The Fall 2013 issue of KnitScene is here!
There are many tempting projects within: plenty of cardigans and pullovers, and a nice selection of shawls, hats, mitts, and other accessories. KnitScene always has a tutorial or two showing specific techniques, and this time it’s all about incorporating chevron stripes into your knitting.
I recognized some familiar yarns in this issue, too; this lacy 2-color shawl is made in the dk weight Malabrigo Silky Merino.
The “Penny Candy” cardigan calls for Fibre Company Acadia, a dk weight blend of merino wool, alpaca, and silk. It looks like a simple, wearable knit, mostly reverse stockinette fabric with a bit of eyelet patterning along the bottom edge, which gives the yarn a chance to shine. Acadia is slightly textured and has a tweedy quality because of the silk slubs in the yarn that take the dye differently from the wool and alpaca.
