Rowan Yarns has teamed up with Martin Storey for another incredible Blanket Knit-a-Long.
The fun kicks off when the first square is released on January 28th. For this year’s blanket Martin looked to Northern European knitting traditions for inspiration, drawing patterns and textures from the Shetland Isles; the Faeroe Isles; Norway, Denmark, Sweden and Iceland. 8 squares will be released every two weeks over the course of the project, each knit 6 times, culminating in a stunning design made up of 48 squares in total. The final, and ninth release, May 12th features the edging design.
Also new this year, you can choose from four suggested palettes in Rowan Pure Wool Superwash Worsted, chosen to fit in with most popular, interior colour schemes. A very soft and natural palette: a calming, blue palette; a fresh green and a zingy, and a warm spice palette.
And don’t worry if you’re new to knitting! this KAL has been designed with the beginner knitter in mind. In this blanket you’ll create motifs in one color and two color squares. Delicate motifs in simple texture, lace and a further option that introduces the beginner knitter to a simple bead technique, patterns and different stitches.
