Hello there! I’m doing a little update to Tarn so it will be unavailable until it is completed. Nothing about the design itself is changing, I’m just adding some extra sizes! If you are currently knitting Tarn and need any support, please do send me a message, I’d love to help! Thank you for understanding - Claire x

This is the third design I created that was inspired by the rugged landscape of the North West of England. I love the contrast between the craggy mountains next to the smooth surface of the lakes, and that is why I called it Tarn. Meaning a small mountain lake, it perfectly captures the shift between the richly textured yoke to the smooth stockinette. I do hope you love it!

Happy Knitting! x
