Saudade — Kit

Jamieson & Smith

A slightly slouchy Fair Isle patterned beanie in one of my favourite colour combinations — grellow. Deep ribbing keeps things simple and streamlined from the front, with the colourful Fair Isle a beautiful surprise when you turn your head. The kit contains the yarn needed and a printed copy of the pattern.

The stitch patterns make a sampler of traditional peerie and “X and O” motifs that’s a fun way to try out stranded colourwork or to play with colour shading if you’re more experienced. Three shades of grey and two of yellow are used to subtly shade the patterns. Which colours are contrasted and which blended, which are background and which are pattern, changes throughout to create a lively sense of movement.

Saudade has been a bestseller since we launched the store and I have wanted to do a new colourway for some time. The different oranges in the new version combine with the neutrals to make for a more autumnal feel.
