This cozy collection by Andrea Rangel just makes me want to snuggle up and watch the seasons change outside my window. If you start knitting now, you might be ready just in time for the first snowfall!
When Malabrigo invited me to participate in this year’s Freelance Pattern Project as their October contributor, I was excited at the chance to stretch my imagination a bit. The Harrow Collection was designed with Victorian- era style in mind, so it’s got a touch of the costume feeling about it. It’s what I might knit and wear in a drafty old house while reading Whuthering Heights in front of a sputtering fire.
Whittingham is a luscious square wrap with a delicate lace edging that can be worn as a shawl or used as a lap blanket or throw. The Zarzamora slippers look intricate, but as they’re worked in a washable worsted weight wool, they knit up quickly and provide a cozy, cushioned step. I named Issa’s Bloomers after my sister who loves frilly things like silk ribbons, lace, and old-fashioned underwear. Wear them under a skirt for warmth or keep them for fancy lounging.
I hope you have as much fun knitting this collection as I had designing it.
(I can’t tell you how excited I am by the prospect of knitted bloomers!)
What on earth is “MFPP”?
