Worsted – A Knitwear Collection Curated by Aimée Gille of La Bien Aimée is a knitwear collection featuring 14 patterns by 10 incredible designers.
The designers each have their own unique style which speaks to knitters. Here Aimée Gille has gathered them together to create a beautifully cohesive collection. You can find garments such as sweaters and cardigans and accessories like shawls and hats, with techniques ranging from stripes and stranded colourwork to cables and textured stitch patterns.
Aimée Gille was born and raised in Kansas, the United States, and later moved to France, where her passion for knitting was reignited. In Paris, where she now lives with her family, she first opened L’Oisive Thé, a wonderful knitting café, and later La Bien Aimée, a yarn company whose gorgeous hand-dyed yarns are sold worldwide.
With Worsted, Aimée wanted to create a tangible way to connect with people through knitting and bring joy.
In Aimée’s own words: “I hope that you will welcome the adventure of casting on a new project from this book.”
This book features designs by the following designers: Nadia Crétin-Léchenne, Stephen West, Sylvia Watts-Cherry, Andrea Mowry, Tif Neilan, Saysha Greene, Norah Gaughan, Maxim Cyr, Nancy Marchant and Thien-Kieu Lam.
The 14 patterns in the book include 5 sweaters, 2 cardigans, 1 poncho, 3 shawls, 2 cowls and 1 beanie. Sweaters and cardigans are graded into various sizes, reaching from size 1 (30” / 75 cm bust circumference) to at least size 8 (or 65” / 165 cm bust circumference).
