Falling into Vogue

Posted: November 2, 2009 in Vogue Knitting Magazine Fall

Take a look at some of Vogue Knitting’s best garments this Fall 2009 issue.

Peplum Cardigan, Nanette Lepore

Peplum Cardigan, Nanette Lepore

In the fashionable cape style of this season, this cardigan is knitted from the neck down, lace stitching with a lot of shaping, using two yarns of an alpaca/fin merino wool/silk blend with a baby kid mohair/polyamide blend.

Leaf Motif Jacket, Melissa LaBarre

Using super chunky yarn wool/alpaca blend, constructed in one piece from the neckband to the waist edge, separating for the armholes and picking up stitches later to put in the sleeves, raglan shaping, and a buttonhole band sewn on at the end, with a simple sew hook and eye closure. Look for more chunky cowls and capes in the upcoming issue Vogue Holiday.

Cropped Jacket, Anne Farnham

Military jacket details never need look too masculine, knit body, sleeves and joined together to make the yoke, a double-breasted front, lovely texture created by a bell pattern stitch and seed stitch, worked in Icelandic wool.

Duo-Tone Cardi, Amanda Crawford

Worked in organic wool, perfect for this season’s peasant and folkish look, and constructed in five pieces (back, two fronts and two sleeves), this cardi’s finishing is quite detailed with added frontbands, pockets and belt, but overall simple stitching in a four row stitch pattern.
