close knit: the neighborhood yarn shop

Tuesday, July 10, 2012


I wanted to entice you all with photos from the second issue of knit.wear, but we only have a few copies left!  I'll show you my favorites anyway.

The magazine is divided up into beautifully-styled sections, each with a nice coherent theme.  Knit Minimal showcases some simple stitch patterns with big impact.  The Linen Stitch Jacket has a pretty shape.  This would be amazing in Cascade Venezia, a wool and silk blend with the perfect drape and shine.

The Chevron Vest would be nice in one of our many bulky wools, especially Debbie Bliss Glen for a little added color interest.  Classic Elite Sprout would make a great summer version.

The One-Seam Shrug is very weird and cool. 

The Tulip Sleeve Pullover is part of With Dimension.  Check out those amazing twisted sleeves.  This would be so pretty in Berroco Ultra Alpaca or Flicker for a little sparkle.

The Froth Moebius is knit with pretty Cascade Alpaca Lace, and would be perfect in Classic Elite Silky Alpaca Lace, too.

The Nonesuch Cowl is made with Rowan Lima, a luscious chained alpaca.  Just three balls and a relatively straightforward pattern...this looks like a winner.

The Twist Pullover can be worn twisted up or open, as shown on the cover.  It is knit with fingering yarn, so the possibilities are kind of endless.  We have a gorgeous silk blend from Kollage called Silk-a-Licious that would be amazing.

The Cinched Sweater Coat has a lovely little cabled back detail.  Oh, it looks so warm and cozy, doesn't it?

On Air is a lovely collection of lightweight pieces knit with pretty yarns.  The Medallion Edge Cardigan is knit with Scrumptious Lace, which we have in many shades.

I LOVE the Linen and Lace Cardigan, knit in Classic Elite Soft Linen.  Love.  Look at that beautiful detail.

Ruche is a collection of pieces with some interesting textural details.  The Crimped Cardigan is really pretty, don't you think?

The Origami Pullover begs to be knit with Elsbeth Lavold Silky Wool.

The Ripple Cowl is knit with your favorite sock yarn.

Seamless is a collection of interesting pieces, too.  The Deep-V Tee would be cool in Tahki Ripple, I think.

The Bias Lace Shell would be really great in Cascade Ultra Pima.

These are just my favorites.  Which ones caught your attention?
