With the Autumn equinox yesterday, we’re certainly feeling the switch in the seasons! As we can see in our Raverly forums, you folks are ready with your needles to embrace the cooler weather. One of the top knits so far from Issue 18 is the Asklöv hat and we thought we should share the love (or should that be Ask-löve?)
Designer Nicolina Lindsten was inspired by the leaves on an ash tree and transformed the shape into a delicate motif for this cosy beanie. The striking contrast of Riihivilla Velho, naturally dyed with Buckthorn, reminds us of low winter sun turning golden through the trees. These versions are fuelling our autumn dreams of frosty walks through crunchy fallen leaves – wearing the most appropriately themed hat of course!
Don’t forget we’re also at Yarndale this weekend at stall number 113 – see you there!
