Un­til now, Erika Knight’s Bri­tish Blue yarn had only been avail­able in 25g balls. Fans of this gor­geous Blue­faced Leices­ter wool - and its sump­tu­ous colour pal­ette - will be de­lighted to hear that it is now sold in 100g hanks, too.

To cel­e­brate, there is a new col­lec­tion of pat­terns for men and women, de­signed by Erika, Emma Wright, and Jeanette Sloan. They have been in­flu­enced by Charleston, the spir­i­tual home of the Blooms­bury Group.

Pat­tern leaflets in­clude ‘Molly’, a fem­i­nine sweater with trel­lis lace pan­els and frilled shoul­ders. ‘An­gel­ica’ is an A-line sweater with a patch­work of ca­ble and Aran stitches, and ‘Dora’ is a ki­mono-style top ideal for lay­er­ing.

Other re­laxed de­signs with an artis­tic feel in­clude ‘Vir­ginia’, a loose tu­nic with asym­met­ric ca­ble de­tails, and ‘Dun­can’, a slim-fit­ting vest for men with hor­i­zon­tal and ver­ti­cal rib pat­terns. Dig­i­tal pat­terns cost £4 each. Find de­tails at www.erikaknight.co.uk or on Ravelry.com
