Here at Rowan we are really proud of our beautiful yarns and the second brochure in our Rowan Loves series supports two of our summer favourites - Handknit Cotton and Softknit Cotton.
Featuring 9 designs which can all be knit using either Handknit Cotton or Softknit Cotton, giving you plenty of options for these transeasonal classics. Several of the designs also offer design options making the design your own.
Though at first sight it appears incredibly complicated, you can soon learn to knit stunning lace with the help of this beautiful book. Ann's step-by-step illustrated tutorials and friendly text make mastering lace knitting skills simple, satisfying and fun. For speedy results the pattern collection includes some basic items that make ideal first lace projects.
Once Upon a Time is a celebration of British traditional handknits with a hint of crochet. Inspired by the vintage patterning of the 1940's and 1950's, these modern and classic fit garments are perfect projects for mums and grandmas alike and fun for kids to wear too.
The collection of sixteen designs includes some of Marie's signature fairisles and detailling, with a selection of the garments having optional crochet trims.
Let watery hues transport you to a place of calm, delightful relaxation. Influenced by a blend of diverese elements the collection plays with stripes, from subtle ticking to crisp cabled bands, while soft flounces and sheer knitted fabrics fit perfectly with a soft summer breeze letting you drift away to a state of bliss.
