Ode to Autumn by Jayalakshmi: A5 Printed Pattern booklet

The Ode to Autumn is a rectangular wrap, knitted in Oakworth 4ply colourway Faded Bloom, Carlisle Fingering colourway Rose Bed and Eldwick Lace colourway Rambling Rose. It is worked from one end to the other; and the lace patterns are both written and charted.

This pattern is the third of four designs making up the Four Seasons Collection, and it draws its name and inspiration from John Keats’s poem “To Autumn.” In this poem, the poet personifies autumn as a harvester and in three stanzas divides the season into three aspects drawing attention to the short-lived beauty of the season. 

The Collection
The Four Seasons Collection Subscription is an exciting collaboration with Jayalakshmi (aka Jaya - @jayalakshmimh on Instagram) which will see the release of four designs, one for each season. Four Seasons is a collection of four shawls/wraps inspired by Jaya’s love for simple and meaningful poetry, by some of her favourite poets. Each poem and the associated design celebrate the season while also conveying a deeper meaning and philosophy of life. All four designs use Eden Cottage Yarns in a variety of quantities, bases and weights to beautifully capture the spirit of both the poem and the season

Jaya is a knitwear designer, and mother of twin girls living with her husband in India. She believes in designing simple yet elegant knits that are as fun to knit as they are comfortable to wear. We have been working with Jaya for over 18 months now, and every one of her designs have beautifully showcased our yarns so we know that the four designs in this collection will be well worth the wait.
