A slightly slouchy Fair Isle patterned beanie in one of my favourite colour combinations — grellow. Deep ribbing keeps things simple and streamlined from the front, with the colourful Fair Isle a beautiful surprise when you turn your head.
Knitting season is back, and what better way to celebrate that than with Knitworthy 2! Lots of you seemed to love the quick but interesting projects from last year, and some knitters even got in touch to say that they learnt some new techniques. So hopefully you’ll be excited that it’s happening all over again, and I hope that your knitworthy loved ones will be happy too!
Just like last year the collection features 8 patterns intended to make good gifts for everyone on your knitworthy list (because life's too short to knit for anyone who doesn't love what you make).
A delicate but quick to work shawl that’s perfect for layering as the days are getting cooler.
A ribbed and cabled beanie with a brim that can be worked deep enough to fold over and pull down over your ears or left shorter for a cleaner look.
Every winter wardrobe needs an understated but refined scarf. This one has enough detail to keep the knitting interesting with a geometric cable pattern worked at either end.
I’ve spent my whole life living in old buildings with draughty wooden floors — there can never be enough thick woolly socks in the wintertime. Worked in a sturdy wool nylon blend in an unusually heavy weight for a sock yarn Hugni will keep your toes warm and should hold up well to be even if you spend as much time sliding down the hallway as I did as a small child.
Fingerless mitts for the whole family with an interesting construction method that follows the shape of the hand. Simple rib and garter stitch highlight the architectural lines and show off the subtle depth of semi-solid yarns. Using only a small amount of yarn they’re an excellent way to use up leftover sock yarn.
A simple shawl featuring a fun cable design that uses Barbara Walker’s closed ring cable technique to work the cables as a horizontal panel.
I love using traditional stitch patterns in vibrant colours and dramatic gauges. This quick to knit cowl combines bold garter stitch rib with lace waves and a motif more commonly used as a detail in more complicated lace patterns.
