It's a new year and we have new project ideas to share! Our amazing team of sample knitters has helped us create beautiful new garments that we'll be delighted to show off for the first time at Stitches West (February 18-21 in Santa Clara, CA).
One of two new Joji Locatelli shawls that we are bringing to our first show of 2016. Jujuy is that wonderful crescent shape created with subtle textures that offers a canvas for you to play with colors. We've chosen three unique neutrals, but you could go for brights, jewels, pastels, gradient, tonal, you name it! Jujuy is shown in Yummy 2-Ply in Cacao, Field Mouse, and Oyster.
This Joji stole is a stripy chevron rectangle that you can drape, wrap, and snuggle into no matter what is on your schedule. It looks great across your shoulders over a cami or summer dress, and it partners with your cold weather clothing too. This is another opportunity to showcase your favorite color combination, or branch out with new choices. Southern Spirit is knit in Yet, shown here in Oxidized Silver and Muslin.
We love sweaters that flatter without tricky knitting or finishing techniques, and Cala Luna can be knit with just two skeins in the first two sizes! This bold colorblock sweater is knit in Yowza, shown here in Oyster and Sweet Pea.
This asymmetrical shawl will allow you to knit up ALL of that gorgeous skein into a shape you can wear over lots of your wardrobe. Easy knitting for car, public trans, knit night, or any "sit-uation". We chose a skein of Yowza in Sea Life to create Janina Kallio's Herald, but you could use Keira, Yummy 2-Ply, Tarte, or Caroline.
The poncho is a hot accessory that is easy to knit and wear! Divvy is chic and classy in lightweight Katahdin, shown here in one of our new colors, Stonewashed. The simple lines will work with both subtle and bold color selections. It's NOT your 70's poncho!
Romi's shawls are always a joy for the eyes and the knitter's hands! Simee Dimeh features bands of texture and color, lace and mosaic knitting. It will make you smile each time you wear this beautiful triangle. Our Favorite Boots Polydactyl Sets have all the colors you need, or you can choose your own set from our many Yummy 2-Ply Toes.
We first became aware of this quick knit at a trunk show, and loved the way it looks great on everyone! The knitting is easy but not boring with quick results. This is a smaller poncho that takes the chill off your shoulders in the spring and fall. This is perfect for all our DK bases - Kaweah, Kunlun, Northumbria DK, or even Yowza. Our version of Kate's Poncho is knit in Sugar Kaweah.
Poly Chevron Cowl in a Gradient Set & pop color
The Poly Chevron Cowl is a free pattern with endless color choices! This time we are highlighting one of our new Gradient Sets (in Ursa Major) and a fresh new yellow-orange, Saffron, for a trendy, graphic cowl. You can plug in your favorite colors and create YOUR new favorite cowl.
Black to the Fuchsia
Black to the Fuchsia is a long, colorful asymmetrical triangle from Casapinka to spotlight your favorite Miss Babs Gradient Set. Garter stitch and slipped stitches make for relaxing knitting time as you work from tip to picot bind off on the short edge. This is a beautiful way to knit your favorite color mixed with a neutral.
Stitches will be here in just a week! We can't wait to see everyone and enjoy some California sunshine.
