We've just released our latest pattern - Bracklinn Crop! It's a super cute cropped tee worked from the top down with an "easier than it looks" lace pattern. Designed for mini-skein sets or leftover sock yarn - with detailed instructions on using more/fewer colours.
It's available in nine sizes too, to fit busts from 28" - 62", and it's been thoroughly tech edited and test knitted.
It's available here on our website and also on Etsy and Ravelry - use coupon code BRACKLINN50 for a 50% discount until midnight (GMT) on Wednesday 5th Aug.
We've got a few new test knits on the go at the moment too! One's sweet and simple children’s sweater with zigzag colourwork detailing. Worked from the top down using a yoked construction, this straightforward knit is totally seamless. Available in 9 sizes to fit newborns to 11 year olds:
The next is a worsted weight version of our classic winter warmer, Courie In. It's got a slightly unusual construction. Sleeves are knitted first from cuff to centre back, then both sleeves are joined with a three needle bind off. Stitches are picked up at the bottom edge from underarm to underarm and worked down to the hem to form the back. Then stitches are picked up round the front to form the garter stitch wrap front. There's instructions for nine sizes to fit busts from 26” to 60”/65 to 150 cm, and I'm looking for two testers per size ideally.
Apart from all this knitting I've been trying to chill out and enjoy month seven of pregnancy! Not always easy when your back's aching and you can't sleep due to a baby practicing for future dance-offs in the womb! Here's a bump pic, again modelling my new design Worsted Courie In!
The weather here in Glasgow's been pretty poor, even by Scottish standards! But still managed a bit of time out in the garden, there's quite a lot of veg still growing and the sweet peas are thriving!
A cute cropped cardigan with a pretty lace yoke. Worked with a yoked construction from the top down, this is a quick to knit, but lightweight, warm weather cardigan. Available in 8 sizes to fit bust from 75 to 150 cm/30” to 60”. Lace patterns have both charts and written instructions, we include both metric and imperial measurements, and most importantly – it’s totally seamless!
Au Jardin is French for “in the garden” which is a perfect fit for this pattern’s floral lace motif in an amazingly soft French yarn, available in gorgeous handdyed shades.
It's available now here on our website, on Ravelry and in our Etsy shop, Use coupon code JARDIN50 for a 50% discount, valid until 22nd July.
Test knit our latest design - Glen Shiel Cardigan
An exciting opportunity to be the first to knit our latest design!
A classic cardigan with a pretty lace pattern and a cosy shawl front. The lace pattern is simple and straightforward, and it knits up fast with DK yarn and larger needles. This is a perfect winter warmer – one you’ll want to snuggle up in every day!
This cardigan is worked in one piece from the hem up to the underarms, then stitches are divided and we work the two fronts and the back separately, then we rejoin fronts and back with a three needle bind off at the shoulder. Pick up stitches round the armhole for sleeves which are worked flat and seamed, and to finish off pick up stitches round the front of the cardigan for a shawl collar.
