The third sweater in our series, this gorgeous design was created for Uist Wool by Flora Kennedy / Inner Wild. Based in the Northern-most point of Uist, Flora takes inspiration from her surroundings.
Inspired by the rhythmic, ribbed lines of a Lovage plant stem and like run rigs hugging the land the Lovage Sweater is designed to be a snug fit so that the ribbing opens and closes, organically wrapping around and flowing over your body’s natural curves.
The Lovage Sweater pattern is ideal for the voluminous bounce of Uist Wool’s yarns. The 4 x 4 ribbing creates a unique swing that contours the body. A light but cozy sweater perfect for Spring or Autumn (or Hebridean Summer) evenings.
The kit contains pattern and 4 or 5 x 100g skeins DK yarn, depending on your choice of size. Available in all DK yarns.
Uist Wool DK, Small 4 x 100g skeins; Medium & Large 5 x 100g skeins.
