Echoes of Heather and Stone

The Knitter - - The Knitter Loves - By Carol Feller

Carol Feller has of­ten looked to the land­scapes of her na­tive Ire­land for in­spi­ra­tion when de­sign­ing her knitwear. For her new­est book, Carol and a host of in­ter­na­tional de­sign­ers have taken cues from Ire­land’s an­cient past to pro­duce a won­der­ful col­lec­tion of projects.

A range of tech­niques is on dis­play, such as the swirling ca­bles on Lucy Hague’s Ne­olithic-inspired shawl. The roll­neck ‘Sham­rock’ sweater by Justyna Lorkowska fea­tures in­tri­cate di­a­mond ca­bles, while dec­o­ra­tive slip stitch ca­bles travel across the sur­face of Amanda Sch­wabe’s long raglan cardi­gan.

Is­abell Krae­mer is well known for her seam­less sweater de­signs, and ‘Aine’ has an in­trigu­ing colour­work yoke pat­tern. Jennifer Wood brings her su­per-fem­i­nine style to the ‘Ahenny’ ca­bled jumper, and there are also beau­ti­ful ac­ces­sories from Woolly Worm­head and Karie Wester­mann.
