It’s July. And what does that mean in the knitting world? The fall knitting magazines are out! I love the fall issues with all the cozy and warm accessories and sweaters. Check it out:
- The Vogue Knitting Early Fall issue has lots to choose from. My favourite sweater pattern is the Ballet-Neck Cardigan by Suvi Simola. The lace columns and the wide ballet neck make this DK weight cardigan very pretty indeed. Another favourite is the Shoulder Cowl by Jacqueline van Dillen. This bulky weight capelet/cowl has a cozy turtleneck and chunky cable that wraps around the shoulders. Canadian designer, Holli Yeoh‘s Oversized Cowl
- Holli also has a pattern in Knit Simple Magazine‘s fall issue. Her Garter Stitch Cap pattern is perfect for gift knitting. This issue has a variety of patterns for the home, sweaters, and accessories. High on the ‘cuteness’ list is the Pumpkin Hat by Theresa Schabes. This is a must-knit for anyone with kids and there’s even an adult size!
- A big highlight for me this week is Just Enough Ruffles Light by Laura Chau. Do you remember Just Enough Ruffles? I knitted it several years ago and even blogged about it. It’s a cute scarf with a ruffled edge worked in a worsted weight yarn. The pattern is written for Malabrigo Merino Worsted. That’s what I knit mine in. This new version is written in a fingering weight. I am definitely adding this to my knitting list. It’s beautiful!
- I’m also a big fan of Amy Miller‘s work and she has a new hat pattern out this week: G14. It’s part of her Summer Accessory KAL that runs until the end of July.
- And finally, my list wouldn’t be complete this week without mentioning the beautiful new cardigan pattern from Ysolda Teague. It’s called Ishnana and I love the cable and lace panel on the back. Two different options are provided for the sleeve and front details. This is another one to add to my knitting list because I love classic fingering weight cardigan patterns and Ysolda’s patterns are always wonderful!
