Stylecraft Latest Launch Features Sophisticated Colours and Relaxed Shapes

Stylecraft has just unveiled its second launch for spring and summer, with two new yarns and patterns featuring elegant styles for a relaxed wardrobe.

Monet CollageMonet

Taking an impressionist palette as its inspiration, Monet is a lovely blend of harmonious colours that give a summery look to this painterly effect yarn.  The patterns have a distinctly 70s vibe with interesting sleeve shapes, textures and lace.  Four of the pattern leaflets show the design in Monet and a version in alternative yarn, Jeanie – a real favourite among Stylecraft fans.

Composition: 50% Acrylic, 50% Cotton

Aran weight – 100 g ball

RRP: £ 5.00

Moonbeam CollageMoonbeam

Moonbeam is a gorgeous yarn with a mix of matt and shine that has the most fantastic drape to it, in a palette of muted pastels.  Stylecraft has used this yarn in really interesting ways throughout the hippy chic collection of designs, to give each garment a truly unique look.  Every time the shine element of the yarn appears, the patterns use purl bars or double wrapping to give a devoré effect which adds to the fluid feel of each design. Super easy to do but creates a stunning effect.

Composition: 79% Cotton, 21% viscose

DK weight – 50g ball

RRP: £ 2.95

Linen Drape CollageLinen Drape

Linen Drape was launch in 2018 and was a huge hit with knitters and crocheters alike.  This season sees 4 new saturated, trend colours with a folkloric feel to them join the palette – Corn, Pewter, Egg Plant and Denim. The new shades are supported by a capsule collection made up exclusively of crochet garments, including a stunning granny square jumper and jacket combo.

Composition:  70% Viscose, 30% Linen

DK weight – 100g ball

RRP: £ 4.80

Belissima CollageBellissima

Stylecraft is always looking for new talent and have been following the work of Claudine Pooley aka @iron_lamb for a while, so they were delighted when she agreed to design two exclusive patterns, featuring their wonderful yarn, Bellissima.  The relaxed fit of the jumper and the colour combinations in the scarf are bang on trend this season.
