Twist Style Fridays: Hearthstone

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.


 

 

Last night was one of those winter nights where the wind hurt my face. This is the time for woollens.

This is some very fancy argyle. Hearthstone is cozy and warm, she is also sharp as a tack. I want to give this sweater as a present to Lisa Loeb

This lovely yarn comes in lots of colors, and I can't wait to see the combinations you all come up with for this pattern

I call this set, nerds prepare for (various sorts of) battle. Nerd, for me, is a deeply affectionate term, mostly referring to people with deep and lasting enthusiasm for something specific (yeah, knitting counts). 

Whether your struggle is in a library, courtroom, senate floor, cocktail party, or in the streets; stay warm, and stay awesome. How will you wear Hearthstone

Remember this beauty

Maire is a stunning coat with lovely large-scale cables and a simple closure. In springy wool you get a garment that keeps it's shape, as well as nice definition in the cables. I'll take one in pearly pale grey please. 

 

 

 

Designer Post: Cloudburst

Today's post comes to you from Kephren Pritchett, designer of the lovely Cloudburst cardigan in our newest issue. You can find out more about Kephren by checking out her blog, Twitter, or Instagram! Enjoy. 

 

 

 

 

I have a pattern in the Winter issue of Twist CollectiveCloudburst is an open-front, raglan-sleeved cardigan worked up in bespoke Merino, silk, and mohair yarn from Catherine Lowe.

The yarn is light and warm, with a beautiful drape. The sweater is worked mostly in stockinette stitch with seed stitch borders, but the fronts are worked in a simple yet striking lace pattern.

Cloudburst is completely seamless, so when you’re done, you’re done! (except for weaving in a few ends of course). If you have any questions about the pattern you can ask them in the Kephren Knitting Studio Ravelry Group, or just stop in to say hi! I’d love to hear from you.

Twist Style Fridays: Caulkins

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.

Happy Friday folks! 

 

I'm on a pretty serious knitting binge these days. Something about the weather, I guess. Communing with wool just seems like the best possible use of the majority of my time. This week's sweater is for when you feel like covering yourself with a dense, squishy layer of wool, but you still want to look elegant. Hey there Caulkins. Hi. 

 

 

back

 

 

I love the way the large cables alternate their direction on the front and back panels. I also love the texture of the sleeves. 

 

 

front detail

 

 

I love how the ribbing flows organically into the cables at the hem and the collar, too. This sweater is really a thing of beauty. Even with allover texture and cables on the front and back, this could be a speedy knit with this squishy yarn and 6mm needles. 

 

A sweater with this much personality doesn't need a lot of look to be part of a stunning outfit, but you know me. I don't believe in the idea of too much. The one on the left I've titled "meowlennial" but I don't have enough brain juice to pun the other two because winter.

Throwback Thursday: Evendim

Do you remember Evendim

 

 

collar detail

 

 

This lace and cable pattern is stunning, and the sweater contains just enough of it. 

 

 

hem and cuff detail

 

 

I also love the buttons along the raglan line, which also makes the drama of the asymmetrical shawl collar a little bit adjustable!
