Cross-Country Knitting Volume Three
Birds are the focus of Cross-Country Knitting Volume 3 by the design duo Kate Davies and Jen Arnall-Culliford. Kate's design is the Murmuration Scarf, and it was inspired by spectacular collective displays of starlings. Whilst Jen has designed a hat and mittens featuring her favourite bird the Atlantic Puffin; Fufnip Hat & Mittens.
Cross-Country Knitting, volume 3 includes the patterns for the murmuration scarf, and the Fufnip hat and mitts. There is also an essay written by Kate about the love of birds that she and Jen share.
