Meet: #SustainablistDesignVote!

Do you like to take a glimpse behind the scenes and get involved? Then we created #SustainablistDesignVote with you in mind! Here at Sustainablist, we're gearing up to launch an exciting project, and it's all about sharing the process and teaming up with our community. In other words, you're warmly invited to join us as Verena designs a new piece in collaboration with Blacker Yarns! You’ll get to make ALL the choices, from what type of garment or accessory you’d like to knit a little later this year and the inspiration behind the design to choosing yarns and colourways, and there will be plenty of fun prizes, too.

Meet: Vanilla Heirloom!

Meet: Vanilla Heirloom!

Our latest design, Vanilla Heirloom, is now available, and I haven't been this excited for a new pattern release in quite some time. And you know why? With everything we do here at The Wool Club, we aim to contribute to a more sustainable, fair and eco-friendly way of living and making, and this new design feels like an important step in that. To us, an important aspect of sustainable making is providing knitters with patterns that you can use to make pieces that'll last you a long time and that will be loved and worn a lot.

It's also an excellent choice for beginner knitters as it comes with lots of extra information and instructions for 5 different gauges, making it suitable for a plethora of yarn weights. You can get a free, basic version here, and the full pattern version is available here.

Here's how I wear it:

Are you good at keeping secrets? I couldn't be more excited that something I've been keeping a secret will be revealed very soon – the Hometown Cardigan design I contributed to Taproot Mag's upcoming issue REST – and I wanted to share with you that they just brought back their Digging Depper series! It's a look behind the scenes of how some of the pieces from their magazine came to live, and I feel so honoured to get to share a bit more about my work in this first feature.
