Today we're excited to share the second half of our Fall 2018 pattern collection!
Our Fall 2018 pattern collection was inspired by images of the world's most beautiful libraries, filled with soft light, rich leather bindings, gleaming wood, and cozy seating. We've teamed up with some of our favorite designers to bring you new sweaters and accessories for snuggling up and reading in. With no further ado.... here are the designs! You can purchase any of the patterns directly from the designers on Ravelry, or see more photos in our Project Gallery.
The Cable Stayed Cardigan is an open front, seamless and top-down raglan cardigan with a slightly unusual construction. Most of the body is worked in stockinette stitch, while the wedge-shaped areas where increases are worked on the fronts, waist shaping at the back, and raglan ‘seams’ have a cable pattern on reverse stockinette stitch background. The subtle shaping is sure to make it a flattering wardrobe addition. Shown in Yowza in Oyster.
Elegant Garland by Lisa Hannes
Two contrasting colors worked in a mix of garter stitch and mosaic knitting make this shawl a fun and addictive knit. Elegant Garland is worked in a mix of alternating garter stitch and mosaic bands in two colors. The effect of reversing the colors for the second half of the shawl provides some extra interest to this eye-catching item. Mosaic knitting is an easy colorwork technique that uses slipped stitches and only one color at a time. Choose your two favorite colors with good contrast to make this shawl so the mosaic motif shows well. Shown in Caroline in Pewter and Kaffir Lime.
Have you ever admired the intricate ironwork you can find in beautiful old libraries? In the library stacks, the rows of shelving can be quite fanciful and lovely — it was tracery like this that inspired Jennifer Weissman to design In the Stacks. This sport weight scarf features a beginner-friendly diagonal lace with the look of library ironwork.
Throughout the design, sections of the lace alternate with sections of bias stockinette and garter stitch, making for an engaging knit. Shaped like a rectangle with pointed ends, the finished piece is easy to wear and eye-catching, rich with interesting diagonals and textures. Shown in Yummy 3-Ply in Suspense.
A simple baby blanket with a classic gansey pattern. The Moments Blanket would be easy to make much larger, or even change the number of repeats and knit it up as a wrap! Shown in Yowza in Stowaway.
The traces left by skiers climbing uphill became the inspiration for this raglan pullover. The front of Montis shows three columns of chevron cables: one in the center points up and two on the sides are pointing down. The wide chevron motifs are divided by columns of simple cables to create visual interest. The sleeves are worked in stockinette stitch. Shown in Yowza in Oxidized Silver.
Books and a good cup of tea are two of life's great pleasures. What better way to enjoy your morning cuppa than curled up on a couch, wearing this beautiful cardigan, reading your favorite novel? The Morning Tea Cardigan features a garter and mirrored cable on the v-neck fronts and center back. This versatile cardigan can be worn with or without buttons; the pattern includes instructions for both options. Shown in Killington in Caramel.

Saturdays are made to be comfortable and look fabulous as you head to the farmer’s market or your favorite fall fiber festival. The Saturday Sweater is a loose-fitting casual pullover that is meant to have 6-10"/15-25 cm of positive ease. The sweater has drop shoulders and a boat neck that isn’t too wide or too close. The seed stitch borders give it a finished look, and are knit as you go. Shown in Keira in Lycan.
Umi Nami is an asymmetrical triangular shawl worked sideways from one end to the other. It has a stockinette ridge body and features a lace picot edging along one side of the shawl. The wavy feather and fan lace border inspired the name of the shawl, which means "sea waves" in Japanese. Shown in Yummy 2-Ply in Fig and Spiked Punch.
