According to Vogue, “Cardigans, jumpers, turtlenecks and poncho styles: fashion embraces soft materials like wool, mohair or cashmere. Knits for everyone and for all tastes. For winter 2018, we are giving you a selection of innovative knitwear brands whose soft and warms pieces will keep you warm and trendy.”
How spectacular is that?
“V” is for Vintage.
For us knitters or crocheters, playing with wool/fiber thickness, different hues, asymmetrical shapes, fringe detail, are what we’re going for as a designer or even as a consumer. The 70’s vibe is back, baby!
Knitwear has been with us for decades, drifting in and out of fashion. Knitting is one of the oldest forms of clothes -making. Hand-knitting has transformed from a necessity into a hobby, and some into a business.
I know for me, when I’m out shopping, even the everyday styles are looking more 70s/80s. It’s hard to wrap my head around it, though…I was a product of the 80s.
I’d love to hear your opinion on what you think of these styles.
Let’s get on board with these styles and see what we can create!
