Freya by Sirdar

Saturday, August 24th, 2013

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.

Short and sweet, this comfy jacket and sleeveless vest both feature a ribbed hood which gets rids of the extra bulk and lies quite flat when not in use.  Gosling (shown above).
