The weatherman might be calling for frosty temperatures, but the heat is on in this Winter issue of Vogue Knitting, with fabulous layering pieces to work up (and warm you up) quickly and with unique flair. Lose the sleeves with a varied collection of six vest patterns, or try one of Cathy Carron's lusciously haloed, cropped creations to top off any outfit. Effortlessly cool, the moto jacket gets re-worked times three. Release your inner rebel and take one out for a spin on the needles.
If your style leans more to the relaxed, you'll enjoy the article on Tara Stiles, founder of Stala Yoga and the five comfy coverups and accessory pieces she models. Keep those muscles warm and limber with an oversized short-sleeved jacket, pullover hoodie, fisherman's rib hat, two-tone gloves and funky, split-toe gymnastic sandal socks.
When it's time to add some glamour, indulge in one of the season's top trends and knit one of the four, featured cowl and capelet designs in faux fur. Meg Swansen discusses joining and weaving in yarn ends to give your handiwork the appropriate, 'spit and polish', there are seven new titles to explore in Knit Lit. and a terrific article lets you read up on how a remote Oregon ranch is making its own Olympic journey to Sochi, Russia. Why not take a little journey yourself with one of the inspired designs within these pages.
