This 5 pattern collection inspired by Alexis’s love of pottery is just straight up on point – it has Alexis written all over it! The complicated and brilliant patterns with unusual construction are all extremely wearable. As a designer I wish I would have thought of it, and as a knitter I want to cast everything on to try it out!
Definitely my favorite pattern from the collection is Tiber Cardigan (you aren’t surprised are you?!). That colorwork is INSANE, and look at those shoulders! How in the world is that done?! I’m crazy in love.
And of course the back is killer. It’s so mesmerizing! I doubly fell in love with it after reading Alexis’s blog post about her process and inspiration having just been in Italy myself.
If the Tiber Cardigan is a little too much for you to dive in to, I’m also really loving the Brenta Hat and Dolo Mitts – I just love how they go together but not really. Pared here like Alexis is modeling they look so cool – a ‘set’ you could just live in for fall.
I love the silhouette of the Mezzo Cardigan and the way the colors are placed – something you could lounge in or add instant style to any casual outfit.
And last but not least Arno Pullover, a cozy pullover with insanely flattering shoulder detail and color placement.
Alexis is one of my absolute favorite designers and Speckle and Stone is a killer collection. I can’t wait to watch the projects pop up on ravelry and hopefully cast one of these lovely designs on soon!
