New patterns, and a twist on an old one…

Our expert pattern-writer has been tremendously busy over the last while. Here is a preview of some of the lovely new garments we have for you to make…

Beginning with something classic, we have the Emily jumper in Morris Norway 8ply.

Patterns are available with both vee- and crew-neck options. This sample is made in colour number 2803, but with the whole Estate and Norway ranges at your finger tips there are plenty of colours to choose from.

Another simple and classic pattern is for the Alice vest in Morris Empire 4ply. This particular vest is made in the colour Sesame Twist, one of the several “twist” colours in the Empire range, which gives it a very subtle texture. There are many other colours available too, including some that are variegated if you’re after something a bit more adventurous.

Next, if you want a quick and simple cardigan, look no further than the Emma cardigan. Made from Morris Fuel 20ply, it knits up quickly making for a very gratifying project, particularly if you’re new to making full garments.

This chunky knit looks wonderful in off-white, but for those of you who love a bit of colour we have a vibrant red and electric blue, among other shades. Not to mention several variegated colours.

A favourite among the staff members, here is the Hannah jumper in Morris Woollahra. The colour shown here is Grass Stain. The tweed fleck in the yarn gives it some texture, while the sweet button detail makes it a little bit more interesting than a plain sweater.

The patterns for these, and other new garments, are available in store and over the phone, and will soon be available to order online.

For those of you familiar with our single-leaf patterns, you might recognise this little beauty. A recent experimentation with some of our new yarns, namely Merinogold 8ply and Kid Seta mohair 2ply from Grignasco, has resulted in this glorious take on our very popular Alexandria cowl pattern.

By substituting the Empire 2ply with Kid Seta mohair*, you get a gorgeously soft and lush texture; perfect for keeping you nice and cosy. Experimentation is the key to discovery, and in this case we’ve made a wonderful one.

(*Note: You will need two balls of Kid Seta in place of the one ball of Empire the pattern requires as they are shorter in length.)

Thank you for reading. We’d love for you to leave us a comment! Which of these patterns would you consider making? Would you make it for yourself, or do you have someone else in mind?

Best,
The Morris and Sons Team

  1. I really like the Hannah jumper – & the colour is gorgeous too 🙂 I’m only a beginner knitter though so maybe a little more practice & I could tackle this beautiful jumper!

  2. Loving the new blog! The Alexandria Cowl will definitely be added to my ‘to do’ list, maybe even the Hannah jumper if I’m brave enough!

  3. I would love to knit Emily jumper and Alexandria cowl to warm me up next winter. Is Emily jumper knitted top-down and seamless?
