Although Kathleen currently dwells amidst the hallowed halls of Oxford, England, you’ll find a lot of local talent in this book, including Ann Weaver, Karida Collins, and our very own Danielle! (The beautiful photography is local too!)
Danielle designed the Faye Dunaway Traveling Top, inspired by Bonnie and Clyde and knit in luxurious aran-weight The Fibre Company Road to China. (I remember her working very hard on the math to make the waist detailing come out correctly!)
Match it up with a tweed skirt, a beret, a silk scarf and your best Faye Dunaway bank-robber pout and you’ll be ready to… uh… “support your local economy”. (You’ll need 690 – 966 yards of heavy worsted or aran weight yarn.)
Ann Weaver was inspired by the final scene of Plenty when designing the Meryl Streep Chevron Lace Cardigan, knit in The Fibre Company Organik. Updated shaping and sophisticated lace give it a modern spin. (Choose 686 – 1176 yards of worsted weight yarn, vineyard not included.)
Karida Collins jumped at the chance to design something inspired by the iconic style of Katharine Hepburn, the woman that made wearing pants glamorous. Knit up a pair of Katharine Hepburn Fancy Trouser Socks in Karida’s Neighborhood Fiber Co. Capital Luxury Sock (or a skein of your favorite sock yarn) for your indomitable self!
The guys get to glam up as well with Kathleen’s Humphrey Bogart Ribbed Pullover (perfect for those last-minute bombing runs, knit up in 8 – 12 skeins of Stonehedge Fiber Mill Shepherd’s Wool) and Karida’s Steve McQueen Weekend Cardigan (complete the look with a shoulder holster, 1274 – 1862 yards of worsted weight yarn, and a 1968 Mustang GT.)
With a total of 10 patterns, there’s plenty of style for everyone – which will you put in the starring role for your fall projects?
