Thanks for entering the giveaway! Lily is the winner of our giveaway—but stay tuned, we’ll have many more! Huge congratulations to our friends Alicia Plummer and Melissa Schaschwary on their new book Plum Dandi Knits (F+W Media, 2017)! A collection of knits filled with beautiful details in Plum Dandi Knits features 23 projects that reflect the designers’ talent for sweetly feminine knits that are fun to make and sure to be worn forever. We are so thrilled that Alicia chose our Ultra Alpaca Chunky for 3 of her projects—read on for a preview and a chance to win a kit to knit the cover sweater!
Well trodden paths through mountainous trails are represented by the x-and-o motifs adorning each edge. This thick, luxe shawl-wrap is perfect for wrapping up during any season. Knitted flat from the bottom up, the squishy garter stitch and an oversize canvas guarantee warmth and comfort.
In the clearing, mist has lifted to reveal untouched beauty. A single fawn lifts its head swiftly, pausing. The Keene pullover is inspired by moments face to face with nature’s beauty. This updated classic is perfect for any situation, knit with a plush merino-alpaca blend and featuring a flattering straight silhouette and large fisherman’s rib turtleneck. The Keene pullover is worked from the top down as a raglan.
Textured and rustic, these socks are perfect for warming toes by the woodstove and padding silently across the floor when everyone else sleeps. The Lyndon Socks are worked from the top down, with the heel flap worked in short rows.
To see all the patterns from the book visit the Ravelry page.
