About Farne

Farne is a cardigan full of knitterly interest, with richly textured stitch patterns covering the sweater with texture. The sleeves and yoke are knit with seed stitch and the body has a stunning shell-stitch pattern made with yarnovers and a clever combination of increases and decreases for undulating columns of stitches creating the appearance of shells. This is a lovely pattern to hone your lace knitting skills and a masterclass in sweater construction too!

Designed by a friend of The Fibre Co. Sarah Hatton for The Knitter Magazine Issue 176.

About the designer

Sarah was born in St Albans and spent the early part of her life-based in Hertfordshire. Having completed an art foundation course close to home she moved to Yorkshire to complete a degree in Fashion Design at Bretton Hall College, part of the University of Leeds.

Taught to knit at the age of five, Sarah has always had a love of textiles and had a passion for dressing up as a child. As a teenager, she showed a flair for customising her own clothes and was always up to the minute with fashion in her own dress sense. Immediately after graduating, Sarah was offered her first job as a designer with a hand-knit company. It was here she got to develop her skills in knitting, pattern writing and design. Sarah prides herself on the fact that since graduating she has always worked in the hand-knitting industry.

Sarah’s inspiration has a tendency to be garment shape and she rarely works in more than one colour, yet produces amazing wearable garments that explore and push the boundaries of shape and texture.

The Knitter is a British knitting magazine. ‘Enthusiastic knitters will find beautiful patterns to delight and inspire in this collectable magazine. You can order your yarn kit with Issue 176, or, if you already have it, order the kit without the pattern.
