I love that the knitting world is always ready with endless possibilities! Every time that it seems like there are no more new hats or scarves or sweaters to be made, another magazine or book comes out with a new batch of patterns. Whether it’s a new twist on an old design or something completely new, the new Knitscene doesn’t disappoint.
I am most enamored with the cover sweater, the Camille Cardigan, as it looks warm and snuggly, and is knit in SUPER BULKY yarn so it will take no time at all. Who doesn’t love a fast sweater project? The lace panels in this cardigan give it a feminine look, even though the yarn is big. Knit this up in Peruvia Quick, and it will be a great layering piece to add to your work wardrobe, or a perfect at home drinking tea sweater.
Speaking of layering, I can hardly leave my house without a cowl these days. It’s a much better answer to the chill in the air than giving up and pulling out my winter coat. If you are also looking for a way to stay warm without the bulk (or even just a new, pretty accessory), check out the Maryse Cowl. My favorite feature of this garment is that it’s reversible, so it will always look great! Work it up in a squishy hand dyed worsted from Neighborhood Fiber Company or Dragonfly Fibers and you’ll be the envy of all your friends.
I find it to be true that no knitter can have enough hats, which good because the Lucy Hat is absolutely adorable! It’s hard not to love a sweet, vintage style cloche that will go with everything. It is constructed using a short row, fold-over brim to keep you interested. There are tons of options for yarn with this hat as well. A solid, machine dyed yarn like Zara 8 will give you a timeless classic, and a bright hand dye like Neighborhood Fiber Co Studio Worsted will give you an awesome pop of color on a dreary winter day.
