Where has the time gone?
Tomorrow is December and I'm still slogging through Christmas knitting. Luckily there have been lots of gorgeous patterns published this month to aid me in my dream knitting. Here are a few of my favorites.
Autumn Raglan by This.Bird.Knits
At first glance this looks like a lovely but basic cozy sweater. But then you look closer and realize it actually features brioche. And you know how we all feel about brioche these days.
Color Me In by Hanna Maciejewska
Simple sweaters with a twist continue to be a theme with this sweater knit out of fingering weight. I think this would be a great way to use up some special leftovers or a fun mini skein set.
For the Head
Autumn Smile by "Amanita" Agata Mackiewicz
Cozy cabled hats are a must as the weather turns colder. I love that this one features such a brightly colored contrasting pompom. There is yarn in my stash that is destined to become one of these.
For the Hands
Isabel Mittens by Junko Okamoto
The change in main color elevates these from yet another pair of colorwork mittens (which are already a gorgeous feat of pattern writing in every respect). What really drew me to this pattern was the photography, which is an eclectic mix of patterns, colors, and items.
For the Legs
Staghorn Leg Warmers by Nat Raedwulf
You guys know how I feel about legwarmers and these look like a great way to pair leggings with ankle boots without exposing any skin. I am dreaming of a November that looks like these.
For the Neck
Mini Mazy by Rachel Henry
This pattern features some of my favorite things -- stripes, garter, and unique color combinations. I actually saw Hundreds of Ravens (the yarn used) at SAFF in October but did not buy any because I could not justify bringing home more mini skeins without a plan. Now I already have a mission for next year!
Sunny the Snowman by Susan Claudino
Normally I am not a toy knitter, but something about these just spoke to me. Maybe it is because I have Christmas on the brain and a baby to knit for, but these just scream "KNIT ME NOW". The little ones would probably be great as little Christmas ornaments.
TARDIS Police Box Leg Warmers by Kirsten Apgar
Doctor Who. Legwarmers. And some rocking shoes to boot! Need I say more?
As always this is just a small selection of all the amazing patterns that were published this month. Do you have any favorites that I missed?
