Will I Knit These 3 Wool Studio Projects in 2019?
Although I have admired Wool Studio since its inception, I have yet to knit a project from this particular Interweave publication. THERE ARE TOO MANY PROJECTS TO KNIT, PEOPLE! Don’t judge me. I’m working on it.
Wool Studio Vol. V released this past December, and the projects are absolutely gorgeous. Three in particular have caught my eye, and it’s taking all my willpower to not just buy all the yarn right away. They are classic Hannah knits—solid color projects with large sections of mindless knitting and hints of texture that have chic and modern silhouettes. Keep reading to find out which ones I want to knit!
1. MEDICI PULLOVER
The Medici Pullover is my idea of the perfect sweater to knit and wear. It has gorgeous textured details at the neck, the bottom of the body, and the sleeves. The main portion of the body is knit in stockinette stitch in the round, so there is literally zero thinking to do. Additionally, it has a straightforward and traditional silhouette, and it’s knitted in luxurious yarn.
I love these kinds of sweaters because I really enjoy knitting them, and they go super well with my wardrobe. I don’t wear a large quantity of different clothing items—my coworkers will tell you that I definitely have my favorite staples. Easy-to-wear layers with a little extra room to them are exactly the types of items I successfully incorporate into my wardrobe and wear ALL THE TIME.
2. LUCCA PULLOVER
The Lucca Pullover has similar positives going on (for me) as does the Medici Pullover. There is no waist shaping (of which the Medici Pullover has very little), it has an allover stitch pattern that is easily memorizable, and it’s both cozy and comfortable to wear. The herringbone stitch adds a soft texture to the fabric but is not difficult to work. This would be a great sweater to wear with my go-to denim jeans and sassy low-cuff suede boots, or over a dress (which I truly do not wear often).
I also love the neutral gray of the project that was photographed in the issue. Brown Sheep Company has a wide variety of colors in their yarn lines, but any gray or black sweater is guaranteed to catch my eye.
3. GALILEO SCARF
I haven’t wanted to knit a scarf in a long time! I’ve been a kerchief and cowl girl for a while now. However, the Galileo Scarf looks like such an amazing knit, it would wield an experience more akin to sweater knitting than scarf knitting. It’s incredibly long (almost 100 inches), and it has a gorgeous broken rib pattern with cables running down the center. It would be a commitment, but when followed through, this would be a staple accessory for the coldest of Colorado winter days.
I would probably knit this project in the gold spice colorway that is featured in this issue. It’s absolutely perfect.
In what colors should I knit these projects? I want to know what you’d do! Stay tuned to find out if I start (and finish) these projects!
