Gyda Knitted by Dorothy DesRoches

IMG_0629I am so delighted to show you my design Gyda knitted by Dorothy DesRoches who live near Toronto, Ontario in Canada. Dorothy did not knit this for herself but for her granddaughter Hilary Scoffield, who lives in France and models it in these marvelous photos. The jacket is knitted in Sublime Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK (75% merino, 20% silk, 5% cashmere, 50 g, 116 m/126 yds)  in Dark Turquoise – a total of 12 skeins used – in a size Medium with a finished bust size of 98 cm/38.5″. Dorothy would have preferred to knit it in a tougher yarn like the Madeline Tosh Yarns which she has used for other projects.

IMG_0625Dorothy has knitted several of my patterns, and I am very proud that she has knitted not one but three versions of the Tyrol Jacket – for herself, her daughter Elizabeth and for a close friend. Thank you so much, Dorothy!

Gyda was first published in Norwegian, with the sample knitted in Hifa Ask, in the magazine Familien Trend in February 2015, then in English on Ravelry where it is available digitally. Yesterday, I had a new pattern published in Sweet Georgia vol 1 Fall 2015 collection, see and Aine. Blog post is coming.

  1. Thank you for posting these photos Linda! I am the proud daughter of Dorothy AND mother of the model, Hilary!!
    My Mom recently knit your Carla coat for me – I can not wait until it is cold enough here in France so I can wear it. It is so gloriously heavy, my sister-in-law wore it on the plane & carried it to me…. so already, it has an international history.
    Designed by you, knit in Canada & worn in France.
    Keep designing beautiful knits, our wardrobes need them! Elizabeth

    • I was very happy to, Elizabeth! It is nice to meet you, at least digitally, after hearing about you from Dorothy! That is fantastic! Thank you so much for telling me and making me so proud!
      I will certainly try my best! Linda
