Need some inspiration for a future project? We hope this Round Up will gives you some ideas on what to cast on next!
Summer Bursts in June is a sport weight shawl which should appeal to knitters fond of brioche and subtle colour work. The lace sections lighten the whole look of the shawl, giving it a nice summer feel. Note that the two brioche panels are fairly small and could easily be tackled as a first brioche project. Stolen Stitches – Nua and the Uncommon Thread – Everyday Sport would work wonders with that pattern. If you want to recreate similar variegation within the brioche section, definitely go for the Everyday Sport.
Fairy Dust by Dani Sunshine is a seamless children cardigan knit from the top down. Yarn over increases shape the yoke to the desired chest circumference while adding some pretty lace ornaments around the yoke. The body is worked back and forth first, then stitches around the arm holes are picked up to knit the sleeves in round. On the sample shown above, Dani also used the Uncommon Thread – Everyday Sport, however Ulysse by De Rerum Natura would be a good match too.
We’ve been all over linen recently so of course we couldn’t do otherwise than featuring Ayame, a jumper pattern released in the last issue of Amirisu. Ayame is another top down pattern, knit in the round. We love the triangular lace panel at the back of the jumper which slightly reveals the upper back of the wearer. Of course for this one we would suggest you to use Kalinka by Karin Oberg. If you need some tips on how to knit with linen, have a look to the article we’ve dedicated to that topic!
Andrea Mowry has released so many good patterns those past few months, we were not surprised to find her latest design published in Wool People – Volume 11. Ronan seems to be the comfiest cardigan to wear and a nice addition to a casual – but smart – outfit. The shawl collar is worked in brioche and forms a wide set of pockets just above the hemline. Like the two previous designs, this jacket is knit seamlessly starting from the top. Gilliatt by De Rerum Natura is a light and airy woollen spun that would work perfectly in place of Shelter.
Until Next Time… Happy Knitting!
