Patternum Novum: Parapluie

Have you all seen the Fall issue of Twist Collective yet? As ever, it is gorgeously styled and shot, and I was honored to have had a design included.

Parapluie is a tunic knit in a lovely grey alpaca with an a-line shape and this umbrella-y stitch pattern going up both sides:

It's knit all in one piece from the bottom up, with a circular yoke and a ribbed turtleneck topping things off. It was actually a pretty quick knit, despite its long length. And the Umbrella stitch motif adds enough interest to break up the big Stockinette portions and keep you on your toes.

The deets --

It's so exciting to see your work pop up! I just told a friend last night to consider knitting a Citron on her trip to Egypt. I have knit two and know there are a few more waiting in the proverbial wings.
