Pattern Round Up: January 2021

Can you believe it’s already 2021? The last year seems to have gone so slow yet so fast! Seen as we’re halfway through the 3rd national lockdown, some of you may be struggling for knitting inspiration so we’ve rounded up 8 of our favourite patterns from this month. We can’t wait to see what the rest of the year will have in store and we’re hopeful it will be better than the last!

First up is the lovely Mohair Me jumper by Hanna Maciejewska, an oversized jumper knitted from the top down, with two neckline options: a wide round neck or a cosy turtleneck. This jumper is made with strands of lace and fingering held together, try Onion Silk + Kid Mohair with one of out hand dyed yarns such as LITLG for the ultimate luxurious knit.

Mbalenhle is a stunning lacework jumper by Noma Ndlovu, knitted in a DK gauge with two strands of lace weight for a super open knit. This luxurious turtleneck would look amazing in the pastel tones of CaMaRose Mitnatssol – which we will be restocking next week!

The Byfeld Mittens by Ami Lowden are the perfect playful winter accessory, cables and bobbles combined with both fingerless and full mitten versions available! Try Sandnes Garn Alpakka for ultimate softness, you’ll never want to take them off!

The Fake Cable Cowl by Makenzie Alvarez is a great alternative for beginner’s who love the look of cables but don’t feel quite confident enough to try them just yet. This wonderful knit would be amazing in our YAK team favourite yarn De Rerum Natura Gilliatt for a lofty and warm winter cowl!

The Larkin Knit by Park Williams is a rainbow wonder knit, creating a bulky weight from holding strands of worsted, fingering and lace to create a gorgeous marled effect. Whilst being the perfect stash busting quick knit, this jumper would also look stunning in a mix of Alpakk Ull, Nettle Sock and Malabrigo Lace.

We’re obsessed with the stunning colourwork sweater Noctuidae by Catherine Clark. This gorgeous moth motif would look amazing in our range of Jamieson and Smith 2ply to perfectly capture the earth natural tones of this sweater.

Inspired by bare winter trees, the Albero beanie by Ying Lan Ang is the perfect beginner cables project made with only one ball of DK! Try Merinoull for a super soft, machine washable beanie.

That’s all for today! We hope this Round Up inspired you for your next project but if you want more click here to read all our patterns suggestions.
