Friday Follow-Up: Online Knitting Highlights For The Week of March 30

There have been some great knitting patterns published this week. First off, take a look at these great knitwear collections:

  • 0002479924_small2Kim Hargreaves, a long-time knitwear designer for Rowan, has a collection of 21 beautiful warm weather patterns in Echoes. Ten of them are up on Ravelry now. See all of them here. I am in love with the lightweight sweaters: Drift, Ocean, and Wave. And I also really love the sleeveless Beaches. I think I have some Kidsilk Haze in my stash. I might just start swatching for Wave….
  • Three beautiful sweaters were designed in Malabrigo yarns by Nadia Crétin-Léchenne for her Casual Friday Collection. This collection is part of the Malabrigo Freelance Pattern Project (MFPP) and uses Malabrigo Sock, Rios, and Arroyo. Beautiful!
  • One of my favourite Canadian designer teams, Tin Can Knits, has been teasing us this week with sneak peeks at their upcoming collection, Max & Bodhi’s Wardrobe. The first pattern is a cute sweater: Playdate. You can pre-order the eBook now and begin receiving the patterns as they are released. The collection will contain 6 patterns and they are sized from baby to adult.

Some individual indie designer patterns are also out this week from some of my fave designers:

  • I love Leoch from Melissa Schaschwary. It’s a light and airy worsted lace cowl/capelet that can be worn various ways. It’s perfect for spring.
  • Amy Miller‘s Vanderbilt Hat and Cowl are gorgeous in Plucky Primo Sport.
  • But my favourite for the week is Avelina by Triona Murphy. It’s a beautiful sleeveless sweater in reverse stockinette that is worked inside out in the round. Clever. And it’s beautiful with cable detailing at the neckline and hem. I am adding this one to my queue! It is simple, classic, and perfect for my summer wardrobe.

Which of these patterns is your favourite of the week?
