Happy Autumn everybody! Weirdly this year the change of season feels pretty good. We spent a lot of time yesterday planning ahead for Christmas and the holiday season and we feel completely ready to tackle the new term. I know it might seems a tad early but as Elodie recently pointed out there’s only 12 Mondays left before Christmas. Crazy right?
So in anticipation we’ve lined up a bunch of new products that will be released in between now and then. We cannot wait to share them with you. In the meantime to keep you juices flowing here are our 6 picks from September pattern releases.
We’ll start this Round Up with Catbells by Megan Nodecker. Catbells is an oversized top down jumper designed with an allover garter lace motif. This pattern would be lovely with some of the semi-solids from Malabrigo Rios.
We love the colour combination used by Felicity Ford for her Skystone Hat. Designed with Jamieson & Smith 2ply Jumper Weight, this pattern can easily be adapted by adding or removing a contrasting colours.
Continuing with hats we have the lovely Sweetpea Hat by Aksenik Lyudmila. Sweetpea is knitted in the round using the double knitting method. Double knitting is a technique which creates two layers of fabric simultaneously using only one set of needles. This result in a completely reversible piece of knitwear. Depending on the size you could get away using only two balls of Onion Nettle Sock Yarn for this project.
Next on the list is this cozy shawl published in Laine Magazine Issue 9: Winter Suns by Olga Buraya-Kefelian. Winter Suns is knitted sideways and features a fading sun motif on one side. Pair it with Lore to make it extra warm and comfy.
Hedy is an adorable children jumper designed by Dianna Walla . It is knitted seamlessly from the top down with sizes ranging from 6 months to 10 years old. The simple two tones colour work gives to this pattern a nice Autumn/Winter feel. German Town or Gilliatt would be great matches for this pattern.
We’ll finish with another stranded jumper, Manou by Isabell Kraemer . Also knitted seamlessly from the top down Manou features a matching stranded motifs around the yoke and at the hem. For this pattern we would suggest either German Town or Lore.
Until Next Time… Happy Knitting!
