Spotlight: Debbie Bliss Juliet

The Mia yarn I just used to knit a new pair of fingerless mitts is not the only new cotton blend from Debbie Bliss this season.

Debbie Bliss JulietWhile Mia is a cotton/wool blend in solid colors, Juliet Summer Tweed is a multicolored 52% Cotton, 48% Acrylic blend. It is available in 12 colorways.

Juliet Summer Tweed is also machine washable on a cold, gentle cycle! But you should still dry flat. Of course, many people still prefer to hand wash their hand knits as they feel the machine will stretch out the garment too much, but it’s nice to have the option!

There are a number of lovely Juliet Summer Tweed patterns to tempt your knitting needles, in both the Juliet book and the current issue of Debbie Bliss Magazine.

Allow me to highlight a few of my favorites.

162728This Cable Neck Top is enchanting. I like the combination of the simple stockinette body with the bold collar.

Of course, the fun coloring of Juliet Summer Tweed means even stockinette stitch fabric looks anything but simple!

162731The fun, military styling of this Double-Breasted Jacket is very appealing. Big buttons are “in” this year!

The trim is a touch of Cashmerino Baby yarn. This top would have minimal finishing, since the sleeves are worked in one piece with the body.

162737There is something very fun about this Tee Shirt Top that I can’t quite put my finger on.

Maybe it’s the combination of the fun Juliet Summer Tweed colors with the bold Cashmerino Baby hem.

Or maybe it’s the casual styling, which makes this look like a comfortable top to wear.

Either way, I think it would become a wardrobe staple.

What do you like about the tops I’ve highlighted?

There are several more Juliet Summer Tweed patterns you can flip through.

    I love the Cable Neck Top. It would be lovely for day or evening. The collar would “pop” with a nice suit jacket. The Tee Shirt Top is a fun top, also.I love the colors.
