We’ve been so busy lately, introducing you to new Loop patterns and kits! We prepared a number of new ones for Edinburgh, and you love them! Today we have another special one for you ~ Tuli ~ an ombre cowl pattern by Fiona Alice.
Fiona Alice’s latest design for Loop, Tuli, is inspired by a bonfire celebration of the Finnish summer solstice.
Translated from the Finnish language, the name means fire – paying homage to the classic Fireflowers pattern which has been modified here.
Multiple combinations of garter and slipped stitches are used throughout this design. The construction allows Tuli to be completely reversible: with a simple flip of the cowl, there is a brand new texture to show off!
Each kit comes with all the yarn you need to make the Tuli cowl including a full set of Snail Yarn Gradient mini skeins and a full skein of The Uncommon Thread BFL Singles. There’s also a lovely Loop cotton shopper bag to keep as a project bag and a printed version of the pattern.
The kits come in three beautiful colourways: Into Dust, Peony and Golden Praline. Each makes use of one of the beautiful gradients of Snail Yarn. The mini skeins in a set, come from the same dye bath. They have varying amounts of dye take-up, providing the subtle shades.
The cowl is light, yet cosy; perfect for spring breezes.
Fiona worked at Loop when she spent 2 years abroad from her native Canada. She has designed a couple of free patterns here on the blog, including our popular, baby pattern Mabel.
You can expect to see more of her stunning design collaborations with us soon.
