Louisa Harding patterns in Vogue Knitting!

The Vogue Knitting Winter 2013/14 issue features four patterns by Louisa Harding using her delicious faux fur yarn Luzia.

VKW13-14Since Luzia is a 80% Viscose, 20% Nylon blend, no animals were harmed to create it’s furry goodness. This yarn knits up into a wonderfully plush fabric that you’ll want to pet.

The fur trend is still going strong in current fashion. You can see some examples on our Pinterest board. One of our field reps even saw a picture of a rock star wearing a fur cowl in an inflight magazine!

We found out about these patterns in Vogue Knitting months ago, but had to keep our mouths shut. It’s exciting to finally get to tell you about them!

The last pattern is the Shaped Capelet, shown here paired with the Keyhole Scarf. Like the Ruby Cowl, the Shaped Capelet takes just two balls of Luzia. I bet you could knit these up in time to wear to a New Year’s Eve party!

neck edge width: 26″
Length: 7″
Amounts: 2 balls in #008 grizzly (black)

To see more views of the garments, including the Shaped Capelet on its own, check out the Vogue Knitting 360 feature on the magazine website. You can preview the entire magazine, or click on the “playlist” link in the left corner of the video viewer and look for #21 for the start of the Louisa Harding patterns.

On a related note, I’ll point out this issue also includes a fabulous blanket using Debbie Bliss Rialto Chunky yarn.

The great part about buying this issue of Vogue Knitting at your local yarn store (instead of the grocery store), is that you can buy the yarn at the same time!

Have you embraced the fur trend this season? How are you working it into your wardrobe?
