Ewe Ewe Knitting Trunk Show!
Now, let's take a look at what was inside the box!
Libby's Boyfriend Sweater - This is a fairly new design from Ewe Ewe and has been really popular! My friend, Stephanie Steinhaus of Unwind Yarn in Burbank, shared with me how she came up with this creation. One day she got together with her friend, Libby. Libby was wearing an awesome ready-to-wear sweater that Stephanie just could not stop admiring. What she loved about it was that even though it was a fairly simple design, there were special details that made it really unique. So, Stephanie set out to create her own version of this fashion forward sweater.
First of all, it has a relaxed fit (flattering on most figures!). The bottom edge is ribbed asymmetrical while the boat neckline features a rolled edge. One armhole opening has a dropped sleeve, while the other has a raglan sleeve. She also did something special for the cuffs - one cuff has a ribbed edge while the other has a garter-stitched-edge. Fun to knit project and the results are a sweater you'll wear all season long!
Pop Your Color Cardigan - This cardigan is brand new for fall! In keeping with current style trends, it boasts a pop of bright color on a neutral background. It's a top-down raglan sleeve cardigan with ribbing on the button-bands, cuffs, collar and bottom edge. The pop of color is added just to the collar and cuffs. We love that the raglan sleeve increases were created with an eyelet adding another element of sophistication to this must-knit sweater pattern.
Interlooped Entrelac Cowl - As the only "non-sweater" in this trunk show, we actually love how this cowl pulls all of the line together. I love to knit entrelac and seeing cowl with all of the other garments made me realized how well this project will work with my entire wardrobe! It looks great over sweaters and tucked under a jacket. If you've never knitted entrelac before, this cowl is a great place to start!
Heather's Favorite Cardigan - Another new design for fall! Created by Heather Walpole, she shared with me that like the name says...this really is her favorite cardigan! It's a cropped sweater which makes it perfect for layering over dresses, tees, or even the latest longer button down shirts. It has wide ribbing just below the bust line which accents a gal's "finer features" and 3/4 sleeves so it's not a bulky sweater. Heather used three different buttons (think vintage!) to give this sweater a one-of-a-kind look.
Hadley Hoodie - Designed by Melissa Leapman, the Hadley Hoodie is a cardigan for a knitter who loves detail! The front of this hooded sweater has a zipper closure accented by a wide cable pattern on each side. I love that at first glance I'm reminded of an Aran Isle sweater, yet on further inspection the all over pattern makes it a bit easier to knit.
