GIVEAWAY! Knit.Wear's Capsule Collection: Wool Studio



Earl Grey and a new pattern book on a Sunday morning, what else do you need? I've always been a fan of the magazine Knit.Wear for its elegance and hidden pops of innovative construction techniques. Do you remember seeing that first cover in 2011? I swooned at that capelet.


Knit.Wear 2011 cover, blogged by Dayana Knits


I haven't been able to keep up with all the issues, so I'm happy that Interweave Press has put together a "Best of" series called Wool Studio. I've got a beautiful hardcover copy of this Capsule Collection of 21 patterns to review... and one copy to give away! And of course, if you just want it NOW, you can purchase it here.

I tend to like patterns with unusual construction or added elements you can only see from certain sides. A lot of these fit the bill!

  1. Brewster looks wonderful! (In case international are in too, my Ravelry id is: matkailijakirppu :)

  2. Hi - My favorite is Eastham. I also like Ojai, but I would find a way to narrow the neck opening, because I hate wide neck openings that cause sweaters slip off my shoulders.
    My ravelry id is 'bettyc'

  3. My ravelry ID is karakav1105 and I LOVE Chatham but I could definitely see myself wearing most of these

  4. So many great designs! I can see why you love it. This displaced California girl loves all the pattern names! Grew up in the Monterey area and lived in Ojai after college. My fave pattern is the Avila Tee. Rav amchart

  9. I was surprised to find Eastham in this collection, because one of my first knitting inspirations was this lovely Poncho for my Sw(eao)ncho, as I called it. I even incorporated this pattern on my Revelry page just from the looking. I would love to knit Eastham, but this time like the one on the picture! This was a Christmas gift for myself in 2016!

  33. Wow, such a hard choice. Such beautiful (and wearable) designs. Favourite would have to be the Topanga Canyon cardigan - I find it rather intriguing. :) rav - therookery

    ReplyDelete
  34. Crikey I love 5 of them without paying too much attention! The one I would definitely knit first would be 'Big Sur' for 2 reasons - i) I love that quirky neckline and the stitch set against a loose, slouchy body, ii) I still dream of running the Big Sur marathon one day before I get too old and decrepit!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Big Sur pullover is for me the most amazing idea! Thank you for inspirations! Raverly: mej10

    1. Hee hee - Ojai caught my eye right away, but it's really a poncho, which I don't wear well, so my vote is for Pacific Grove (though Pismo Beach is nipping on its heels). Btw, is this a "best of" or "brand new" collection? The design names all follow a West Coast/East Coast theme, so if not new then they must have been renamed for the book. Linda Marveng's is the only one that looks familiar to me, but then I've probably seen it on her blog.

      At any rate, thank you for the drawing. If I'm the lucky winner, notify stashdragon on Ravelry.

  41. I, too, love knit.wear and have often rued the fact that you can't subscribe. Hmm, I'm wondering if I could make the Chatham with some yarn I have been searching for the right pattern to suit. Luckily I do have that issue!

    ReplyDelete
  42. It's hard to decide. I'd start with Avila.

    ReplyDelete
  43. So many to choices! so much knitting! I'd start with Monterey. Thanks! NancyGoodrich is my Ravelry name.

  44. My favourite model is the Chatham Pullover by Emma Welford. You can find me on Ravelry. I don`t know where to find the Number. I am relatively new on Ravelry. My name is Christina Hees. You can also find me on Facebook and Youtube under the same name. Love your work and your attitude a lot. Saw you on one of the Fruity Knitting Podcasts today and loved the interview a lot.

  46. Oh gosh, Pismo Beach calls to me as a sweater I would wear all the time, plus I’ve camped there and spent time on that beach. But...but...I raised my family in Thousand Oaks, so maybe I need to make that wrap...actually, there are so many great patterns in this collection, plus, having spent the first forty years of my life in California, just the names bring back wonderful memories so it would be like knitting memories with each pattern. My Ravelry name is cartwrin. Thank you for this post, ever grateful.

  54. I love Chatham. It just has that vibe, you know? And I am notprettytowatch on Ravelry (and no, I do not have self image issues! WhenI was recovering from knee surgery, my friend begged me to get a hobby, because, apparently, my mind at rest is "not pretty to watch". So I picked up knitting. See? It makes sense now!)

  56. I love topanga canyon... but I’m with you, needs a lighter wool... I’d also change the ribbing along the bottom edge, make it a bit longer, & maybe add a wee bit of waist shaping if possible.... but may not be needed in a lighter wool.
