With a swoop of lace and the prettiest stitch details, Piccadilly is a romantic crescent shaped shawl designed by Justyna Lorkowska for Loop. The luxuriously soft Eden Cottage Yarns Hayton, is striped together, dotted with eyelets and finished with a delicate picot edge. We caught up with Justyna to find out more – make sure you read to the end of the post to find out how you could be one of three readers who can win a PDF copy of the pattern!

Soft and floaty, Quince & Co.’s new yarn Piper might make you fall in love with mohair in a whole new way. Blended with a 50% mix of merino this yarn has a smoother texture than brushed mohair with more stitch definition, but still a gorgeous halo. With a range of pastel shades this almost lace weight is perfect for warm and light hats, jumpers and of course shawls.
