrounded by flowers is transformed into a warrior woman of strength and resilience.

    The knits in this issue are imagined for the modern heroine. Create your own knitted armour with swirling cables and sculptural stitch details; it’s time to celebrate texture and sumptuous colours!

    The stellar lineup curated by Norah, including the designer herself, features:

    ANDREA RANGEL // BOADICEA BINNERTS // CAITLIN HUNTER // CIRILIA ROSE // HONOR ADAMS // JOJI LOCATELLI // LINDA MARVENG // VÉRONIK AVERY // XANDY PETERS

    Also packed into the winter issue is a column by our resident columnist Anna Maltz exploring knitting beyond traditions, we have a Q&A session with Norah, and a recipe for a braided challah bread –  just as comforting and squishy as knitted cables.

    Printed in the UK on lovely heavy paper.

  • Åsa Tricosa Ziggurats: 16 Elegantly Seamless Knits
    Quick shop

    Let Åsa Tricosa introduce you to the art of knitting beautiful top-down sweaters, using her innovative Ziggurat technique. Skilfully designed to minimise cutting and joining of skeins, and to maximise flowing and seamless knitting, the Ziggurat method is clever, addictive and produces well-fitting, well-finished sweaters.

    The book is written for both experienced and novice knitters, and for those new to sweater knitting. The comprehensive and elegant patterns will guide you, step-by-step, through the basics of Ziggurating. You can choose to follow the patterns as written, to master the techniques and gain confidence. Or you can use Åsa’s extensive detailed tutorials, and customise the patterns to suit yourself – adapt the neckline, add pockets, tucks, or lined hems and cuffs to create truly unique knits.

    This is Åsa’s invitation to discover the beauty of some of her favourite yarns, with designs knitted in a range of weights from heavy laceweight to aran from both commercial and indie dyers.
