We wanted to get in touch regarding some changes that we will be making to the Rowan range for Autumn Winter 2016. You may have heard some scraps of information alongside some rumours, so we wanted to bring you the official, latest news straight from the Rowan team.
Thursday 28th January sees the start of the Knit Along 2016, with the first square – the Moss Heart Square – being released for you to download for free. Each square will be released every fortnight and there will be eight squares in total and a garter stitch trim. Martin Storey has recorded an introduction video to the Knit Along, which you can view here. Don’t miss the shopping list if you haven’t ordered the yarn for your blanket yet! (For stage seven, if you choose to do the beaded option, you will also need to purchase 180 size 6 Debbie Abrahams beads of your colour choice.) We’d love to hear your progress on our Facebook and Ravelry pages, so please check in and tell us how you are doing.
The 28th January 2016 will bring a brand new, fabulous Pure Wool
Superwash Worsted blanket knit along, with squares being released each
fortnight to culminate in a stunning design made up of 48 squares in
total. The knit along presents itself as the natural next stage to
Martin’s first knit along, although you do not have to had participated
in that one to join in this January’s fun.
To celebrate the new characters coming to Mossy Bottom Farm; three mischievous llamas, we have teamed up with Shaun the Sheep to create another “baa-rilliant” winter woolly competition with some Shaun the Sheep and Rowan goodies to be won.
The end of January will bring a brand new, fabulous Pure Wool Superwash Worsted blanket knit along, with squares being released each fortnight to culminate in a stunning design made up of 48 squares in total. Why not get prepared ahead and download your shopping list – available now.
This autumn, we are celebrating teaming up with Swarovski CREATE YOUR STYLE by
launching a sparkling design competition. Be inspired by the party season
and design a shimmering accessory piece using Rowan yarn and Swarovski CREATE YOUR STYLE crystals.
Later this month, Amy Herzog will launch a special Options Knit
Along featuring Rowan Pure Wool Superwash DK. There will be two project
options; a stockinette, crew-neck pullover with a sand-stitch textured
front and a striped v-neck three quarter length sleeved cardigan.
