What could be more appropriate for the 1st of September than an image of a plaid pullover, eh? (Even if temps are headed into the ’90s over here.) This black-and-white number was photographed on model Alex Yuryeva, and my inner back-to-schoolgirl wants it. Debbie Bliss’ Tartan Sweater pattern is a perfect match in terms of the kind and scale of the plaid, and at least one of the recommended yarns comes in black and white. (Another option would be Quince and Co’s Osprey in Frost and Crow, pictured.) All we need to do to make it more like Alex’s is to knit solid black ribbing at the waist and cuffs before embarking on the plaid, and then knit a black ribbed neckband instead of the turtleneck. The only hardship is finding a copy of Milano, the Debbie Bliss booklet this pattern was published in. Why oh why don’t people make things available for download?
See Vanessa’s post for more views of Alex’s outfit and sweater.
