Last week one of my local yarn stores, La Casita, hosted the Vogue Knitting Summer 2016 trunk show. Trisha Malcolm brought the projects featured in the magazine.
I love going to these events. The garments are there for you to look at and try on. Usually the item is knit in the smallest size - that means I get to try on accessories more than garments. All the pieces featured in the magazine went to Vogue Knitting Live in Pasadena last weekend and some of them didn't make it back in time for this event. Out of the items I saw these three were my favorites:
Drop Stitch column design by Wei Wilkins (page 37). We all though that if you made this tank top longer it would be a great pool or beach coverup.
Graphic patterns pullover by Katharine Hunt (page 59). It's knit in a mercerized cotton and looked terrific.
Deconstructed cable tunic by Pat Olski (page 54 ). The construction of this piece looks intriguing.
During the event I posted a couple of videos of the trunk show on Instagram and Periscope. I highly recommend going to a Vogue Knitting trunk show or runway show. Not only do you see how the garments drapes, flow, and "act", Trisha discusses how designs and garments are developed.
Do you have a favorite design from this issue?
