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.


 

 

I'm writing to you, fashion fans, from my sweetheart's couch in Ottawa, with a huge jar of throat-coat tea and a box of tissues close by, because I finally got the cold that's been going around to everyone I know over the last few weeks. The wild temperature fluctuations ("wintermission") have really been wreaking havoc on everyone's immune systems. If you too, have been stricken with the dreaded winter lurgy, I hope you feel well enough to put your (sock and slipper clad) feet up, snuggle into some blankets, put on something innocuous, and get into your knitting. 

 

Maybe you want to make a pretty-as-heck cardigan for the cutest winter layering, or for transitional seasons. Like this one, perhaps?

I love Undercut's bracelet-length sleeves, the allover-lace back, and did you know that this yarn  is an absolutely scrumptious blend of merino, silk, and caaaaaaaashmere??? Delicious.

Folks on Instagram this week have been sharing their #myfirsthandknitsweater, and it's made me think about how I used to only knit sweaters with worsted or chunky yarns, because I couldn't imagine the patience required to make a whole sweater out of fingering weight yarn. Audrey was my turning point, and since then, I have hardly made a sweater that *wasn't* fingering. I think they're perfect. 

 

I know I often advocate for wearing brights with neutrals, and I do think that those two color styles are really well-matched, but this grey weather has me jonesing for every bright color and every tropical fruit. 

How will you wear Undercut
