There is nothing as classic and elegant as black and white. Clean and deceptively simple, black and white is always the right choice. And now our friends at Making have put together an entire issue of their always wonderful magazine dedicated to the color combination.
Making No. 6 ($24) is packed with incredible projects; as always delicious recipes, great sewing and craft projects, and so many incredible knits for you to play with. We’ve picked some of our favorites from the the latest issue to inspire you. Your yarnistas are ready to help you pick out fibers for all these projects.
Marled Pullover by Ashley Yousling
Everyone needs a little black pullover in the closet. The perfect garment for cool days, and so easy to dress up and down for your moods. Make this in the incredibly soft and luxurious Woolfolk Sno, and you’ll never want to take it off. Work this up in squishy-soft Woolfolk Sno.
Artic Owl Hat and Mitts by Amy Christoffers
Head into winter in style with a new matching set of mitts and hat, with a soft graphic pattern. Try out Brooklyn Tweed Peerie, Woolfolk Sno, or Knerdstring Fingering for this charming pattern.
Michel by Junko Okamato
Black and White means you get to have even more fun with patterns. Graphic colorwork shows up beautifully with a stark palette, and this sweater is a fun and stylish addition to your wardrobe. We recommend working this up in De Rerum Ulysse or Di Gilpin Lalland.
Black Sheep White Sheep by Susan B. Anderson
Of course, nothing is as fun as having your own little sheep. Susan B. Anderson is a master of knit toys, and has the most adorable little sheep for you to make. Try these in Shepherd’s Wool Worsted for a classic toy.
