Winter-weary knitter desperately seeking exciting new yarn with a sunny disposition, and outgoing personality (only natural yarns need apply). Its that time of year when we are all getting a little antsy to shed those heavy layers and get the jump on spring knitting with lightweight cotton yarns and inspiring designs.
Sirdar is breezing into shops with newly-released Beachcomber, a barely-there comfortable cotton dk, slubby in nature, available in a mix of solid shades and space-dyed multis, and accompanied by a collection of eleven contemporary styles (sized from four years to large adult) in leaflet or booklet form.
The classic LWC (Little White Cardigan) is always a hot commodity from May until September. This lace panel design features a choice of short or long sleeves and really adds a crisp finished look to a work or play outfit. White (shown above).
Rev things up with a fresh squeeze of lime in this relaxed cap sleeve top, knit in Beachcomber, uniquely-dyed to create an interesting blend of texture and colour shifting. Catch The Sun (shown above).
Go boldly into warmer weather with a hot hue that will wake nature from its long slumber. Sized from four years to large adult, with optional long or cap sleeves, this eye-catching design is knit from side to side in a wide cable repeat bordered by dropped stitches. Paradise (shown above).
Out for a walk on the beach or playing at the park, this cute sleeveless shell suits the destination to a tee, a fun project to knit, creatively constructed with central and side shaping to form a chevron. Collecting Shells (shown above).
A girl can never have too many cardigans in her closet, can she? They are truly the best cover ups for tees to sundresses and everything in between. This v neck design is styled to fit longer in the torso with an airy openwork pattern for pizazz. Choose your preferred sleeve length. Paradise and Surfer Blue (shown above).
