Twist Style Friday: Cappadocia

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.


 

 

Happy Friday fashion fans!!

 

Those of you south of the border are heading into a long weekend, which might just be a fantastic time to start a brand new knitting project. That is, unless you're cooking for a zillion of your favorite folks. I hope that however you are spending your time, you get to see some of your nears and dears, and hopefully get a few stitches in.

 

I went on a bit of a destashing spree this week. I frogged a bunch of projects I haven't touched in ages, and swapped a bunch of yarn I didn't have big dreams for. In exchange I got some very ethical coffee, postage stamps, some stunning yarn I *do* have big dreams for, and some nail decals shaped like tiny tiny snacks. I also frogged a hat I have already ripped and reknitted three times. I think I finally know how to make it perfect, and I'm pretty impressed that the yarn still looks kind of great. 

 

Here is something else that looks kind of great (by which I mean super great, actually).

Cappadocia has a simple shape and is the perfect layering piece for unpredictable weather. I love the way the simple lace makes the ribs ripple slightly. The pattern looks a bit like staggered blossoms on a trellis.

In a yarn like this one, with a generous shot of silk, you might not even mind if you make some mistakes and have to knit it again and again.

 

Wear it like a blazer, over a crisp collared shirt and slim pants, over a flowy dress, or with some serious glitter.

How will you wear Cappadocia? I hope it's with sparklepants!
