I am just loving today’s mushroom-inspired collection by Meghan Jackson! Let’s dive on in, shall we?
Field Journal is a knitwear collection that includes a cardigan, two shawls, a cowl, and wristlets inspired by mushrooms, both in nature and folklore. Modern details mean the projects are simple enough to bring on a hike in your backpack if you have a few minutes to knit, yet sophisticated enough to wear anywhere. Lightweight Malabrigo yarns in vibrant earthy colours are featured prominently in garter, broken rib, eyelets, and other uncomplicated stitches. I hope you enjoy knitting these five nature sketches:
A comfortable shawl-front cardigan that’s perfect for nature walks. Knit in one piece with slim ¾ sleeves and casual lace details. Knit in Malabrigo Arroyo in Sand Bank.
The clean organic lines of mushroom gills create a subtle modern shawl. Knit in Malabrigo Sock in Natural.
Luxury yarn and simple stitches become pretty retro wristlets with a little bit of cross stitch. Knit in Malabrigo Silkpaca in Ravelry Red with embellishments in Malabrigo Lace.
A mushroom cap knit with the simplest of stitches and shaping makes a striking wear anywhere cowl. Knit in Malabrigo Arroyo in Volcan.
Bracket form mushrooms are reflected in a swirly bias-knit garter stitch shawl. Knit in Malabrigo Sock in Ochre.
Gorgeous collection- just goes to show that wonderful knitting inspiration can be found in the unlikeliest of places!
