Fos­sil­i­sa­tion

The Knitter - - The Knitter loves - by Yarn Sto­ries

With tex­tured stitches in­spired by rock for­ma­tions, the new Fos­sil­i­sa­tion col­lec­tion from Yarn Sto­ries has a time­less look. The de­signs use Fine Merino DK yarn, and show­case the three new shades for au­tum­n­win­ter: Blue Grey, Pen­ste­mon and Heather.

The seven women’s gar­ments by Emma Vin­ing, Char­lotte John­son and Emma Wright in­clude a round-necked cardi­gan with lace pat­terns evok­ing fos­silised ferns. The ‘Agate’ cardi­gan has a more re­laxed fit, with its slanted ribbed front bands, and an in­trigu­ing stitch pat­tern that looks like fish scales.

Sweater styles in­clude ‘Shore­line’, a colour-block de­sign with a cen­tral rope ca­ble, and ‘Sani­bel’, which has multi-di­rec­tional tex­tured stripes. ‘Am­monite’ is a pretty slash-neck jumper com­bin­ing ca­bles and lace.

In­tro­duc­ing colour­work into the col­lec­tion is the ‘Sand­stone’ sweater, which pairs a tex­tured stripe pat­tern on the body with a Fair Isle band around the yoke in warm shades of an­thracite, black­berry and tof­fee.

PDF pat­terns cost £4 each. Com­plete knit­ting kits with yarn are also avail­able. For de­tails and to buy, visit www.yarn­sto­ries.com
