Twist Style Friday: Foxcroft

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.


 

Happy Friday friends.


I hope by now you have all gotten to take a slow, leisurely flip through our newest issue, maybe with a cup of coffee or iced tea by your side, drinking in the gorgeous.


I keep coming back to this sweater.

 

 

Foxcroft

 

It's rustic and lush. It's far from plain, but it doesn't seem fussy at all. I can't stop looking at it.

 

back detail

 

There is kind of an argyle thing going on in the cables, which to me seems like secret nerd-code. Wearing this sweater is probably the closest I would get to feeling like a browncoat.

I think as far as styling goes, you can't really go wrong if you pair it with something simple, great boots, and maybe a rich color? I went with a cranberry hue, but cobalt, or mustard, or plum would all be totally divine. Sigh.

 

three outfits

 

Aside from "everyday" and "forever", how will you wear Foxcroft?

 

 

Elann Giveaway

*~*~*~*Colorwork*~*~*~*

This word can inspire excitement or fear into the hearts of knitters. Some of us can't get enough of it, stranding and steeking and slipping stitches with aplomb. Others take one look at a multicolored chart and need to lie down.


If you love colorwork, this giveaway (brought to you by Elann) is for you.

Check out these gorgeous patterns and yarn up for grabs!! Zigmund and Kiyomi are both divine examples of the possibilities of colorwork, and Elann Peruvian Highland yarn is the perfect paint to load up your brush with.

Quayside Publishing Giveaway

Knitting books are awesome. There is something about eye-candy you can hold in your hand, and they  often have helpful notes on technique, not to mention the patterns!


I use them the same way I use cookbooks; I don't use the recipes exactly, but I use their ideas, take bits and pieces away to sprinkle on other things. Imagine the sorts of inspirational sprinkles you could add to your knitting with some of these in your arsenal!!

 

Quayside Publishing is giving away four fabulous knitting books, and each of the four winners will also recieve a free Twist Collective pattern of their choosing.
