I am very pleased to be able to introduce the ninth pattern from Winter Blooms: Linden Tree.
Linden Tree is a flattering jumper knitted from the bottom-up. It is perfect for this autumnal weather where the weather can be hot one minute and cool the next.
It has a simple leaf lace and cable pattern that runs up the front of the jumper and incorporates an integral front pocket to keep hands warm.
The leaf lace and cable pattern is also repeated on the sleeves.
It has a wide square neck and subtle waist shaping to flatter, with long sleeves. I have knitted this sample in Quince & Co. Lark yarn in colourway Petal which is a beautiful pale peachy pink. This is lovely 100% wool yarn that is soft but warm in Worsted weight.
This beautiful yarn was the inspiration for the design. Linden Trees are important honey plants as their pretty flowers give a pale but richly-flavoured honey. We shot these photos earlier in the year in winter. The light was just beautiful with the sun shining through the leaves. It was very cold but the sweater warm.
Linden Tree can be purchased as a download here and the Winter Blooms book here. Newsletter subscribers will be given a discount - look out for my newsletter coming later this week with the release of the final pattern from Winter Blooms.
The Winter Blooms books have now arrived from the printer and I am so happy with how they have turned out. Pre-orders will be sent this week and the book will be released at Yarndale in Skipton next Saturday. Hope to see you there!
