I swear, I can't forecast trends.
But it was a little eerie when I realized that I was TOTALLY ahead of the trend curve this June at TNNA. I discovered this bit of magic while watching the fashion show.
As I sat there, poncho after poncho came down the runway. And all I could think of was that sweet, cabled poncho I had designed for the Knit Picks fall 2015 collection, Harris.
Harris came out of my love of the cozy, fixation on pleats, and admiration of cables and texture. This is a garment that is sort of a poncho/sweater hybrid. It's knit in the round from the bottom up; the sleeves (cuffs, really) are picked up from provisional cast ons and knit afterwards.
Why you want to knit Harris:
- it's seamless
- you get to play with pleats
- it's easy to throw on for an extra layer, when you're enjoying a lovely autumn stroll outdoors
- just take a peak at those cables and texture. Mmmm....
I'll be giving away a copy of Harris to one lucky Canary Knits Mailing List member this week. Not a member? Join here.
