It feels like spring has been such a long time coming here in the Northeast. Late April has finally begun rewarding us with warmer, lighter days as the long winter fades to memory. With a backdrop of blossoming trees and soft white flowers, we bring you the seventh volume in our ongoing Wool People guest designer series – a collection that was very much inspired by the color and light of spring.


Wool People 7 lookbook


My knitting friends know that I am somewhat of a hoarder of Japanese knitting books – I love their light, airy aesthetic and their precise visual approach to pattern writing. This clean, spare aesthetic has an essential quality to it that I love. My bookshelves are overrun with titles whose names I can't even read – books I've collected over the years spent hidden among the quiet shelves at Kinokuniya.

These beautiful books from Japan served as the primary source of inspiration for Wool People 7  – with designers from 4 continents responding to our submission call for garments and accessories that are beautiful in their simplicity.




This collection's lookbook includes the addition of descriptive texts within the spreads that we hope share more about what lies "under the hood" of each pattern. We make an effort to pack as much value into your patterns as possible and know that sometimes not all of the details are apparent from photography alone. I hope that these additional descriptions will enhance your viewing experience and better inform you about which projects would give you the most satisfaction.

Over the coming weeks we'll be introducing specific designs from the collection in more detail on our social media channels. I will also be conducting a series of interviews with seven of the collection's contributing designers here on the blog (starting next week), which I'm very excited about.

For now, please enjoy paging through our newest lookbook – I hope you find something that you love!
