I won’t go into too much detail about the actual magazine since we have an awesomely gorgeous website for you to check out, but I did want to give you the highlights.
For the Winter 2020 digital issue, we decided to use a very warm and inspiring palette of navy, forest green, cranberry, tobacco, and cream. Best part? The entire issue follows a cookie theme!
Swish Worsted Yarn – You’ll want to Squish the Swish!
For the Bredele Vest crochet pattern, I decided to try Swish Worsted from WeCrochet.
This yarn is a 100% Fine Superwash Merino Wool. This worsted yarn comes in 110 yard/ 50 g skeins and is available in 47 different colors! I’m thinking my next order might include some Haze Heather, or maybe Nutmeg Heather!
Swish is made using a high grade Merino wool (20.5 microns), meaning this machine-washable yarn is super soft. Like, next to skin soft. The best part? Your finished piece can be machine washed and will come out even softer than before!
WeCrochet Notes: For best machine wash results, turn the garment inside out and wash in cold water on a delicate cycle. You may want to wash projects made from darker colors by themselves for the first few washes in case the yarn bleeds a bit.
Another company we have partnered with are our friends at Furls Crochet. We used the Streamline Swirl hooks when creating our designs. It’s no secret that I am in love with Furls hooks, and my carpal tunnel is much less aggravated too!
Also, how can we have a cookie themed issue and not use the Cookie N Cream Swirls?
This is what you’ve been waiting for, right? For the Winter 2020 digital issue, we have 7 stunning designs for you. The Gingersnap Pullover by Briana Kepner, the Coconut Macaroon Sweater Dress by Michelle Moore, the Pizzelle Cardigan by Lorene Eppolite, The Bredele Vest by Pamela Stark, the Cranberry Biscotti Turtleneck by Michelle Moore, the Striped Shortbread Duster by Briana Kepner, and the Amaretti Boyfriend Cardigan by Lorene Eppolite.
My Design – Bredele Vest Crochet Pattern
I designed the Bredele Vest with Swish Worsted yarn in the color Delft Heather.
The Bredele Cropped Vest is a fun and unexpected garment to add to your winter wardrobe. This piece was designed to be slightly cropped with a cowl neck, but can easily be adjusted to your style preference. The playful fringe added on to the cowl really sets this design apart.
A few things to consider…. I designed this vest with a cowl neck and fringe. Not a fan of fringe? No worries! It’s just as cute without! Just check out the photo below! Cowls not your thing? Copy the same ribbed band found at the bottom of the vest and use it around the neckline! For more customization tips, be sure to check out our handy Custom Fit Guide for the Winter 2020 issue! It includes custom tips for all 7 designs!
Although this vest was made with super soft merino (which is considerably soft against the skin), you might want an animal-free fibre. In that case, try a cotton yarn for breathability and comfort, or an acrylic for extra warmth and durability. Try a bold color to make a fun statement, or keep it neutral for versatility. I also think this would look cute done in chunky stripes!
