Caitlin says of her design:
" This yarn is the perfect combination of rustic, soft, and lofty - it is a dream for working stranded colourwork! The colours I ended up choosing reminded me of a twist on traditional Finnish garments, which often use blue, red, white, and gold in intricately embroidered designs.
My design was inspired by the Sielulintu - the soul-bird in Finnish folklore. Talvinien means winter in Finnish.
It is a little tribute to my Finnish grandmother, Julia, and a reminder of the beauty of winter, my favourite season. I have been working on this bird motif for AGES, and I am so pleased I finally worked it out to my liking".
We're happy too Caitlin! We think it's incredibly beautiful and hope everyone loves it as we do.
This design is intended to be worn with 2-4" [5-10 cm] of positive ease, depending on your personal preference. Choose your size with positive ease in mind. ex: if you measure 36 inches, consider size 2 so you have some positive ease in the final measurement.
if you need a larger size you'll need to add 1 more skein of the MC
for size 60-64 inches/152 -163cm and 2 more skeins for size 64-68 inches/163 -172cm.
