Spring Make-It-Now 2021

Our Spring '21 Make It Now collection features stitch textures -- mesh, cables, seed, eyelets, and knit-purl combinations in embossed relief -- in light fabrics and soft colors that highlight March's transitional weather.


As March is also Women's History Month, the pattern names nod to women who've won the Nobel Prize: Grazia Deledda (Literature, 1926), Emmanuelle Charpentier (Chemistry, 2020), Gertrude Elion (Medicine, 1988), Ada Yonath (Chemistry, 2009), and Alice Munro (Literature, 2013).


Feliz and Cabrito combine to give Elion's ribbed cables a lofty feel and subtle coloration. Knitting begins at one narrow point and ends at the opposite short edge with an openwork pattern that produces a pointed bind-off.
