Sue Blacker at Blacker Yarns has been busy collaborating on and commissioning new knitwear to take advantage of their freshly launched Blacker Swan yarn.
We have several new knitting patterns almost ready to launch, including a lovely fitted waistcoat with
a quilted design, another slimmer one with long front tails and a great over-size pullover with a row of sheep along the bottom. We are just about to photograph these, and then we shall release
them for everyone to see!
For now you’ll have to content yourself with these concept sketches – I have some, but still not all, of the knitted samples back from the designers!
Garment patterns to look forward to include the following:
Lady's cable peplum jacket in 4-ply by Judy Crawford
Little girl’s smocked dress and bloomers in 4-ply by Tina Barrett
Lady's jacket with crochet edges in DK by Sian Brown
Lady's loose tunic jumper with Fair Isle and lace in DK by Amanda Jones
Men’s/unisex pullover in DK by Rita Taylor
Hazel waistcoat with directional knitting in 4-ply by Meg Crowther
We’ll share some images of the knitted items in November!
