You couldn't possibly think we only had 8 patterns for our Fall 2021 Pattern Collection - of course not! We've got eight more that we're so excited to share! You can see all the patterns on Ravelry or our Project Gallery.
Let's start with the accessories: we've got one shawl, one cowl and two wraps that are all very enticing projects.
Lana Jois' Magnolia Shawl is the perfect project to show off a gradient set (although we think it will look amazing in a monochromatic color as well). The triangular and asymmetric shawl incorporates an all-over lace pattern and a scalloped edge along one side, creating a versatile wrap that transitions from later summer to fall and into winter. You can find the Magnolia Shawl on Ravelry, and our sample was knit in a Yummy 2-Ply gradient set in Beanstalk.
Michael Harrigan's Starry Sea wrap is a rectangular wrap worked from one long edge to the other and features both Stars and Rippled Waves color-change/slip-stitch patterns worked in two colors. It is a design suitable for a man’s wide scarf or a unisex wrap, and is a relatively easy knit that’s accessible to confident beginners. The piece may be made longer if the knitter so chooses. Starry Sea is available on Ravelry, and is knit in Caroline, in Quicksilver and Denim.
The Penmarric Cowl by Robynn Weldon uses several simple stitch patterns and rotates them through each of three colorways, allowing each yarn to shine. The entire cowl is worked on the bias, which allows you to use every last bit of yarn. The resulting generously sized cowl looks equally wonderful worn at its full length, or double wrapped for warmth. The Penmarric Cowl is knit in three colors of Yowza. We used a Yowza Mini Trio - Billy Button, Blackwatch, and Lost Treasure for our sample. The Penmarric Cowl pattern is available on Ravelry and Payhip.
Backsplash by Helen Cosgrove-Davies
was inspired by Helen's favorite things to see when she visits kitchens. Helen loves all different kinds of tiles: hand crafted with flowers or animals, iridescent ones, and the gorgeous geometric blue design her friend picked for her newly remodeled kitchen. Just as a small portion of tile can tie a kitchen together; this cowl will brighten your outfit and draw attention to itself without overpowering the rest of your look. Backsplash is available on Ravelry, and is knit in 3 colors of Yummy 2-Ply Toes
--she chose White Peppercorn, Oregon Mist, and Spiny.
The Backsplash Cowl pattern is available on Ravelry and Payhip.
We also have two ponchos and two sweaters in the second part of this collection.
Betsy Beach's What is Hip is a cute color block crop poncho with twisted fringe for a nice finish and a fun attitude. Easy lace and eyelet sections add depth, texture, and variety. The fringe is created using the unravel method, a simple technique resulting in consistent lengths to twist. Versatile styling allows you to wear the garment as a boat neck or V-neck, resulting in a different appearance depending on which you prefer. What is Hip is available on Ravelry
, and we knit our sample in Tarte
The Lituma Poncho by Beatriz Rubio
is worked top-down, completely seamlessly and in-the-round, with a generous turtle neck, in a combination of a leaf motif lace and bobbles pattern. The increases, decreases and yarn overs of the lace pattern, as well as the bobbles, are only worked on odd rounds, making every even round a rest. The pattern is named for Lituma, a fictional character created by Nobel prize-winning Peruvian author Mario Vargas Llosa. Lituma appears as the protagonist in many novels including Death in the Andes, considered by many to be one of the best novels of the 20th century. Vargas Llosa's works are set mostly in Peru and other Latin American countries, challenging the inadequacies and unfairness of society, and mixing historical facts with comedy, tragedy and heartbreak.
Bear Hug is a relaxed, seamless, top-down pullover made in a simple but interesting beaded rib stitch that creates a very soft fabric—wearing it feels like a warm hug. You can work the body with hip shaping or straight. Finish your sweater with a loose turtleneck or a neckband, and make it just the way you like it. Bear Hug is knit in Yowza
, and the pattern can be found on Ravelry
Scales and Shells Pullover by Jennifer Weissman
evokes her childhood memories of beach walks and collecting seashells. The curves of scales and shells flow around its textured yoke, while pebbly ridges decorate its hems. The combination of silk mohair with fingering yarn evokes sun-washed coastal colors while producing a garment that is luxurious and warm, yet airy.
Scales and Shells is knitted from the neck down, and incorporates stylish touches like a graceful scooped neckline, optional princess-seam shaping at the waist, and gently puffed sleeves create a sweater that is both flattering and sophisticated, one that you will reach for again and again.
Our sample is knit in Yummy 2-Ply and Moonglow (held together). Both are in the Atik colorway. The pattern is available on Ravelry.
