At Highland Crafters we are currently developing a new and exciting range of cardigans. The image below depicts our model Wioleta wearing a powder blue version of the simplistic classic cardigan design.
Alis Woods- our entrepreneur behind the Highland Crafters brand- has joined forces with Adrienne Larsen in combining their talents in order to create this new range. They have been working together with a view of creating this elegant and stylish vintage inspired vee and round-neck set. Pictured below are some of the original sketches on which the finished designs are based.
Alis has clearly been motivated by the ‘classic’ cardigan shape, but includes a retro twist with the puff shoulder detailing on the garments. We are presently considering a fairisle design to enhance the shoulder decoration even further, and we would love to hear suggestions from fairisle enthusiasts so don’t hesitate to get in touch!
The pattern kits for the cardigans will be available in fingering weight 4ply Scottish Lambswool. Of course it goes without saying that the yarns provided are all spun and dyed in Scotland, and the delicate colouring in inspired by our beautiful Scottish countryside. By purchasing one of our fairisle kits you have the ability to create or add to the design as much or as little as you choose.
We will keep you posted on the development of these pieces.
