I’m looking forward to some MDK Field Guide No. 14: Refresh show and tell soon. My Twining Wrap grows daily in length, width, and beauty. I hear Kay has hit her Trellis Top groove after a bit of off-road swatching. And entering its third week, Refreshalong is in full, glorious swing.
Our Social Media Maven Cristina Shiffman was all set to join in the fun knitting a Transom Cardigan . . . and then occupational hazard struck in the form of an Instagram post of Carol’s latest design. Brace yourself: Cristina has taken her stash of Nua Sport in Bare Necessities and thrown her lot in with the knitters of Carol’s Guggen KAL.
Guggen was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s Guggenheim Museum in NYc.
Look at all that gorgeous garter stitch. Can you blame her? I can’t. And I can’t resist a little pattern parade of more of Carol’s designs for Nua Sport, so here goes.
I can’t pronounce it, but I love it. Raglans for the win. And the stitch pattern seems like perfect air conditioning.
did someone say “integrated Button band”?
A cleverly constructed, snappy tee.
The striped triangle forms the foundation of this short-row wonder.
Alternating garter stitch and openwork stripes demonstrate Carol’s modern take on lace.
Worked in two directions for maximum wingspan.
Tassels, stripes, and slip-stitch motifs for maximum hip.
Here you go, kay, a little Ballband-esque action for you.
Littlest but not least is this sweet cardi. (Make sure you check out Ravi too.)
If you can take your eyes off the baby, That’s Carol’s Dangle Shawl she’s resting on.
Our resident yarn detective Jillian Moreno said it best: Nua Sport is simply “sublime” and perfect for texture, lace, cables—everything.
I want to knit it all.
