Metalwork is a collection of five accessory designs, each full of rich, textured stitches and knitterly details.
The idea for the collection began with a hat I designed for The Woolen Rabbit’s 2014 Yarn Club. The interplay of textures that came together for Into Gold reminded me of details found in metalsmithing or fine jewelry. What’s more, Kim’s Emma yarn, a blend of Polwarth wool and silk, gave the piece a fantastic burnished-metal look.
By the time the hat was finished, I knew that some coordinating accessories were in the offing. First to be released is Copperline, a fingerless mitt pattern that uses the same Coin Cables and Woven Stitch pattern found in Into Gold.
The first four patterns, Copperline mitts, Redox boot cuffs, Antimony hat and Into Gold tam are available immediately. The final design will be added by early May 2015.
