knit.wear fall/winter 2017

Just in time for winter, [Sorry, item discontinued or temporarily out of stock] is sure to get you longing to make yourself something nice. This collection of sophisticated designs is the perfect opportunity to use luxurious yarns that are as gratifying to knit with as the finished piece will be to wear. This issue features 22 elegant patterns – twenty-two of them!  Here are some of my favorites:

The Bianca pullover, designed by Kephren Pritchett.

The Bianca pullover has a bottom up body and top down sleeves. I love the unique cables! This piece works up quickly in the bulky Jo Sharp Silkroad Ultra Yarn, a very soft and squishy blend of 85% Wool, 10% Silk, 5% Cashmere. You could also consider Baby Alpaca Grande by Plymouth Yarn for a slightly looser, more drapey fabric.

Eckersberg pullover, designed by Sarah Solomon.

This pullover features allover texture with a beautiful cable pattern on the front. It is worked bottom up in pieces and seamed – and because the cable detail is only on the front, the rest of the textured stitch pattern will be a breeze to work up. [Sorry, item discontinued or temporarily out of stock] would be perfect for this piece; this incredibly soft yarn offers excellent stitch definition. I also wouldn’t mind wearing one of these made out of [Sorry, item discontinued or temporarily out of stock] . Although Stratus doesn’t offer quite the same stitch definition, it certainly doesn’t hide fancy stitchin’ (Like the textured stitch pattern in my Fortitude Ponchette Pattern).

Bendz pullover, designed by Mary Anne Benedetto.

I can’t think of anything fancier than a sweater knit from 100% cashmere. The Bendz pullover is just that – but it looks as just as comfortable as it is precious! Not only does it look beautiful, but this piece features some really clever construction. The front, back and pockets are worked from the bottom up, with the sides picked up and worked horizontally. Who isn’t a sucker for pockets? For ultimate luxury use Jade Sapphire Cashmere 2-ply Yarn. This would also be beautiful knit up in Juniper Moon Farm Herriot Fine Yarn. Like, really beautiful.

The Big Sur Pullover, designed by Norah Gaughan.

This [Sorry, item discontinued or temporarily out of stock] issue includes a few pieces from Wool Studio Vol II – such as this incredible pullover. Worked in an all-over interrupted brioche pattern, the unique neckband lends an artistic flair to this very wearable sweater. Knit up in Jo Sharp Mulberry Silk Georgette Yarn, this would drape beautifully and wear well against your skin. Alternately, you could use Victorian 2-Ply Wool Yarn for a warmer, woollier version.

Although it’s mostly about the patterns (no complaints here!), this issue of knit.wear also includes a very intriguing article about mock cables; which is a technique I’m very excited to explore! Between that and the large collection of modern designs, this [Sorry, item discontinued or temporarily out of stock] issue offers a season’s worth of inspiration. Get ready for some extra luxurious winter knitting!
