We’re so excited about Vogue Knitting Spring/Summer 2016. Not only is it packed with over 20 stunning knit patterns from some of our favorite designers, but our own Valley Yarns Charlemont made the cover in a design from Unjung Yun, the Leaf Motif Wrap!
The open spaces that dot this sculptural wrap recall the look of windblown leaves. Knit in Charlemont, a pearlescent wool/ silk blend from Valley Yarns, garter-stitch leaf motifs are worked continuously with cast-on stitches to form a tiered panel. Each subsequent panel reverses the direction of the work, producing the subtly undulating texture. Dropped stitches worked throughout delineate the lacy look. They’ve even put together a quick tutorial on their Youtube channel to guide you through this fantastic technique!
Whether you choose to use Charlemont in natural for a light, ethereal summer wrap or one of the vibrant jeweltones for a richly elegant look, this will be one of those accessories you’ll be happy you spent the time knitting for years to come! The Spring/Summer 2016 issue hits newsstands today so get out there and get your copy!
