In this post, we want to show off the beautiful interplay of colors and textures from the designs in our Winter 2021 pattern collection, so buckle up and enjoy the close-ups!
Basketweave Sweater by Rachel Gollub
Rachel Gollub's Basketweave Sweater is an oversized, easy-to-wear pullover that is destined to become your next favorite sweatshirt. The easy-to-memorize basketweave pattern showcases variegated yarn beautifully and creates a cozy, plush garment. It is a seamless, bottom-up construction with set-in sleeves and I-cord edging. It is designed to have a relaxed fit; if you like a more form-fitting style, drop down a size.
Bee Loved by Jennifer Weissman
Blossoms and bees share a precious relationship. As flowers offer bees nectar and pollen to feed their colonies, bees help plants reproduce by ferrying pollen from flower to flower.
Bee Loved celebrates this blossom and bee symbiosis with slip-stitch honeycomb cells and tiny dots of pollen (that won’t make you sneeze). This sport or fingering weight scarf is knitted from one pointed end to the other and is a great way to showcase a gorgeous skein of variegated yarn.
Floral Fade by Stephanie Lotven
As winter fades away, sweet blooms and new growth pops up everywhere. The Floral Fade cowl is a celebration of the joyful transition from winter to spring. Worked in a gradient of mini-skeins, this little cowl is color-play delight.
Floral Fade is worked seamlessly in mostly garter stitch from the top-down, and to reduce the number of purl stitches, inside out. The lace border is knit at the end, and adds a touch of sparkle to this dazzling little accessory. As you pack away your winter coat, grab knitting needles, and get ready for spring with the Floral Fade.
Forsythia Stole by Nadya Stallings
The Forsythia Stole features two distinct lace patterns of differing scale, creating an accessory that showcases the beauty of the yarn. When worn as a scarf, the forsythia lace panels stand out. When worn as a wrap, the middle section of twisted lace shines.
This rectangular wrap is worked in two panels lengthwise, then they are grafted. Each panel begins with a wide Forsythia Lace border. The center portion of the stole is worked in Twist Lace Stitch.
Lisse by Susanna IC
Inspired by the stunning tulip fields of Lisse in the Netherlands and spring flowers in general, this generously sized shawl provides interesting lace textures and a burst of vibrant color suitable for any season.
The lace pattern is simple, worked only on the right side of the project with purled wrong side rows, and the straight sides are worked with yarn over edging for easy blocking. The solid tulip motifs are combined with a simple geometric lace background, which provides visual interest on both sides of the shawl. In addition, optional beads are placed along the bottom edges for a bit of sparkle reminiscent of dew drops on flower petals.
Optimism by Lana Jois
A relaxing garter stitch shawl is livened up by an interesting construction, pretty daisy chains and lovely colors! This large yet light wrap is an easy yet fun knit!
The triangular shawl is worked sideways beginning at one tip. Increases at the edges and decreases at the center give it its asymmetric triangle shape. All pattern instructions are both charted or written.
While working the lace section, the unused yarn may be carried up the side of the work by twisting around the working yarn.
Refracted Twilight by Lisa K. Ross
As the sun goes down in the evening, the world is bathed in the glow of Refracted Twilight. This design uses mini skeins to play with the gradient colors of evening illumination, highlighted against the deep blue of the night sky. Lace chevrons dance their way across this asymmetric triangular shawl, which drapes beautifully across the shoulders when worn creating the perfect accessory for any time of day.
Superbloom Cowl by Veronica Parsons
Bold bands of color in this large, warm cowl will brighten up your winter wardrobe. This cowl is a long loop knit in the round and then joined together. The stitch pattern uses only one color at a time; the chevron eﬀect is made with slipped and dipped stitches.
Wild Flower Box Top by Elizabeth Beach
The Wild Flower Box Top is that perfect transition garment--adding warmth without bulk. Roomier than a vest, but with shoulder shaping to keep it in place, this lacy box top takes the chill off a late winter/cool spring day.
Knit Katahdin (in the Thistledown colorway) from the top down this garment features a V neck, shoulder shaping, open arms and lots of positive ease. Perfect to throw on when there’s a chill in the air and looks great over leggings, jeans or even a casual dress.
The Wildflower Box Top pattern is available on Ravelry.
