“The one accessory you absolutely need this season? The statement scarf. (Christina Behnke)” Yes, Christina, yes. This is an intelligent and lovely design. Love the simple cables running along the scarf. Do you see the increases on the right side of the picture? They are forming a hood, so your ears will stay away from the chilly winds, soon to come! And a great colourway from Kolláge Yarns’ Happiness Worsted.
Finished length 65½”/166,5 cm.
I do love this design. Great cables on this cropped pullover. It is knitted in Berroco’s Elements. A piece you will wear every day to many occasions.
Knitable in 4 sizes from 34½” (87,5cm) to 46½” (118cm).
Lovely cables on this cardigan. I love this big buttons and the two coloured front-bands and hems on the sleeves. although they look a little bit roomy. It is worked in Cascade’s chainette Cloud. Interesting detail: “The sleeves are picked up from the armholes and worked down. (Christina Behnke)” So you may alter the wide of the sleeves easily.
Knitable in 4 sizes from 38½” (97,5cm) to 47½” (120,5cm) bust buttoned.
Another lovely straight design, colour and cables are great, especially the XO’s. Even the length of the sleeves do not bother me in this design. It is knitted using Zara from Filatura Di Crosa/Tahki⋅Stacy Charles.
Knitable in 4 sizes from 34″ (86cm) to 44″ (111,5cm).
Hm, I’m not sure. I do love everything on this coat, really. The cables, the interesting heart-shaped neck-opening, the vents on the lower hem. The solution for the buttonhole-band. Hope it is a success. It is knitted in Simpliworsted from HiKoo/Skacel Collection.
Knitable in 4 sizes from 34″ (86cm) to 44″ (111,5cm).
Also nice wearable idea. This vest with the matching arm warmers. Lovely. Knitted in Rialto DK from Debbie Bliss/KFI.
Vest is knitable in 5 sizes from 34″ (86,5cm) to 50″ (127cm).
Circumference of the arm warmers: 7″/18cm.
I do not think this is a flattering design. The armholes are to deep, the sleeves to short, the funnel-neck looks like, uups, I run out of yarn. But maybe the shown garment is simply to big for the model, maybe. Knitted using Bergère de France’s velvety Pur Mérinos Français.
Knitable in 4 sizes from 39″ (99 cm) to 43″ (109cm).
This is a great design. I love the idea of this woven cables. Aren’t they looking great! This design is a stunner! Knit it in DK Merino Superwash from Plymout Yarn Co.
Knitable in 4 sizes from 34″ (86,5cm) to 57″ (144,5cm).
A big carf meets a big celtic cable, great, but I would have knitted it not in a variegated yarn. Although the colour is lovely the cable detail vanishes. Use a solid shade or a tonal striped yarn for this design. Shown here in Brown Sheep Company’s Lanaloft Bulky.
Finished measurements 8 x 80″/20,5 x 203cm.
This cropped pullover is really fashionable. I do love this colour of Zealana’s Air Marle and I do love the cables and the seed stitch detail on the sleeves. The big cowl is sensational, isn’t it? This garment is smartly designed to knit it in one piece and to be joined at the shoulder seams using a 3-needle bind off. The sleeve bands are knitted separately and sewn on. The stitches for the cowl are picked up along the neck edge.
Knitable in 4 sizes from 34″ (86,5cm) to 46″ (117cm).
7th Avenue Style
Dolman-shaped pullovers are en vogue again. Knitted from sleeve to sleeve, divided for the neck opening using minimal shaping. I do like this simple, yet stunning and wearable design stitched in Sprout from Classic Elite Yarns.
Knitable in 5 sizes from 39″ (99cm) to 55″ (139,5cm).
“Decreases at the crown follow the lines of the main shifting rib chevron pattern, which flows continuously from the uneven rib sequence at the border. (Christina Behnke)” Do you see what Christina is describing? A great design knit this beanie shown here in Jade Sapphire Exotic Fibres’ luscious Mongolian Cashmere 6-Ply to keep your ears warm.
This is a must have this season! I love this standard fitting meshy sweater and it’s matching scarf in simple rib. It looks so comfy and warm. It is knitted in Prism’s Merino Mia and kid mohair Gossamer held together.
Knitable in 4 sizes from 37″ (94cm) to 46½” (118cm).
For her voluminous cowl, Jacqueline van Dillen goes big on texture: Wool Clasica from Manos del Uruguay/Fairmount Fibres lends a soft sculptural quality to nubby blackberry stitch. Worked in a minty four-colour block sequence, the cowl is knit in a long strip that’s joined at the ends in finishing.
Also a must have. A big big cowl. This one is knitted using Wool Clasica from Manos del Uruguay/Fairmount Fibres. I do love the pattern and the colours.
I’m not quite a fan of this piece. I do not like this elongated back hem. Although if you skip this detail it may be lovely. I like the dramatic shape of the collar and the simplicity of the pure stockinette stitch accompanied by the rib detail. Clever is also the button closure on the left-side seam. Shown here in Terra from The Fibre Company/Kelbourne Woolens.
Knitable in 5 sizes from 38″ (96,5cm) to 54″ (137cm).
Well what to say to this poncho? I’m not impressed definitely, that’s all. It is knitted in Koigu Wool Designs’ Bulky.
Back length 26″/66cm.
This is great design. I love love love this capelet. The lace pattern is great, the colour is lovely. The drawstring detail adds endless possibilities wearing this piece. It is knitted using Artyarns’ Supermerino.
Knitable in 5 sizes from 38″ (96,5cm) to 54¾” (139cm) circumference measured laying flat.
A mix of five different qualities of Trendsetter Yarns (Merino 6, Kid Seta, Aura, Dune and La Furla) an intelligent placing of the colours, nice fitting sleeves and a standard fitting shape are used to make this pullover, but nevertheless the result is BORING!
Knitable in 3 sizes from 33″ (83,5cm) to 39″ (99cm).
A simple long cardigan, knitted on big needles using Rowan’s Tumble. Nice to see a pocket detail and set-in sleeves instead of drop shoulders.
Knitable in 5 sizes from 40″ (101,5cm) to 56″ (142cm) bust closed.
Well a lovely idea reflecting the coloured stripes on the body with textured stripes on the sleeves of this pullover. But I do not like it. The colour stripes are dangerously placed and the shawl collar also looks old-fashioned.
But the shawl looks great!
The pullover is knitted using Cascade Yarns’ 220 Superwash Aran the shawl uses matching colours of Cascade’s 220 Superwash.
Pullover knitable in 4 sizes from 35″ (89cm) to 44½” (113cm),
Finished measurements of the shawl 15½ x 82″/39,5 x 208cm.
I love this cardigan not only for its zipper closure. The simplicity of stockinette stitch is highlighted by embroidered broad front bands. Great design, knitted using Imperial Yarn’s Erin Worsted.
Knitable in 5 sizes from 36″ (91,5cm) to 51″ (129,5cm).
This is a colourful lovely design using fair-isle technique. But wait, do you see the purl stitches? They are added depth and interest to the pattern used on front and back. The sleeves are knitted in a stripe sequence. A lovely neck opening completes this stunning design. It is stitched in Rowan’s Alpaca Colour with Kid Classic.
Knitable in 5 sizes from 38″ (96,5cm) to 55″ (139,5cm).
Not an everyday garment, but it is so lovely. Eyelet patterns and embroidery creates a stunning effect on the front. I like it. You will love it. It is worked using Lorna’s Laces’ tonal Shepherd Worsted.
Knitable in 5 sizes from 34″ (86,5cm) to 50″ (127cm).
Stranded colourwork meets faux_fur. It is young, fresh and brings back the swinging ’60s. A great design in lovely colours.
Knitable in 3 sizes from 39″ (99cm) to 53″ (134,5cm) bust closed.
Also a wearable design with a lovely pattern on front and back. Essential pockets are also present, what a luck. Knit this coat shown here in Blue Sky Alpacas’ Worsted Hand Dyes.
Knitable in 4 sizes from 39″ (99cm) to 51″ (129,5cm)
This could also be an essential. This design is truly versatile and the patterns are interesting. I love it. Also do I love the construction of this garment, it is worked flat in one piece! It is stitched in Knit one, Crochet Too’s Meadow Silk.
Knitable in 4 sizes from 35″ (89cm) to 47″ (119,5cm).
5 thoughts on “VOGUEknitting Fall 2014”
I may never knit anything from Vogue Knitting, but I love the inspiration. Eileen Fisher? And knitted coats? Yeah, baby…you can tell I grew up in the late ’70s and early ’80s!
Yes, Vogue Knitting is to inspire yourself. Not all of the designs are really the stuff someone would wear, I agree.
Just for those interested, there is KAL getting started in Ravelry for the #8 (Vogue Knitting group).
These woven panels are amazing. I also love the Bay combo (#20), the intarsia (#18) and the tunic (#23). Too many things to love in VK, too little time to knit.
Thank you Miss Agnes, thats really interesting to know!
Another breathtaker by the lovely Marie Wallin – Wannit!
