I’m so excited to show you my latest design: Aitos. I designed this exclusively for Verb’s Pro-Verbial Club. The yarn is called Floating, a blend of alpaca, silk, and cashmere that’s been indigo-dyed by Kristine Vejar.
This is the fourth of my designs that I’ve done with Verb yarn. Since working there two years ago, I’ve been a fan of Kristine’s naturally-dyed yarns. Designing for Pro-Verbial is especially exciting right now, because it coincides with the release of Kristine’s book, which I can’t wait to add to my library.
Lately, I’ve been tending towards rugged yarns, and stalwart, textural patterns. Aitos is a bit of a departure for me. It’s feminine, soft, lacy, maybe even frilly. I had originally planned a design that’s more “me,” something geometric and unisex. But seeing, touching, and feeling the yarn, I knew it needed to be something special. I’m super happy with how it turned out, and I’ve been throwing it over my jacket non-stop since I finished it.
For now, the pattern is only available to Pro-Verbial members. If you’d like to know when Aitos will be available to everyone, just leave me a comment and I’ll send you an email when the time comes!
