Cecelia Campochiaro’s Sequence Knitting classes in September really inspired me. The concept is deceivingly simple – knitting only 1 row patterns. But when you think of all the 1 row patterns you can create, the number of stitches you can repeat them over, how to increase them and decrease them, and how to incorporate color – the possibilities are endless. And exciting!
For my first foray, I chose Lana Vida Hannah, a perennial favorite. Made with baby alpaca, fine merino, and cashmere, it is a joy to knit. I chose two shades – cobalt and lake. First they’re used to create stripes, then cobalt is used alone to the end. The result is a pleated effect created by the stitch pattern and a fun play of color.
With several color pairings to choose from, Neve makes it easy to dress up your favorite coat and to stay warm. Here are a few of our favorites.
