Show & Tell is our occasional series showcasing our customer's projects. You can read previous blog posts here, here and here.

This edition of Show & Tell has 2 jumpers and a shawl (and a few of our shop samples too!)


First up is Anne-Marie's Unbearable jumper knitted for her Dad.

Unbearable Hoodie by Les Garçons features a striking and fun stranded colourwork yoke of... bears!

Knitted in a DK thickness, Anne-Marie used WYS ColourLab DK in Stormy Grey, Cream, Pear Green and Perfectly Plum.

She changed this from a hoodie to a round-neck by working a 2x2 rib instead of the provisional cast on instructed in the pattern.

There is also a toddler and kids version of this sweater and a hat too.


Next up, another jumper...

Ben by Norah Gaughan, available at Berroco


This one was knitted by Jude for her fiancée.

Ben is a free pattern by Norah Gaughan and is available at Berroco. It has an all over 6 stitch cable pattern with a nice garter stitch detail.

Jude used WYS Croft Aran in rich green shade, Fetlar.


Croft is a machine washable 100% Shetland wool and comes in lots of shades, including a tweedy print. We've got three samples in the shop if you fancy a squish.

There is a gansey inspired kids sweater from the Family Collection pattern book and available as a single digital pattern on Ravelry.

Grantley comes in sizes 3 to 12 years and we've used shade Fetlar to knit ours.

There's also an adult round neck cardigan knitted in shade Clousta, a subtle mauve printed yarn. 

Elspeth is part of a pattern book from West Yorkshire Spinners. It’s knitted flat, then sewn together.  It has simple shaping and would make a good beginner garment project. Using the tweed effect Croft will also help conceal any wobbly stitches!

We’ve also used WYS Croft in our Nightshift Shawl.

Our final Show & Tell project is from Sabine who used Rowan Felted Tweed Colour, an ombre effect yarn, and Felted Tweed, a solid colour yarn, to make Peacock Feathers - an asymmetrical shawl which uses short rows to create shapes of colour.

Sabine used shade 22 Ripe in Felted Tweed Colour and Felted Tweed in shade Scree.

Worked in garter stitch the patterning looks good on both sides.

It's a similar effect to Caroline's Papillion shawl.
