New Pattern: Garland

It’s that time of the year – patterns are popping out of the ground left, right and center. And one of them’s mine…

Pompom Cover

To find this on the cover of Pom Pom Quarterly (a magazine whose style I’ve adored from the first issue and wanted to contribute to ever since) was such a nice surprise when I looked in to Ravelry after a long (and a little frustrating) day at work.

Garland  Main

I love layering several skirts or dresses and tops with different lengths – and in winter, you just need that one extra layer made of the lightest, feathery yarn; wide and short enough to let all layers swing freely and simple in shape and stitch pattern so as not to overwhelm the outfit. That’s Garland!

A boxy, oversized sweater with long, ribbed drop sleeves. Mostly plain stockinette, the body is the perfect canvas to show off beautiful mohair lace yarns, with just a little delicate lace garland above the ribbed hem and around the armscyes.
The wide neckline is framed by a slightly funneled, folded ribbed collar.

Garland DetailJess from sofTrope died this beautiful, light green colourway (called ghazal) on a base of silk and kid mohair (Kidsilk Lace). It was a huge treat to knit with, so soft and silky. As a statement about the awesomeness of this yarn, just let me say this: I enjoyed knitting with it, even though I had to work on the sample during a spell of sweltering heat…

You can get this and 9 other beautiful, romantic patterns more as well as a whole load of articles and tutorials in the Winter issue of Pom Pom Quarterly, which you can order here (in print + digital for £ 9.50).
