Wearable art: Willow & Lark’s new collection inspired by the masters of Impressionism. Featuring four sweater and one cardigan, is a beautiful combination of dreamy color palettes and gorgeous design, inspired by the 19th century Impressionist art movement.

Artists like Monet captured the world through the impression of a single splendid moment, playing with changing light and the way it might filter through the trees, or the splash of colors in a landscape or in the bloom of flowers. With this beautiful art movement in mind, Willow & Lark’s Impressionist collection features a wash of beautiful color and interesting texture to create 5 garments that are truly works of art. 

The Sunset Oversized Cardigan uses three strands of yarn to create colorwork reminiscent of its Impressionist inspiration. The effect is stunning and surprisingly easy to achieve, this cardigan is a fantastic beginner garment worked in garter stitch.

If you’re looking for a slouchy roll neck sweater to disappear into, the En Plein Air Roll Neck is perfect. The gentle color change splashed across the sweater brings to mind the layers of color in nature and how beautifully they melt together. 

For more of a challenge, the Soleil Levant V Neck sweater is a great project for any advanced knitter who loves to incorporate textures into their work. Held double throughout a dreamy ombre effect is created with the striking diamond motif, imagine the play of light thrown through a prism and you’ll have something like this gorgeous sweater.

The Sunrise Pullover has a gorgeous feminine fit and is created using a simple linen stitch, coupled with the subtle sunrise inspired color palette this is one sweater that will never go out of style and will stretch your skills. 

To complete the collection, the Abstract Embroidery Jumper is art come to life. Cute and cropped, it’s a stylish sweater that won’t go out of fashion with beautiful Impressionist-inspired embroidery details.
