You may have been wondering what all the mystery was about surrounding this week's update. We have been eagerly waiting the release of a brand-new design by Libby Jonson that just went live yesterday. Now the pattern has been released, we can tell you all about it!
We have the pleasure of collaborating with Libby on her new design, Timely: a fun, stripy cardigan knit out of Daintree, our luscious merino, bamboo and silk sock yarn. The cardigan has flattering waist shaping and would look perfect over a dress or worn with jeans. The fun stripes offer you the perfect excuse to work with a fun variegated or speckled yarn combined with a semi-solid. This week, we have put together twelve colour combinations specifically chosen for this design.
- Paintbox & Autumn Plum
- Static & Jersey
- Spice Market and Metropolis
- Early Morning Mist & Cajun Spice
- Dandelion & In The Navy
- Techno and Graphite
- Jarrah & Industrial Age
- Whisper & Wintertide
- Scribbly Gum & Paparazzi
- Beach Shack & Flight of Fancy
- Neon and Grey & Slim Jim
- Hot Mess & Barley
