ZARA 8 - Classic Line 2019

VIVIANNA Cabled VestCiao a tutti,

 

Hello and welcome back to the Filatura di Crosa Blog! This week, we’re focusing all our attention on the brand new Vivianna Vest!

Vests are the type of garment that always fly under the radar. We, as knitters and crocheters are usually so caught up in our sweater and shawl projects that we completely forget about them! But… they’re the perfect garment for transitional seasons! When it’s too warm for a sweater and too cool for a tee, throw on a vest! Not to mention they’re great for layering during colder months. When we were designing the FW 19/20 collection, we started seeing vests pop up all over the runways. You could find them in various shows like Missoni, Proenza Schouler, Tibi, and so many others! We knew immediately we had to include at least one in the line.

Vivianna is a beautiful two-colored vest designed with positive ease. It features double cables, a flyaway front, intarsia details, a turtleneck, and it’s finished off with ribbed edging. Vivianna is knit up in FDC’s newly relaunched Zara 8, a 100% extrafine superwash merino in a true worsted weight. The vest is a fun and quick project that’s knit flat on 4mm (US 6) needles. Vivianna is perfect for any beginners looking to challenge themselves, or for experienced knitters who just want to make something different.

As you can probably tell from the name, Zara 8 is a part of the “Zara Family” of yarns. That means it’s made with the same signature “z-twist”, 19.5-micron merino, and quality as our classic Zara. We did make one change when bringing back Zara 8 though... it’s packed on 100g skeins! We’ve had so many requests for a worsted weight wool on large skeins that we finally decided to go for it. We put together a palette of 21 bold and classic colors so there’s something for everyone! Zara 8 is lofty, light, and it knits up in no time.

Vivianna is currently the October free pattern of the month for Filatura di Crosa newsletter subscribers. To download the pattern, simply visit (link) and enter your information!

 

A presto,

Ms. F. Crosa
