As soon as the Twinleaf pattern by Grace Anna Farrow for Kelbourne Woolens came out I knew I wanted to knit it! Since then it's been quietly calling to me from the depths of my stash, and I finally had to cast on. It has such a classic look, but the lines add just enough edge to make it unique.
Pattern: Twinleaf by Grace Anna Farrow
Yarn: The Fibre Co. Meadow - 2 skeins in Larkspur (MC) and 1 skien in Queen Anne's Lace (CC)
Size Made: one size
Modifications: I ran out of the main color with about 10 or 12 rows left, but it blocked out to the original’s measurements
When you first start knitting with Meadow initially the linen feels slightly rigid, but a few days of hanging out in your project bag and working with it and it softens right up!
The fabric Meadow makes after knitting is sooo lightweight with amazing drape and just the right amount of warmth. It has a unique fiber blend (40% merino wool, 25% baby llama, 20% silk, 15% linen) that is unlike most yarns on the market and is a joy to work with.
I decided that I wanted something versatile, that I could wear with jeans or dress up so I opted for more saturated, neutral colors. It ended up being the perfect choice.
Don't let the short rows on this project intimidate you! Find a video online, or pop into the shop and ask. You'll be glad you did! This is a project you CAN accomplish!
