Cables always look so amazing. The all-over cable pattern and ladder stitch lends simplicity to the design and adds extra warmth. The Feast of Ladders is worked as two separate pieces (front and back) and the collar is added on to the ‘live’ stitches, which are not cast-off at the neck-edge.
Two options: either wear as a swooshy over-tunic or long top; join the sides (either with buttons or by sewing up). The main body of the design is worked on straight needles and the collar worked in the round.
Made in LIGHT MOONSHINE - alpaca, silk and cashmere.
SIZE: one size fits all - from shoulder seam to hem - 60cm, width – 60cm, length of collar - 25cm

Since materials (yarn and fibre chiefly) and their untold qualities; tactile, soft, bouncy, alive etc., are what we encounter, you could say that our sensory domain is and has been moulded by material interaction. So working with yarn and fibre is a thoroughly rich knowledge and experience based experimental domain that taps into other forms of intellect, memory, intuition etc.. Before we can create or design, we need to investigate, communicate, attempt, discover, play, question, challenge, and do. Mostly knit and unravel.
The more of our mental ability we bring into ‘the doing’ the deeper and more enriching the experience.
