Your 2019 Favorites from Interweave Knits
The New Year is closing in, knitters! What did you knit this year? We were able to get a grasp on some of your favorites from the beautiful Interweave Knits issues of 2019 by checking in with Ravelry. There were some gorgeous designs to choose from, and as usual, your selections are deeply on point. Let’s start with the first issue of the year…
Well, hello you beautiful creature. I’m clearly talking about the sweater, knitters. In Andrea Cull’s DNA Pullover, we see a helical spin on a traditional Aran-sweater design. Coming from the science issue, the “DNA cable” is textured with seed stitch and twisted rib to give it a three-dimensional appearance. This design is a tribute to molecular biology, with the simple and plaited cables in the center symbolizing RNA and proteins. This pullover is worked from the bottom up and back and forth in pieces and then seamed.
Irina Anikeeva’s Rose Bush Pullover is a stunner in the chosen yarn by Plymouth. This is Cammello Merino. If you guessed baby camel blended with extra-fine merino, you guessed right! Should you be able to resist the lure of this super soft fiber, you will surely not be able to resist the design itself. This pullover starts with a tubular cast-on and is worked seamlessly from the top down. The gorgeous circular yoke, short-rows, and lace-and-eyelet pattern will have you savoring every stitch.
The Kalaloch Pullover by Kate Gagnon Osborn is the ultimate in relaxing beachwear. Lace patterns knit in a cotton-wool blend make this pullover a breathable, comfortable piece. The body and sleeves are worked in the round from the bottom up to the yoke, then the pieces are joined for working the circular yoke. This looks like beach style to bar style, if you ask me. The perfect pullover for staycation or vacation.
Keep your ears and head warm, luxurious, and gorgeous with Amy Christoffers’ Firefall Toque. With just a touch of slouch, this hat features eight twisted-stitch cables that flow up from the twisted ribbing and join together beautifully at the crown. Would you knit this in anything other than Blue Sky Fibers Eco-Cashmere? If so, explain yourself.
We are ready to help you build your queue with beautiful projects that will get your needles moving, no matter the year! What will 2020 look like in the pages of Interweave Knits? Stay tuned!
