I just love all the new [tag]geometric[/tag] patterns that are hitting the market lately. [tag]Designers[/tag] and [tag]yarn companies[/tag] are pushing the envelope with their thought processes and designing cutting edge sweater shapes that are not your grandmothers boxy cardigan! My thought are – It’s about time designs are getting trendy! I don’t want to look like a grandma – even tho I am one!
I received an email from [tag]Berroco[/tag] with pics from booklet #259 L’attitude. Berroco describes the booklet as containing “Pieces that make a statement include a swingy cardi that is very short in front and long in back, a circle coat, a one-piece shoulder topper, long v-neck vest with lace panels, a mesh shrug and a dramatic ribbed tunic, generously shaped with a dividend at the hip.”
I just love the shape of Napoli. A swingy cardi is the perfect topper for your layered look. Then there is Nigella with a medalion look in the back center and knit in a circle. A new take on an attention-getting circle cardigan, this time in TouchÃ© with concentric circles of stitch patterning.
