The Woolly Thistle is proud to bring you Marie Wallin's brand new book, Cumbria.This new collection features 11 Fairisle and stitch textured designs by Marie using her BRITISH BREEDS yarn. The patterned designs in Cumbria are largely inspired by Eastern European folk art and Far Eastern textile and carpet designs mixed with more traditional motifs.
Cumbria is a very special collection because this is Marie's first collection to include menswear! This collection includes 3 men's sweater designs, 2 cardigans and one all over colorwork sweater.
New to the Cumbria collection is an extended size range. The women's designs are now able to be knitted in 7 sizes - S through to 3XL and the mens designs in 8 sizes - XS through 3XL. The women's size range is S, M, L, XL, 2XL, and 3XL to fit bust 32-34 in, 36-38 in, 40-42 in, 44-46 in, 48-50 in, 52-54 in, 56-58 in.
The men's size range is XS through 3XL to fit 38-40 in, 40-42 in, 42-44 in, 44-46 in, 46-48 in, 48-50 in, 50 - 52 in, 52 - 54 in.
We've put together kits for this beautiful new collection.
Included in the price of the printed book is a downloadable PDF version, so that you can enlarge the charts without having to spoil the printed book. We will email the code upon request after your order is processed!
In an effort to be more environmentally friendly, this book is printed free of coating or treatment so the pages have a matte finish.
