Back in September 2014 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! We are over the moon, and with thanks to dear Pom friend Julie Asselin for her help in making this happen, to have the pattern translated and now available in French 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?
UPDATE March 2020! We’ve tweaked the Ribbed Edging instructions for clarity, so please make sure you are working from the file with ‘2020 Update’ in the title.
And a very heartfelt thank you again to Alicia for sharing her pattern with us and to Julie Asselin and Elise Dupont for helping with the French translation.
