My contributions include the Janus Cardigan (on Ravelry here)...
which is made from Knit Picks Gloss DK, a wool-silk blend, and is constructed from the bottom up in one piece with a raglan yoke. The unexpected element?
A keyhole opening in the back, lined with ribbing.
I named Janus for the Roman god of transitions and gates -- a nod to the keyhole as well as to the transition from winter to spring, from dark to light, which is what this collection is all about.
Tule (here on Ravelry) is a long-sleeved pullover made from Aloft, Knit Picks' silk-mohair yarn, knit from the top-down with a circular yoke.
The collar and slightly puffed sleeve cuffs are embellished with Linen Stitch, which has a much different feel than usual when worked in this airy yarn.
Tule is the fog that spreads through California's Central Valley in the winter and early spring -- the mohair knit at loose gauge reminded me of its wispy clouds and mist.
Let's hear it for the Knit Picks team for putting together such a stunner!
