FEATURED DESIGN : SALTWICK BAY PONCHO
Designed by our Graeme this is what he had to say about it:
"Saltwick Bay is a stylish poncho combining traditional motifs from three gansey locations. At the centre of this cosy poncho, elongated moss and ladders are taken from Scarborough’s simple yoke design. Further up the coast and outwards on the yoke, Robin Hood’s Bay adds a simple 1x1 moss and cable column. The sides are then finished with Whitby’s irrefutable signature, the Betty Martin and cables combination, so named after a well-known local with a reputation for knitting quality ganseys."
Originally designed in Dovestone dk this stylish poncho can also be knitted in our Winterburn dk. Available in 20 shades, Winterburn dk is a blend of 50% Bluefaced Leicester Wool, 25% ecru Masham and 25% dark brown Masham spun and dyed in Yorkshire.
This design takes just 5 skeins of Winterburn dk to knit. Featured in shade Yorkstone, this poncho is the perfect garment for these cool spring days.

Here is what knitters have been saying about it:
"I LOVE working with this yarn. I have both Dovestone and Winterburn and think that they are quite comparable." - Kathy
"I loved Dovestone so when I heard it was being discontinued I was quite sad... until I tried the Winterburn. Wow - it's even nicer. It comes in all the same gorgeous colours but it seems to bloom a little more." - Vicki
"Very pleased that you have made such a lovely replacement for Dovestone. Bravo for keeping the same fabulous colours." - Anne
