My design ideas and advice: One of the things I love about designing is making knitters’ dreams a reality – designing the patterns they ask for when they pop into the Purl &Jane Skipton studio. And there have been a few requests for a top like today’s pattern, the Clayton Vest. However, I have to admit, this one is pure indulgence for me. It is everything I love about a hand knit. It is a simple, easy to knit stitch pattern in simple shapes that let the yarn drape and do it’s thing. And the yarn that’s doing it’s thing in this instance is the new Purl&Jane Cuckoo Cashmere 4 ply. It is so gorgeously soft and light it doesn’t feel like you are wearing anything! It is an undyed natural shade. I used to wear a lot of black when I was younger, I’ve added a bit of colour nowadays – well, navy anyway! However after knitting with undyed natural shades I am wearing and loving lighter shades so much so I am getting excited about wearing my first cream hand knit!
