Blanket "Keel"
Ink + Birch


"Keel" is an improvised composition, borrowing its shapes opportunistically from our "Dovetail" pattern. It was composed like a written or typed note—with 'characters' laid down in sequence, from left-right, in rows. Special attention was paid to the interactions between the characters and the negative spaces they form, invoking the character of letterpress typesetting.

Knitted in a reverse jacquard, with an especially striking inverse colour-way on the reverse.

Dimensions: 105cm x 178cm / 41″ x 70″.

Knitted + hand-finished in Scotland from 100% superfine Lambswool
