Twist Style Fridays: Kielo

Published on Friday, 08 April 2016 09:17

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! While you are reading this, I am probably in a car with some lovely humans, on my way to Ottawa for the weekend. I'm staying with my (first? only?) Twitter friend! Adventure!

 

We have been looking at shawls lately on Style Friday, and today is no exception! I just read over the construction notes for Kielo, and got *really* excited. The crescent is made by knitting the lace section first, and then the plain shawl body at the end! I love things that are made like this, where the pace of the project starts slow and speeds up! For me, that helps prevent project fatigue.

That said, I am super not allowed to start any more projects until I finish some or frog some. Commitment! You, however, are not subject to my self-imposed and highly arbitrary rules. You can do whatever you want. You can make the crescent *and* the rectangle if you want to. You can cast on for both at the same time if you really want to throw caution to the wind. YOLO is what the kids are saying these days, right?

You all know how to wear a scarf or shawl. I have no real wisdom to share; just a serious love of patterns and slightly odd shoes. Go forth and be fabulous in your very own Kielo!

 

Here are some ideas of things to wear with the crescent:

And here are some with the stole (was I dressing Carrie Bradshaw? Maybe just a little).

How will you wear Keilo?
