Kaffe’s Colours

The Knitter - - The Knitter Loves - by Kaffe Fas­sett

Felted Tweed is one of Rowan’s most pop­u­lar yarns. Now the iconic de­signer Kaffe Fas­sett, known for his breath­tak­ing colour­work, has created eight new colours for the yarn range, in­clud­ing warm or­ange, pink and pur­ple, a vivid elec­tric green, and a rich turquoise.

Kaffe has used the new shades of Felted Tweed to stun­ning ef­fect in his lat­est book,

Kaffe’s Colours. His trade­mark graphic in­tar­sia pat­tern­ing is in ev­i­dence, with checks, spots and tes­sel­lat­ing tiles tak­ing cen­tre stage.

The seven pat­terns for women in­clude a neat sweater dec­o­rated with tri­an­gle mo­tifs, and a ki­mono cardi­gan cov­ered with colour­ful in­tar­sia cir­cles. The in­tar­sia ‘Cool Weave’ wrap has a pat­tern inspired by bas­ketweave quilts, while zigzags, stripes and ‘Cir­cle in a Square’ pat­tern­ing show­case Kaffe’s vi­brant yarn shades on his three scarf de­signs.

The big­gest pro­ject in the col­lec­tion is ‘Checker­boards’, an in­cred­i­ble throw worked in Fair Isle and in­tar­sia, which is a riot of colour.

£12 for the book; in­di­vid­ual PDF pat­terns are £4 each. For stock­ist de­tails or to down­load PDF pat­terns, visit www.kni­trowan.com or call 01484 950630
