Show & Tell - Part 4
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.
Next up, another jumper...
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.
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.

Worked in garter stitch the patterning looks good on both sides.
It's a similar effect to Caroline's Papillion shawl.
