Watch the flower grow!

As you knit these cheerful mittens from the cuffs up, the stem, leaves, and bloom materialize upon the needles like a surprise winter blossom emerging from the frosted soil.

The hedgerows of Ireland can be found across the length and breadth of the island and are the heartbeat of the Irish countryside. They are filled with beauty and color. They support a myriad of life - both flora and fauna. In this collection we have focused on the purple of the heather, the burnt orange of the ferns, the green of the shoots, grass and leaves and the blue of the rivers and streams meandering through.

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'.
