Clear Ravelry Winners from Interweave Knits Spring 2019
When a new magazine flies off our busy needles and creative minds here at Interweave, we can hardly wait to see the reception on Ravelry. For Interweave Knits Spring 2019, your favorites are clear! Let’s countdown your top three choices and dig into some details to help you decide which of these rockstar projects to cast on first.
3. Thyme Hat by Sara Soloman
Oh Sara Soloman, you get us. You really do. Sara’s Thyme Hat is knitted in the round from the bottom to the crown and made with a worsted merino-yak yarn. The cables make it sing with style, and the tubular cast-on creates a stretchy brim and pro-quality finish. There is versatility here, as well. Folding the brim will lead to a clean look, while choosing not too will give you the slouchy hat style you crave.
Finished Size 18 (19)” circumference at brim and 12″ tall. Hat shown measures 18″.

2. Celosia Pullover by Amy Gunderson
A project that belies a feeling of spring, the Celosia Pullover is executed without seaming, and is worked from the top down. The charm comes in the form of lace that defines the yoke and the bottom hem. Breezy and flattering, it is hard not to imagine this garment in a light green, a subtle turquoise, or even a very light yellow. Spring has sprung within the aesthetics of this sweater, and Amy Gunderson has yet again impressed us with her classic approach to knitwear design.
