Flight of Fancy

Introducing Pumpkin and Teal – MillaMia’s Limited Edition colors for Fall 2014 in Naturally Soft Merino!

MillaMia had all the pieces from the Flight of Fancy Collection re-knit to showcase the new colors and to show how striking they look combined with the core color range for even more color combinations.

The Vanessa Cable Cardigan is a simple, yet elegant piece that can be modified in a variety of ways. It can be knit two-tone with cabled fronts, as shown here in Pumpkin and Midnight:

Perhaps you prefer to be less daring and favor one color, like the Teal shown here:

Or maybe you like the idea of the two-tone cardigan, but want to eliminate the cables. Why not try a bold color combination like the Teal with Claret trim:

Cowls have been all the rage the past few years – they are easy projects to knit on the go and are a fun and stylish addition to anyone’s wardrobe. Using the same cable pattern as the cardigan above, the Vanessa Cowl is knit side-to-side using the main color and then stitches are picked up in the contrast color.

I love the way the pop of color peeks out of the cowl. It’s also completely reversible, which makes it easy to switch up on those days when you feel like you need a little change.

Another popular trend is color blocking. And I think it is here to stay (at least for a little while). So why not embrace it with the Larissa Top?

This top takes that classic pullover sweater and adds a bit of whimsy and fashion to it. The front is striped using three different colors (Pumpkin, Midnight and Putty). The balance of the sweater is knit in blocks of color. The keyhole on the back is outlined with the main color from the front for that added je ne sais quoi detail.

We all love great kids sweaters and the versatile cardigans included in this book, shown here in the new colors, are perfect for the fall season ahead.

The Luca Cardigan might just be the perfect back-to-school sweater. It’s a color blocked V-neck sweater with pockets. Make it in your child’s (grandchild’s, niece’s nephew’s…you get the idea) favorite colors or even their school colors to show their team spirit.

Or with a few more girly details, the Lucia Cardigan might be the one for your special girl. Also color blocked and with pockets, this cardigan is an open front crew neck cardigan with an optional bow at the center front neck.

But the best part of these cardigans? There is an optional chart for the backs that feature bats. Perfect for the Halloween enthusiasts in your family! The charts can be worked in Intarsia or in duplicate stitch.

All the pieces in Flight of Fancy would look great in any of the Naturally Soft Merino colors available. There are so many wonderful colors to choose from, the hardest part might be picking the right combination for you (or your loved ones).

The ladies at MillaMia are busy working on a new project that is coming soon. I can’t wait to tell you about it. But until then…

Knit on.
