One / Five – BT Winter 15

LInda Lencovic BEYUL, ISLINGTON - British BFL/Silk, Kettle Yarn Co., One / Five, TWIST- 100% British BFL fingering

I’ve decided to start a new feature for the blog. The ‘One / Five’ feature will show five Kettle Yarn Co. colour combos for one design. I’ve gotten a lot of feedback from people saying that they really like it when I do this kind of thing, so trying to do it a bit more this year!

I figure what better way to kick it off than with the new BT Winter 15 launch yesterday. Like most knitters, I eagerly await every new collection, and this one doesn’t disappoint! What a mouth-watering selection of gorgeous new patterns to queue!

The one that immediately caught my eye was the beautifully simple Agnes by Jared Flood:

A three colour, boxy pullover, I could see myself wearing this endlessly!

This one is open to so many different colour combos – the possible variations are endless! The obvious suggestion is the same tones as in the samples, but in a completely different blend for a more luxurious take on the otherwise rustic jumper using my sumptuous Islington BFL/Silk or Beyul yak/silk/merino (for people, like me, who are too damn sensitive for Brooklyn Tweed’s glorious yarn. Sigh.).

Then moving on to some uplifting blues in an ombre range, which would look fab with jeans.

Taking it to the other side of the colour wheel with some zingy warmth and the textural contrast of Islington’s silken drape with Beyul’s heathered yak nimbus:

And then back to the cools with a bright jewel tone and neutrals in bouncy, hard-wearing Twist:
