Vogue Knitting Holiday 2017
The Vogue Knitting Holiday 2017 issue is full of Nordic inspiration. From new takes on classic Scandinavian knits to an article (pattern included) on the Danish Sontag shawl, a traditional triangular shawl that sports ties so it can be worn wrapped around your body and still held securely in place. This issue also features a collection of obi inspired knitted belts, monochrome sweaters and even a handful of ruffled tops. Read on to check out some of my favorites:
The traditional Norwegian selburose pattern shown on this blanket is beautiful when knit up in a bulky weight yarn such as Lamb's Pride Bulky Yarn. This blanket is worked in the round and steeked, with a garter stitch and I-cord border.
Size: Approximately 42.25″ x 48.5″
Yarn needed: Lamb's Pride Bulky Yarn, in three different colors:
4 skeins Color A
4 skeins Color B
1 skein Color C
Who doesn’t love a good ski sweater? This handsome pullover has a modern slim fit and a comfortable crew neck. Four shades of heavy worsted or Aran weight yarn work together to show off the pattern details across the top, with a subtle patterned band along the hemline and cuffs to bring it all together. This will be beautiful and soft knit up in Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran Tweed Yarn, or make a sturdy outdoor version out of Peace Fleece Yarn.
Sizes: 37 (42, 45, 50)” chest circumference.
Yardage needed: 1095 (1095, 1314, 1314) yards MC (main color)
219 (219, 438, 438) yards Color A
219 yards each of Color B and Color C.
Crock-O-Dye Sock Yarn by K1C2 is a clever way to make the yarn do some of the colorwork for you in this obi inspired belt. An attached I-cord adorns the outer edges, and the Fair Isle leaf motif is carried through right to the tips of the leaf shaped ties. This pattern is for a size 25-26.5″ waist, and it requires three different colors of Crock-O-Dye Sock Yarn by K1C2, one skein of each color.
In this world of cheerful hand-dyed yarn and the buttery richness of Malabrigo, sometimes solid colored yarn gets overlooked. This textured pullover is worked in a DK weight superwash yarn such as K1C2 Sebago Superwash Merino Wool Yarn or Jo Sharp New Era Merino DK Superwash Yarn. Choose a color that speaks to you and let the stitches do the rest of the talking!
Sizes: 36 (38, 40.5, 44.5, 47, 51)” bust.
Yardage needed: 1520 (1710, 1805, 2185, 2375) yards DK weight yarn.
