We are almost two weeks into our Leonie KAL, and we are having so much fun watching all these Leonies come to life! So far, we have seen all kinds of linens, and cottons start to become breezy summer sweaters, but there are those of you who have been looking for something a little warmer. For those of you asking about a winter Leonie, we have put together some suggestions for yarns that will easily translate into the colder months. The beauty of the Leonie, what allows it to look so good on everyone, is that it is very drapey. So, when making a woolly Leonie, the trick is to create a fabric that insulates without adding bulk. With that in mind, we have created yarn pairings that combine wools with cottons and linens to ensure warmth as well as drape. Using a larger needle like a 9 or a 10 will help ensure that your wintery Leonie is both cozy and flattering.
These are just some of the amazing winter Leonies that we have been dreaming of in the shop! With all these options, there is a winter Leonie here for everyone.
Remember to let us know what you are using and update us on your Leonie progress here on Ravelry.
