We all know that you can easily spend endless hours pouring over the patterns on Ravelry trying to decide what to knit or crochet next. One of the best perks of working at a yarn shop, in my humble opinion, is that this time spent can be considered “research.” So, we’ve gathered some of the newest patterns that popped up on Ravelry that we’re really excited about to share with all of you!
First up is this fun and funky pull over by Amy Miller, called Princess Fiona. This top-down wonder has an offset lace panel that gives this pullover a pretty cool look. The pattern calls for a sport weight yarn, and we think this pullover would look amazing in NFC Studio Sport or The Fiberists Audubon Sport.
Mollie Woodworth has provided us with an awesome sweater to pair with CustomFit. Her recipe, Oda al Limón, offers an updated take on a cabled pullover. The recipe suggests using a DK weight yarn, and Hedgehog Fibres Blue Faced DK would make an amazing addition to anyone’s sweater drawer. That being said, because it is a CustomFit recipe you could easily move down to sport weight yarn or up to a thinner worsted (the beauty of gauge swatching!).
For those of you looking for a fun shrug to pair with your summer dresses, Hannah Fettig just published Ella. This light and airy cardigan would be an awesome addition to anyone’s wardrobe. It would look lovely in The Fibre Company’s Meadow Lace.
Anne Hanson has released this awesome hat and fingerless mitt set, which would be fun for this coming fall. The Wheaten Cap and the Wheaten Fingerless Gloves offer an interesting cable and lace combo that gives each of the designs a lovely texture. It would make an interesting knit, and they each call for Brooklyn Tweed Loft. For those of you who might want superwash accessories, Miss Babs Yummy 2-Ply and NFC Studio Sock make great hand-dyed alternatives.
That’s all for this week’s pattern round up – tune in next Wednesday for more awesome Ravelry finds!
