Twist Style Friday: Safdie

Every 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.


 

 

I know that the extended summer we had this year is probably a harbinger of the coming environmental apocalypse, but I have to admit that staving off the first snow until the middle of November is probably my favourite harbinger. 

 

The upside of the chilly weather that has finally arrived is that I find myself VERY MOTIVATED to knit. I finished two languishing sweater projects in the last few weeks (one of which is my own design) , and have made serious progress on two shawl projects. Esther Perel is keeping my excellent company during these adventures, and next on my listening list is the third Harry Potter book and then the accompanying episode of Witch Please.  I hope you are finding time to knit, especially if your projects are from the pages of this lovely magazine

 

Speaking of Twist patterns, have you taken a close look at Safdie

I dig the pretty yoke, the line of eyelets at the rib-edge, the split hem, and the bracelet sleeve.

This lovely yarn is a combo of merino, cotton, linen, and silk, which means it's cozy enough to keep you warm when the snow flies, and also light enough to wear in warmer months. Is this witchcraft (or maybe stitchcraft)?? Probably. 

 

Safdie is a great casual top to wear with jeans or leggings, like your favourite sweatshirt. She can also hold her own as a dressier top, or with trendier pieces. See? 

How will you wear Safdie
