5 Golden Rings: Luxury Knitting in 5 Patterns
You’ve working hard to make this holiday season bright and warm for your family and friends. You’ve labored to find the most thoughtful gifts. You’ve cooked, cleaned, and entertained. After all these selfless acts, a spot of luxury knitting can keep you going through the season!
I curated a list of the 5 most luxurious sweaters from Interweave Knits this year. Knitting is a powerful tool for stress management, and combining the act of knitting with a soft, luxurious yarn will help you melt away the stresses of the day. Imagine—after a long day of gifting, cooking, and entertaining, you curl up in bed with a warm cup of tea and your new treat-yourself sweater project, knitting up rows of soft cashmere or merino wool.
Thy countenance betrays thine handsome form
And tailored style reveals those lovely lines
In finest cashmere, raglan shapes doth play
Whilst womanhood exudes from fibres purled
Cesario’s Cardigan is named for the main character from Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. Designer Andrea Cull plays with the notions of masculine and feminine couture with strong lines, waist shaping, and soft texture. Cardiff Cashmere Single yarn (100% cashmere, distributed by Trendsetter Yarns) creates a delicate, dreamy fabric that you will want to live in.
Classic, refined, and commanding are words that come to mind when I think about the Donegal Sweater from Interweave Knits Winter 2017 by Moira Engel. The front and back feature a center panel of cable patterning, and a generous shawl collar frames the face. You can dress up this sweater for office wear or add it to your rotation for everyday casualness. The yarn, Arranmore from The Fibre Co. (distributed by Kelbourne Woolens) adds luxury to a classic rustic look with its blend of merino wool, cashmere, and silk.
Tunics are a great choice for allover warmth and comfort. Add in a luxury fiber, and you’ll never want to wear anything else. Sarah Solomon’s Killarney Tunic from Interweave Knits Winter 2017 features an oversize fit with split hem and broken rib edgings. Your fingers will love the incredible texture of Karabella Yarns Superyak (a blend of 50% yak and 50% extrafine merino wool) as you’re knitting.
The Tullamore Pullover from Interweave Knits Winter 2017 by Brandy Velten exudes quiet elegance. Its undulating cables pop in Woolfolk FÅR yarn, giving the garment texture and interest without being overpowering. Woolfolk labels the fiber as “ultimate merino wool,” and we think it lives up to the hype. The sweater features long cuffs and a high collar for extra warmth and comfort.
Tangled Up in Gray Pullover
I saved the most luxurious for last. Sloane Rosenthal’s Tangled Up in Gray Pullover shows off the stunning qualities of Hudson Valley Fibers Hudson yarn. This design from Interweave Knits Fall 2017 features an asymmetrical cable and rib pattern on the front, with a mixture of cables and ribbing up the back. The yarn blends alpaca and corriedale wool, sourced and milled in the Hudson Valley region of New York State.
Explore these patterns and say “yes” to a little indulgence this season. We all know you deserve it!
