Twist Collective Spring/ Summer 2013

With the summer months quickly approaching we've been looking forward to simple lace patterns and lightweight projects for easy traveling. In the latest issue of Twist Collective, Iris Wildsmith combines lace with textured stitches to create Galliera.

We love the transitions Iris incorporates throughout the hat.  From a twisted rib to the subtle lace detail to a simple textured stitch pattern that replicates the gorgeous architecture of the Eiffel Tower; Galliera is a great project for those summer months filled with travel. From the beach to the city of Paris, this hat will be a great companion on any trip.
