Twist Style Friday: Sissonne

Every Friday we feature one of the garments from the magazine in a post about styling. We suggest different ways to wear the garment in question using mock-ups from Polyvore. We encourage readers to tell us what they think about these outfits via our Facebook page or Twitter, and if folks want to make their own outfits, please tweet them at us with the hashtag #twiststyle. You can find all of the Style Friday posts here.


 

It's Friday!

 

I had to bust out my fingerless gloves last night, some volunteers I work with were hosting a walking tour of neighborhood history, so we were a group of weirdos walking around in the cold night air for a few hours. I think after being alive for close to 32 years, I may have finally figured out how to dress warmly, so with my assorted woolens, I was fine. In some ways I have always been old for my age; tonight I was everyone's granny. I brought a couple of extra pairs of gloves in case someone was underdressed. They came in handy (see what I did there?).

 

Sweater season is totally here, in Toronto anyways. I'm sort of thrilled about it. I am thinking about pulling my Ravenscrag WIP out of hibernation so I can actually wear it this season! If you don't already have a sweater on the needles (ok ok, even if you do...), consider this delightful prospect.

 

 

collar and yoke detail

 

 

Sissonne is an asymmetrical cabled cardigan with a pretty curved hem and a cozy folded collar. The cables are lush but also minimal, and this stunning yarn is an excellent combo of workhorse polwarth wool and a sprinkle of silk.

That mitered edge on the buttonbands is the kind of tiny detail that my knitter brain just LOVES. So tidy, so precise.

 

 

backsleeve detail

 

 

I think the collar makes this a statement piece no matter what else you're wearing, so you decide if it's the only bold piece you want to wear, or if bold on bold is more your style. The color combo of this stunning pale ocean with cool grey and pinky red was really talking to me, so I did some variations on that as a theme.
