ORCHID is a lovely easy to wear boxy style, knitted using Rowan Felted Tweed. The design uses lace and twisted stitch textures. I personally love this design and I wear it a lot. Georgia, my model also had this style knitted in ‘Gilt’ as part of her fee for modelling! The garment shown is knitted in Amethyst 192.

Please note that although Rowan Felted Tweed is described as a DK, it is actually a non-standard weight and is in-between a DK and a 4Ply. I actually use it as a 4Ply yarn and therefore can be substituted with any other 4Ply yarn.
