Sweater Weather: Gothic

June 09, 2018

It really needed it's own blog post, this new yarn from Outlaw is so lush and oozing with inspiration. 


Etranger by Rie Vive has classic Japanese styling, which would be complemented beautifully by the heathered tones of Outlaw Bohemia Gothic. You'd probably get a smidge more drape than the pictured project, but I think that would help the fabric movement as you go about your day. 

It would made for an utterly fantastic Willard fair isle pullover - you could mix and match with Bohemia Worsted and Muse colours for even more options. 

For a bit of cable and texture lushness, there's Hannah Fettig's West End Cardigan. Featured in the wonderful book Texture, which we also have on the shelf at the moment!

If you fancy a big, warm, polwarth alpaca and possum hug this winter, Larch by Pam Allen fits the bill perfectly. I can just imagine walking around in the bitter Wellington wind and still feel as snug as a bug in this one.

Carrie Bostick Hodge's Forest Cardigan would pair wonderfully with jeans, a long sleeve tee and Bohemia Gothic. Simple enough for the most part, with the cables enough to keep the knitting interesting. 

Finally, if you were one of the many people who purchased issue 4 of Laine from us (thank you!), Gothic would translate beautifully into Morginn. The combination of polwarth, alpaca and possum plus fisherman's rib will make for the most squishy, cosy and cuddly cardigan I can think of. 

I'm off to daydream and swatch and drool over the colours just a bit more...

Zowie! Those colors are gorgeous. I can just see them leaping about and chasing each other around a beautiful colorwork sweater.
