The Fall 2014 issue of Interweave Knits is here, and it’s absolutely bursting with sweater patterns!
The cover sweater is knit in Malabrigo Rios, everyone’s favorite hand-dyed, worsted weight superwash merino. I am particularly fond of semi-solid colorways like the one pictured, as they give depth to the knitted fabric without taking away from stitch patterns.
The “Bee Stitch Cardigan” is knit in another favorite superwash merino–Swans Island Organic Washable DK.
I spotted another familiar yarn at work in this “Climbing Rose Henley,” which is knit in Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool. Silky Wool is a sport weight blend of wool and silk in rustic heathered colorways, a dependable yarn that I’ve used for three different sweaters.
Among the many sweater patterns, you’ll also find a technique article explaining the difference between fisherman’s rib and brioche, two springy, squishy texture patterns.
