Have you seen the Vogue Knitting Early Fall 2014 issue yet?
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
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.
The Ursula Top has interesting triangular openings, compared to the neat and orderly squares of the top in Vogue Knitting.
The 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.
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!
