NEW PROJECTS Quince & Co Kestrel 2021

Quince & Co Kestrel is part of our Treat Yourself to Something Nice Sale, on to June 19th!

Konti

Simple yet striking, Konti’s zig-zagging lace pattern calls to mind rippling currents in a swift-moving stream. Worked seamlessly from the top down, this pullover’s exceptionally clean construction and minimal finishing allow the lace motif and Quince & Co Kestrel’s fluid drape to take centre stage. Shown here in colourway Lira, a warm and neutral earth tone, we think Konti would look equally stunning in a bright jewel tone like Rosehip or Bordeaux.

Construction

Sweater is worked from the top down, worked flat through the neckline and upper body shaping, then worked in the round for the lower body. Sleeves are picked up around the armholes, shaped with German short rows, and worked in the round.

Holderness

Cassie LaFollette’s Holderness elevates a simple summer tank into a work of art! Knit in the round from the bottom up, Holderness begins with a deep, folded hem and features a tidy i-cord bind off at the underarms and neckline. Easy-to-work cables create charming braided straps for a delicate and polished finish. Holderness’s thoughtful construction combined with Kestrel’s fluid drape create a timeless piece that is breezy and effortless to wear. You’ll reach for this tank again and again.

Construction

Tank is worked in the round from the bottom up, then separated at the underarms. The body includes a folded hem. Underarms and neckline are shaped by a staggered i-cord bind off. The braided straps are achieved using simple 2-over-2 cables.
