SIDDAL YARN KITS USING BLUEM WORSTED, OUR 100% BRITISH BLUEFACED LEICESTER YARN, ARE NOW AVAILABLE TO ORDER. Please note, this kit does not include the Siddal pattern. The pattern is only available by purchasing my new book, Echoes, which you can do by clicking on the link above.

Siddal is a loosely fitting sweater with a gathered yoke neckline and fluted sleeves, knitted in worsted-weight yarn for a quick and gratifying knit. It is worked from the bottom up with two body lengths available. The reversed 3x1 rib pattern transitions from a lace border. The neckline is finished with a garter stitch edging in which a cord is threaded. The pattern was inspired by Lizzie Siddal (1829-1862), known as the muse and wife of Pre-Raphaelite painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti - but also a talented artist in her own right. Many paintings show Lizzie in medieval-style dresses, and Susan has referenced this style in a contemporary way.

Siddal is knitted using Susan Crawford Bluem Worsted, a worsted or aran weight yarn, worsted spun, with a honey-like softness and a delightful, lustrous finish.

Siddal is shown here in two colour ways, using shade Serge de Nimes a beautiful hand-dyed shade of denim blue or Morrel a hand-dyed shade of mushroom.
