This wrap was created with accessibility in mind – I wanted it to be simple to knit, and incredibly wearable. It’s made with Quince & Co. Kestrel, a 100% organic linen that’s easy to knit with, comfortable to wear, and super easy to wash (throw it in the machine in a delicate bag). The linen is heavy enough to keep you warm on spring and summer nights, but will never leave you sweating.
The simple welted texture is random, completely reversible, and creates a classic, timeless look. The pattern is knitted on the bias, increasing in width as you go, so you can make it any size you like and you never have to worry about running out of yarn. We’ve written the pattern with a line-by-line chart, to help you keep track of your rows (a beneficial thing for everyone, but especially helpful for people with learning disabilities). And the final bonus – it’s a FAST knit on 6mm/US10 to 7mm/US10.75 needles (think quick mother’s day gift)!
A client showed me this gorgeous, diaphinous top and I thought how great would it look knitted up with Handmaiden Flyss or Quince & Co Sparrow?! Both are sublime summer yarns; Flyss is a soft, summery blend of % silk and 35% linen, and comes with lots of yardage, and Sparrow is 100% organic linen. And since it knits up on 6mm/US10 needles it will go FAST!
This adorable little dress is the perfect gift for any little girl. It comes in sizes from 6mohts to 12 years, and is made with Quince & Co Kestrel (ON SALE NOW), which is nice and cool for warmer weather and is of course machine washable.
To fit: 6(12, 18) months and 2(4, 6, 8, 10, 12) years
Cullum is a tee is light, breezy top knitted in Quince & Co Sparrow. The simple lacy details at neck and hem give it a bit of elegance and interest, and the easy fit works with everything in your wardrobe. The classic black colour the designer chose is nice, but I think everyone looks prettier and feels happier in COLOUR, whether it’s muted or brighter.

I love this sweater; it’s simple, casual, and pretty. Plus the construction is roomy with lots of positive ease, so it’ll look great on a variety of body shapes. Gilead is made with cool & comfortable Quince & Co Sparrow. I like it in black, but I think it could be even lovelier in a less severe colour, like Truffle or Sea Salt, or a brighter colour like Citron.
finished bust: 37½ (41, 44½, 48, 50, 53½, 57, 61¼)” or 95.5 (104, 113, 122, 127, 136, 145, 155.5) cm

If you’re looking for a little bit more interest in your summer knitting, Bolan might be for you. Made with soft, cool, washable Quince & Co Sparrow it’ll definitely become a wardrobe favourite. Part of the interest is created by the new marled colourways (see below), which create a depth of colour and a little bit of texture.
Finished Bust: 43 (48½, 54, 59½, 65, 70½)” or 109 (123, 137, 151, 165, 179) cm

Simple, elegant and pretty are all things I appreciate in a garment and a project, and I think Miranda ticks all the boxes. I like the oblong shaping (which always fits so well), the simple lace, and the use of basic garter stitch to create texture and visual interest. I like that it’s simple enough to look like it *could* have come from a store, but it’s sophisticated enough that you’d never find anything like it for sale commercially. I also like that it’s great for transitional seasons since it’s made with Quince & Co Sparrow linen. Plus, it only takes 4 skeins, so it isn’t going to become your life’s work (which is ok by me in the summer).
