WOW! THEA COLEMAN MEETS WINTERBURN DK

Photography: Thea Colman/BabyCocktails

We always get excited when we hear an amazing designer is working with our yarns....what are they dreaming up? How will it turn out? What will they think of our yarns? We've been on tenterhooks for months after hugely talented US designer Thea Coleman revealed she was plotting a sweater in our new Winterburn DK. When she sent the photos through of her 'Herbsaint' in our Bramley Baths shade we were completely bowled over. Thea says:

"Herbsaint is my sweater to bridge the seasons this year, with short sleeves, an easy fit, and some gorgeous detail.  A simple tee is easy to wear with anything, and both the heather and drape of the Winterburn DK gives Herbsaint a delicate, but simple feel that's perfect for a late summer night or a crisp fall day.  The Winterburn DK is gorgeous in this design.  The subtle heathers in the colors pop beautifully in the cables, and add to the delicate feeling of the motif. Side to side construction is a fun change of direction, and once the top pieces are seamed, the bottom portion of the sweater is knit downwards in the round.  Herbsaint is also easy to modify for either length or width, and as always, notes on how and where to do so are included in the pattern."

Want to see some more pics? We thought so....

Herbsaint is sized from 36" to 56" using 4 to 6 hanks of Winterburn dk- click here to view our special Herbsaint page with all the details and to download the pattern from Ravelry. And, seeing as we love to treat you, download it this month and Thea will send you a special discount code which will give you 10% off your Winterburn DK purchase (minimum 4 hanks). Don't forget to share your finished creations with us on Instagram @baarameweknits :-)

Looking for a smaller project to try out our Winterburn DK? How about these beautiful Whitby socks by Alison Moreton from our Yorkshire Shores collection, inspired by the traditional Gansey stitch patterns of our region's coastal villages. You only need one hank for the smaller size, shown here in our Goathland shade. Wish you knew how to knit a sock? Get yourself a last minute spot on our next How to Knit Socks workshop this Saturday where you'll get all the skills you need.
