    Time to Get Cosy! - Tangled Yarn

    I'm excited this week because the much-anticipated book from Stolen Stitches has arrived! Cosy Knits is a collection of nine knitting patterns from some very talented designers. Each design triumphantly shows of Nua Worsted to its very best with plush cables, dreamy sweaters and essential winter accessories. Let's take a closer look at what Carol Feller and her collaborative team have in store for us.


    Inglenook by Joan Forigone

    A great layering piece for your winter wardrobe Inglenook is a simple vest knit in garter stitch. Framed with chunky verticle cables with a high/low hem with side slits. There's the option to knit a separate, removable cowl with the same central cable.

    Comerford by Kate Heppell

    Cropped sweaters are simply the best when it comes to winter; they are great worn with high waisted jeans or over dresses and tunics. Kate Heppell's pattern Comerford is one of my favourite designs in Cosy Knits; I love the intricate stitch detail on the yoke. I can't wait to cast this one.

    Móin by Eimear Earley

    Cowls are my go-to accessory during the cold months; they are by far more versatile than scarves and a great way to accessorises an outfit while keeping warm at the same time. Móin is knit in two colours of Nua Worsted. Knit in the round is predominately garter stitch stripes with a cable motif which was inspired by classic rope cables that are often featured on traditional Aran sweaters.

These textured stitches make the shawl warm and cosy, it's edged in a corrugated trim which is knit in a contrast colour of Nua Worsted creates weight and adds a little swish!
