Poppies & Irises by Sarah Hazell

Poppies & Irises front cover

This elegant snood pattern designed exclusively for erika knight by British designer Sarah Hazell is knitted using 4 hanks of luxuriously soft british blue 100.

Poppies & Irises are two long snoods, each knitted using the same two-colour striped slip stitch pattern but with a choice of a contrasting third colour ribbed or cable-like stitch pattern.

The subtleties of the colours used in this painting by Roger Fry have inspired the naming of these two complimentary snoods.
