Mary Hen­der­son LOVELACE

The Knitter - - Lovelace -

US­ING THREE bright colours on a back­ground of deep blue, the slip stitch pat­tern­ing on this cardi­gan pro­duces a smart checked fabric. This is con­trasted beau­ti­fully by a lace rib pat­tern on the edg­ings and sleeves, and which is also used on the un­usual sad­dle shoul­ders. Mary Hen­der­son’s de­sign is knit­ted in Devo­nia, a soft and lus­trous blend of three Bri­tish wools pro­duced by Devon spin­ner John Ar­bon. It is avail­able in a pal­ette of 14 rich shades.
