New Favorites: Texture, please!

New Favorites: Texture, please! (knitting patterns)

This happens every time I’ve been knitting stockinette for weeks on end: I am dying for a cable or a juicy knit-purl stitch pattern! Any of these would do quite nicely:

TOP: Tallervo cardigan by Sari Nordlund, cables so plump you could lose small objects in them

MIDDLE LEFT: Starlight and Mischief Hat by Lavanya Patricella, straightforward and satisfying cables that do an about-face

MIDDLE RIGHT: The Stanley cardigan by Vanessa Pellisa, richly geometric knit-purl texture

BOTTOM: Oleander Reversible Hat by Laura Chau, simple reversible cables that look great and keep those synapses firing

  1. It amazes me how PomPom can produce such great patterns issue after issue! That cable sweater is lovely.
    And I also love the reversible hat – that is going to go on my needles ASAP, I’ve been needing a new hat desperately.

  2. Stockinette certainly helps a project zoom along, but it can be mind-numbing after awhile. I’ll be casting on Anne Hanson’s Ivar cardigan soon-ish. Just the right amount of stockinette and cables to keep my attention without going into stockinette zone-out mode.

    Lavanya designs such gorgeous hats. Never can resist her patterns!

  3. Thank you so much, Karen! I am very happy that you like my new pattern. I feel very honored to be featured among such wonderful designers!!
