Take a trip to the Borrowdale Valley, one of the most idyllic places in England and the backdrop for our stunning new collection. Showcasing the work of 16 exceptionally talented designers, each piece in Borrowdale is designed using our glorious new yarn for Autumn 2018, Lore. These garments and accessories are designed for everyday adventures; to be thrown on with your favourite pair of jeans and hiking boots, or wrapped up in as you snuggle on the sofa. We hope you’ll be inspired to cast on something lovely and remember this special place in the Lake District.
Dove Cottage Pattern
by Emma Wright
Dove Cottage is a relaxed, drop-shoulder sweater with a playful band of colourwork around the bottom edge of the sweater and sleeves. Knitted in pieces using Lore, the lambswool blooms when washed to create a beautiful, harmonious fabric. The cosy funnel neck adds a modern touch and protects your neck from the Winter winds.
