Now we’re always thrilled when deliveries of woolly goodness arrive, but last week something extra special made it’s way to Loop. We’ve been working with the lovely folks at The Border Mill to bring you our very own range of yarn! Loop Alpaca Tweed is soft, textured and has the most gorgeous heathered colours – can you tell why we’re head over heels?

Introducing our latest free pattern, the Cecelia Cowl! This beautiful knit uses almost an entire ball of Freia Super Bulky Ombre so there are minimal leftovers, plus it’s extra cosy! Make sure to read to the end of the post to find out how you could win one! Created exclusively for Loop by Rachel Atkinson, designer, tech editor and long time friend of Loop who was inspired by Cecelia Campochiaro’s book ‘Sequence Knitting’ – hence the name! Many thanks to Rachel Atkinson for the pattern, Susan Cropper for styling and Kristin Perers for her stunning photography.

An early Christmas treat has arrived! Introducing our latest free pattern Alvaro, a textured colour block scarf that uses the cosy soft Illimani Cadena. It’s the pattern you’ve been waiting to solve those last minute gift knitting dilemmas!
