Throwback Thursday: Novak

Yesterday some of my colleagues went to have an offsite meeting at a restaurant near our office, and we decided to meet inside rather than on the patio because it was kind of chilly. 

 

This time of year my knitting impulse is going strong. I want to be ready when the cold weather gets here. This week's #throwbackthursday takes us to Fall 2009, our first anniversary issue. Say hi to Novak

She's got a slight A-line shape, and herringbone details on the dramatic collar and cuffs. Made in squishy plied worsted merino, this is also a speedy little sweater to make. I love a three quarter sleeve- you can wear long gloves and look seriously cool, and not overheat when you go inside.

The retro shape was inspired by 50s film star Kim Novak. Check out the sample on the designer, Claire Montgomerie.

This 50s style is a classic in any era, and I know I would love to have a Novak to keep me warm when the snow flies.
