BLOOM BY ROWAN
What is Bloom by Rowan?
Bloom is a beautiful new project by Rowan which is focussed around not just the new arrival but the mother too - from pregnancy to beyond.
It's a fabulous knitting collection which is designed around a gorgeous and modern aesthetic - for both mother and baby.
A collection of patterns for both adults and babies and yarns which come in an array of stunning, contemporary colours make this the perfect way to spend some time preparing for the new times ahead.
Who are these Bloom patterns for?
If you're about to be a new parent and feel the need to get knitting for your new arrival then these are for you!
If you're the parent and feel like you need to dedicate some time to create something special for you that you can use during and after your pregnancy then there are patterns for you too!
If you know a new parent-to-be / baby-to-be then anything from this collection would make an amazing and incredibly thoughtful gift.
How hard are they?
These patterns are created by and written by Rowan and their format is based on some existing knitting knowledge. Many of these patterns will involve circular needles or double pointed needles - some will not (it will be clear on the pattern page) - and there will be techniques beyond that which are normally found in a Knit Kit Co kit (again these will be outlined in each pattern page).
So, in a nutshell - these patterns aren't for first timers and some will be more of a challenge than others but there are some which are accessible for early stage knitters. If you're a newbie and up for a bit of a challenge then I'd always encourage you to try but if you think these might be a bit tricky for you then I have some lovely super simple baby knit kits here.
