The new Vogue Early Fall 2010 preview is up and we are excited to announce that Kate has a sweater she designed and knit out of Terra featured in "The Weekenders", a collection of cardigans (her favorite!) The sweater is designed with a longer body, deep cable rib cuffs and hem and seed stitch body and sleeves. The button band and collar are worked in the same cable pattern and it is finished off with real leather woven buttons.

We love the way Vogue styled the shoot -- it has a very rustic country feel and we imagine the room smells like leather, pine and wood fire. And, also, maybe a freshly brewed hot toddy.
We were able to take a few impromptu shots right before Kate mailed it off to Vogue so you can see some close-ups. The fabric created from the slubby texture of the yarn combined with the textural seed stitch and cabled fabric is particularly nice.
As you can see, this particular photo shoot was not styled. At all. Unless you call the vacant lot next to the warehouse filled with vines, trash and graffiti and the t-shirt she wears 3 times a week a new "style".
Kate originally put on these wood buttons, but the were replaced with the leather. This is a very good thing. Real woven leather buttons are 1/2 of the reason why she loves cardigans so much.
Still haven't had enough? Check out Vogue's Fancy 360 feature, which shows great detail shots of the sweater on another model!
The magazine will hit newsstands on June 9th, so when it does, grab a copy, some Terra and knit one up -- you'll be happy you did once summer is over and fall rolls around again.
