Mira

This oversized top is a quick, easy knit, in soft & comfortable Quince & Co Kestrel (ON SALE NOW). It’s casual and easy to wear, just throw it over a tank or a cami and you’re good to go! Kestrel is machine wash and dryable, very easy to knit with and wear.

Notes

Linen is VERY STRETCHY, especially at this tension, and I suggest you look closely at the size measurements and go down a size (or go down a needle size). The garment is designed quite oversized and I think there is a lot of flexibility in choosing a size, depending on how you want it to look. This can be a real plus, you may not need to buy as much yarn if you’re normally a medium/large/extra large!

Size

  • 54 (60¾, 66, 72¾)” [137 (154.5, 167.5, 185) cm] bust circumference
  • Shown in 54” / 137 cm on a 34” / 86.5 cm, 5’8” / 172.5 cm tall model with 20” / 51 cm positive ease.
  • Designed to be worn with 16-24” / 40-60 cm positive ease.

Davis

My friend Dawn was looking to take advantage of our summer sale and made a summer sweater, so I pulled together a Ravelry search for her and when she came across Davis she kind of made a swooning sound. I figured if it was swoonable for her, everyone should eyeball it. It’s an oversized pullover, which means it’ll have lots of room to move and lots of casual elegance. It’s made with Quince & Co Kestrel, a gorgeous chunky weight, 100% organic linen tape – one of my favourite summer yarns because it’s easy to knit with, works up fast, and washes and wears extremely easily. Plus, it’s ON SALE NOW!

Size

  • Finished bust: 41½ (44¾, 48, 51¼, 54½, 57½, 60¾)” [105.5 (113.5, 122, 130, 138.5, 146, 154.5) cm]
  • shown in size 44¾” [113.5 cm] with approx 11″ [28 cm] positive ease

Quick Sand

I just finished this little cardie for myself, and I think it worked out really nicely! It’s a simple, top-down cardie made with Quince & Co Kestrel (ON SALE ALL JULY). The colour is ‘Senza’, an ecru. I modified the pattern and made it cropped, so I only used 6 skeins instead of 8. I also made one size smaller than I would normally wear (all the details are in my Ravelry Notes). You’ll probably see me wearing it around the store very soon, I think it’s going to become a summer wardrobe staple.

Day Blossom

I came across this prettly little summer wrap today and I had to share! It’s a great warm weather knit, take to the cottage, road-trip friendly knit. Plus, it’s made with linen, so its wearable all season too. I love the texture, the pattern makes really good use of two different weights of Quince & Co’s linen (which you know I LURV) for a creative & beautiful effect. Wearable, knitterly, and beautiful – my favourite trifecta!
