By Anna Maltz
Marlisle is a simple, yet novel approach to stranded knitting, where two colours magically become three by using yarn held double. Anna Maltz has designed 11 contemporary and wearable circular knits to introduce this technique to adventurous knitters of all levels. Spanning fingerless mitts, mittens, cowls, hats, a scarf, shawl, cardigan and sweaters, these cosy projects deftly show how Marlisle can be used to combine different weight yarns, create scattered motifs and mask jogs in unexpected ways. The results are strikingly graphic, textured, inspiring and intriguing.
A design origin story and yarn pairing notes sets the scene for each pattern. All the projects are knitted in a combination of a natural, sheepy shade and a hand-dyed yarn from 22 different, passionate small-producers from around the world.
