Pattern Description:

In 2012 we went on holiday to Italy and stayed in a village called Lecchi.
While sitting under olive and pine trees in the Tuscan sun I played with colour and triangles.
It didn't take long for me to realise that the very simple triangle I was mindlessly playing with had huge potential, the colours glowed in the dappled sunlight and I loved the way they fitted together. I spent the rest of the holiday making triangles out of scraps, it took us 3 days to drive home and when I wasn't driving I was sitting crocheting with a lap full of orange and pink triangles. Lecchi was first published in the very first edition of Simply Crochet, I was really proud to see it on the very first cover.
Lecchi is one of the patterns featured in my upcoming "Madder Triangles" book, which will be published early September 2013
The yarn for Lecchi is available as a "Dyed to order" Kit, which you can find on our website HERE

About the designer

I make pretty things exclusively using The Natural Dye Studio's luxury yarns.
The subtle plant dyed colours lend themselves to being mixed together in one big project.
I am fascinated by the gaps ...
