  • The pattern has two sizes given and two different weights.  So you can knit a small cowl that will pull over your head and give a snug, tuck-into-your-coat cowl (like the London Cowling) if you knit the smallest size in the DK. The larger one gives a cowl that you can twist and wrap round twice for warmth / effect. The Chunky yarn will give cowls that are slightly bigger in circumference than the DK ones, measurements given below. We have knitted the cowl in our DK yarn – you will need 2 x 50g balls for the small size and 4 x 50g balls for the large. We have also knitted it in Town End Pure Natural Aran Alpaca and you will need 3 50g balls for the small size. The pattern is easily adapted for any yarn if you knit a tension square first.

    Finished measurements: For the DK (and our Aran version) cowl: 58(116)cm / 23(45¾)” circumference, depth 31cm / 12¼”.

     

  • Ransome is suitable for boys or girls, a classic British jumper (sweater, to those of you not from these isles!). Moss st edgings and a neat stripe and slip stitch pattern for small sailors (or landlubbers). The neck here is wider, partly for ease of putting on and partly to make it easier to fit a nice shirt underneath. As the yarn comes in 50g balls then you’ll have leftovers after working the stripe pattern, we’re working on a pattern for those…

    Sizing: To fit age 2(3, 4, 5, 6) years. Actual size 64(68, 73, 78, 82)cm / 25(26¾, 28¾, 30¾, 32¼)”.

  • The Walker Cardigan is more feminine than the Blackett Cardigan, a classic, slightly lacy cardi in moss st and a leafy lace with a few bobbles thrown in on the sleeves. We like to think that the Walker girls would have been dressed in similar cardis when they were dreaming of being explorers in the Lakes aboard the Swallow. The bobbles are very easy, as is the leafy lace pattern on the fronts and the sleeves.

    Sizing: Five – to fit ages 2(3, 4, 5, 6) years, actual chest size: 64(68, 73, 78, 82)cm / 25(26¾, 28¾, 30¾, 32¼)”, buttoned.

  • Ishbel is a simple shawl pattern that can be worked in two sizes and two different yarn weights. The smaller, 4ply version makes a cosy, but pretty scarf while the larger, 2ply version can be worn as a scarf or draped elegantly around the shoulders. The solid stockinette centre lends simplicity to the design and adds extra warmth when knitted in thicker yarn. Ishbel is edged with a beautiful vine pattern and finished with elegant scalloped points. The shawl begins at the centre and is worked outwards to the edging. working increases at both ends of every row, rather than every second, creates a relatively shallow triangular shawl that makes the perfect shape to wear as a scarf. Either size can of course be worked in either yarn weight.
    The small version is approximately 123 cm wide and 37 cm long at the centre. It takes two 50g balls of Town End pure 2ply or 4ply alpaca, or one skein of our sock weight yarn.
    The larger version is approximately 168 cm wide and 50 cm long at the centre. It takes three 50g balls of Town End pure 2ply or 4ply alpaca.
