diamonds give a very vintage feel but i think that in these new summer wools from rowan they give the pattern a much more modern feel.

double knitting

double knitting is the new technique that ive taught myself it involves knitting two layers of knitting to a fair ilse pattern to create a totally reversible piece of knitting.

reversible knitting is a new book that ive been knitting sample out of and even though i like the book i don't think that its really going to work for this years collection.

centre squares have always been useful for the backs of jumpers or the starts of shawls here is my set of three squares and an idea for a shawl.


entrelac has always been a knitting fave of mine and something that i found quite easy here is some variations that i was thinking may work for a jumper or cardigan.

new uni samples

for uni this year i have started work much earlier as my collection is going to be so much more knitting based. samples have already started to be made and i have been able to do new techniques.
Cables have always been a favourite of mine and these sample i really like.
