I’m excited to formally announce the upcoming launch of Juntos: Knits for Togetherness, a seasonal pattern collection for families. The Juntos collection will be released over the course of 2018, and will feature four garments for adults accompanied by four coordinating children’s garments, as well as two unisex accessory patterns for all ages.
Beginning this month, a set of coordinated patterns will be released each season of the year, a total of 10 patterns by December 2018—2 women’s sweaters, 1 men’s sweater, 1 adult vest, 1 children’s vest, 3 children’s sweaters, and 2 unisex accessories for both adults and children.
What does coordinating mean?
While the overall look in coordinating adult/child patterns will be similar, you can expect children’s garments to feature simpler constructions and/or kid-friendly details like hoods and pockets. Adult garments will have more shaping to fit adult bodies, and more sophisticated treatments at necklines, hemlines, and sleeves.
The publication schedule is tentatively as follows:
· February: women’s/children’s cardigan
· April: women’s/children’s pullover
· July: Accessories
· October: Men’s/women’s/children’s vest
· December: Men’s/children’s pullover
Men’s garments will be available in 4 sizes, S – XL; women’s garments will be available in 6 sizes, XS – 2X; children’s garment patterns will include 7 sizes, 12m – 10 years.
While adults’ and children’s garments are designed to complement each other, they will be written as separate patterns and available for purchase individually. Accessory patterns will include all sizes in a single pattern. Patterns will be available at regular MPD prices: $7 for garments and $6 for accessories; coordinating adult/child garment patterns will forever be available for purchase as a set for $10.
Best of all, you can now pre-order the complete collection! Pre-orders will be available all year, with staggered pricing:
