Worsted – A Knitwear Collection Curated by Aimée Gille of La Bien Aimée is a collection featuring 14 patterns by ten incredible designers. The designers all have unique styles and speak to many kinds of knitters. Now they come together to form a beautifully cohesive collection. You can find sweaters, cardigans, and accessories like shawls and hats, with techniques ranging from stripes and stranded colourwork to cables and textured stitch patterns.
Aimée Gille was born and raised in Kansas, the United States, and later moved to France, where her passion for knitting was reignited. In Paris, where she now lives with her family, she first opened L’Oisive Thé, an excellent knitting café, and later La Bien Aimée, a yarn company whose gorgeous hand-dyed yarns are sold worldwide.
With Worsted, Aimée wanted to create a tangible way to connect with people through knitting and bring joy. During the challenges of the last 18 months, Aimée found comfort in immersing herself in creating a new yarn base, Corrie Worsted, and inspired by it, all of the designs in the book are worked in worsted weight yarn.
In Aimée’s own words: “I hope that you will welcome the adventure of casting on a new project from this book with perhaps some of that beloved yarn you have curated for your stash or why not go on a yarn escapade and mix Corrie Worsted with other yarns.”
