Kate Davies designs for the Birlinn Yarn Company

Meg Rodger

We have just launched the beautiful Udal pullover designed by Kate Davies for The Birlinn Yarn Company.

Just in case you missed Kate’s blog here is the link: Udal - in it she reveals the creative inspiration behind her design, shares Tom’s beautiful photos of the Udal peninsula and explains how we came to a collaborative creative exchange.

The Udal pattern can be found on our knitting pattern page as a pattern kit including printed pattern and yarn or as a digital PDF download which is also available from the Ravelry.

“Udal is a design about a distinctive landscape, its’ unique history, and our personal creative connections to each other. Meg and I both hope that you enjoy it!” Kate Davies.
