Be inspired by 16th century style with the new Willow & Lark Chintz collectionPublished on April 8, 2021 2 min read
Puffed sleeves, ruffles and elegant detailing; the latest Willow & Lark collection, Chintz, takes its inspiration from 16th Century fashion. Discover four new knitting patterns, each a sophisticated and timeless addition to your wardrobe.
The Chintz collection is made up of beautiful, neatly-fitted jumpers; perfect in contrast with the voluminous skirts popular in the 16th century. With delicate detailing and a feminine finish, these jumpers are sure to make a timeless addition to your wardrobe.
The garments use Willow & Lark Poetry and Willow & Lark Ramble. Poetry is a super soft DK with merino wool and camel, deliciously warm for blustery winds. Ramble is a splendid wool, which comes in a rainbow of weather-beaten colors.
If you're wondering how you can get the 16th-century look with the new patterns, we've got your back! We've paired the four stunning new patterns with more modern pieces for a vintage wardrobe revamp you'll love.
Florence Frill Short Sleeve Sweater
This is the perfect sleeve length to see you through changing seasons. Knit with a pretty border pattern for the hem and sleeve bands, and seed stitch panels for the body, it's a gorgeous garment to practice stitch detailing, and a sweater you'll treasure.
Megan Boat Neck Sweater
Willow & Lark Poetry is a warming blend of merino wool and camel, and creates a beautiful drape in this chevron stitch garment. We just love this classic boat neck shape too!
Henrietta Frill Sweater
Sweet shoulder frills and lace hem detail make this such a cute and sassy knit! Because it's knitted in pieces and seamed, it makes a great first sweater too.
Rosie Fitted Roll Neck
Ramble and Poetry yarns combine, in this sweet roll neck jumper. A simple combination of knits and purls creates the lower half pattern that ends up looking so complicated, but it's easy to knit! Which colors will you choose?
