Twist Style Fridays: Macoun

Published on Friday, 20 January 2017 13:50

very Friday we feature one of the garments from the magazine in a post about styling. We suggest different ways to wear the garment in question using mock-ups from Polyvore. We encourage readers to tell us what they think about these outfits via our Facebook page or Twitter, and if folks want to make their own outfits, please tweet them at us with the hashtag #twiststyle. You can find all of the Style Friday posts here.


 

Happy Friday Twistfans! 

 

This new year is getting real, friends. People are settling into (or out of) their resolutions, planning out their next adventures, thinking about what they want to knit this year. I have a *lot* of feelings about how new year's resolutions function, but I also love making plans and thinking about what I want to call into my life, so I set a few 2017 intentions. I plan to get myself a plant and keep it alive, visit all my friends with new babies, and work towards playing music with friends (one of my besties has loaned me one of her autoharps). What are you wishing for or calling forth for this new year? What do you want to knit?? 

 

It's not a resolution exactly, but a new habit in my life is listening to podcasts. I know they've been around forever, but I'm a late-to-the-party luddite, so I'm just getting to know how awesome they are. Last night I was facilitating a workshop about body image with some youth volunteers at a former workplace, and in the course of two hours, I talked about 3 or 4 podcasts. They're great for knitting to, especially if you're using a chart or counting or knitting something that requires more concentration than permits TV watching. 

 

Maybe something like this

 

Macoun

 

 

Squishy cables, a shawl collar, and simple shaping make Macoun a perfect winter warmer.

This sweater is all about texture, so that's what I thought about putting together these outfits; wool and velvet and leather. Mix it up! 

How will you wear Macoun
