I am essentially longing for an entire new wardrobe of sweaters that I can just throw on and look good and be comfy in no matter what. Anyone have some time to help me knit all of these for myself?
Below from Left to Right: Galane by Marie-Amelie designed in Julie Asselin Nurtured. Aleks' Mum made her a version in Cumbria which look fantastic on her and Nest or Triskelion Scylfing Aran would also be fab yarn options.
Slightly lighter weight but just as cosy Midding by Renée Callahan uses a double knit weight yarn. Really the choices are vast for this one - something more rustic looking in Lore, Brusca or Arbor or a bit of drapey elegance in Acadia, Swanky DK or Leizu DK.
Autumn requires layers usually - the day can be sunny and warm and a windy chill can arrive quickly. For a light weight shawl Winter on my Mind by Melanie Berg is a beautiful choice. Knit in lace weight anything from Isager Spinni or Garthenor Number 1 for a rustic version to mYak Baby Yak Lace or Shibui Knits Cima for a softer more elegant look could work.
Mackworth by Andrea Mowry is a cute little pullover with a little colorwork yoke that I just want to throw on with some jeans. I could see this in Leizu Fingering Simple, la Bien Aimée Merino Singles, Meadow from The Fibre Co. or Malabrigo Sock. Also, mix and match any of those yarns together to get the yoke color combo you want!
My friend Fiona made this stunning version of Kune Kune by Olga Buraya-Kefelian a couple of years ago and it was my first introduction to mYak yarns. It's such an interesting pattern by Olga and the Baby Yak Lace is just luscious!
Georgie by Libby Johnson is great piece with great texture on the body and a simple drop shoulder and boxy shape. I'm a big fan of Libby's designs, they are all really wearable. This one in particular I could see with jeans or a skirt or over a dress or under a little jacket - great for the home office. This would be most excellent in Walcot Yarns Opus.
