First appearances are everything when it comes to choosing a knitting pattern, starting with the shape, the fit, and the tiny details that distinguish it from all the rest, yet ultimately it is the feel of the yarn that will hold your interest and get you to the finish line. If you are a tactile knitter (aren’t we all?), this brand new quality from Mirasol might spoil you for all the others. Geared towards the minimalist, who appreciates the finest in luxury fibres, Sulka Nina is spun in a swishy blend of merino, silk and alpaca, a classic dk weight arriving in shops now for early fall knitting in a wide array of heathery tones…… and by the way, this stunner of a yarn is an exact replica of Sulka, only scaled down to offer the best of both worlds.
Here is a peek at our line up of designs for Fall/Winter 2014 to knit in Sulka Nina-
If it ain’t got that swing………..and in this case its the silky drape of Sulka Nina that makes it the ideal choice for this dressy cropped cardi featuring wide angle fronts that sway with the slightest of movements. Claret (shown above).
You’ve got to accentuate the positive………..clean lines are far from ordinary as this eye-catching chevron hem pullover clearly demonstrates with set-in sleeves and a crew neck to balance the look. Cypress (shown above).
Time after time………. its the classics that stick around and become our constant companions as in this cabled cardigan designed with a soft silhouette and a slimming v neck. Bark (shown above).
Working 9 to 5…………. is a breeze in this slipover vest beautifully textured in an intricate-looking basket weave stitch, a sharp little office cover-up designed to make the shift from early fall into deep winter. Cinnamon (shown above).
Living for the weekend…………. and switching into relaxed gear just doesn’t get any easier with this casual pullover, designed to look fresh and modern with sleeves pushed up to three quarter length and the back hem let out just a notch. Moss stitch borders add a simple finish and a tad more substance to the overall sleek look. Blackberry (shown above).
