Just thought I’d post a photo of two of my Martin Storey Mystery Afghan squares knitted using Rowan’s Pure Wool Worsted in the shades Buttercup and Papaya.
I’m loving knitting with this yarn and the resulting fabric is quite cushiony and will make a lovely cuddly blanket! I hope everyone who is taking part in the knit-a-long is enjoying it too and ready for the next pattern which will be published on Monday 28 April. Don’t forget, the patterns are only available to Row@n members who can download them for free from the knitrowan website.
If you who are not taking part in the knit-a-long you can also find some free patterns to try out the Pure Wool Worsted yarn such as the Home Decor Collection, pictured on the left. It includes a collection of fourteen patterns for the home, designed exclusively for Knitrowan by their Rowan Ambassadors using Rowan Pure Wool Worsted. So, as I am a Rowan Ambassador, you will find my Wheel Barrel Cushion design, pictured below, to download along with other cushions, a table runner, a hot water bottle cover and things to knit for the home.
If you would rather knit something to wear there are also some children’s and ladies designs to download for free in the form of two online collections. The Childrens Online Collection consists of five classic designs all using Pure Wool Worsted. Patterns include simple cardigans and sweaters in a selection of bold colour ways. I love this cute round neck cardigan called Pipkin, pictured below, knitted in stocking stitch with contrast edgings and a stripe sequence on the sleeves.
The ladies online collection includes two sweaters, a slouchy cable shoulder bag and a cable hat and fingerless mittens that can both be knitted using just one ball of yarn. I would love to knit Cambern (pictured below) designed by Kathy Zimmerman. I am always attracted by eyelet stitches and love the frilled edging. I think I would like to knit it in Ivory, Azure or Breton, but I know that if I do get around to knitting it I will probably change my mind and knit it in one of the lovely pink colours like Raspberry.
