Top 10 Pins to Inspire Your 2018 Winter Knitting

Here at Interweave headquarters in Fort Collins, Colorado, a chill is really starting to set in at last. I, for one, am ready. If the shifting trends on social media are any indication, I’m far from alone in these feelings. Let’s take a look at what’s rising on Pinterest as the metaphorical mercury drops!

Knitters like you are pinning tons of utterly cozy cabled sweaters and tunics from designers like Mary Anne Benedetto and Linda Marveng, speaking to the timeless allure of these classic designs every time the weather turns cold. But these designs each have something special that updates them, from oversized silhouettes to refined neck treatments.

The circular yoke sweater is seeing a lot of action this winter, with stranded colorwork yokes from basic to insane abounding. But we’re also seeing colorwork in other forms rise to the top, including modular knitting, intarsia, and the ever-popular, stunningly-easy slip-stitch colorwork.

Take a look at the top 10 pins from our Pinterest account, Knitting Daily, and see if you can find your next fireside project!
