Style it! Better Together Marled Knits

From work to running errands around town, our Better Together: Marled Knits pattern collection has something for every occasion. Arriving just in time for cooler spring mornings and chilly summer nights, this pattern collection has 16 cozy and colorful patterns. Each project features unique textures created by holding two yarns together, making these garments easy to make and pair with different outfits.

Business Casual

The Couplet Turtleneck is cozy enough for a Saturday morning at home but is luxurious enough to dress up for the office. Knitted using one strand of Capra, our elegant Merino and cashmere wool yarn, and one strand of Aloft, a lace weight mohair, gives this chunky sweater a sumptuous drape. The subtle waist shaping elevates the usual casual sweater into the perfect sweater to strut your stuff while refilling your water bottle in the office!

To balance out the relaxed silhouette, pair this squishy sweater with a dark wash skinny jean. Keeping the jeans dark and with no distressing puts the emphasis on the lovely marled texture of the sweater and streamlines your silhouette. Finish up the outfit with simple flats (or boots in the fall!) and a fun accessory. We love using our Meow Meow Folio as a clutch to add a punch of whimsy and color to a simple outfit.

Weekend Wear

The U-District Pullover is the perfect blend of comfy and trendy. It is over-sized through the body, sleeves, and funnel neck, but fitted at the natural waist and cuffs, making the perfect silhouette to pair with your favorite pair of high-waisted jeans. The throw-back to 70’s style of the over-sized sleeves matches perfectly with some bell bottoms in dark or light wash, and a wool hat. This outfit is cozy enough for weekend wear but still put together enough for a brunch with your girls or date night with your main squeeze.

The Cherry on Top

My favorite knit projects have been accessories where I can layer them on top of my existing wardrobe to add some color, texture or quirky style. The Berkett Beanie checks all three boxes for me. The dusty colors match a majority of outfits and the marled stitches add an adorable touch of texture to your ensemble. And can we talk about that pom-pom? It is a work of art! You do not see pom-poms with this amount of sass often. This outfit dresses up my personal favorite—yoga pants! Layer on a structured collared shirt with a slinky, drapey cardigan with a pop of color and pair with boots, flats, or sneakers for the perfect cozy-cool outfit. The cherry on top is the Berkett Beanie!

    I love reading all the blog posts and totally adore listening to the podcasts, either with a cuppa or while I knit (totally feels like knitting with girlfriends!) but can I just say how wonderful I think this article is?? Would love to see more like this, such a great idea to suggest some put together outfits that really showcase the knits.

    Seriously, that pom pom!
    I like that you pointed it out because I didn’t notice it at first in pictures. Am obsessed.
