Elegant in their simplicity, these 13 gorgeous knitwear items for autumn and winter combine plain silhouettes with a chic and sophisticated appeal. Margeau Soboti, a former Vogue Knitting editor, presents clear instructions, diagrams, and color photos for seven sweaters and six accessories. Most of the patterns are sufficiently easy for novices but interesting enough for experienced knitters. Among the easy-to-knit items are a fur bomber hat with earflaps, a square shawl with tassels, a broken rib beanie, and a fringed wrap in triangle knit-and-purl pattern. Other simple patterns include loose- and standard-fitting crewneck pullovers, a raglan-sleeve fisherman's sweater, and drop-shoulder pullovers. More challenging patterns include a cabled beanie, an oversized crewneck pullover, and a V-neck cardigan. Yarns range in color from white and snowdrift to ivory and ecru and in weight from DK to bulky, offering an exciting variety of shades and textures.
