Knit Wear Love with Amy Herzog

April 7, 2015

Knit Wear Love, Amy Herzog’s newest book, is an exciting new collection of tips, tricks, and fully-customizable patterns to help knitters make sweaters they’ll love wearing again and again. Blue Sky Alpacas is pleased to be a recommended yarn for these three designs: the Romantic Cowl, the Classic Cardigan, and the Modern Pullover.

The Romantic Cowl is a variation of the cowl “meta pattern” found in Knit Wear Love. It’s shown here in our Brushed Suri yarn, which is a blend of 67% baby suri alpaca, 22% merino and 11% bamboo. Simple stockinette lets the lusciousness of the yarn shine through: the naturally-occuring halo gives it a soft, romantic touch to create a snuggle-worthy sweater!

The Classic Cardigan is a variation of the cardigan “meta pattern” featured in Knit Wear Love. Shown here in color #1973 Rogue in our TECHNO yarn, a featherweight blend of 68% baby alpaca, 22% silk and 10% extra fine merino. This sweater will feel light and lofty despite being knit at a bulky gauge; the allover texture creates visual interest, while the v-neck adds a traditional touch.

The Modern Pullover is a variation of the pullover “meta pattern” from Knit Wear Love. Shown here in our Melange 100% baby alpaca yarn, a neutral base color is paired with bright geometric color motifs on the edges to create a contemporary look. The asymmetrical neckline gives it an unusual, unique twist for those truly wishing to make a fashion statement!
