I am probably biased, but I think Josephine is the perfect combination of beauty and brains. Inspired by and named after my Grandmother, I knit this cardigan with all the love a girl can have for her favourite Grandma. Josephine is a timeless style, with an elegant waterfall front, and an unusual construction.

Josephine is part of the Recollection; a collection of accessories and garments designed specifically to highlight oddments of special skeins, material memories of projects, friendships, holidays and occasions.
These materials, with which we spend so much time when we knit, become impregnated with the memory of that project: the places we knit it, the person the finished object went to, the way we felt when we made it. Those things, feelings and memories are precious. This collection is designed to honour those memories, bringing them together in a conscious way to make a new knit incorporating those precious remnants.

I chat about Josephine in Episode 21 of the EastLondonKnit podcast:)
