My issue of Interweave Knits Summer 2015 hasn’t arrive in the mail yet, but that isn’t going to stop me from telling all of you about it! I’m really excited for this issue for two reasons, I have my first ever print article in this issue and a design!
See the + 200 Years with Harrisville Designs? That’s my article! I wrote about the wonderful Harrisville Designs, their history and how they keep the textile tradition alive here in the US.
I’m also really excited about my cardigan, the Blue Columbine Cardigan. I designed this cardigan specifically with Harrisville Designs Silk & Wool in mind. The yarn is slightly nubbly and extremely lightweight. It’s 50% raw silk and 50% wool, a perfect blend for a lightweight cardigan. The open front and the lace back make it even lighter and it’s just enough to keep the chill away.
I’m also totally in love with the styling and photography of this cardigan–I couldn’t have imagined anything better suited for the style of this cardigan!
If you’d like to read more about my inspiration for this design you can read about it on a guest post I wrote on the Harrisville Designs Blog.
