I am very pleased to announce the arrival of my latest pattern Framlingham 

Framlingham is easy to knit and easy to wear. 

Knit in superwash merino for a little bit of everyday luxury with heat regulating properties that take it from the warmest summer day through to a layering piece for winter.

Worked in one piece on a circular needle in the round, Framlingham is the ideal introduction to top-down, seamless knitting. No DPNs required! The pretty cabling detail that runs down the raglan and side ‘seams’ doesn’t even need a cable needle as it is worked using a simple slip stitch pattern. The garter stitch borders are knitted as you go too.

The pattern is written to make it a quick and enjoyable knit, markers are used to minimise counting and errors. There is just enough detail to keep the knit interesting. It grows quickly in a DK weight and 4mm needles.

The name is inspired by the twisted chimney at Framlingham castle which reminded me of the twisting cables in this top. And the colour of the merino is reminiscent of the heather on the nearby heaths.
Dress it down with denim or dress it up with pretty summer skirt. Layer it with a cardigan over or a long sleeved top underneath, this is a versatile knit.
Because Wendy Merino is great value at just £3.79 a ball most sizes can be made for £26 including the pattern.
Full pattern details can be found on the Ravelry pattern page or the Craftsy pattern page.
