Trudy Van Stralen

for Louet North America   c.2007


Another of the perfect, rare marriages of materials and design. The Gems yarns have an unusually pronounced twist which sets off guernsey-style patterning especially well, and Van Stralen takes full advantage of it here. All the stitch patterning just pops, and there's a great variety of it-- everything from knit/purl combinations to twisted stitch rib columns and cables. You can choose from either a crew or a V neck, and a selvage stitch is provided at all edges to be seamed. Body is knit in the round, then split for front and back. Just a great, classic design. If they're photographed in these, your kids (boys or girls) will be proud of their school pictures all their lives.
