The “Winter Blues” issue of Amirisu is out and it’s easily one of my favorite issues, not least because of the dark-yoked sweater in there. In fact, I’m obsessed with the idea of knitting all three of these pieces, each of which employs colorwork in an intriguing way:
TOP: Skaftafell by Beatrice Perron Dahlen is an updated lopapeysa with simplified colorwork at the yoke
BOTTOM LEFT: Tenchi by Olga Buraya-Kefelian is a cowl worked in modified two-color brioche
BOTTOM RIGHT: Jokull by Keiko Kikuno is a large wrap that combines three ideas — ombré, colorwork and houndstooth — and somehow winds up being mesmerizingly spare instead of a big mess
I also really love the art direction and styling here — all so good. Of course, I have a stack of them for you at Fringe Supply Co, but having now seen the issue in person, I think I should have ordered more!

Totally agree, this issue is stunning. I love this wrap too.
I think the Winter Blues would make a great sweater dress!
That sweater is so awesome.
That Jokull is amazing!

I really wish there were some kind of pause button on amazing patterns; it’s hard enough to get done what I’ve been planning for awhile without something new tempting me. Thankfully my knitting & making don’t mind my wandering eye…
THAT sweater with THAT skirt with THOSE boots! 😍
