You must see Kim Hargreave's new beachy collection, Echoes! This collection of 21 designs uses some of my favorite Rowan yarns including Original Denim, Creative Linen, Cotton Lustre, Handknit Cotton, Summerlite 4ply, All Seasons Cotton, Panama, Mohair Haze and of course, Kidsilk Haze. The light and breezy cardigan above might be my favorite so far; it's called Spray and is worked in Cotton Lustre. But check out the rest of these beauties. Wow.

This eyelet skirt with fringe is a must-knit. So cool. This is Reed and it's made with Cotton Lustre.

 This is Aqua, an amazing openwork sweater. Also worked in Cotton Lustre.

And Wave, a longline cardigan using Kidsilk Haze.

Cape is a preppy, short-sleeved sweater made with cotton Summerlite 4ply.

Coral is cropped cardigan with broad shadow stripes. It's made with Panama (linen, cotton and viscose.)

Drift is made with gorgeous Mohair Haze.

Harbour is a long sleeved cardigan with a soft ruffled hemline, made with Panama.

 Lagoon is a cool garter stitch tank made with Cotton Lustre.

This classic sweater, Ocean, is worked in Creative Linen.

Reef is a long line hooded cardigan, worked in a textured stitch with a garter stitch edging in lovely All Seasons Cotton.

Splash, a simple raglan sweater has a gorgeous neckline and is made with Creative Linen. I would wear this a ton, I have a feeling!

Tide, a generous cabled and textured pullover is made with Handknit Cotton.

 And Ebb is a close fitting raglan made with Kidsilk Haze.

I'm guessing you're in the mood for spring and summer beachy knitting now, right? Echoes is available at Kim's website and at Rowan stockists everywhere. You can check out the details for each pattern right here.


  1. Oh my goodness! These pieces are just unbelievable! I love each and one of them - impossible to choose the favorite!

    1. Me too – I totally agree. I really have my eye on that skirt, though – I love knitted skirts!

  2. Oh man! So much good stuff in one book! I love the Lagoon tank, the Reef cardigan, and the Splash sweater!

    1. Me too!!!! I swear I want to make 9 things out of this book. It's so hard to know where to start. (So many of these would be perfect for your FL life!)
