The Interweave Knits preview is up! Here are a few staff favorites:
Bavarian Tulip Mittens by Judy Alexander – worked in on skein of Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted (available at the shop). These would also be lovely in Fibre Company Terra or Madelinetosh DK.
Leitmotif Cardigan by Carol Feller – worked in the Fibre Company Terra. Sizes and yardage: 32 (36, 41, 44, 48, 52)” bust circumference, 10 (11, 13, 14, 15, 16) skeins
This project is knitted from side to side, which allows for the horizontal cables. Simply gorgeous in the tweediness of Terra. Another tweed that would work well: Berroco Blackstone tweed.
Cloisonné Jacket by Deborah Helmke – worked in worsted weight alpaca blend. Sizes available and yardage required: 38 (42, 46, 50, 54)” bust circumference, 860 (1075, 1290, 1505, 1720) yards
Nothing makes me happier than a worsted weight fair isle project…there are so few out there! This design is just stunning. I am thinking Cascade Eco Alpaca (coming in soon in lots of colors!), Louisa Harding Aran Kashmir, Stonehedge Fiber Mill Shepherd’s Wool, or Fibre Co Canopy Worsted.
Leyfi Pullover by Rosemary (Romi) Hill – worked at a chunky gauge by combining an aran and a lace weight yarn together on US#10 needles. Sizing: 36 (40, 44, 48, 52)” bust circumference.
I love all things lace and leaf. This just got bumbed to the top of my must knit list. Now to figure out what to use…I’ll be honest, yardage on this one is going to be tricky. I might just go crazy and combine a strand of Neighborhood Fiber Co worsted with a strand of her Loft or Pagoda Lace…
Just in case you didn’t catch the lace leaf detail:
Elementary Vest by Melissa Wehrle – worked in sportweight wool. Finished sizes: 32½ (36, 39¾, 43¼, 46¾, 50½)” bust circumference. Yarn requirements: 600 (600, 600, 800, 800, 800) yards color A, 400 yards color B, 200 yards color C.
Chiral Cardigan by Coralie Meslin – worked in a chain plied yarn from Rowan (Lima). We recommend the new Louisa Harding Kashmir Aran as a great substitute. Sizing and yardage: 32 (36, 40, 44, 47, 50)” bust circumference, 700 (800, 900, 1000, 1100, 1200) yards.
This sweet sweater can be dolled up with our small flower buttons from One World Button Supply.
Arching Cables Jacket by Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark – worked in aran weight merino / camel blend. Sizing and yardage: 32½ (36, 41½, 43, 48½, 52)” bust circumference, buttoned. 768 (768, 896, 1024, 1152, 1152) yards
I am thinking a cute patterned button up shirt under this little jacket and working it in a good tweed or woolly yarn like Imperial Stock Ranch.
