In Simply Knitting issue 101 our cover project is this rustic jumper by Marie Wallin.
Traditional knitwear motifs are very much in fashion this season, and this flattering jumper from Marie Wallin with its Fair Isle yoke fits right in with the trend. The jumper is knitted in superbly soft Rowan Tweed, which is 100% wool – ideal for keeping winter chills at bay.
“Rowan Tweed draws on heritage fabrics reworked into a contemporary take on traditional countrywear, and this jumper is a laidback, easy-to-wear interpretation of this,” says Marie.
The colour palette of blues and white are a nod to the legacy of Fair Isle jumpers, and make it a perfect garment to wear on cliff top walks. Alternatively, we think it would look the part in a rustic pub, particularly one with a blazing open fire to keep snug by!
