Fall 2023 Pattern Collection

Fall 2023 Pattern Collection

We’re delighted to introduce our latest collection of independent designs. This season’s designers played with color in stripes, stranded colorwork, gradients, brioche, mosaic, and more. And they also let texture play a role, mixing different yarns, playing with cables and lace and more subtle textures.

You can view all the patterns on Ravelry as well as in our Project Gallery.

Dancing Ledge Shawl

Frostblossom Cowl by Helen Cosgrove-Davies

The shapes water naturally freezes in as it meets a windowpane or pushes up through clay are both beautiful and fascinating: spiky edges combine into gorgeous swirling patterns. Frostblossom is the perfect cowl for keeping you warm while admiring the beauty winter has to offer!

Our sample was knit in Cordovan Yummy 2-Ply with Toes in Alcor, Fogbound, and White Peppercorn. The Frostblossom Cowl pattern is available on Ravelry and Payhip

 Sarah holds up the Gossamer shawl

Murmuration by Elizabeth Beach

Flo is wearing the Stained Glass Cowl

Stained Glass Cowl by Helen Cosgrove-Davies

With this cowl, Helen wanted to celebrate the joy of a vibrant variegated skein by contrasting it against a deep black. The fine lines of black remind me of the intricate tracings in many stained-glass windows.

Stained Glass Cowl is knit in Yummy 2-Ply, shown here in Blackbird and Sunrise Swim. The pattern is available on Ravelry and Payhip.

Flo is wearing the Teranika pullover
