Clara Jane


The 'Clara-Jane' pattern is brought to you in collaboration with Vanessa Harper from Hanging Rock Roost. A super fun knit which has been elevated with simple slip stitch colourwork, this cardigan will quickly become a wardrobe staple. Knitted in Yarnfloozy Machinist 4ply (70% Merino/ 20% Yak/ 10%Nylon) known for its great stitch definition it helps the colour work to pop.

Clara Jane

Clara-Jane is a retro-cool chick, stylish and modern, with a love of all things natural and pure. She keeps to herself mostly, she makes her own clothes, bakes her Grandmother’s old recipes for her family and even makes her own cleaning products to save money for the things that really matter in life. She does enjoy a good night out occasionally though, listening to her favourite girl-bands.

The Clara-Jane cardigan is worked from the top down, in a raglan style. She’s an unfussy, cropped and fitted design, embellished at the hem with a little bit of mosaic colourwork. The neck and button bands are picked up and worked onto the body.
