Interweave Knits and knitscene Spring 2019 ePatterns Released!
When I was hired by Interweave about two months ago (how time flies!), one of the first things I got to assist with was preparing patterns from Interweave Knits and knitscene Spring 2019 to be uploaded for sale on our store. It was a daunting task: there are a lot of moving parts, including photos, pattern PDFs, and triple checking the names of all the patterns to make sure they match the magazine.
Having spent so much time working with both of these issues, what was I to do but fall in love with each and every pattern! Once I overcame my fear of lace-weight knitting, I cast-on Joni Coniglio’s Iris Cowl with some delightfully golden lace-weight yarn I had in my stash. Knitting this spring knitting pattern has been an absolute joy, especially since the pattern repeats are pretty instinctual once you get used to them. Plus, I learned how do a crochet-chain provisional cast-on—a must for any avid knitter.
One of my goals for the year is to knit a sweater, a feat I have never before attempted. And the Static Wick Thermal by Paula Pereira might just be the one. Knit in stylish blue and white DK, this adorable pullover reminds me of the mosaic tiles I saw patterning the floor in an Italian cathedral a few years ago. This sweater is worked from the bottom up and joined with the sleeves to work the circular yoke. It’s the perfect pullover for any avid or aspiring traveler!
The Thyme Hat by Sarah Solomon embodies everything I love about hat knitting. Knit in worsted-weight yarn with luscious cables emerging from the ribbed edge, the hat has just enough slouch in it to give it a relaxed look. I love how a well-placed cable can beautifully set off a yarn color. I’m hoping to knit it up in a deep burnt orange sometime this fall!
It is a truth universally acknowledged that I cannot resist a knit in blue and yellow. The Headwind Shawl by Jennifer Miller Comstock utterly captured my imagination. Knit in modular sections joined together, it reminds me of nothing if not a mountain stream in springtime. I can hardly wait to get my needles into some delicious lace-weight and knit my own version.
All of our our patterns from Interweave Knits and knitscene Spring 2019 are now available for individual purchase in the store! There are so many beautiful spring knitting patterns in both of these issues that I encourage you to explore them and fall in love with some of these spectacular patterns as I have.
Be sure to count your stitches!
