  • Beetle Magic – Knitting Pattern & Kit

    From: £48.50
    Beetle Magic is a circular yoke jumper by Katie Green. It was inspired by our magically-marled Chimera yarn!
     
    Beetle Magic is knitted seamlessly from the top down with short row shaping at the back to ensure a comfortable fit. The body is knitted straight from underarm to hem, without waist shaping. The length of the body and sleeves can be adjusted to your preference by trying on the garment as you work. Please note that if you wish to add length, more yarn will be required.

  • Prism is a colourwork yoke jumper with a geometric design, for fun colour-play with highly colourful marled or variegated yarns. It was remembering that wonderful childhood toy, the kaleidoscope, that set me off doodling prisms. The concentric bands of triangles remind me of the twisting motion that creates endless new views through the 'scope.
     
    The yoke includes two colourways of our magically-marled Chimera for an indulgent use of colour, while keeping the knitting deceptively simple. The main colour is Severn 4 Ply, a woollen-spun Jacob wool yarn that is as lightweight as it is cosy and warm.

  • Luminous Flux is the measure of the perceived level of light. With this high-vis hat, you will certainly be easily perceived! The bold graphic look is created with a textured colourwork technique that is half stranded knitting and half knit-purl patterning. Choose your style and knit either a slouchy hat or a beanie.
     
    The hat has been designed to use our woollen spun Severn (Jacob wool) yarn, but any toothy non-superwash wool will work well. If choosing your own colours, try to select a light, medium, and dark shade to ensure that each one has enough contrast against the others.
