Do you need a little pizazz in your knitting routine? Are you ready for a new and exciting challenge? We hope you said ‘yes and yes’ because we’ve got a great new KAL with one of our favourite designers, Carol Feller, coming your way!
This year, the pattern we’ll be knitting along with Carol is the Wave Ripples Jumper, knitted in the gorgeous Surf shade of The Yarn Collective Bloomsbury DK. This DK weight merino wool yarn is totally swoon-worthy. It has a wonderfully soft handle, and the final spin has been plied together for a delicious drape. Each skein of yarn has been carefully hand-dyed, using the kettle dye technique, which gives stunning tonal nuances running throughout. You might experience some dye transfer on your hands while knitting with it - that’s natural!
The Wave Ripples jumper has a gentle cable wave flowing through the front and back that creates a beautiful central panel. The soft drape of this pattern along with the sublime sea-coloured yarn inspires brisk seaside strolls, and cosy fireside retreats.
I love both the peace and ferocity of the ocean. It can move from tranquility to danger in minutes and tosses up a huge mix of colours. The yarn for this jumper is the perfect reflection of that!" - Carol Feller
The construction of this jumper is a little bit different and will keep you guessing every step of the way! In her signature style, Carol will be releasing video clues with the written steps to help guide you through this quirky and tranquil KAL.
