Urban Texture

Having the opportunity to design a collection for Knit Picks was beyond awesome - what an amazing team and company they are! 

With the concept of cool, fresh, and slightly edgy, Urban Texture wraps cables, form, composition, and lace into a stunning six piece collection. You'll find four garments, each with an alluring impact and suited for a variety of body types, perfect for dressing up or dressing down in addition to two accessories that are ideal layering to keep you warm.

Beginning with a pullover that is sleek and urbane, Vidalia is just right for a night out in the city, while the Charlotte Jacket takes a more cozy and comfortable approach with rich textures and cables. The Salient Vest is wonderfully simple while exploring lace and texture, all while providing infinite layering possibilities. Worked in two easy pieces, Baxley presents a chic batwing silhouette paired with a deep v-neck and subtle texture. The Oakes Scarf and Shiloh Cowl enhance the entire collection to transition from season to season.
Sophisticated and trendy, the Urban Texture collection will thrill knitters of every level with luxe and impressive results. 
What I especially love is the Knit Picks Kit Builder that automatically selects the quantity of yarn based on the size you input! The patterns are available individually for $4.99, the hard copy of the booklet is $8.99, and the ebooklet is $9.99. An excellent deal, if I may say so myself. 
But, wouldn't you know it? I happen to have TWO copies of the booklet right here on my desk itching to be given away! YeeHAW! All you have to do is leave a comment on THIS post telling me which pattern is your favorite and I'll pick two winners on the 19th of April (Friday).  Be sure to click the "+1" button on the Rafflecopter box below and then click "I commented" - this way I can contact you (ONLY if you've won).
