Eden Cottage Yarns and Joanne Scrace have collaborated on a brand new collection for the Milburn 4ply yarn range, a luxury blend of 85% British Bluefaced Leicester and 15% silk. Encompassing both knitting and crochet patterns, the collection showcases the versatility of this beautiful yarn.
Passionate about knitting for a purpose, Victoria and Joanne were keen that the designs had a strong emphasis on wearable, everyday wardrobe staples to take you through every season. Milburn is just too nice to knit something and pop it in a drawer for safe keeping. This lustrous and silky yarn cries out to be worn at every opportunity.
The Bletchley Collection explores early computing and encoding machines and the codes themselves, along with the women that operated them. Drawing on these influences, the shapes and styles in the patterns are a nod to the 1940s, reworked in a modern way to make them wearable for current times.
Comprising both knitted and crocheted designs and with skill levels from easy through to intermediate, there is something to suit all abilities, tastes and budgets.
Everything Bletchley related is now available on the Eden Cottage Yarns website – there are print patterns, kits, and pre-orders for the print book. The print patterns and book come with a complimentary digital copy. The book is due to be released on the 30th of January and we will be posting out pre-ordered copies to hopefully arrive on the day (postal systems depending).
The kits for the cardigans cleverly enable you to choose both your colour AND sizing, to ensure you get the correct quantity of yarn for your project.
