Twist Collective September 2018: A Review

Today we're going to have a look at Twist Collective's September 2018 issue.

Maidstone. A classic wearable piece with some appealing stitchwork.

Cedar Hill. These open-front pieces are always a challenge because the front really needs to sit well... and this one doesn't.

Passerine. Oooh, pretty. I'm always a sucker for this sort of tracery design, especially when it involves birds and branches. There's something so charming about the effect.

Caspia. An attractively classic piece.

Parallax. I like the contemporary, graphic vibe of this scarf.

Dancing Meadow. So, so pretty.

Acacia. I like the concept of this one, and the stitchwork is perfect, but I would neaten up the fit a touch and nix the mullet hem.

Ostraka. This one's a little rough-looking for my liking, and I think it also needs a more interesting yarn.

Glenevin. I like this kind of pullover: it's simple and classic enough to go with everything, and yet has enough interest in its stitchwork and details that it will never look boring or unpolished.

Peryton. Fantastic stitchwork and shaping in this one.
