Louisa Harding Amitola

I have just finished knitting this sweater in Louisa Harding Amitola and I love it!!


Amitola is a luxurious blend of 80% wool and 20% silk. It is incredibly soft and the colours are amazing. Each colourway includes a subtle variation of shades and this is enhanced further in the Taliesin pattern by alternating stripes of two different colours: in this case 125 Sleepy Hollow and 127 Amelia.

The yarn is classed as double-knitting but there are 250m on each 50g ball so it goes a long way. I only needed 3 balls of each shade to knit the 3rd size (37″) and have a reasonable amount of each colour left (although I’ve used more Sleepy Hollow than Amelia and can’t work out how!!).

I think this is going to be my favourite sweater for Autumn.
