Wave hello to ocean inspired knits.
This Autumn we're heading to the coast with our knitting. The patterns this issue are inspired by the sea, its surroundings, and its beautiful ever-changing shapes and textures.
The yarn palette draws from the many colours of the sea, as well as the soft shades of sand, shingle, and shells. Our designers have created a treasure chest of patterns: four jumpers, two wraps, a cardi, a tee, and a hat that will see you from high tide to low tide as the season shifts.
Other contributions include poetry and images from Ocean Rose, musings on sailors' knots and knitting from Clara Parkes, and an easy pickle recipe from Rebecca Lawrence to give you a taste of salty seas.
Some of the yarns used in this issue:
Quince and Co Finch for the Eventide Tee
