Friday Favourite 6…

This piece is from the Autumn/Winter ’14 Mui Mui Collection so it’s one of the sweaters from next season’s offerings. We Love the interesting mix of colour, proportion and used of differing size of tension and scale. (We are not even pink people!) The clever and subtle detailing on the cuff and hem rib give the piece a really good balance.

Its great the way the change in scale of knitting and tension does something really interesting to the shape of the garment, so even plain stocking stitch can produce stunning results. So simple and so fab.

Love this! Changes from one stitch pattern to another can often involve tension/gauge issues, and one way to work with this is to work an increase or decrease row to maintain the width of the garment. But you can also choose to use the difference in gauge as a design feature – here the rib pattern pulls in after the stocking stitch and gives a slightly puffed effect at the top of the sleeve which is really pretty. Thanks for showing this image. :)

Exactly, Anni! Cleverly done here, we thought.
