New Trends in Fashion Knitting

Inspiring Textures & Prismatic Colors

With the change of seasons, rich colors and soft, comfortable fibers seem irresistible. Elements and Cirrus are warm but lightweight, while Lodge and Boboli Quick provide mesmerizing new color combinations. Lacey Metallic and Ric Rac Long Print offer sophisticated new options for making ruffles. Along with yarn-specific pattern booklets, additional collections feature designs embellished with ruffles and a mix of popular cold-weather yarns. Norah Gaughan’s latest volume explores intriguing variations on four sweater constructions, in both subdued and bright colorways.

New Yarns for Fall 2012   

Berroco Elements™
Modern and sleek, Elements boasts a unique two-toned effect. A shimmering nylon mesh encloses soft wool, allowing the fibers to peek through and create a gentle halo of color.
