Remember all those little bits and pieces of designs that were so sooper seekrit that I couldn’t talk about them for months? And months…and months….
All I could do was share tiny, teasing glimpses into the yarns, colors or textures but never tell the whole story? (or even half the story?)
Now I can talk about them!
The Vagabond’s Closet is a 5 piece collection that features knit articles and accessories that, whether worn together or separately, are sure to complement your nomadic lifestyle. (Click through on the links or pictures to learn more about the design and see more pretty pictures!)
Showing off a variety of Malabrigo’s absolutely gorgeous yarns, the assortment ranges in yarn weights, colors used, techniques explored and difficulty levels. Among the items you’ll find the Wayfaring Vest:
A circle vest that starts from the center of the back and is worked out with a stranded colorwork star motif and a combination of simple colorwork and textural interest.
The Transient Tunic:
The tunic is modifiable in length and the fabric has a generous amount of give so any of the 4 sizes should fit most adult women! The geometric detail in the waistband is where it’s all started, with stitches picked up for the top and skirt later.
The Tattered So Chic Mitts:
A simple shape and texture with visually interesting dropped stitch details – each mitt has a different make-up so even though it seems like you’re knitting plain stockinette the end results are stunning! The length allows the mitts to run all the way from your knuckles to your upper arms, but they look just as chic slouched down below your elbows.
The Nomadic Nights Slouch:
With chunky yarn, this slouch is a super quick knit. The colorwork and textural interest make it fun to work on and the interesting construction and shape make it totally unique!
and the Wrapping Up The Journey Skirt:
A one-size fits most, wrap-style skirt, this one is elevated with the gorgeous color combinations found only in Malabrigo’s yarns. Make it longer by knitting the panels longer, adding more panels or colors; wear it over jeans, leggings or bare legs – it’s perfect for all seasons!
The collection can be purchased as an ebook for a discounted price or as individual patterns.
Where do your knitting and traveling dreams take you? Mine take me around the world, visiting every place I haven’t yet seen and meeting all the new people along the way (sadly, these dreams are not supported by my bank account…).
