In like a lion, out like a lamb……….and don’t we all vote for the latter this month? If you are still comfortably settled in a warm and cosy state of ‘hiberknitting’ stay there, but just remember to peek out every now and then to catch a glimpse of the latest designs for spring. Inspiring, stylish and always refreshing, Mirasol previews two new laceweight yarns, Sulka Legato, and Nuna Fina complimented by a collection of contemporary designs for women.
Catch a breath of fresh air with a few of these styles-
Light and lofty, Sulka Legato is a creamy blend of merino, alpaca and silk, dyed to perfection in sixteen medium tones- pearl, beige, taupe, camel, chocolate, charcoal, sage, slate, lilac, aqua, rust, moss, purple, teal, plum and denim.
Lacy Tee- The trendsetting look of the season is roomy and relaxed. This design is completely reversible, and builds on a simple square framework with minimal shaping, comfortably capped off with wide cuffs for sleeves. Teal (shown above).
Seed Stitch Cardigan- Quiet and demure, this design replaces the winter weary suit jacket and showcases the whispery-soft nature of the yarn, Sulka Legato, with a clean silhouette and scaled-down texture. Denim (shown above).
Sleek and shimmery, Nuna Fina lets the light shine in. This fingering weight yarn is a harmonious blend of merino, silk and bamboo available in high mileage skeins of three hundred metres. Look for all sixteen shades- snowflakes, pitchblack, ruby, darkwoods, midnight, deepwater, amethyst, royalty, foggy, beaverdam, mossed over, tandoori, toasted walnut, bluejay, emerald city, and lava stone.
Lace Border Cardigan- For limitless appeal, this stunning v-neck style can cross the great divide from slacks to dresses. The delicate lace borders are worked sideways, with the body worked seamlessly in one piece. Hook and eye closures finish off the look. Mossed Over (shown above).
Sleeveless Turtleneck Tunic- Set the mood for modern sophistication with this design, well-constructed with a-line shaping, and no seams, the bodice is worked in double strand for extra coverage. Ruby (shown above).
Vintage Lace Tee- Practical and lightweight, this modest little tee is jazzed up a notch with a lovely seashell lace repeat along the bottom edge. Amethyst (shown above).
Oversized Poncho Top- A flattering style for all ages, this design is knit from side to side in two easy pieces with maximum drape. The open lacework provides cool comfort and plenty of air circulation on hot days. This popular longer length makes it ideal to wear over leggings or capris. Foggy (shown above).
