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.
Hey all, Marnie here. It couldn't be any busier for those of us working at Twist. We're hard at work on the Spring issue and reviewing submissions for Fall, so having a moment to reflect on the beautiful Winter 2015 pieces is a welcome respite. All the scrambling and reviewing and hours of work are done for these pieces and having a chance to admire the results of all that work is a great motivator for the editions ahead.
This week, I'm looking at Kizzlekazzle. I remember reviewing Lana Jois' submission and thinking that those densly textured herringbones looked like so much fun to knit. Let's take a look.
Even though its knit in fingering-weight yarn, it looks almost like giant singles in some ultra-soft blend, braided together. Basically, this shawl screams, 'cozy' to me, not because it isn't beautiful, but because it is so wonderfully warm, soft and insulating. The pattern offers three variations; two scarves and a triangular shawl, so you can make the shape and size that suits your wardrobe.
No doubt, this would make a beautiful and functional edition to a wardrobe but that soft, squishy, snuggly design got me thinking about how I'd wear this piece, and since I work from home and spend most of my days in my pajamas, this seems like the perfect way to stay warm without turning up the heat. So this set is in honor of those days when you might binge-watch your favorite show, snuggled up with a pet or three, and have a nice big mug of your favorite warm drink.
How will you wear Kizzlekazzle?
