New Favorites: A bit of mesh

New Favorites: A bit of mesh

I’m aware that it’s still snowing in some parts of the US, but it’s been spring here for 3 or 4 months and I know everyone else is ready for fewer layers and lighter clothes. This “winter” has actually been warmer than our “summer” typically is, so I have no idea what we’re in for this year. But with global weather no longer following traditional patterns, I’m into the idea of flex-weather sweaters such as these little mesh-patterned beauties. Above is the Zigzag Mesh Pullover by Carolyn Noyes for the new issue of Knit.Wear. I know: Purple chevrons, what is up? But I’d prefer this one in a neutral. Below is the Perkins Cove Pullover by Pam Allen, which is the same basic idea as that drop-stitch sweater of Iz’s that Meg made me a sleeveless version of, and that many of you have been clamoring for a pattern for! Here it’s done raglan-style in a finer gauge, in linen, and it is lovely lovely lovely.

  1. Karen, thanks for these great photos! Other promotion of these new patterns have not done justice to the beauty of these fabircs … yours deserves kudos for helping sell these stunning new spring designs, for which I had been on the fence while deciding to purchase the publications…I just jumped on the “buy side!” Again, thanks, Carolyn in Macon ;-)

  2. You know, I was just out shopping last weekend and took an embarrassing number of photos with my phone of interesting mesh patterns in knit garments I saw. I normally don’t do that. :) Mesh must be on everyone’s brain!

  3. I am in for at least 3 of those linen patterns from Quince! And that purple one is divine~I’m with you on the neutral~but would love to get it on my needles! Maybe I like some “summer” knitting after all :)

  4. I’m madly obsessed with the diamond funnel neck sweater from that issue. It’s gorgeous enough to make me want to finally tackle a sweater for myself!

  5. The Zigzag Mess Pullover in that exact colour! I’m normally a neutrals person, except for good purples. That’s the only real colour in my wardrobe, and I love them.

  6. Have to agree! I bought the Perkins Cove pattern the minute the Quince email hit my inbox.

  7. looking forward to seeing the new knit.wear. magazine. and really want to try quince’s linen, i love the new patterns for it. and loved the title of your last post, brilliant!

    • Lori, have you knitted with linen before? I have myself convinced I don’t like linen sweaters (having had past ones twist on me) but have never had a handmade one, nor have I knitted with linen, so I’m super curious about it.

  8. I love, love, love linen! I went and bought some Louet linen from my LYS a few months back, and I’m hoping that will give me a good lesson in how it works, so maybe the Quince will be a real treat.Here, in Northern California, I just wish it would rain a bunch more.

  9. Love both of these patterns but REALLY fell in love with that Zig Zag Pullover. I started it today in a Hemlock colour. Thanks for sharing!
