Like spring flowers these beautiful Sophie Digard necklaces are blooming all round the shop! Plus in this post we have some colour inspiration to get you ready for our Piccadilly Shawl Knit Along this summer!
Hand crocheted and stitched, these Sophie Digard necklaces are the most dainty and beautiful wearable works of art. The colours and tonal shades of every piece are created by using multiple fine linen threads as one. This means each necklace is totally unique and unrepeatable.
Like little buds and tendrils of a plant, the soft colours make each necklace an elegant addition to an outfit.
If you’re after more of a statement piece, necklaces like Fleur 4 Petal and Jonquilles include chunky velvet petals encased in crochet bases which lends a comforting weight to the necklaces, similar to beads.
And while we’re on the topic of beautiful handmade delights to drape around your neck, we are starting to get ready for the Piccadilly Shawl Knit Along! We are planning to kick off the KAL at the end of May for a whole summer of knitting.
If you’re joining in, why not use our KAL logo above for your Ravelry project page picture? More information about dates and how to take part will be coming soon, so all you need to get ready for now is the pattern and some delightful yarn courtesy of Eden Cottage Yarns Hayton.
There’s the classic Marigold and Red Kite used in our pattern sample.
In fact the warm hue of Marigold lends itself to several other combinations.
Or why not blend a hot pink with a cooler colour?
Or go for a softer look with classic neutrals…
Whichever colours you chose, we hope that you join in and knit along with us!
And one final thing is to announce the winner of last weeks giveaway. We gave you lovely readers the chance to win a ball of the fabulous ITO Sensai Silk Mohair.
