I’ve put together my first collection ever! Whew! It has certainly been a learning experience trying to knit, write, format, test knit and edit four patterns at once. I’m really happy with how these four patterns came together, and ever happier with the choice of backdrop my photographer and I decided on.
Olivia (of Olive and West Photography) and I met at Graveyard Field on the Blue Ridge Parkway on an overcast April afternoon. The breeze was cool but the beautiful tones in the rocks and the full waterfall were the perfect spot to photograph this collection.
The StoneCutter Collection was inspired by the cool, grey tones found in rocks and stones, combined with sharp angular design patterns. The collection includes Navette, Briolette, Trilliant and Asscher.
The Navette socks have a three-color pattern inspired by handwoven textiles from Central America. They are knit with Quince & Co’s Finch yarn, which is incredibly durable and comes in a wide range of colors.
The Briolette tunic is an A-line tunic with a diagonal cable pattern across the chest. It’s knit with Knit One Crochet Too’s Batiste yarn which has wonderful lightness and drape, as well as soft halo.
The Trilliant shawl is a triangular shawl with a mix of lace patterns. A small diamond pattern repeats multiple times to make up the body of the shawl while the upper edge features a large, singular diamond pattern. Knit with Yarn On The House’s Little Brother yarn it is soft and lightweight, making it perfect to layer in all seasons.
The Asscher cardigan is a short sleeve, open cardigan with top-down raglan shaping. It features an angular eyelet lace pattern on the back and an eyelet rib around the collar. Knit with Green Mountain Spinnery’s Cotton Comfort yarn, it has great texture and creates a fabric that can be worn year round.
The entire collection is now live on Ravelry where you can see more photos and get more details about each of these designs.
