Wildflowers Hand Dyed Yarn

Wildflowers Hand Dyed Yarn£16.00

Wildflowers was the colourway for June's Mystery Yarn Club.

I loved it so much, that I decided to offer a very limited number for sale on the website.

It is simply stunning in real life, and these photos do NOT do it justice at all.  

This colourway is quite possibly one of my out and out favourites so far this year.  So very pretty, see below for how it works up!


Par Sands Cosy Cardigan - Knitting Pattern

Par Sands Cosy Cardigan - Knitting Pattern£5.00

This Par Sands Cosy Cardigan, is designed to be close-fitting with 0” to 2” of negative ease. Tight fitting over the bust, with drape & flow down to the hem. The rippled lace bodice and the stockinette body are both very stretchy. Please choose the size that best suits your desired fit.

This is a truly beautiful cardigan to wear, and is flattering on ANY shape or size.  My testers range from a size Small to a size 4XL and they ALL love this cardigan.  Smiles.  One of my testers sent this comment along with her final notes & photographs;

"It is such a beautiful pattern and cardigan.  Your pattern is very detailed, clear and easy to follow."

The main picture is a collage of me wearing the shorter version, in Cerise, on my sock base.  I am currently working on the last sleeve of the longer version, which I am creating with two colours (see below.)

This truly is a versatile pattern as you can see.  All of my testers used different wool bases as well as different colours.  I will list them below for you.  If any of the colours/yarn bases have gone out of stock, please don't hesitate to drop me a message (or use the contact form on this website.)  

I am happy to dye whatever you need for your pattern purchase. :)

Construction;

The bodice is knit first.  The left and right panels, then the back panels.

Once joined, stitches are picked up from the bottom edge of the bodice, and the rest of the garment is knit flat.

The sleeves are worked last, knit in the round.

My inspiration for the colourway, was from the wonderful gnomes image.  However, in keeping with the "Just Beachy" theme from Paper Daisy Creations, I went on the hunt for Beach Scenes, that would match my chosen colourway.  :) 

Popcorn Beach is the closest match I could find!  So, when you order, you have the choice of what your colourway is called.
