A Little Twisted

Sunday, November 20th, 2011


There is always a little excitement when a new Twist Collective comes out. A collection of trendy new patterns comes out, along with a few great articles, a knitters delight. It was especially exciting this time around because Ann’s new pattern Eira was featured in it!


Ann has recently started her own design company, Caribou Knits and she’s already moving full steam ahead with a spot in Twist! Eira is a lovely sock weight pullover with icicle eyelet details at the neck and cuffs. I love the pretty button detail on the shoulder, it gives the sweater a nice vintage-inspired feel. I’m also a fan of the 3/4 length sleeve, as someone who is constantly pushing up her full length sleeves. Congratulations Ann!

Caribou Knits

One of my favorite things about working for Urban Yarns has to be getting to know the lovely and talented people who work there. Ann is certainly no exception and I’m so happy to share her new knitwear design company Caribou Knits.


Ann has been diligently working for some months now creating her company and working on her first designs. I cannot wait to cast on for a Brae Cowl of my very own. Elegant houndstooth combined with the practicality of a cowl, and a fantastic colour combo too!


There are also 2 comfy looking vests from Caribou Knits, Samara and Kettle Valley. Both stylish and effortless looking, they remind me (unsurprisingly) of Ann. She always looks like she just threw something on and it looks fabulous. Samara is knit in Rowan Big Wool and Kettle Valley is done in Berocco Blackstone Tweed. I’m particularly pleased to see that all of Ann’s patterns come in a wide range of sizes, come one come all!
