It's All About Jolie

One yarn, 12 patterns, and a very exciting Stitch & Story team photoshoot!
The Jolie Yarn & Pattern Collection
Meet the new kid! Jolie is our first 100% acrylic yarn, and comes with a collection of 12 playful knitting and crochet patterns.
This chunky wonder is as soft and squishable as woolly yarns and, because it’s made of acrylic fibres, won’t felt in the wash! It’s an affordable yarn that really does the job in style. The gorgeous confetti of colour throughout the yarn adds an exciting pop that will make any project come to life.
This collection is made up of 8 knitting and 4 crochet patterns to create a variety of garments and accessories. Each one is named after some of our favourite childhood games, and are just as fun to make!
Why We Love It
To celebrate the arrival of this collection, the Stitch & Story team hit the catwalk and modelled their favourite patterns! Read on to meet us, and find out more about why we love the Jolie collection:
Bobby, E-Commerce Administrator
Marbles Garter Sweater
"It feels like a perma-hug! I was happier just being in it, it's bright, and well shaped, so I felt kind of like a cloud"
Dips Crochet Scarf
"I liked how it looked, with the pastel colours and the crochet pattern texture, the closer you look at it, the more interesting it is."
Carolina, Digital Marketing Executive
"I love how soft the yarn is, it's so soft! The accessories are super comfy and the colours of the garments are really nice. You can make so many cosy combinations "
Carolina is modelling the Hopscotch Crochet Scarf, and the Jacks Crochet Headband.
Cyn, Head of Collections
Double Dutch Cropped Tee
"I like the cropped tee because it’s a light bit of knitwear that’s easy to throw over something else, which is perfectly in fashion with the layering trend! It’s a small enough piece for those less open to bright colours, making it the best way to add that dash of colour into your wardrobe."
Gaëlle, Supply & Demand Planner
Hot Lava Infinity Scarf
"I loved the chunkiness of the yarn, which made it super cosy to wear, especially the scarf - you can properly wrap yourself up in it! It’s super soft, and at first guess you cannot imagine that it's not wool! It’s also very warm, just like wool. The summer fruit colour is a treat for the eyes, a real pop to light any winter garment! I love the fact that it's a unisex knit, and that my boyfriend could just as well wear it. One garment for 2, it's genius haha!"
Fadzi, Knitwear Assistant Designer
Hide n Seek Trapper Hat
"I like that there’s a variety of colours and the feel of it. All the garments have a luxurious, soft, and warm feeling. Ideal for beginners who want to dip into knitting."
Beth, Digital Designer
Sticky Toffee Scarf
"Can I please make everything out of this Pastel Rainbow yarn from now on? It’s SO soft and cloud-like, and super on-trend!"
Gemma, Graphic Designer
Leapfrog Raglan Cardigan
"I love how the Jolie yarn has irregular speckles of colour, so each garment is full of personality and no two would look alike. I modelled the Leapfrog Raglan Cardigan at the shoot. I loved how cosy and oversized it was. The yarn was soft, and thick, meaning it would also make a great alternative to a lightweight jacket."
Chrissy, Brand & Licensing Commercial Director
Tag Crew Sweater
"I love the way the colour speckles in the yarn fell into the garment when knitted, to create beautiful and unique patterns. Each garment or accessory you create will be completely personalised to you, and each time it will come out distinctively different!"
Wen, Customer Care
Conkers Pom Pom Hat
"I think it's lovely. The colours are very cute (I loved the pink one specifically) and the yarn is very soft and warm. The pom pom hat is super adorable, I might make another!"
Irene, Image Coordinator
Tic Tac Toe Crochet Headband
“The perfect headband: Jolie is the softest yarn, which makes it nice and cosy for your ears, and it’s such a snug fit. Also, the scrunch detail makes it fun to style!”
