I’m so excited to announce...the Winter 2012/2013 issue of Clotheshorse Magazine is now available online and features my design of a graphic sweater dress.  It’s been named BAUHAUS and is included in the 'graphic’ collection of the magazine.  I really love how it's been styled and photographed…and the model is perfect!

Bauhaus was knit in Louet Kid Mohair yarn in rich, vibrant colours.  The graphics are created using colour blocks of cream, tomato red, green apple, black and spicy pumpkin.  It's been designed to be a loose-fitting sweater dress with 6-8” positive ease.  The lace-weight mohair knits up beautifully on US 5 (3.75 mm) needles creating a lightweight fabric with a deep saturation of colour.  

The Graphics collection features bright colours and bold patterns – stripes, zigzags and geometrics.  'Wear with colours equally as bright or make a plainer outfit of neutral colours ‘pop’ with a blast of colour and pattern.  A fun mix of yarns and textures add to this collection that is sure to brighten up your day.' 

Graphics have been making a return to the runways with all-over patterning, strong geometric shapes, and bold colours.  Graphic prints will continue to be a trend in Spring 2013 as seen on the fashion runways.

The pattern is available to purchase and download directly from Clotheshorse Magazine, on pages 86 & 87 of the Winter 2012/2013 issue.  It is also available through Ravelry by visiting Bauhaus.

Many thanks to Clotheshorse with a very special thanks to Mindy Brown and Heather Dixon.
