We’ve reknit a few of our favorite sweaters in different colorways and bases and the refreshed vibe has us ready for a change in seasons! This updated version of Jalapeño, by Michelle Wang, knit with a no-sleeve modification in Feliz is perfect for transitional weather. The long-sleeved version was originally knit in Silk Blend.

Fernon, by Melissa Leapman, is stunning in the Prussian Blue colorway of Milo. This sweater uses a neat technique to create dimensional ‘embossed’ cables for the front and back center panels. Centeno, by Michelle Wang, shown here in Cinnamon Alegria Grande, is rich with texture. This springy worsted weight yarn really makes the cables stand out on this beautifully designed sweater.  

New Sweater Patterns

The Haori Shrug by eri shimizu wonderfully showcases Milo’s beautiful texture. Pick up a copy of Making No.10 for the pattern. The new season of knitty launched this month and Cammac graces the cover. This unisex pattern in Silk Blend is simple yet elegant with plenty of opportunity to explore your favorite color combinations.

How adorable is this pair of Oh Baby Sweaters knit in Alegria Grande? The six month size is knit here for each. The sweater on the top is knit in new colorways Skunk (top half) and Ushuaia (bottom half).  The sweater on the bottom is knit in the new colorway Gleam. 

Jessie Maed Designs Ripple Crop Top Worsted knits up quickly in Alegria Grande! The ribbing provides plenty of stretch and plays well with a variegated colorway Flow. Our team member Sarah knit the sample photographed above with less than three skeins, she also knit the baby sweaters! 

 

Whether you choose a pullover or cardigan, stripes or variegated, sleeves or no sleeves, we hope you enjoy making your new favorite sweater this season!
