Vogue Knitting Holiday 2017
The [Sorry, item discontinued or temporarily out of stock] 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 [Sorry, item discontinued or temporarily out of stock] 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.
