Vote for our next knit-along!
Yep, it's time for a new knit-along! Are you ready to vote for your favorite? Here are the choices:
The Orbs Cowl by Robin Ulrich is hot off the presses in the new issue of Knitscene Accessories. I love the drape of this cowl, and bonus—it's reversible!
This is a quick knit with a lot of impact. And knitted accessories are so popular for wearing or gifting.
The cowl is knit from a light worsted-weight yarn on size 10½ needles, and it's 21½" circumference and 12" tall. The recommended yarn is Berroco Flicker (87% baby alpaca, 8% acrylic, 5% other fibers; 189 yd [175 m]/50 g)
|This is the Pan-Am Jacket and it might just be my favorite. Ashley Rao's design is classic yet current; quintessentially modern-retro—the style that's so popular these days. And for good reason—it's so attractive and flattering!
The chevron pattern adds interest and is fun to knit, and the collar and mitered borders give the Pan-Am its retro feeling.
The jacket is knit from worsted-weight yarn on size 6 needles, and the sizing goes from 30½" to 50½" bust. The recommended yarn is Classic Elite Yarns Mountaintop Collection Crestone (100% wool; 100 yd [91 m]/1¾ oz [50 g]). Individual pattern download.
|The Off-Rib Cardigan by Stefanie Japel is a beautiful topper for any wardrobe. The high collar and well-placed ribbing are fab and I really like the three-quarter-length sleeves.
Get yourself some statement buttons and you're off to the races!
The Off-Rib is knit from worsted-weight yarn on size 7 needles, and the sizing goes from 32½" to 52" bust. The recommended yarn is Madelinetosh Tosh Merino (100% merino; 210 yd [192 m]/3½ oz [100 g]). Individual pattern download.
|Megan Goodacre's Crossed Cardigan is a wonderful warm-weather knit. The vertical lines of the allover texture mixed with gentle curves of the fronts make a lovely contrast.
This cardi gets its name from the crossover front closure and a crossover vent in back, too.
The Crossed Cardigan is knit from worsted-weight yarn on size 7 needles, and the sizing goes from 35" to 54" bust. The recommended yarn is Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton (100% organic cotton; 150 yd [137 m]/3½ oz [100 g]). Individual pattern download.
Now go to the survey and pick the one you'd most like to knit. I'll announce the winner on Friday.
