Have you seen the Vogue Knitting Early Fall 2014 issue yet?

VKEF14Cover_small_webIt was supposed to hit newsstands on July 8. I saw it the other day at my grocery store.

As usual, it is full of interesting articles and eye catching patterns.

I was especially excited to see this interesting top in the “Turn, Turn, Turn” section.

Item name: Drop Shoulder Pullover

Designer: Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton

Yarn Information: Noro Taiyo

For sizes: Small, Medium, and Large

Amounts: 4 (4, 5) skeins in #49

Add the Drop Shoulder Pullover to your Ravelry queue.

Not only is this a unique garment that you won’t find it stores, but it looks like a fun sweater to knit, too!

Noro Taiyo yarn is a 40% Cotton, 30% Silk, 15% Wool, 15% Nylon blend with 220 yards per 100 gram ball. With a suggested gauge of 4.5 sts/inch, projects move along at a nice rate.

She recently released the Ursula Top as an independent pattern.

It is knit using Noro Kirara yarn, a 51% Wool, 29% Cotton, 10% Silk, 10% Angora. I used Kirara to knit my Metalouse shawl a few months ago.

The Ursula Top has interesting triangular openings, compared to the neat and orderly squares of the top in Vogue Knitting.

IMG_4704The yarn spotlight page of the Early Fall 2014 issue of Vogue Knitting is about “denim” yarn and includes Jesse from the Louisa Harding line.

Jesse is a 100% Cotton Denim yarn that is available in 22 colors.

You might remember that I used it to knit the Miss Kitty Top from book #125-Jesse.

When I first finished the top I was worried the fit was a little snug, but it is better every time I wear it. The yarn is “breaking in” wonderfully!

You can preview it on our main website.
