Today’s blog post introduces the penultimate design from Cosy Knits. Lackenduff is a generously sized cable wrap designed by Louise Tilbrook and it makes me want to grab my needles and cast on straight away.
Lackenduff is an extremely versatile pattern. As written, it is a very generous shawl size but can easily be changed to either a scarf or blanket as you desire. The cable pattern is a very subtle, flat cable that allows the fabric to remain fluid rather than bulky as you would have with a thicker cable. The clever use of K1tbl here creates the perfect accent along the greater cable.
Here Louise chose to knit Lackenduff in the Kitten Fluff colourway and I do think that this pattern shows Nua worsted to it’s best and compliments the blend of merino, yak, and linen. This is a wrap that could easily be worn on an elegant night out or as a stunning accent throw if you choose to increase the size.
Louise Tilbrook is based in the UK and loves to support British Indie dyers. She can never resist a good hand-dyed semi-solid yarn, especially if it is teal. Her struggle to find sock patterns suitable for the men in my life which didn’t involve miles of stockinette led her to create a range of straightforward and elegant patterns, easily adaptable for men and women.
