Susan's designs have long been associated with a vintage aesthetic but how to translate that into your everyday wardrobe can sometimes be difficult. In Evolution, Susan has taken inspiration from the vintage garments she studied and recreated in The Vintage Shetland Project and translated them into highly wearable, contemporary pieces; designed to be worn and fun to knit.
Each design is modelled by Susan, exploring her own evolution after a double mastectomy as a result of breast cancer and also turning 50. These powerful images are modelled by Susan without prosthesis to hopefully normalise an often hidden result of surgery.
Twelve contemporary, highly-wearable, Fair Isle or lace designs for women featuring design and pattern elements from The Vintage Shetland Project but with a modern fit and contemporary styling making them perfect for your every day wardrobe. One pattern will be released approximately every two weeks.
THE NEXT DESIGN IN THE COLLECTION TO BE RELEASED IS GALLICA, WHICH WILL BE PUBLISHED ON TUESDAY 7TH APRIL
In the first instance you will receive your patterns in PDF format then shortly after the last pattern is released you will also receive your beautiful printed book (dispatching end June 2020 *).
All patterns already released at the time of purchase will be immediately available in PDF format.
There are a range of designs in the collection including sweaters, cardigans, hats and mittens in a range of yarn weights including Fingering (4 Ply), DK and Worsted (Aran) weights.
All garment patterns have been written to fit from 28 inch (70cm) to 62 inch (155cm) chest.
