It's been a wintry and cold start to 2016 here in Maine. True to form, snowstorms (some of them thundersnow!) have been blanketing our January days. So it feels like perfect timing for us—today, we're very excited to share with you our first collection of the year: Scarves, Etc. 5!
For this fresh crop of patterns, we had the good fortune to work with nine talented designers—many of whom are new to Quince—and they've created a gorgeous and eclectic mix of projects for our yarns. In addition to scarves, there are shawls, cowls, wraps, and even a poncho; from delicate and lacy to substantial texture and color, we think there's something in this collection for every knitterly style or mood.
We have glorious textural stitches and unique embellishment:
And last but not least, we have a celebration of shape and color:
The Scarves, Etc. 5 lookbook is expanded a bit from previous editions: This time around, we serve up a Q&A session with each of the designers, and from our side, we talk about what it was that especially drew us to these particular designs. It was (and always is) quite challenging to narrow down the submissions we receive for a single issue, so we thought it'd be nice to share a bit about how a collection like this takes shape.
We hope you enjoy this year's Scarves, Etc. installment! And don't forget, our sale on Scarves, Etc. from years past ends after today, so you'll want to scoop those up at special pricing while you still can.
