The design is inspired by the Hindi word katran which is a word that describes small pieces of cloth by-products from weaving mills. There is a movement in India where these off cuts are collected by farmers in their off-seasons and spun into heavy yarn to make traditional daybeds.

The Secret Garden make me think of these gorgeous Indian yarns which are just a riot of colour with no real order to the changes. There’s a real handspun quality to the yarn which I love.

For the project you’ll need 3 skeins of Secret Garden (I’ve used 709 Lily Pond) and a 28cm diameter stool, which is available in most discount home stores.
