Technicolor: Matinee is a collection of accessories being released starting November 15, 2022. Six designers collaborated, choosing several stitch patterns in common, then each going her own way in designing knitwear based on one or more of those stitch patterns. Our inspiration was the movies – so many ways to go, so much to inspire!
Matinee is being offered in a staggered release, as was our 2021 collection, Rise Up. On November 15, the entire collection is $16. The price increases weekly, ending with a final selling price of $30. No matter when you purchase the collection, you will own the whole e-book as each new pattern is added (updates will be sent to you as each new pattern is added). The collection is available on Payhip and Ravelry.
November 15-21: $16.
November 22-28: $20.
November 29-December 5: $22.
December 6-12: $24.
December 13-19: $26.
December 20-26: $30.
Individual patterns may be purchased from the independent designers about two weeks after the complete collection has been released.
The first pattern in the collection is On the Set, a scarf designed by Lindsay Lewchuk, Knit Eco Chic.
The second pattern in the collection, Silvia Needs a Bag, is by Christine Guest, and the cover photo of this post is a sneak peek of the design.
The third pattern is my Calla Lily Wrap, a right triangle shawlette featuring garter stitch and more of our favorite collection stitches. Here’s a brief sneak peek of Calla. I’ve knit it in LL Yarn Co’s Worsted in the Golden Hour colorway. This yarn is a delight to work with, and I’m very grateful to LL Yarn for providing the yarn support for this design. It will be added to the collection on November 29th.
The designers participating in this collaboration, besides myself, are Lindsay Lewchuk, Christine Guest, Sue McCain, Laura Patterson and Jill Wolcott. More details, photos, links, and more will follow in the coming weeks.
