Last year, Anne knit her own “Slope,” a curved-hem tank in the lightweight Shibui Twig. Most of the time it lives on the wall here at the shop, though she’s taken it down for special occasions, the likes of a wedding, and TNNA.
The design has been a runaway hit for Shibui as well as our shop, requiring several reorders of Twig in “Brick,” the color Anne’s “Slope” is made in.
This new teal “Slope” belongs to Sandy Barnes, Shibui’s sales manager and someone we love to catch up with at TNNA each year. She knit her “Slope” in Dune, making it a fall and winter layering piece that looks sharp over a long-sleeved tee or button-down collared shirt. Though the fiber content is very different from Twig, Dune possesses just as much drape, which very much suits the shape of this garment, whatever the season.
We’ll have Sandy’s “Slope” in Dune on display throughout August, and are offering a 10% discount on Dune purchased for this project until August 31st. Come by the shop to see it for yourself and plan a “Slope” for your own fall wardrobe!
