There were so many amazing pattern releases this month that it was very hard to narrow them down! Here are our top 7 knit and crochet pattern picks to help inspire you.
We’re kicking things off with the fantastic Dibiasky Sweater by Claire McLean, a top down circular yoke knit based on Jennifer Lawrence’s character, ‘Kate Dibiasky’ in the 2021 Netflix film ‘Don’t look up’. We think this amazing reproduction piece would look great in Retrosaria Brusca, with the complimentary deep earth tones and pops of bright colour.
The Color Pop Cardi by Michelle T. is a fun colour blocking crochet project that will definitely put a spring in your step! Use two strands of CaMaRose Snefnug held together for a super soft and super squishy cardigan.
Sometimes it’s nice to have a classic pattern on the go, and we love the simplicity of The Cuddle Sweater by Tomo Eby. This seamless construction will knit up fairly quickly in a worsted weight such as De Rerum Natura Gilliatt.
It’s no surprise that we love a pair of knitted socks here at YAK and the Taiga Socks by Lindsey Fowler are no exception! The slightly heathered tones of Onion Nettle Sock would be perfect to compliment the natural fir tree motif in these socks.
Another crochet cardigan, this time with some delightful cable detailing along the front panels. The Stella Cable Cardi by Designs by Key is made in DK eight with a 5mm hook for a slightly more open stitch. Usue Sandnes Garn Merinoull for your version.
For a classic gingham raglan with a modern twist try the Gr8 Gingham Raglan by Jessie Maed Designs. Featuring a fitted yoke an symmetrical contrast raglan seams, the pattern includes instructions for both long and short sleeve versions. We think the colour range of De Rerum Natura Ulysse would be fab for this knit – stick to complimentary tonals or go for a bold contrast.
Last but not least we have the wonderful Ondine Cardigan by Woollen Nest, an oversized cardigan with wavy balloon sleeve detailing and a charming colour gradient. Use three strands of Onion Silk + Kid Mohair to create your own cosy cardi. We think the colours Rahvid, Marsala and Bordeaux would make a beautiful ombre effect.
