About Perseids Sweater

The Perseids are a prolific meteor shower which have the appearance of originating from the constellation Perseus. The meteors appear to twinkle delicately in the night sky of the Perseids Sweater, designed by Lotta H Löthgren, who was inspired by her recent study of the meteor shower. The Perseids Sweater plays on traditional Nordic designs for stranded colour-work yoke to create a classic sweater pattern. This is a beautiful project for the ambitious beginner who would like to try a colour-work garment.

This sweater is knitted seamlessly in the round from the top down. The work is separated after the yoke is finished, and the body and sleeves are worked separately. The pattern gives instructions for shaping the upper back neck by working German Short Rows and creating a flexible bottom edge with an elastic cast-off method.

Available as a Legendary Gift Bundle! 

Inspired by the Perseids meteor show, this bundle includes a PDF version of the Perseids Sweater knitting pattern, our beautiful Cumbria yarn and the addition of either a Marra Project Bag or Marra Tote Bag. Both bags carry over 600 g worth of yarn and come in 7 beautiful colours.

Introducing: The Almanac Series II

The Almanac Series II is a seasonal guide to knitting with The Fibre Co. yarns. Based on the original farmer’s Almanac guide to the seasons, this collection celebrates each month of the year with our Yarn of the Month and a new design launch in that yarn.

For this Series, we looked to the heavens for inspiration. The beauty and grandeur of the night sky and awe-inspiring astronomical phenomena guided our creativity. As the season turns here in the Northern hemisphere, and the temperature begins to cool, we embrace our warmer yarns with each month. August is Road to China Light, September is Arranmore Light, October is Lore, November is Cumbria Fingering, December is Tundra, and January is Cumbria.

The hibernating winter world is celebrated in our Yarn of the Month for January, Cumbria—but we were so keen to share this design for those who would like to knit it in time for Christmas, that we couldn’t wait. This worsted-weight yarn is a beautiful blend of English Masham wool, Argentinian mohair and the finest Merino, for classic blend that is warm and strong, creating fabrics with a lustrous finish to be worn daily in this cold season with love!
