Seeing clothes on a model and then seeing them on yourself can be a stark difference. My model/friend for many of my latest designs is of that 1% body type – tall, slender, can wear anything she wants and looks amazing. Myself? Not so much, a little shorter than average, lady-curves, short torso, all things you have to look out for when knitting for yourself.
Today I wanted to share pictures of how I styled the Dropped Stitch Pullover when I wear it out and about. I’m hoping to start this as a regular thing – knits in the world – and I’d love it if you joined me! I really enjoy seeing the practical uses of knitwear, and I happen to be a little afraid of wearing my actual garments (another post on this in the future) so this might just push me out of my comfort zone and into my knits.
On one of my many travels, I wore the sweater with a pair of dark skinny jeans and little booties.
And I wore it on Sunday at Rhinebeck with jeans, my Sunny Grey Skies Shawlette and a hair scarf (which are quickly becoming my favorite things ever).
How do you wear your handknits?
