A New Concept

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016

Fresh for the picking this fall from the talented team of designers at Katia, comes a relatively new CONCEPT in knitwear.  With an affinity for natural fibres that evoke the essence of pure luxury this exciting new collection highlights thirteen exceptional yarns in a softly-muted palette that creates harmony in stitches.

Coming this fall……


“In Katia Concept 2, you’ll find 51 gorgeous knit and crochet patterns that combine modernity with tradition—a must-have for the fall and winter. Included are cardigans, pullovers, wraps, cowls, scarves and ponchos. Patterns are made in enticing Katia yarns such as Cotton-Merino, Merino-Silk and Silk Tweed. CONCEPT is nature… beauty without artifice, richness of materials, purity of colour and textures, timelessness, a return to the simplicity of shapes.”



Rivulets of texture abound on this finely-sculpted cardigan knit in Cotton-Merino, an aran weight yarn with a hazy aura and subtle creamy undertones.  Col. 118 (shown above).



Well-defined cables lay out the road map for this sophisticated sweater and skirt set.  Knit in Cashmere 30, from the Katia Concept Collection available this autumn in a wide range of classic neutrals.  Col. 201 (shown above).



Make it in a weekend!  This billowy poncho is knit in three easy pieces incorporating cables and relaxed openwork stitches.  Knit in Puno, an innovative alpaca yarn with a light nubby texture.  Col. 76 (shown above).



A penchant for alpaca?  This three-quarter length jacket plays up the contrast in textures with a combination of crochet and fisherman’s rib on the collar and cuffs.  Knit in Puno, a plush alpaca yarn.  Col. 71 (shown above).



Cables and comfort go together like birds of a feather on this cosy tunic knit in Merino-Silk, a worsted weight yarn with an airy chainette-style construction.  Col. 116 (shown above).
