Shellie Anderson is the in-house designer for Shibui, the mind behind the simple, elegant garments the company is so well known for. Each season, we look forward to seeing what she’s been working on and the Fall/Winter 2017 season is no exception. Let’s take a look at the new Shibui pattern collection!
One of the first things we learned about Shibui back in 2013 when we first became a stockist is that they encourage yarn-mixing: working with two or three strands of yarn at a time to create bespoke fiber and color blends. The “Athos” cowl, above, mixes tweedy Pebble and fuzzy Silk Cloud for a unique effect.
They’ve continued that practice ever since, and each new yarn they produce means more possible combinations. Their newest yarn, Birch, plays well with old favorites Cima and Pebble in “Zona” and “Odessa,” respectively.
Sometimes they let one yarn shine, however, as in the garter stitch “Fresco” pullover below.
Come by the shop to see the full collection and to plan your fall knitting!
