The newest issue of Knitscene will be hitting the stands soon (January 25th), and in my opinion, it is a fabulous issue that you have to check out. I will admit that I am slightly biased however because not only do I have a design in the issue……..I made the cover!!
This is my first cover and I’m pretty excited about it (if you couldn’t tell). The Chiton Pullover [ravelry link] is knit up in Manos del Uruguay Serena and was a fabulous match for this design. Serena is a blend of pima cotton and baby alpaca and was oh. so. heavenly. to work with. Not to mention the drape is pretty incredible for a cotton blend yarn, partially thanks to the baby alpaca.
I designed this pullover with simple lines and ease of wear in mind. Plus it’s a great piece that can be layered in the winter (try a long sleeve tee underneath or a blazer on top) then shed all those layers in the Spring to soak up the sunshine! Ah, Spring. I cannot wait for you!
