Knit with Attitude
Yarn Kit - Blum Sweater by Rachel Illsley
Blum's stranded colourwork pattern is inspired by the work of a French tattoo artist of the same name, who creates beautifully delicate designs based on shapes, patterns and symbols found in nature.
Here at Knit with attitude we think that Blum must be one of the most stunning stranded knitting sweaters we've ever seen, taking inspiration from the design itself and not at least from its incredibly talented designer we have created a few kit oprions for you which we really feel pay tribute to the sentiment behind Blum.
Worked in the wonderful naturally dyed No.4 by G-uld, the subtle variegated shades create an organic flow that will truly make this design shine. Work this with two strands of No.4 held together to obtain correct gauge. For a more saturated look, that literarily ooze of luxury choose Norne Yarn's BFL / Silk / Cashmere Fingering. Both of these alternatives will create stunning results that will be tremendously fun to knit and which will take your breath away when finished and ready to wear.
