Crochet has been on trend for the last few seasons and it looks to remain very popular for winter 2012 and into spring 2013. Many of the influential designers have included crochet in their catwalk shows, helping to dispel the once ‘dowdy’ image of crochet and making it ‘chic’ and a must have item to wear. The Christopher Kane collection in particular received much acclaim, reviving the use of the traditional ‘granny square’. Looks can vary from the fitted, high round neck sweater to the grunge inspired loose structured knit.
Inspired by the 1960's 'Mod' look, this collection features strong graphic patterns and bold stripes. The designs predominantly feature our Rowan Kid Classic yarn with the addition of Kidsilk Haze to some designs to emphasize the trend for thick and thin textures.
Studio 27 is a fun and fresh collection designed by Amanda Crawford. 'Spring retro' look reflects the current trend for 1950's inspired fashion. Knitted in our ever popular Wool Cotton, this summery collection also introduces the new Wool Cotton 4 Ply.
Monochrome is always in fashion and keeps coming back around on all the catwalks. This edition of Rowan Studio shows the hand knit interpretation of this trend. Each garment has its own unique take on the black and white mix, some simple colour changes and more complex stitch patterns mean that there is a garment in this collection for all knitters from beginner to the more experienced.
