Worsted – A Knitwear Collection Curated by Aimée Gille of La Bien Aimée is a knitwear collection featuring 14 patterns by 10 incredible designers. The designers all have their unique styles and speak to many kinds of knitters. Now they come together to form a beautifully cohesive collection. You can find garments such as sweaters and cardigans and accessories like shawls and hats, with techniques ranging from stripes and stranded colourwork to cables and textured stitch patterns.

With Worsted, Aimée Gille, the founder of the yarn company La Bien Aiméewanted to create a tangible way to connect with people through knitting and bring joy. During the challenges of the Covid era, 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.”

The jury of the Most Beautiful Books of 2021 in Finland

“Since I love wearing handknit sweaters, I set out to design the perfect sweater yarn. For me, this is a yarn that isn’t too thin, so it doesn’t take too long to knit, and isn’t too thick, so it isn’t too hot to wear. Corrie Worsted is a light worsted weight that could work at a DK gauge and can easily fall into a worsted weight gauge as well.”
