Autumn: Eryn - meaning forest

An Elven Reckoning - a year of knits from the last homely house is a collection of twelve beautiful garments and accessories inspired by the stories of Elves that inhabit Middle-Earth from J.R.R. Tolkien’s books.
In this book designer Sarah Alderson will take you on a journey through the six seasons that make up an elven reckoning.
The twelve beautiful patterns feature a wide range of design elements, from cables to stranded colourwork, slipped stitch patterns to lace. Sarah has created a pattern for every person (and Elf!).

A light sweater to wear as autumn starts to turn the leaves and cooler weather descends.

Knit in the round at a loose gauge, this comfortable sweater has three quarter length sleeves and A-line shaping to complement the leaf lace front detail.
