Wild coasts, crashing waves and miles of deserted black sand. Kick off your shoes, we’re in an untamed land that’ll feed your soul and make you feel alive.

Iron Sands will protect you from the wind whipping up the sand and tossling your hair. Pull it close around your shoulders, breathe deeply and drink in the magnificence of the raw beauty all around. You’ve arrived in a magical place and it’ll change you.

With its soothing garter stripes and unexpected angles, Iron Sands gently guides you to a deceptively simple slipped stitch edge and playful pop of colour before ending your journey with a rippling border.

Quick and simple to knit, Iron Sands is perfect for experienced knitters and adventurous beginners.
