The Merino Collection

Pink

I want to introduce my first knitwear collection.

Featuring a casual but elegant theme, the Merino Collection is a small collection of cardigan designs linked by yarn, texture and design.

The yarn I have chosen to use is Australian Superfine Merino by Cleckheaton.

Incorporating textured stitch-work into a design is important to me. In this collection, I have used the Trinity stitch which works well as an all-over stitch or in conjunction with other stitch patterns.

Trinity stitch which is also known as Bramble stitch, Cluster stitch, Raspberry stitch and Blackberry stitch, is knitted over four rows:

Trinity Stitch

Cast on a multiple of 4 sts plus 2.

Row 1: (RS) Purl

Row 2: (WS) k1* [k1, p1, k1] into the next st, p2tog; rep from * to last st, k1

Row 3: Purl

Row 4: k1, *p3tog, *[k1, p1, k1] into the next st; rep from * to last st, k1

Repeat rows 1-4.

Originality is also important to me and I have included a different rib band in one of the designs and an as yet to be named v-pattern stitch in two others.

The first two designs will be available for purchase in February 2018 via my website and Ravelry page. The third will be available in March.
