Worsted – A Knitwear Collection Curated by Aimée Gille of La Bien Aimée is a knitwear collection featuring 14 patterns by 10 incredible designers. Each designer has their own unique style, and the designs speak to many kinds of knitters. They have come together to form a beautifully cohesive collection.
Included in the 160 page volume are garments such as sweaters and cardigans, graded from 30" to 65" bust circumference, and accessories, like shawls and hats, with techniques ranging from stripes and stranded colorwork to cables and textured stitch patterns.
The book features designs by the following designers: Nadia Crétin-Léchenne, Stephen West, Sylvia Watts-Cherry, Andrea Mowry, Tif Neilan, Saysha Greene, Norah Gaughan, Maxim Cyr, Nancy Marchant and Thien-Kieu Lam. For more in-depth details about each of the patterns, including finished measurements and yarn requirements, please click here to view them on Ravelry.
With Worsted, Aimée wanted to create a tangible way to connect with people through knitting and bring joy. During the challenges of the last 18 months, Aimée found comfort in immersing herself in creating a new yarn base, Corrie Worsted, and inspired by it, all of the designs in the book are worked in worsted weight yarn.
In Aimée’s own words: “I hope that you will welcome the adventure of casting on a new project from this book with perhaps some of that beloved yarn you have curated for your stash or why not go on a yarn escapade and mix Corrie Worsted with other yarns.”
Aimée Gille was born and raised in Kansas and later moved to France, where her passion for knitting was reignited. In Paris, where she now lives with her family, she first opened L’OisiveThé, a wonderful knitting café, and later La Bien Aimée, her yarn company.
