Top 5 Ravelry Favorites from Plum Dandi Knits
We love Plum Dandi Knits by Alicia Plummer and Melissa Schaschwary, and apparently a lot of other knitters do too! Perhaps it’s the dreamy yet simple aesthetic of these thoughtful patterns, or maybe it’s sumptuous luxury yarns drawing us in. Whatever the reason, knitters on Ravelry love these 5 patterns from Plum Dandi Knits, and we think you should sneak a peek too!
The gorgeous Genesee cardigan combines a simple stockinette body with some unexpected accents. A ribbed front band contrasts with lace motifs at hem and pocket edgings. Knit this cardi in a beautifully soft DK-weight yarn for an indulgent garment you can wear any day.
2. Bretton Woods cowl
If you’re hesitant to splurge on a decadent luxury yarn, the Bretton Woods cowl will help you take the plunge. Its fisherman’s rib pattern adds texture that highlights the yarn and creates a dramatic look. This cowl works up fast in worsted-weight yarn—you’ll be showing off your knitting as well as your great taste in yarn in no time at all.
3. High Cliff hat
Knitters know that a great hat can really make an outfit, and pom-poms are still trending big this year. The High Cliff hat features wide, bold cables that work up incredibly quickly in soft bulky yarn. This hat is a great single-skein project that you can finish before the chill of winter really hits its peak.
4. Langlade pullover
We love the simple beauty of the Langlade, and apparently Ravelers do too. This raglan tunic is worked in stockinette, with delicate lace columns traveling down the sleeves for an unexpected surprise. To knit a Langdale pullover like the one shown, work up the pattern in a soft worsted weight merino wool. Plum Dandi Knits editor Maya loved this sweater so much, she’s making one for herself already!
5. Mackinaw blanket
Knitted blankets are a commitment that deserves the perfect pattern. Ravelry knitters are falling for The Mackinaw’s elegant oversized cables. Knitted using a cozy chunky bulky-weight yarn, this throw will make a beautiful accent to any home.
The knitters of Ravelry have spoken: the most-loved patterns from Plum Dandi Knits blend simple yet refined designs with luxury yarn. We’re definitely inclined to agree.
