Spud & Chloë for Vogue Knitting | Rosie

After putting together the Dogwood Set for Spud & Chloë, Katie asked me if I could design a little something for a collaboration with Vogue Knitting. I was given the Fine to work with and I suppose it was the silk content or the summer weather that inspired me to design something sweet and feminine. 

Rosie -

I often wear a vintage bandana tied in the front when I'm at home or in the garden, it makes me feel like Rosie the Riveter. Originally I had picked up a skein of Red Hot to swatch with, trying to recreate the look with an open stitch pattern and fun little ties to imitate the ends of the knotted bandana. My second sample was knit in the vibrant Goldfish colourway, I think it brings a modern fresh feel to the classic style I was inspired by.

Rosie is a perfect summer knitting project, it's very portable and super fast. Find this pattern and two other freebies from Spud & Chloë over on Vogue Knitting's website. For more on this fun collaboration hop on over to Spud & Chloë's blog!
