While looking through her collection of 1940’s memorabilia, Debbie came across a wonderful poster encouraging women to join the Land Army, to grow crops to help sustain the country during war time. The illustrated model, young, fresh faced, and idealistic, was the inspiration for this collection of designs in the Rialto range. The knits mix a waist defining retro style cabled cardigan and fair isle’s with more generous gilets and a hooded coat. Knit them with a swing band playing softly in the background on a Bakelite radio.
