The SAGE THROW was the design that started off the idea for the very popular FAIRISLE CLUB first launched in 2014. Marie was commissioned to design and knit a throw based on the lovely SAGE TUNIC from Marie’s first book WINDSWEPT by the Campaign for Wool as a part of Wool Week 2014. The resulting throw was exhibited at Campaign for Wool exhibition at Southwark Cathedral, London in Oct 2014.
The throw uses 30 balls of Rowan Felted Tweed, the colours are listed below. Two of the original colours have sadly been discontinued so Marie has list an alternative to use:
Clay 177 x 5 balls Phantom 153 x 4 balls Hedgerow 187 x 2 balls - use Lotus Leaf 205 as substitute Gilt 160 x 3 balls - use Cumin 193 as a substitute Maritime 167 x 2 balls Ginger 154 x 1 ball Cinnamon 175 x 2 balls Bilberry 151 x 2 balls Peony 183 x 2 balls Avocado 161 x 1 ball Watery 152 x 2 balls Tawny 186 x 2 balls Camel 157 x 2 balls
The throw is knitted flat and the use of 2 x long circular needles is suggested.
