Sep 11, 2013 NEW PATTERN: Empire State When it comes to Knitty.com all knitters get excited when a new issue is released. Today Knitty, Deep Fall 2013 was released and what made this extra exciting for me is that I have my first ever FREE Knitty pattern in this issue! With the debut of my Empire State design I'm SO excited to now be a part of the Knitty pattern collection! True to my graphic design aesthetic, I've taken my original graphics and translated them into a fun, bold, colorwork design. Inspiration for this design came from the stylized shapes and strong symmetry of the art deco movement. The bold lines of my version of the iconic Empire State with its rhythmic repeats invokes the jazz influenced feel of the era. My Empire State pattern comes with instructions for either an Infinity Scarf or a standard Cowl. This knit is not only a stylish statement accessory to add to your wardrobe but also a functional piece to keep you warm in the cooler months. Using The Plucky Knitter's, Traveler Aran as your muse, you can't go wrong with beautiful neutrals or ziggy brights. Plucky's Traveler Aran knits up beautifully in this design and Plucky's beautiful hand-dyed colors really make the graphics sing! * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Knitty FREE Pattern Link: FOUND HERERavelry Project Page: FOUND HEREPhotography By: Jill Zielinski DesignsModeling by: Brandy Meyers (Infinity Scarf) and Dani Cianek (Cowl) Special thanks to Herter Music Center in downtown Bay City, MI for letting us use your location and instruments for our shoot.
