KW Summer Sweater – Time to Vote!

We were blown away by the creativity of design, caliber of knitting, dedication to detail and finished photographs of all of the KW Sweet Summer Sweater contest submissions! It may sound somewhat cliche, but really, honestly truly: everyone who participated is a total winner. So much so, in fact, that we were so impressed by the participants that it took us hours to come up with a top 5 for voting. {There was even talk of a “Top 10”, but we wanted to stick to the original plan.}

so…without further ado, in no particular order, the TOP FIVE!

A) A lovely scoop neck cap-sleeved pullover with a shirt-tail hem, garter details at the side, and buttons at the back designed by D.C. We are particularly fond of all of the little subtle details in this sweater – the hem is trendy, the little garter details add just enough visual and textural interest, the scoop neck is flattering on all manner of body types, and the buttons at the back are a lovely and feminine detail. 

B) A fitted, short sleeved wrap cardigan with a shawl collar, tulip hem, open v-neck and deep ribbing designed by Wendy. We were immediately drawn to the fitted body, beautiful wrap detail, lovely shaped hem and perfectly proportioned sleeve length on this sweater.

C) A golden scoop neck tank with a centered wide lace and cable panel up the fronts and back knit designed by Whitney. We were really drawn, again (can you see a pattern forming, here?) to the details on this tank – the open lace is great for a spring or summer garment, the thin stockinette stitch cuffs on the sleeves + neck, and shaping all make for a lovely finished sweater.

D) A spring green tunic featuring a vertically knit centered cabled detail and horizontally knit sides designed by Dorothea. The short cap sleeves and textured seed stitch borders balance the longer length and curved hem. We really love the juxtaposition between the strong verticals of the cables and the drape that the horizontal stitches create.

E) At first, this lovely natural sweater designed by Mel looks like a plain short sleeved pullover, but as we looked closer at the details  – the open back, the reverse stockinette yoke, garter hem and rolled edges – it became clear that this sweater has it all and is flattering, feminine and unique.

And now that we’ve done all the hard work of narrowing it down from the amazing, amazing entries, it is time to vote!! Using the poll below, pick your favorite sweater from the finalists to help them win. Polling will be open until Thursday, October 3rd at Midnight EST and the winner will be announced on Friday, October 4th. 

We can’t wait to see who wins!
