Magknits Online Knitting Magazine

Tuesday, August 7th, 2007

I enjoy the online magazine called MagKnits. Diana sent me a link to their current issue (she sent a sock pattern link) and I went looking at the rest of the patterns. I always look at the photos first, then go back and read other things that take more time.

They have a pattern this time called Summer Sky. It’s a very short extra-cropped sweater that is almost a capelet except it has sleeves. It is knit in summer-weight/fiber yarn (linen/acrylic fingering-weight yarn, really pretty and drapey) which is sort of out of my realm, but the overall shape is very nice and they do suggest that it might be nice in wool (with longer sleeves) for cooler weather.

What delights me most, though, is that it has a really similar collar shape and front opening to my Perfect Hug capelet (photo posted yesterday). I’m not the only one liking the idea of an inverted-V shaped front opening for a little cover-up. It’s nice to know I’m not working totally in a vacuum.
