Interweave Knits: A Fresh New Look(book) for Spring
Although it’s only February, Interweave Knits Spring 2018 is full of knits for all seasons and all knitters. And no matter the season, it’s never too early to start talking about a new issue of Interweave Knits.
Get a closer look at the beautiful designs in this issue with our new lookbook, which includes additional photography for each project. It’s a fresh way to enjoy the classic-to-unexpected knits in this issue. Let’s take a look at the designs, stories, and features in this issue that have us eager to pick up our knitting needles.
Classic Comfort for a Weekend Retreat
We hit the refresh button on classic knits in our Evergreen Retreat story. This story is about the comfortable, timeless knits we reach for at night and on the weekends. These knits are staples for vacations and mini-getaways. Our cover project, the Clear Creek Cardigan by Sarah Solomon, updates classic cables in a long, modern cardigan with pristine finishing details that will leave curious admirers guessing if it’s machine or handmade.
Get into brioche with the Kittredge Wrapper by Quenna Lee—this sweet cocoon is the perfect project to venture into simple brioche knitting. Choose a lofty yarn to make sure those rows of brioche puff to their maximum potential. This part-cardigan, part-shawl, all-cozy layer is bound for constant wear in any season.
Get Color to Work
An issue of Interweave Knits would not be complete without a few stunning colorwork pieces. In this issue, we have five exceptional colorwork designs to get you stranding. Read our technical article by Roxanne Richardson to learn how to smooth out your colorwork to plain fabric transitions.
Knits for the Open Road
Introducing fresh knitwear—Moto Knits! This collection of knitwear is inspired by motorcycle gear and life spent on the open road. Although we recommend wearing leathers and helmets while riding, these knits are for the times we’re not on our bike (or just wish we had one), including the show-stopping Throttle Moto Jacket by Amy Gunderson.
So even if it’s blizzarding outside, grab your copy of Interweave Knits Spring 2018 for a fiber-filled escape. Let us know which designs are your favorites!
