    Polkacats – Pattern & Kit

    Q: How many cats can you fit on a sweater?
    A: Quite a few...
     
    We love this catty design by Marna Gilligan of An Caitin Beag! Marna used RiverKnits Nene 4 Ply and Nene 4 Ply Minis (100% Bluefaced Leicester wool) for her version and now you can too. Choose the originals or pick your own cat colours! You can knit Polkacats up as a sweater or a cardigan - full instructions are included for both.

    Yarn

    Once you have determined your size, you can check the yarn requirements. MC is the main colour (Baa), CC refers to the contrast colours for the polka cats, HC is the hem colour (Pebble). The original Polka Cats uses 4 contrast colours for the cats: Jewel Orange, Jewel Gold, Jewel Yellow, and Jewel Lime. If your size requires more than 4 mini skeins for the cats, then double up on the original colours or add more colours from our range of 78 mini skeins! The table shows the number of skeins (full size or mini) required for each size.

  • 3 versions of the Stormy & Scottish rainbow blankets
    The Stormy & Scottish Rainbow blankets were designed by Fay Dashper-Hughes and we have several mix and match options available.
     
    The Stormy Rainbow Crochet Blanket was the original blanket that Fay designed after doing one of our rainbow mini skein dyeing workshops. We have put together a mini skein kit that closely mirrors the dyed skeins of Fay's original. It is made using the intarsia crochet method and just one simple stitch. Easy row repeats make it a great first intarsia project.
     
    The Scottish Rainbow Knit Blanket is a new edition for knitters that is inspired by the colours of Scotland. It is made using the intarsia knitting method and it's all done in garter stitch to make a squidgy, warm blanket. Easy row repeats make it a great first intarsia knitting project.
     
    We have also chosen some Chimera colours for a super luxe version! That brings the colourway options to 3 in total, and they all work with both the knit and the crochet pattern. The kit comes with the printed pattern and a digital download - you do need to select this if you want it, and an optional 3 skeins of the background colour in our signature Nene 4 Ply.

    Prism – Pattern & Kit

    From: GBP £91.00
    Prism is a colourwork yoke jumper with a geometric design, for fun colour-play with highly colourful marled or variegated yarns. It was remembering that wonderful childhood toy, the kaleidoscope, that set me off doodling prisms. The concentric bands of triangles remind me of the twisting motion that creates endless new views through the 'scope.
     
    The yoke includes two colourways of our magically-marled Chimera for an indulgent use of colour, while keeping the knitting deceptively simple. The main colour is Severn 4 Ply, a woollen-spun Jacob wool yarn that is as lightweight as it is cosy and warm.
     
    Sizes This adult sized jumper is designed to be worn with a relaxed fit. Choose a size with 5-10cm / 2-4" positive ease on the chest. Measurements provided are from the finished garment.

  • 7 mini skeins in greens, browns, and pinks Two pairs of stripy Mini Mania socks
    Mini Mania is a striped sock pattern by Fay Dashper-Hughes. It has been cleverly designed to incorporate the yarn tails as you go, so there are not lots of ends to weave in at the end. It is worked cuff down, with a heel flap and rounded toes. The pattern contains detailed photos and a link to a private YouTube tutorial.
     
    Sizes given in the pattern are for a 60/64/68/72 stitch sock. The 68 and 72-st socks require 2 mini skeins of colour A, so be sure to include these when selecting your colour choice. For the smaller sizes, adding an additional mini skein of colour A will enable you to get two pairs of socks from 7 mini skeins.

  • A mittened hand holding a skein of Chimera in the same colours as the mitten
    Singing Stones are one of nature’s curiosities. These musical rocks are formed from molten lava that is subject to stresses and strains as it cools. The internal tension increases the rocks’ ability to transmit vibrations - music! The dancing rhythm of the mosaic pattern teamed with the multi-coloured marled yarn makes me think of music, hence, Singing Stones.
     
    These fingerless mittens have been designed to work with our magically marled Chimera yarn and a complementing solid. The mosaic pattern is charted and very simple to follow. The colourwork is created by slipping stitches. What could be easier?!

  • Instant Sock Pot

    GBP £39.60
    Are you a devoted sock knitter who is short on time? Or perhaps you want to conquer your fear of the afterthought heel? The Instant Sock Pot is here to warm your feet, or those of your loved ones - all you need to do is add heels and toes!
     
    The 72-stitch sock tubes are made from some of our iconic hand-dyed colourways and have been hand-cranked by us on a vintage Foster Victoria circular sock machine in our studio. A contrast mini skein colour has already been picked for you to add the perfect complement to your chosen colourway. We’ve also included a full tutorial complete with photos showing each step on the way to a finished pair of socks.
  • Narrow Escape is a deceptively simple design that is easy to wear and fun to knit. The asymmetric wedges are perfect for playing with multiple colours or gradient sets and create a lot of visual interest in the finished item. They are created by working short rows and the clean, modern look is finished off with an i-cord bind off. Yarn needs will vary depending on how many colours you choose. A simple 2 colour version will take less than 100g of each colour, in 4 ply / fingering weight yarn.
  • Wavewalking Socks came about when I wanted to knit a simple cabled sock that would show up well in a hand dyed variegated yarn. Being a boat-dweller, the pattern reminded me that I am always walking on waves! Choose your own favourite hand dyed yarn and clothe your feet in cosy colours :-) The socks knit up quickly with the interest of the eyelet cable to keep you going. You can choose whether to have a plain cuff or make a feature of the eyelet ribbing. And the best thing is, the pattern is written toe up and top down, so you can make these no matter what your preferred method is!
  • Bobble Marley is a quick and fun hat, great for playing with multiple colours. It uses a set of 6 mini skeins, with two colours held together at all times to create a marbled effect. The leftovers are used to make a generously sized bobble. Sizes Child (Adult) fits approx. head size 19in / 48cm (22in / 56cm) Yarn 6 skeins of RiverKnits BFL 4 Ply Mini (20g / 80m per mini skein) or suitable fingering weight yarn
