It’s that time of year again, time for the Edinburgh Yarn Festival! This year we will be sharing a booth (M9) with the lovely Nina of Rainbow Heirloom, and to celebrate we have a new pattern, Ridgeline, in the newest Rainbow Heirloom yarn: Heritage DK. We will be giving away 25 copies of Ridgeline to the first 25 people to the booth on Friday and Saturday!
Highlights from EYF 2016!
Ridgeline is a hat and mitten set inspired by those excellent vintage photographs of people on the ski slopes. Picture a gal in a warm hand knit toque and mittens thrown on, perhaps, with a fair isle yoked sweater, long wooden skis, and a smile. This set features graphic chevrons that shift the colour from one to the next. I have been enjoying colours in 3s lately so this set fit the bill!
