Interweave Knits Spring 2019: A Review

Interweave Knits has released its Spring 2019 issue. Let's have a look at it, shall we?

Hydrangea Cardigan. Excellent shaping and stitchwork.

Gardenia Stole. Such beautiful lacework.

Iris Cowl. Gorgeous lacework.

Cattleya Pullover. After the past three designs, arriving at this one feels like being dropped from a great height. The bagginess isn't helping the variegated yarn, and the variegated yarn isn't helping the bagginess.

Geranium Shawl. A lovely lace shawl.

Rose Bush Pullover. Very attractive, wearable piece.

Celosia Pullover. Such a delicately pretty look.

Begonia Pullover. Very much like this one, which the designer has somehow managed to give both a contemporary vibe and a classic feel.

Eucalyptus Pullover. An attractive, wearable piece.

Horehound Henley. This henley with its contrast colour ribbing is simple but not boring, which is a good balance to strike. One could also have some fun with planning the colour combination for this one.

Verbena Cardigan. Not bad. I'm not so sold on the extra-wide button and button hole bands, or the sit of the collar, but the texture is attractive.

Thyme Hat. Classic knit cap.

Rock Salt Gansey. With its attractive bodice and gracefully shaped neckline, this is a pleasing new take on the traditional gansey.

Fennel Cardigan. Classic cabled cardigan.

Buds Pullover. Classic turtleneck with some interesting texture.

Sunchokes Pullover. Very handsome piece. I like the combination of the classic cables with the contemporary-style drawstring fennelneck.
