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!

Julie Turjoman has designed the close fitting, High Low Tunic, with a split back and gorgeous slipped stitch texture. Once the body pieces have been knit and seamed the bodice is picked up and worked in the round. While we are sold out of the Winter Lake colorway we have quite a few fun and summer color in Longmeadow. Go classic and beachy with Natural, or add a splash of color with Periwinkle or Coral.
