Flame Bowerbird

Solène Le Roux is a talented French knitwear designer, who lives in Paris. My collaboration with Solène has yielded this beautiful cardigan inspired by the Flame Bowerbird.

You can find Solène Le Roux by visiting her website, Solène Knits. The Flame Bowerbird knitting pattern can be found on Ravelry.


The yarn used for this design is my Bluefaced Leicester Sock in the colourways: Silver Birch, Will, King's Ransom and Lyncolne Grene.


This 2 in 1 pullover or cardigan is inspired by the amazing Flame Bowerbirds. These colorful birds create beautiful nests and intricate love parades to attract their partners.

Flame Bowerbird is worked from the top down, in the round. It features a stranded pattern worked in up to three colors in the same round all around the yoke and at the bottom of the body and sleeves. The sweater is then cut in the middle using a steek for the cardigan version, but you can also work it as a pullover, both versions are included in the pattern.
