Knit de­signer Sarah Hat­ton talks about Greta, her tex­tured yoke cardi­gan for all sea­sons!

Knit Today Magazine - - My Favourites -

My knit­ting wish­list is ridicu­lously, al­most im­pos­si­bly, long. It’s not just that there’s aren’t enough knit­ting hours in the day (I think all knit­ters will agree with this), but my plight isn’t helped by see­ing pre­views of lovely, must-have Rowan de­signs.

It isn’t very of­ten I knit one of my own de­signs, but Greta from the Rowan Finest col­lec­tion was some­thing I wanted to make for my­self as soon as I sam­pled it. For the past few sea­sons it’s sweaters that have dom­i­nated the fash­ion trends, and while I of­ten think of knit­ting one, I al­ways end up mak­ing cardi­gans as they suit me more. It’s be­come a run­ning joke in the Rowan of­fice I love neat-shaped cardi­gans with three-quar­ter sleeves, so much so I man­age to fit one into nearly ev­ery col­lec­tion!

I also nor­mally end up knit­ting in grey, so the blue shade of this cardi­gan is a slight de­par­ture for me. The shade is called Haven and I love its rich­ness, which re­minds me of Devon blue­ware pot­tery, and works in all sea­sons. I’m a big fan of colour­work yoke cardi­gans, but my real pas­sion as a knit­ter is tex­ture, so I re­ally en­joyed work­ing the slip stitch pat­tern. I wear my Greta what­ever the weather and know I will do for years to come! sarah­hat­
