Style Your Knits: Emmeline

Emmeline might just be the dress version of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Take four women of various ages, heights and sizes, add this knitted dress, and, if I do say so myself, the results are pretty fabulous! In addition to its magical fit, Emmeline makes a great trans-seasonal garment. It's knit in our new… Continue reading Style Your Knits: Emmeline

Style Your Knits: Paget

What's better than a cozy knit? A cozy knit that can be worn multiple ways! Paget from booklet #350 Clouds is one such versatile knit. The design team planned it as a kind of retro pullover with a button-down back and textured sleeves. But it looks just as great as a cardigan, too! Watch our new Style… Continue reading Style Your Knits: Paget

Amy’s Thread: Knitter Style – Daqin

With simple, good designs, sometimes it's all about the color. I have featured Amy (aka Threadpanda) on here before for her beautiful knits. This time she out did herself. She knit Daqin from booklet #348, in the Berroco Cosma shade #2426 'Plum Blossom,' which compliments her coloring perfectly.   Nice work Amy!   Have you finished any projects… Continue reading Amy’s Thread: Knitter Style – Daqin

Style Your Knits: Clearwater

With its oversized ease and long, fringe hem, there's no denying that Clearwater (from booklet #352 Nomad) is fabulous. But even we were surprised by its runaway success this season. It's easily one of our most popular patterns for Fall/Winter '14.    Want to see why? Watch our new Style Your Knits video!

Style Your Knits: Halyard

We like to joke that there's a dividing line of color preferences in the design office. Amy and Emily are metaphorically (and physically, with our desk arrangement) on one side with their love of neutrals and classic earth tones, while Alison and I prefer jewel tones (Alison even has a pink streak in her hair)… Continue reading Style Your Knits: Halyard

Emily Explains: Styling Knits for In-Between Weather

We're in the middle of our Spring/Summer 2015 photo shoot right now (I can't believe it!) and all I can think about is styling. Styling for the photoshoot (spring/summer style), styling for fall (what am I wearing?!?) and how to wear my beloved handknits with the rest of my wardrobe. This last one I find… Continue reading Emily Explains: Styling Knits for In-Between Weather

Amy’s Thread: Good Finishing Starts at the Beginning

Finishing isn't just the final slog of assembling the pieces - it is the details that make the design. Choosing the right way to finish a project really starts at the beginning. The right cast on complements the bind off and the finishing techniques.  After weeks of deliberating over the best possible yarn shade, I finally cast… Continue reading Amy’s Thread: Good Finishing Starts at the Beginning

Amy’s Thread: Knitter Style – Chock

Angie aka silver bell on Ravelry knit Chock from Norah Gaughan vol. 14, and she styled it perfectly: a good pair of jeans, a classic button down and the cutest loafers! Her look is classic and yet, it feels completely fresh. Here's what she said: "...this one is already a favorite. It feels comfy, like a shawl you’d wrap up… Continue reading Amy’s Thread: Knitter Style – Chock
