Designer Feature: Second Grace by Bristol Ivy

Bristol Ivy’s latest pattern Second Grace is a departure from her typical designs that feature lovely geometric details and unique stitch combinations. Designed using The Fibre Co. Cumbria, Second Grace is a pullover with a simple shape featuring an intricate colorwork yoke.

The design’s name was inspired by Nick Drake’s Second Grace album, which I’m thoroughly enjoying while writing this blog post. 

If you attended Rhinebeck last month you may have spotted Bristol in her Second Grace sweater. Maybe, like Meghan, you were able to rub elbows and get yourself a photo with her too? I still wish I could have checked out the festival. There’s always next year!
