Designer Feature: biscotti by Lori Versaci
biscotti by Lori Versaci and featured in the newly published twin rib collection, is an elegant short sleeved pullover featuring Savannah‘s persimmon, a dusty red-orange originally inspired by the delicious fruit. Lori’s inspiration when designing biscotti was very simple, “create a cute, stylish sweater that would flatter any type of body”; and her design is a beautiful interpretation of a classic pullover.
Both design and yarn go hand and hand in showcasing the texture featured in Savannah due to the reverse stockinette stitch and edged in twin rib for a subtle detail that does not detract from the simplicity of the garment.
The full collection features many elements of sweater knitting that we love – shapes inspired by classic garments, components knit in pieces and seamed for structure and fit, and unique textures that allow the yarn to shine.
