I love the variety of patterns in Slow Fashion Made Fast. There’s a basket, cowl, wrap, wall hanging, cardigan, poncho, blanket, headband, scarf, pillow cover, hat, and tote. There’s something for everyone.
All the patterns in Slow Fashion Made Fast use size 6 (chunky) yarn. This is one of the reasons the patterns work up so fast. Alexandra used neutral colors for her samples, however you can use any color that you like.
I chose a happy orange to make the Twist Front Headband. It took right around an hour start to finish, so I was a happy knitter. I found the pattern to read well and be easy to follow; also, it was fun to make. The twist in this style of headband can be hard to figure out, so I was careful to follow the instructions exactly as written. My twist came out perfect!
Alexandra uses some great texture in the patterns that fill Slow Fashion Made Fast. There are cables, ribs, basket weave, loops, braids, and tassels. The textures make it so the pieces can be knit in one color while still having interest.
With the modern maker movement, the knit creations you will make from Slow Fashion Made Fast will keep you in fashion. There is still time to knit up a few of these for the winter holidays!
