Brioche Popover – 244

Designed by Kate Salomon

A classic design can become a wardrobe treasure, a piece that you find yourself reaching for no matter the occasion. This simple oversized layering piece is stunning enough to be a statement while being equally suited to “popping over” any outfit (including your pjs). The lushly textured ribbing is created with three different brioche techniques for a comfortingly squishy fabric that is a pleasure to wear. Select a gradient yarn for a dramatic effect, or quintessential neutrals for a vest that will never go out of style.

We’ve collected several instructional videos together into a youtube playlist that will demonstrate some called for techniques that you may not already be familiar with, including managing short rows while working two color brioche, a three needle bind off for two color brioche and a decorative Icelandic purled cast off.

Seeded Pullover – 238

Designed by Maureen Clark

From the beginnings of a flower to the germination of an idea, seeds can hold all kinds of magic.  Our new pullover features a contemporary oversized shape off set by delicate seed stitch texturing.  The wearable boxy shape can be layered over everything, and the versatile tweedy fabric makes this piece a wardrobe basic you’ll love.

Shown here in Aquamarine Sylvan Spirit with about 10″ or positive ease.
