Filament Fall 2017
Grab your cable needle! The Clearance - Filament No. 4 Fall 2017 issue is here, and its new collection of patterns is as finely detailed as ever. Designer/editors Kathleen Dames and Anne Podlesak took a slightly different approach to this issue: each of them came up with designs using the same yarn in the same colors, with the one rule that they couldn’t talk about these designs whilst in progress. The result is an amazingly cohesive collection that really shows how well these two designers’ styles fit together.
Lace lightens up this cabled poncho, which is knit in two pieces and sewn together at the end. Made out of a woolly yarn like Harrisville Highland Yarn - Washed Skeins, it’s sure to keep you warm even in open lace.
Same yarn, different designer! This Covert cardigan uses the same woolly yarn to create a warm winter staple. Covert is knit from the bottom up with a raglan yoke, traveling cables and a subtle shawl collar.
Variegated sock yarn like Malabrigo Sock Yarn or [Sorry, item discontinued or temporarily out of stock] lends a nice subtlety to the textured triangle motif of these Fomhar socks.
No cable needle required for this intricate stitch pattern! Knit out of the same yarn as the Fomhar socks above, you could easily use Malabrigo Sock Yarn for some very impressive mitts. These mitts are worked in the round, with an easy to read chart for the Hedge Maze stitch pattern.
Looking through the Clearance - Filament No. 4 Fall 2017 issue, it is a pleasure to see these two designers’ different takes on the same yarns. Their flattering shapes and attention to detail add a feminine touch to traditional woolly garments, and that attention to detail is what makes these designs truly unique. Enjoy – and check out the other issues of Filament as well!
