SWEETGEORGIA VOL 1


2 | Fall with SweetGeorgia Vol. 1


here and there, the fires of autumn spark with colour I’m not sure if it is the soft crunch of the fallen leaves under my feet or the aroma of wood being chopped for fireplaces in the winter, but fall is the season that makes my soul sing. The month of September rolls around and I am filled with romantic, nostalgic longings of life, growth, and the way things change when you least expect them. It’s a time to go inward, to discover what needs to be let go and what new amazing things need to be learned. In fact, I’d wager that those inner experiences are why knitting is so powerful. It offers the same beautiful process: the chance to uncover that quiet moment inside, to challenge everything you thought you knew, to learn something daring and amazing. And when you add in the emotional effect of vibrant colour and soft, delicious fibers ... well, it’s easy to imagine that knitting could very well lead to inner peace. I hope that the stunning patterns in our Fall/Winter lineup inspire, delight, and encourage your knitting passion throughout the upcoming chilly months. #sweetgeorgiayarns fiber-filled hugs,

Tabetha Hedrick Design Director, Knitwear SweetGeorgia Yarns 3


FLEXION by Jill Wright // knit in Superwash DK

With a hint of intarsia, two contrasting colours twist together for the perfect A-line tunic, taking this pullover from glam to slam. The small details, such as the button closure and shaped sleeve caps, make this a must-knit for everyone and a chic piece for the year-round wardrobe. 5

REILAND by Corrina Ferguson // knit in Superwash Sport

Lace reminiscent of falling leaves and a unique construction result in a shawl that is as positively exquisite to knit as it is to wear. Shawl enthusiasts will delight in the interesting rounded-rectangular shape with a drape that is what dreams are made of, perfect for those chilly fall days.

ELEANOR MITTS by Andrea Grunden // knit in Superwash Sport

Simple, delicate stitches exude an understated elegance, allowing the small details to make a bold statement. Unexpected colour steps off the fabric of Stockinette stitch and ribbing in this enchanting mitten pattern, worked flat, that will delight knitters of all skill levels.

GLENWOOD by Triona Murphy // knit in Superwash Worsted

10 | Fall with SweetGeorgia Vol. 1


Glenwood is a long, cozy cardigan with plenty of yummy texture. Worked from the bottom up in pieces and seamed for structure, the sweater is comfortable yet stylish and works equally well for running errands, going out with friends, or snuggling in front of a roaring fire.

11


SIESTA by Shireen Nadir // knit in CashLuxe Spark

Amazingly soft texture and a unique construction make this cowl a favorite that you’ll knit over and over again. You’ll love the way the delicate twisted rib subtly pops off the fabric and when paired with the delicate twinkle of our new CashLuxe Spark, it equals pure enchantment.

WINTER SUNRISE by Mindy Wilkes // knit in Tough Love Sock and CashSilk Lace

14 | Fall with SweetGeorgia Vol. 1


Delicate lace melds beautifully, perfectly, with the supple texture of garter stitch in this airy, lightweight shawl. The asymmetrical shaping is simple, yet engaging, while the picot-bind off ensures the most finished look. Even on the most bitter of winter mornings, the silky lace comforts and delights. 15


WHISPER by Heather Zoppetti // knit in Superwash DK

This delightfully feminine cardigan unites simple lace and beautiful shaping just perfectly. Worked in pieces from the bottom up, the results are fitted, classic, and wonderfully casual. This go-to cardigan will become a staple in your wardrobe this fall!

SLICE by Meg Roke // knit in Trinity Worsted

Gradual colour changes slice through the fabric, like the snowy winds across a dark landscape, making the perfect accessory for the cold winter season. An easy introduction to intarsia, all knitters will delight in this lusciously soft scarf that highlights the subtle shifts of hand-dyed yarn.

19


AINE by Linda Marveng // knit in Superwash DK

A striking reversible cowl, named after the ancient Irish word meaning “radiance,� is a rich, yet deliciously easy combination of cables, garter, and moss stitch. The textural patterning is a pleasure on its own, but becomes brilliant when paired with the lavish colour of hand-dyed yarn.

NEXUS by Emily Wood // knit in CashLuxe Fine

Transition through the changing seasons with grace and style while cozied up in this delectably cable-rich shawlette. Texture exudes with thin twists and turns, while the simple, long and luxurious crescent-shaping enchants every style of knitter.

WAGGLE HAT & MITTENS by Yvette Noel // knit in Superwash DK

OUR YARNS There is something impossibly alluring about hand-dyed yarns. Everything from the vibrance to the subtle nuances in shade and hue capture the heart as well as the imagination. Hand-dyed yarn has the feeling of being alive. Ten years have passed since I dyed my first skein of yarn at my dining room table. Today, our yarns and fibres are hand-dyed at our studio in Vancouver, Canada by a team of passionate and skilled artisans. Over the years, the things we collectively believe, practice, and value have converged and interwoven to become the fabric of “SweetGeorgia.” For many, SweetGeorgia has become synonymous with vibrant, saturated colour and luxury yarn. But for us, it’s about more than yarn. We are driven to inspire, engage, and educate people in colourful and creative self-expression, bringing light into people’s lives.

hzoppettidesigns.com To Meg Roke, there is nothing more satisfying than slipping fiber over her fingers and round a set of needles to transform simple string into something both beautiful and practical. Add a warm cup of tea, chocolate, and a period piece drama and this former special education teacher transforms into one very happy knitter! Meg’s designs are simple, wearable and usually involve stash busting. Linda Marveng is a Norwegian who loves to design feminine garments with the added texture that cables and lace knitting give. She studied art history and worked first for architecture firms in London, then for Rowan Yarns as a design consultant. She continues to design, proofread knitting books and magazines, translate patterns, and offer workshops.

Her first project was a pair of mittens that she and her mom knit together. She picked up knitting again when she was expecting her first child and has never stopped since. Kirsten Singer has been knitting for over ten years and has had designs published by KnitPicks, Knit.Purl, Knit Now, and Holla Knits (an online magazine), as well as independently. Through those experiences, she’s learned more than she ever thought possible about knitting, and about herself.
