The Scrumptious Collection Volume 3: The Sweaters

We've been sharing designs from our latest collection, due for release this month and today it is the turn of the sweaters from the book. We are thrilled with the Collection and really hope that you will be too.

First, we have Larigan by Amanda Crawford which is knit up in Scrumptious Chunky, (Shown here in the 'Purple' colourway). Travelling stitches create a beautiful pattern, and a cosy cowl neck and folded cuffs give extra warmth. The sweater takes between 9- 14 skeins to knit, depending on the size you choose and of course, because it's chunky, is very fast to work up! Sizing goes from 81-86 cm/ 32-34 inches to 122-127 cm/ 48-50 inches at the bust. This sweater is worked flat, in pieces and then seamed.

Next is Hamble, designed by by Lien Ngo using Scrumptious DK/Worsted, (shown here in the 'Olive' colourway). This sweater features cropped sleeves, a split hem and simple lines to give a smooth silouhette. Available in bust measurements from 79cm/ 31 inches to 125 cm/ 49.25 inches, this can be worked up using between 5-9 skeins. This sweater is knitted in the round from the bottom up. Yoke shaping is incorporated into the pattern and instructions are included for bust and waist shaping in order to achieve the most flattering fit.

Our third cardigan is Mardle by Ruth Garcia-Alcantud shown here in Scrumptious Aran 'Oyster' colourway. This scoop-necked,  slimline sweater is knitted using a nifty sideways construction technique. Specific measurements across the back will help determine the best fit and sizes are available from 81cm/ 32 inches to 127 cm/ 50 inches at the bust.  This sweater can be worked up using between 6 and 11 skeins depending on your chosen size. This sweater features set in sleeves for a really finished look and we think it's ultra feminine. 


Want to know even more about any of these patterns? We will be hosting a blog tour in the very near future feature the designers themselves and some friends and contributors we can't wait to introduce you to. Stay tuned!
