I am thrilled to announce the Cecelia Cowl, my new pattern for Loop, London.
One of my publishing highlights of 2015 was Sequence Knitting, written and published by Cecelia Campochiaro. The Cecelia cowl features the sequence knitting technique in its most basic form and it was only right that the pattern be named after the lady herself! I was lucky to meet Cecelia at TNNA and you can see a short video of her over on the Sequence Knitting post along with an in-depth chat with Tom of Holland about his thoughts on the book.
The pattern was developed to showcase Freia Super Bulky Ombré yarn which produces amazing stitch definition and with its stunning colour changes, I was keen to write a pattern that would use as much of the ball as possible and leave you with minimal wastage.
Knit on a 12mm, 60cm long circular needle, the cowl can easily be made over a couple of evenings and as I only recommend a gentle steam block (rather than a full wet block), it can be ready to wear in no time at all.
I have the incredible talents of Kristen Perers to thank for the stunning photographs which were styled by Susan Cropper (owner of Loop) and as always are just so so beautiful.
You can read more about the Cecelia Cowl, all the talented women involved in this project and, most importantly, download the pattern for free over on the Loop Knit Lounge blog. There’s also the chance to win a ball of Freia Fibers Super Bulky to knit your own version in as well – which colour would you choose?
