Julie Hoff (Weisenberger),
Cathy Payson

for Classic Elite Yarns   1993

439 Greener Pastures

The first real modern Renaissance of knitwear design was in the 80's and 90's. Suddenly knitters had an extensive choice of different weights and types of yarns and designs to make their own garments, designers were likewise inspired, and pieces like these were the result. Hoff worked one of her favorite themes-- oak leaves-- into a marvellous monotone stitch pattern on the left: drop shoulder, all other lines except front neck straight. Payson likewise works a classic drop-shoulder shape into a deep V-neck (not crew!) with rich stitch detail. Try Renaissance instead of Paisley; Inca Alpaca is the CEY-recommended substitute for Avalon.
