Some places call to you and you have to return again and again and some are so special that they beg you to stay and never leave. Fell Garth II is a collection of 19 pieces shot at our homestead, Fell Garth, in the stunning Lake District of Northern England. We invite you to join us in the Cumbrian Fells for some knitting pleasure from a host of talented designers ready to inspire with designs in 5 of our yarns.


The meditative power of garter stitch is applied here to give a classic, rustic feel while a modern update is offered with columns of textured stitches flowing from the top edge. A two skein project that offers interesting construction, creating a pleasing asymmetric shape that is worked from tip to tip. Long enough to knot around your neck on cold days but pretty enough to let drape and make a statement when safe from cold wind and rain. Work in a favourite TFC neutral for a versatile accessory or reach for a brighter, bolder hue for something a little more striking.
