Heather is a talented designer, graduate in Textile Design from the Chelsea College of Art, and local girl with a real love of British yarn.
We’re thrilled that she has designed a new pattern exclusively for Spin A Yarn, using Rowan Felted Tweed – one of our favourite yarns. Trendlebere is a relaxed raglan jumper, which can be knitted in any DK yarn – it can be knitted in one colour or with contrasting ribbing, and has a swing-fit and some drape for a contemporary look. Felted Tweed comes in a wide variety of rich tones and neutrals, and with it’s blend of merino wool, alpaca and viscose, knits up to create beautifully light and warm garments. If you’d like to substitute another DK yarn and aren’t sure how it will knit up, just ask us in the shop and we’ll help you choose something.
You can buy a copy of Trendlebere in the shop for £3.00, enquire to order it though our website here or we’re hoping to make it available to buy on Ravelry.com soon! If you knit it we’d love to see your photos – either share them on Facebook or Instagram (@spinayarnshop), or if you’re on Ravelry and you’ve set up a project for it, do let us know – here’s the listing on Ravelry.
You can also follow Heather’s exciting design work at her Facebook page: Woolly Minded Knitwear.
