GREETINGS MR BINGLEY!

As well as our brand new colourful edition of Learn to Knit at Home, this season also see the release of Alison Moreton's Landmark Collection as one booklet, bringing together 6 unique designs inspired by key Yorkshire landmarks. This week we've picked out the simple and versatile Bingley sweater, inspired by the infamous Bingley Five Rise Locks on the Leeds and Liverpool canal:

Completed in 1774, the locks were a major engineering achievement at the time, forming a stair case that allowed the canal to rise 18 metre in the shortest possible length, making them the steepest flight of locks in the UK. Although the canal is no longer used for transport, it is well used by leisure boaters, walkers and gongoozlers (canal-speak for idle watchers!). Alison wanted to represent this icon of the canals in Yorkshire with a comfortable unisex sweater, knitted in the round with short row shaping a the neck. The five locks with six pairs of lock gates are represented in a subtle knit and purl pattern on the yoke of the sweater: 
Originally knitted in our Dovestone dk, the new Landmark Collection book shows it also works perfectly in our brand new Winterburn dk, using 5 to 9 hanks sized from a 30 to 52 inch chest. Fancy giving it a try? Buy 5 or more hanks of Winterburn dk from us either online or in store and we'll give you a copy of Bingley absolutely free! Just enter the code MRBINGLEY at the checkout. Offer lasts until the next edition of Field Notes so don't miss out.
And you you recognise the handsome chap modelling Bingley? Manu of you may remember Graeme Knowles-Miller (known to us as Our Graeme) from our Harrogate shop, as well as being a workshop tutor and designer for us. We're delighted to welcome Graeme fully back in to the baa ram ewe team, working with Rchel on our trade sales and helping out at shows and events. It's lovely to have you back Our Graeme!
