Because British Wool is Great

Great British Wool.

November, time to get ready for the winter season!

You may have already seen it on our Facebook page, this month my friend (and awesome knitwear designer) Jolijn a.k.a. woolandstrings on Ravelry in launching het latest pattern: Muriel, the Cardigan.

During the month of november the pattern will be free with the purchase of a yarn kit. From december 1st it will be available for purchase in Jolijn's Ravelry store.

Muriel is a deceptively simple looking cardi with a great shape and fit. But it has some amazing features that will keep you on your toes while knitting! Easily adaptable to your shape and wishes. Muriel is knitted completely in the round from the bottom up. Muriel was inspired by the BBC-series "our zoo" that is set in the 1930's.

We have knitted our test examples in a very soft merino yarn that I called "Muriels Merino", held together with one strand of the Miss Namibia mohair dyed in the same shade.

Since the Merino yarn arrived quite late I didn't have time to dye up some kits to show you which effects can be created. Choose a contrast for the mohair and it will have a lovely effect. The mohair takes the dye differently than the merino, which creates a subtle shading and depth to your colour of choice.

You can find the kits for Muriel in the "kits" section in the shop. As I didn't have time to pre-dye, the yarn is photographed in all its natural beauty. Please state the desired colour(s) in the comment section when you order or contact me for your special wishes.

Knit faster, winter's coming!
