Toft Turns To Earthy Shades For Autumn 2019 Knit Collection

Toft, based in Warwickshire, has announced its Autumn knit and crochet collection to correspond with the latest publication of its Quarterly magazine.

These days the company is probably best known for its crocheted animals range but its own brand 100% wool is brilliant for garments and accessories too. The wool comes in a multitude of natural colours, such as greys, beiges and browns, plus there are a few bright colours in 25g balls, which although they are intended to be used for the crocheted animals are also great for stranded colourwork and Fair Isle.

For its Autumn/Winter knitwear patterns Toft has chosen to go for a very autumnal beige and brown colour palette - though of course if brown isn't your thing you can knit them in silver, cream or black instead.

Here are the new designs. Buy Toft Quarterly Autumn 19 at £8 plus P&P for the patterns only or alternatively each is available as a yarn and pattern kit:

This is my favourite from the collection because I'm very partial to a decorative yoke. Toft has used the shades stone, cream and cocoa in this design.

More stranded colourwork with the shades mushroom, cocoa and stone to keep your head warm this Autumn.

Geometric colourwork using the colours cream and cocoa. Make your own pom pom or buy a ready made one from Toft for an extra £10.

Granary Shawl

Knitted in the shade stone, this shawl can be worn in the traditional fashion with the point at the back or instead with the point at the front to keep your neck warm!

Oast Scarf

This is a great project for beginner knitters. The scarf uses the shades mushroom, cocoa and cream.

There are lots of pattens and wool being launched for Autumn from many knitting companies - keep an eye out on A Woolly Yarn for the latest news.
