So you know I take a LOT of yarn porn? And it's not necessarily obvious what it's for? Well, I can finally show you!
This is the first piece of clothing I've ever designed, and it was inspired by the colours of the autumn leaves in the Sussex countryside. It's a really REALLY simple design, you start at the neck, and work your way down, this means you can keep trying it on until it fits you perfectly across the bust, and then it's a case of just joining up the body. If you fancy giving it a whirl yourself, you can get the pattern here, I promise, it's a perfect place to start if you've never made clothes before.
I'd also fully advocate playing with your own favourite colour palettes, and experimenting with your own stripes. I'd love to see them! If you want to share just tag me up on instagram (@steelandstitch) xxx
