Field & Lea is inspired by nature and includes inspiration such as dandelions, bluebells and fields. Colour and texture are the core part of Field & Lea. It uses two strands of 4ply / fingering marled together throughout, which allows the colours to play a big part in the design. You could easily use stash yarn and your creativity to knit your own.

The pattern was designed, originally, for a mystery KAL with A Good Yarn, Cleethorpes, so it is separated into 4 distinct parts. There’s a lot of knit and purl texture involved, so it’s a simple enough knit but the changing patterns and use of colour means that you don’t get bored. There are a couple of interesting but relatively simple texture techniques in the pattern and there are several video tutorials included in the pattern to make the knitting process simple and stress-free.
