Tales from the Isle of Purbeck - MKAL
All four clues have now been released and you will receive the whole pattern when purchased.
Unlike typical Mystery knit alongs, here you won’t find a project using multiple colours, dramatic stitch pattern changes or unusual shapes, but a gentle piece of soothing knitting, resulting in a pretty and versatile piece which I’m confident will slip right into your wardrobe.
Hole and Sons Pure Wool is the inspiration behind this design - a unique DK single source yarn coming from the Isle of Purbeck, England. As a Brit and farmer myself, I have quite a soft spot for their small batch yarn.
Hole and Sons will be releasing their second run of yarn2pm GMT Sunday May 10th, and I’m excited to tie in this Mystery KAL with the chance for you knitters to work with this amazing yarn too. You can find more details on the yarn release at holeandsons.com, and if you are on Instagram make sure you are following Ben @benjaminhole for yarn updates and stunning views of the farm and fields from where this yarn begins its journey.
Wow! The second batch sold out fast! Ben has promised us batch 3 is on it’s way later this summer, but in the mean time you can find a list of great substitute yarns here.
Sign up to get all the MKAL details, but, there will be….
Tales from the farm!!
With each pattern installment there will be a special note from the farmer himself! Ben will share tales about the farm’s history, his Poll Dorset sheep, his yarn and his daily life on the rolling hills of the Isle of Purbeck. I’m so excited that he will be joining us and connecting you guys with where your yarn comes from!
First clue sent May 20th.
