WARM WEATHER KNITS


WARM WEATHER KNITS

DEBORAH NEWTON    Book Number: 84828    Product format: Paperback

Nowadays sweaters are knitted with lighter yarns and fibres and shapes and designs are different too, so these lighter sweaters are perfect for cover ups even on a steamy August evening. Here are cool shades of green and blue, sand and water in this mixture of vintage and old sewing patterns with ideas from foreign vacations from the famous Rhode Island American designer Deborah Newton who sold her first sold her sweater design to McCall's magazine in 1982. There is a beautiful ribbed cardigan in a soft blend of cotton, bamboo and silk with a little glint of metallic gold where the waistline is drawn in with a velvet or silk ribbon. For detail she added some orange tinted mother of pearl buttons etched with flowers and picked out a luscious silk ribbon to weave through the eyelets. The elbow-length sleeves can be folded up for a sportier look or could be shortened and a variation would be perhaps stripes and a yarn tie to make a more casual, even nautical look. The following pages print in bold the exact instructions together with close up step-by-step photographs and the template designs which could be photocopied and enlarged to work from. The next project is a cap sleeved cardi with little wooden toggles inspired from a 1930s movie starring Claudette Colbert. It is beautifully shaped at the back to fit snuggly on the waist. There is a lovely natural summer bag with knitted handles, a lace pullover with scalloped edges, a Fuji summer kimono in colourful soft cotton brightly coloured yarns, a honeycomb and leaf shawl made with silk or rayon or perhaps one of the softer new fibres like soy or bamboo which have a pretty sheen and also drape nicely. There is a peridot dress, a vest, various shawls and shorter cardigans, a two-way tunic and in total 23 breezy, fashionable knits including a man's tank top. 128pp, 9" x 11" in softback, dozens of colour photos and diagrams.
