Rowan Loves Again

4:21 PM

Volume 3 of Rowan Loves is almost out, this time with designs from Martin Storey.  All the designs can be knit with either Pure Wool Worsted or Creative Focus Worsted and most designs can be knit as either a cardigan or a pullover.  The new Rowan Loves series has stolen my heart.  I've been knitting a few garments from each one, and will again with this book.  First up for me will be the striped Bellerose and then must make the scarf and hat.  Gorge.  My lys is having a 20% off sale this Friday and Saturday.  Good timing!  Rowan Loves has not hit the shops yet, but expect to see it in the next few weeks. Ravelry has the complete yarn requirements if you'd like to get a headstart and order the yarn before hand. 



Yikes, over the moon in love with stripes, and love gray and white together with bright pops of color.  Bellerose above can be made in cardigan or pullover.  Oh dear, which one to make first?  

Skyland below uses only 3 skeins of either PWW or Creative Focus.  Love the pompoms and always love the look of garter stitch.

The Union Slouch takes only one skein.  Best hat.








 Bergen Raglan above and Rockette below, for stylish weekend wear.




Astoria above and Driscoll below can be knit long or cropped.





Who loves grandpa cardigans?  Me! Corona can be knit as a cardi above, or pullover, below.



I think I saved the best for last!  Boxy Haven can be either a pullover above or a cardigan below, but what it really wants to be is a poncho!  I especially love the flared back on the cardigan.

  1. Wow - there are not enough hours in the day to make all of sweaters I like, then there are the scarves too. I think Astoria would be my first to knit. Thanks for sharing.

    1. I know, not enough time to knit them, and then not enough days in the week to wear them all! Still, I knit on!

  2. This is my first look at the patterns from the latest Rowan Loves book. A great collection. As Daffy Suburbia says above there are not enough hours in the day for these sweaters let alone all the other designs which Rowan have launched for this winter. I am going to have to come up with a seriously edited priority list.

    1. Oh you and me both. My Rav queue is up to 150ish, so I have to go through and do some serious weeding.

    1. Oops, I dashed this post off so quickly I didn't think to say this is a pre-view. I've amended my post to say the book will start arriving in the shops in the next few weeks. In the meantime, Rav has the complete yarn requirements: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/sources/rowan-loves-creative-focus-worsted--pure-wool-worsted

  4. Thanks for sharing, Kristen. Always inspiring.

    I hope your summer is going well. Mine is going fast and I'm back to work in 2 weeks - ambivalence reigns supreme in my heart.

  5. Does anyone have this book and wants to sell it? Only want the pattern for Boxy Haven so would like to get hold of a second hand copy if possible.
