Your Pattern Picks: Wool Studio Vol. VII
It’s hard to believe that we’re already on Volume VII of our beloved Wool Studio series! This time around, we’re celebrating asymmetry with 10 designs that will throw your wardrobe off balance in the best possible way. Each design also features a lovely yarn that adds the final twist to this beautiful collection. But you can’t knit every project from the collection—at least not right away! To help you narrow it down, we’ll share the top three patterns rising to the top on Ravelry and other social media sites from this collection.
Biot Pullover by Courtney Spainhower
This comfy yet refined pullover is a stunning piece with a pleasant balance between simple, easy knitting and detailed cable knitting. The wide, straight sleeves add a punch of architectural texture. This is a great piece for any knitter who can use a cable needle! It’s a nice, long pullover that is cozy, casual, and perfect for layering. The yarn is Manos del Uruguay Milo, a Merino and linen blend with just a hint of color variation and incredible drape. Plus, it’s a DK-weight yarn, so your sweater will move along quickly!
Enantiomer Pullover by Estefania Espindola
The Enantiomer Pullover features a simple shape and lots of clean stockinette to keep all of the focus on the intricate twisted-stitch cablework. Don’t fear those cables, though—you’ll have the body pattern memorized in no time, and you’ll be cruising along knitting on autopilot. The yarn used, Plymouth Yarn Homestead, is Aran weight to make things go even faster! It’s a 100% Peruvian highland wool yarn that comes in dozens of tempting colorways.
Hexol Pullover by Stella Egidi
A smart combination of shapes and lines makes this sweater a beautiful addition to every wardrobe. The design gently emphasizes curves with a simple diagonal rib pattern and an asymmetrical neckline. Pick a variegated yarn like Mrs. Crosby Steamer Trunk to make the most of all that texture. This colorway is called “Great-tailed Grackle,” which is so delightfully evocative. Plus, this yarn is 100% superwash Merino, meaning you can machine wash your new favorite sweater!
