Arriving just before the dead cold of winter, the newest Interweave magazines offers inspiration to keep you warm.
Starting with the heaviest, wrap yourself in cabled warmth with the Quivira Coat, which would look amazing knit up in Brooklyn Tweed Shelter, or take comfort in the all-over texture of the Moraine Jacket, which knits up quickly in Cascade Eco+.
This issue has multiple takes on the Aran sweater tradition. The Quadrille Pullover offers a feminine interpretation with waist shaping, three-quarter length sleeves, and a raglan yoke. Written in DK weight, this sweater would have excellent drape knit out of The Fibre Company Knightsbridge. The Wind at Your Back Pullover is a mishmash of sweater elements. Designed in Imperial Stock Ranch Tracie Too (in the shop), the upper body pays homage to Aran motifs while the lower body and sleeves reference fishermen’s ganseys.
The Cocoa Cardigan was designed to show off the beauty of hand painted or dyed yarns, something we specialize in at the shop. With fairly straight forward lace motif and garter stitch accents, this fitted cardigan would look fantastic in Neighborhood Fiber Co. or any number of hand dyed yarns. The Kittery Point Cardigan features beautiful stranded colorwork. Inspired by classic fair isle designs, this cozy sweater is knit in the round and steeked to add the interest of a button-front closure. Written for fingering weight, this sweater could take on a rich, muted color palette with baa ram ewe’s Titus or try the bolder colors of Hazel Knits.
Beyond sweaters, this issue packs in some interesting accessories. Keep your neck warm with the Bear Lake Cowl, the Fall River Cowl, or the Tanawha Wrap. Bundle up in the Hudson Wrap, inspired by the iconic Hudson Bay Blanket. You could also try your hand at double knitting with either the massive and reversible Muir Wrap or the classic lumberjack check of the Trapper Cowl. For those who are interested in the technique but haven’t taken the leap yet, we’re offering a double knitting class in January.
