Though we’re soon to reveal your new favourite projects in our summer issue, we’ve still got room in our hearts (and on our needles) for those classic Pom Pom knits. Almost two years ago on the blog we introduced you lovely knitters to Alicia Plummer‘s Campside, a cosy hug of a shawl with a cascade of delicate eyelets knit in Julie Asselin’s Leizu DK. And as it is the season for it, we’ve given this pattern a spring clean, which means it now features charts and written instructions plus some pesky errata has been tidied away too!
The design was Alicia’s way to embody the memories of her childhood spent in a much loved lakeside cabin with her father. You can read the original blog post here, about how our collaboration came about and Alicia’s process behind Campside about how we create much more than just a piece of fabric when we knit.
Since this design has been published we’ve loved seeing different versions from you lovely Pom Pom people.
So what are you waiting for? You can download the pattern here.
And a very heartfelt thank you again to Alicia for sharing her pattern with us!
