Lovely to see my Aysgarth Falls Cardigan on the cover of The Knitter Magazine Issue 169! My cardigan looks amazing with the stunning mitts & cowl set designed by Juliet Bernard - what a fantastic combination!

Thank you so much to The Crowood Press for sending me an advance copy of my new book, A Knitters Guide to Shawl Design! I am delighted with everything about my beautiful book & seeing all my photos & chapters in print is amazing! I’m really looking forward to my book being published in November - more details to follow! The shawl detail shown in my photo & on the book cover is my Las Setas pattern knitted in stunning Bilum Yarns Snek gradient yarn.

This dramatic wrap is a long trapezium/ trapezoid shape, which gradually widens as it grows in length. The intersecting blocks of colour are knitted using short row shaping combined with intarsia, enabling the centre colour change. The amazing yarn is West Yorkshire Spinners ColourLab DK & the combination of the three gorgeous shades creates a bold statement accessory! 🧶

My Crabapple sweater is on the cover of this month’s Knitter Magazine, Issue 168! Crabapple was inspired by bold print patterns. This textured design has Diamond shapes embedded into one side of long lines of zigzags, giving an asymmetric look to the sweater.
I loved designing and knitting this sweater in the gorgeous new Tarma Aran yarn from Fyberspates. The beautiful blend of orange colours in the shade of Saffron really enhance the contrasting textures of my design. There are 20 beautiful hand-dyed shades of Tarma Aran to choose from!
