Ah, fall. It's a safe bet that if you're reading this, you already know the joy of curling up with your knitting on a chilly evening. In summer, I found myself reaching for small, challenging projects to keep my fingers busy on long afternoons. Now, I'm more interested in warm, wearable garments that fit easily into my closet. Since I find myself wearing the same cozy pieces day after day, I also want to knit up something that looks good with a variety of outfits.
Take the easy, clean lines of Eunny Jang's Exposed Seam Pullover in knit.wear. With its wide boatneck and slim waist shaping, I think this silhouette would be flattering with everything from crisp office slacks to a comfy pair of leggings. The yarn, a blend of linen, wool, and alpaca, promises a balanced drape to complement the pullover's modern shape. All pieces are knit in the round and joined seamlessly in a unique combination of vertical and side-to-side stockinette fabric.
The Selvedge Cardigan, by Amy Christoffers, is another versatile knit in knit.wear. The chunky gauge is quick to knit and practical for cold weather. I tend to reach for grandpa-style cardigans, and might lengthen the body and sleeves a bit for extra warmth.
What are the pieces you want in your wardrobe right this minute? Whether you answered a fitted, cropped cardigan or an elegant braided capelet, knit.wear has something for you.
