Zaha Cardigan in The Knitter Magazine Issue 167

My Zaha cardigan has just been published in The Knitter Magazine issue 167!

Architectural inspired cables and textures decorate this smart, short-sleeved cardigan. There are Beautiful contrasts between the central stitch pattern and the stocking stitch sleeves and outer garment sections.The front bands and centre back are worked in a twisted rope stitch, with textured triangles mirror-imaged on either side. The sleeves and cabled cuffs are worked as part of the body pieces. Zaha is knitted in Cascade 220 superwash wool in the gorgeous shade of Golden.

I have lots of exciting knitting news to share over the next few months, including new patterns, new yarn collaborations and of course, my new book! I'll be continuing to write new blog posts about all of these, but the most up to date information, please also follow me on Instagram and Twitter. I am Purlemma on both!

Happy knitting!

Demeter Top on the cover of The Knitter Magazine!

 I'm so excited to see my Demeter design on the cover of The Knitter Magazine, Issue 166!

My Demeter sleeveless top features a textured central pattern panel on the front and back. The stitch pattern comprises a series of linked rectangle shapes, which are knitted using twisted stitches. These interlocking shapes are bisected by long vertical lines, creating a wide rib effect. The outer edges of the top are knitted in stocking stitch.

The top is knitted in Juniper Moon Farm's lovely Zooey DK yarn, which is a mix of cotton and linen. This delightful yarn is available in a range of earth tones and brighter colours, including this summery shade of Goldenrod.
