TOFT are very proud to present a 15th Birthday collection, brought together by revisiting and perfecting our most iconic and favourite designs from the last decade and a half. These patterns helped shape TOFT into the company it is today, each one causing a twist and turn on our path to 2021. These patterns follow our journey from the very early ready-to-wear collections through to the first creation of Edward’s Menagerie and to a brand new pattern that celebrates this year and the future.

First designed in 2014, the Stala cowl celebrates the beautiful textures that crochet stitches can create, and is a must have crochet project from TOFT’s fashion-led range of crochet accessories.

“This cowl was one of the first items to be designed by another hook than mine, and took TOFT into a new and more collaborative direction working with a wider team of creative people. Although still offering my experience in advice and opinion, small collections of accessory patterns began to be developed and made by others while I was kept very busy with the Edward’s Menagerie patterns. This textured and versatile pattern was created by team member Liz back when she was interning here from the University of Huddersfield as part of her textiles degree. She returned to join the company in 2016 and continues to play a major part in TOFT today.”

A fantastic choice for a beginner looking to expand their crochet techniques, the Stala Cowl is made using TOFT's pure wool range of seriously luxurious yarn spun in Yorkshire from the finest fleeces. Our pure wool yarns are versatile and can be used for most knitting and crochet patterns creating wonderful garments for adults and children, and a full range of accessories.

THIS KIT CONTAINS: 200g of TOFT's luxury ARAN pure wool in the colour of your choice.
