My newest pattern is here! I’m so excited to show you the Elevé Pullover.
This lightweight, cropped sweater is all about geometrics. Elevé features stranded colorwork, intarsia, and saddle shoulders. It’s knit flat with Rowan Wool Cotton. This is kind of my take on a modern Cosby sweater. The shape and colors bring a fresh look to that iconic design. And, of course, there are triangles.
I imagine wearing this with high-waisted shorts but how cute would it look over a maxi dress? I’m really psyched about this top. It feels very true to my style.
You can get the pattern in Knitscene’s Summer 2015 issue which hits news stands April 13th! You can pre-order it today. Or, if you just can’t wait, you can purchase the digital edition right now! This issue is full of great patterns including a Southwestern-inspired collection and featured designer Allyson Dykhuizen (the brilliant mind behind Holla Knits)!
Don’t forget to add Elevé to your queue on Ravelry!

I know I promised Jon a Timberline (about, what, four months ago? Six months ago?!) but this sweater is so handsome and simple. I want to make one now! My dad’s been asking for a sweater (to replace a moth-eaten one that I had noting to do with in the first place but he sees an opportunity and he runs with it). Perhaps this will one day be the one. He would look great in it. Who am I kidding? I’ve got way too much other stuff to knit! One day! I love you! I’ll never let go!
>> Basically ever since I met the lovely lady behind Mokuyobi Threads, I’ve been coveting this tee. I need to buy it, right?
>> Photographer Christopher Payne gives us a look at the US textile industry, a memory of what it used to be. The photographs are absolutely gorgeous and I think the concept is fascinating. It’s such a shame that so much of our textiles are made overseas. Really just baffling when you think about how just a generation ago the American garment industry was thriving.
>> Speaking of America’s textile industry, check out this fundraiser for Ohio Knitting Mills. They are raising money through indiegogo to make this mill fully operational. Really cool!
>> Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall 2014 collection has a lot of knitted faux-chain mail (for lack of a better explanation) going on. It looks super warm but I hope this does not become a trend. Either way, they’re pretty cool pieces, especially the ones with the beading. You know what, I change my mind. New York has been so goddamn cold, I think I would like to wear one of those.
I’m so sick of this cold weather. I love sweaters like crazy but I’ve had enough. I’ve forgotten what summer feels like! Can’t take a break from my needles or I will surely freeze to death this weekend.
What are you knitting on this weekend?
