Knitting for Olive Soft Silk Mohair Projects
Bindweed stems, observed during a walk in a Californian spring field, inspired the design of this cropped, open-front cardigan. The muted color and gentle halo give the sweater a soft and natural look. Designed to be worn with approximately 10 cm of positive ease, Bindweed works super well with a variety of outfits from simple jeans to floral dresses, providing the comfort and coziness of a hug wherever the road takes us. Designed by Ksenia Naidyon.
This triangular shawl was inspired by the comforting feeling of gazing up at the clouds. The combination of mohair and lots of texture creates a fabric that you cannot wait to squeeze between your fingers and wrap around your shoulders as you embrace the changing weather outside. The mohair also adds a foggy haze without subtracting from the textures in the body and trim and gives the shawl a lofty appearance. Designed by Fiona Alice.

Grassland's lime colour and the flowery, leafy lace panel on the front recall sunny spots between the clouds shining on the freshly mown green land and early autumn feelings in my home surroundings. From the designer, Susan Schädler: "I live in a meadow landscape with a small lake, where I walk, run, and bike and let my daydreams flow."
Bobble Waves is a large square shawl with a slit from one corner to the middle that can be worn in different ways. Lace-weight silk–mohair held together with lace-weight alpaca make it a lightweight and versatile wardrobe staple which is a joy to knit and wear. It is worked from the middle in garter, so there are no purl stitches. Simple garter ridges transform into garter waves – you knit the first part in MC only and then add bobble waves in three contrasting colours. The waves are fun to make – and don't worry about tons of bobbles – they are easy to make, with no turning of the work required. Designed by Marion Bulin.
Cirro (‘cirrus’, a kind of cloud) is a romantic sweater knit top-down in the round, in one piece and with no seaming. Just after the rib neckline there is a section with short rows to rise the back. The yoke is very full and is knit in lace stitch. It is shaped by a series of increases hidden in the stitch pattern. Once the lace pattern is knitted there is another show row section to rise the back. The body and the sleeves are very simple, knitted in stockinette stitch. Designed by Valentina Cosciani.
