Top 5 Interweave Knits Patterns of 2018!
Happy end of 2018! I never thought we’d see the end of this year. What a relief, am I right?! Fortunately, this year did come with lots of beautiful knitting patterns. I wanted to know what you all knitted this year, so I did some poking around on Ravelry. Below I have the top five most-knitted patterns from Interweave Knits 2018 issues! Did you knit any of these patterns? Show us your finished objects!
There’s nothing like wearing a flowing, open-lace top during the hottest part of the year. The Arizona Tee from Interweave Knits Summer 2018 is a super-lightweight, oversized dress with an engaging lace pattern. The tee is knit on sizes 3 and 4 needles, but because of the wide lace, only a few skeins of yarn are needed to make any size!

It’s so fun to see these mittens knit in so many different color combinations! It can be easier to personalize a smaller project like these mittens, because choosing the right colors feels less intimidating than for something like a sweater. These mittens are double layered and only require two balls of each of the three colors of Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift (affiliate link). Find these mittens in Interweave Knits Winter 2018!

For a bigger canvas of self-expression, the Mount Lorne Pullover is a great option for two-color knitting. The yoke has a gorgeous motif, part of which is duplicated at the bottom of the body. Waist shaping makes this a more feminine version of a unisex circular yoke. Folks on Ravelry have adjusted this pattern by shortening the body, or even making cardigan versions.

This pullover is a great traditional sweater, with three-color colorwork motifs along the yoke and edges and a solid-color midriff. The close crew neck and colorwork in the wool-mohair blend keep the wearer extra warm. It seems as though you all like the colors we chose for the photography sample, as many have knit this project in the same or similar colors!

This snuggly cable sweater from Interweave Knits Fall 2018 is our most-knit pattern from 2018. It’s no wonder why—it has a gorgeous fit in luxurious yarn. I think you guys must love knitting cables. I am digging the modifications you’re making to this one—adding zippers, using the cable motif for a scarf, and extending the ribbing on the body.
