Lord’s Seat

Lord’s Seat is a slouchy beanie featuring an undulating cable rib. It is knitted from the bottom up with a brim of half twisted rib and very attractive crown shaping. The pattern requires only one hank of Cumbria, which gives the fabric lustre and softness whilst retaining excellent stitch definition.

Foundations AW19-20: Inspired by the comfort of craft, Foundations AW19-20 is designed to show you how we do “cosy” in the rural countryside. With lots of annual rainfall and low temperatures almost year-round, the Lake District requires a wardrobe full of woollens. In this collection, you will find vibrant colourwork, interesting yokes and simple but effective textures. We have worked with a small group of indie designers to create garments and accessories that can be thrown on and wrapped up in whenever you need the ease of a woolly hug.
