Twist Style Friday: Lovat

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.


 

 

Friday! It has arrived! You know how on vacation sometimes, it's hard to remember what day it is, because you don't have the same kinds of structured obligations as you do most of the time? Welcome to my all the time life now. Not that I'm on vacation, but the Monday-to-Friday workweek (which only ever had a loose hold on me really) no longer governs my time! I made the set of outfits below between 1 and 3am last night, and am working most of this weekend. I led a workshop on Wednesday night that ended at 11. I am routine-less, and fashion fans, it is impacting my knitting.

 

I have a serious case of startitis. I am in the midst of four different pairs of socks, two blankets, a sweater, two shawls, and a pair of legwarmers, and those are just the projects i am *actively* working on!! I have several others that are napping in a basket and may or may not ever rouse from their slumber. What prince will kiss them? I do not know.

 

So I won't be starting a Lovat today, because I am NOT ALLOWED TO (I am already knitting two patterns from the most recent Twist), but gosh is it ever pretty.

I love how all the elements narrow at the waist. The taper of the buttonbands and the ribs at the waist all make the single closure a nice, geometric focal point. If hourglass is an appealing shape for you- those cables create wonderful lines.

Check out Kate's mockups of Lovat in some other colors, and the outfits below for some more inspiration, and then go start yours (so I can live vicariously through you)!
