We're excited to share with you our latest collaboration with independent designers. Here are the 12 new designs from our Winter 2020 Pattern Collection - a great assortment of sweaters and accessories.
Cozy Pullover is a relaxed, seamless, top-down pullover made in stockinette stitch with garter stitch panels. It is warm and functional, thanks to a collar with overlapping fronts and drawstrings, pockets and super long sleeves with thumbholes to keep your hands toasty. Two front panels worked on the bias raise the center front and add a little interesting detail for a more experienced knitter.
Designed to show off the beauty and visual interest of hand dyed yarns, Dual Purpose gives the colors room to unfold, change, and move. The texture of this sweater is simple garter stitch, but the construction makes the stitches ‘flow’ vertically as well as horizontally. The shape is comfy and wearable, and there are little details that keep things interesting: cuffs knit on a smaller needle, a loose neck, and two colors that are highly contrasting but complementary. This sweater will take you from the couch to the market, and back again.
The round yoke of the Felicity Pullover is adorned by a contrast- color band worked in a textured pattern, inspired by silhouettes of trees covered with snow. The pullover is worked from the top down in one piece with round yoke shaping. Pick your favorite two tonal colors to make the most of the lovely texture of this sweater.
Simple cables and lace stitches come together in this lacy, motif shawl. The easily-memorized lace pattern may be worked from charts or written instructions and is perfect for some relaxed, outdoor knitting. Flower Bud is available in two sizes, and will add a touch of elegance to any outfit.
The Geribá Cardigan is a must-have piece for any wardrobe, to be worn year-round— from a chilly night by the seaside to a cozy evening by the fireplace. Worked top-down, with a classic raglan shaping, intriguing curves, and a playful collar, this sweater goes well with any outfit.
The stitch pattern used for this shawl, both the shape and its 3D quality, is reminiscent of tea cups. Giving this shawl as a present to a friend or a family member is a wonderful way to express that they are “your cup of tea.” Or if you keep it for yourself with the message that “I am my cup of tea,” it may serve for enhancing self-love and self-compassion.
On Frozen Pond features easy mosaic colorwork using only one color per round! The sweater is worked top-down, in the round, and totally seamlessly, with short rows raising the back neckline. Yoke construction is a hybrid between circular and raglan for ease of colorwork and for best fit. Short rows add a bit of length to the back section.
As we are enveloped by winter’s frosty embrace, our thoughts travel to the warmer days and blossoming gardens of springtime. This cozy colorwork sweater is a bit of brightness on a cold, gray day. Worked from the top down, short-row neck shaping forms a comfortable fit before encircling the yoke with bright blooms of daisies. Small borders of colorwork daisies adorn the edges of the sweater before working the cuffs and hem. While the chill in the air may prevent gardens from blooming, Paper Daisies are always in season.
Rib and Lace Shawl is worked sideways and shaped with asymmetrical increases which create an elongated triangle shape. Alternating stripes of squishy rib and simple lace give this shawl an interesting texture and a stylish look, and Killington’s wonderful softness and bounce will make you want to wear it all the time!
Talvine (meaning Wintertime in Estonian) is a versatile cardigan, perfect for layering in any season. It has a longer length, comfortable positive ease, and a draped neckline that will flatter many different figures. The cardigan is knitted from the top down in one piece; the simple stockinette and garter stitches combine for interesting interplay of textures and help make this a quick and easy project with minimal finishing. Thanks to the top- down construction, the length of the body and the sleeves can be easily customized to just about any length. Talvine is designed to be worn with draped open fronts, but it can be belted or fastened with a pretty shawl pin.
With its basic shape and simple repeating cable pattern, Trellis is the ideal take-along knitting project. Starting with just a couple stitches and gradually adding width as you go, you’ll soon be on your way to knitting up warmth and comfort a few rows at a time. A truly stunning end product—the perfect complement to any wardrobe.
In the quiet of winter, weeping leaves hang stubbornly to the stately beech tree. Tipped in frost, they bring a beauty to the garden when most trees are stripped bare of their foliage. When the cold winds blow, they rustle anxiously awaiting the warmth of spring when they will give up their positions to the tender growth of new life. Let this pretty wrap keep you cozy and chase away your winter blues. See how to style this garment on Ravelry or our Project Gallery!
