New Favorites: Exceptional shawl-collars

New Favorites: Exceptional shawl-collars

Both of these have been alluded to in previous posts, but we are hurtling toward the end of the year (hell-o, November!) when I’ll look back and put together my Favorite New Favorites* of 2016 — the things I most want to not forget to knit someday — and these two have to be properly in the mix, because they’re two of the most covetable sweaters I’ve seen all year:

TOP: Gambier by Lindsay Inouye is a Cowichan-inspired gem and must be a total dream in Hinterland‘s alpaca-rambouillet blend

BOTTOM: Sourcebook Chunky Cardigan by Norah Gaughan (from her must-have Knitted Cable Sourcebook) is a cable-lover’s dream, and the shape of that collar is just perfection

*Take a look at 2015, 2014 and 2013 — such good stuff

  1. Nice! Such perfectly proportioned shawl collars. So happy you shared them. Onto the queue for both. I always feel like I got taken when I knit a sweater with a shawl collar. First I knit a sweater and then I pick up for the collar and knitting and knitting and knitting…and then realize , duh, I am actually knitting a SHAWL onto a sweater, for real.
    These look totally do-able and wearable.
