Stranded Colorwork

When we think of dusk in the north west of Ireland (where designer Ailbíona lives), we picture the fuchsia hedges that grow along the side of the road. As the light slowly drains from the sky, their dangling forms glow like jewels against the backdrop of evening shadows.

Combining tonal and lightly variegated yarns offers limitless possibilities for magical colorwork effects.

About the Designer

Ailbíona McLochlainn

Co. Donegal, Ireland

Ailbíona is an exceptionally talented knitwear designer based in County Donegal. She learnt to knit at a young age - possibly as young as four years old - she is not entirely sure but remembers learning to read at roughly the same time! Her mother and paternal grandmother were both enthusiastic knitters and it is from them that she learnt a blend of Russian and German methods that she feels is best described as 'hybrid-continental'.
