Filament, Summer 2017
If you’re looking for feminine, elegant knitting projects, look no further. Filament No. 3 Summer 2017 is third in a series of collectable pattern booklets put together by designers Kathleen Dames and Anne Podlesak. These delicate pieces are designed with a nod to luxury and timeless fashion. This issue features 8 projects, ranging from socks and shawls to a dainty summer tank.
The Breakers (above) is the name of the lovely shawl featured on the cover of this issue, and we’re proud to say this piece was knit out of our own Newport 16/2 Linen Yarn. The linen highlights rows of Antique Diamond lace and an Antique Lace edging; pairing these open stitch patterns with a textured garter stitch body creates a unique, old-fashioned (in a good way) finish.
Cabana, the shawl pictured above, was inspired by the classic colorful changing tents found along beaches in the early 1900’s. A large retro blanket shawl that you can really wrap yourself in, this piece is worked from the center out, with each striped wing knit back and forth separately. Knit out of Cascade Ultra Pima Cotton Yarn, this shawl is easy to wash and great in any season.
The last piece I’ll give you a sneak peek of is the French Line skirt. This kick-pleated skirt would be beautiful knit up in Block Island Blend Yarn. Or, consider a warmer fiber like Swans Island Fingering Organic Merino Wool Yarn to bring this skirt with you into the colder months.
With five more timeless patterns in Filament No. 3 Summer 2017 you’ll enjoy a showcase of delicate, detailed pieces that are not only beautiful, but wearable as well. We very much look forward to the next issue, Fall 2017, which will be available in print next month – we’ll keep you posted!
