knitscene Accents 2018 Lookbook

Welcome to knitscene Accents 2018! This premiere, digital-only publication was inspired by busy lives, and the knitscene accessories you’ve been loving. Its fusion of colorful yarns, fun and interesting stitch patterns, simple techniques, and adorable styling creates a collection of 20 projects that will get you excited to cast on throughout the year.

For this issue, we wanted to give you a variety of thoughtful, quality yarns that range in fiber and retail price, so you can find something that perfectly suits you, your needs, and your style. We worked with 10 yarn companies to achieve this, and you’ll find two projects made with yarn from each yarn company in these pages. Many thanks to our yarn partners who helped make this happen: Red Heart Yarns, Bijou Basin Ranch, Sugar Bush Yarns, Harrisville Designs, Black Wolf Ranch, Simply Shetland, Jones & Vandermeer, Lorna’s Laces, Trendsetter Yarns, and Plymouth Yarn.

Additionally, we want to thank our knitting-needle sponsor, HiyaHiya North America, for recommending specific needles tailored to each project so you can get the most out of your knitting experience.

Finally, this issue is a collaboration between two editors. As we do our final proofing, Sarah Rothberg is taking stewardship of the knitscene brand as the new editor and has served as knitscene’s assistant editor for quite some time.

In classic knitscene fashion, these projects are engaging and approachable, the styling is contemporary, and the lighthearted photography will, hopefully, inspire a smile or two.


So, go ahead—take a look and see what’s in store!
