Rowan Felted Tweed
Felted Tweed DK is a wonderful, tweedy yarn with a felted look. It is a beautiful blend of merino wool, alpaca and viscose rayon. The rustic colour palette makes this yarn perfect for Fair Isle stranded colour work, striping and other colour work.
It's the time to begin those holiday gifts, so Margaret knitted up this "Tincture" hat by Andrea Mowry, in one ball of Aluminum and one ball of Treacle. You can find this pattern on Ravelry.
If you want to invest a bit more time and come out with a garment that you can wear for a long time, knit up the "Coastal Crop Raglan" by Tif Neilan.
The Coastal Crop Raglan is a top-down raglan style pullover, knit seamlessly from the collar to the hem! German short row shaping in the back raises the back of neck slightly.
An updated take on a classic raglan silhouette, the Coastal Crop Raglan features pops of color in the slip stitch collar and sleeve cuffs, subtle eyelets within the yoke and a faux cable with eyelet design running down the side body. Finished with a flattering split hem which is slightly longer in the back, this wardrobe staple is easy to style & wear and so much fun to knit!
At DK weight, it is the perfect weight to layer over a dress or paired with your favorite pair of jeans and tunic through the Fall & Winter.
The Coastal Crop Raglan is written for a slightly cropped body, but is easy to modify or customize for a longer length.
