Every so often, a yarn comes along that seems to stand out in the crowd, confident enough to be just a little different from the rest, and as knitters like to refer to it, the ‘ah-ha’ yarn. This season Sirdar has created just that, a wonderful hazy aura of soft fibre spun with a tweedy slub of cotton at its core, knitting up to a chunky gauge without the weightiness and overheated feeling of wool.
Named after the goddess of love, Freya comes in a palette of eight soothing neutral tones- Lapland, First Frost, Baffin, Forget-Me-Not, Dusk, Caribou, Felt, and Gosling with a collection of twenty appealing designs for children to adults-
The essential boyfriend cardigan is knit in a simple tuck stitch adorned with patch pockets and the option of a classic neckline or shawl collar. Sized from four years to adult. Lapland (shown above).
Catch the autumn breeze with this pretty windmill cable design, available to knit as a longer tunic with a polo neck or a traditional sweater length with crew neck. Baffin (shown above).
Fall cannot come soon enough to wear this lightweight jacket, designed with a flattering collar worn open as shown or buttoned to the side. Choose from two lengths. Baffin (shown above).
Intarsia diamonds add a playful interlude from the cable and wide rib detail in this pullover as well as a chance to experiment and blend more than one colour together. Caribou, Dusk, and Felt (shown above).
Cosy cowls, scarves and handknit mittens are a girl’s best friend for the coming season, just take your pick from this great collection of accessories.
Lightly layered, this vest is a key element to dressing comfortably as the weather changes from warm and sunny to cool and cloudy. Only three balls are required for a women’s size and don’t forget Freya is an easy care yarn, suitable for washing in the machine. Dusk (shown above).
