Pattern Inspiration: Plumage

image

Kim Drigg’s pattern inspiration comes from the ‘V’ shaped feathers of her cockatiel, Merle. Plumage takes flight immediately, carrying us along for the ride with each stitch, while new sock base Knitologie Incline Sock (75% Superwash Merino, 25% Nylon) shines in this month’s Chill Out colorway, Pygmy Tyrant. The stitches used create the illusion of feathers, and are cleverly paired with an Eye...

Pattern Inspiration: Ringleader

Raising hands high into the air, the Ringmistress draws everyone’s attention to the center ring as the majestic elephant parade begins! Hannah Thiessen’s Ringleader hand warmers capture our attention. How can you resist these faux cables, from the very first opening CO stitch to the final BO? 

This month’s KCM color way Pachyderm is a delicious navy blue. The depth of color teamed with the cables...

Based on a scalene triangle, making it large enough to easily wrapping around your shoulders and then some. The delicate lace sits atop each solid area like the crest of a wave as the tide gently rolls in to shore. Choose your...

This whimsical trailing cable pattern catches the eye and teases us with each stitch to keep going, like sprinkles on ice cream and playing with puppies at the same time: sheer delight.

Inspiration: Stratified Socks

“Happiness is held in the seed and expressed in the flower it produces.” What a lovely image to describe Kristy’s pattern. The stitches in this pattern remind us of soil, seeds and flowers. Each stitch is placed carefully within the pattern, stitch-by-stitch as if seeking the sun to ultimately bloom into these beautiful socks. The yarn provides the “soil” for her stitches. As every gardener knows,...

Inspiration: Squeezed Citrus Socks

image

How quick can we cast on these socks? The variegation of the yarn and the way Sarah combines twisted stitches, knits and purls creates a textural and visual interaction that brings excitement with each stitch without overwhelming you. The touch of cashmere adds warmth and softness for comfort, and the choice of stitches help to provide that much needed “snug fit”. Pick these socks up as part of...

March winds and April showers bring May flowers. With March comes the end of winter and the beginning of the blooming season, with flowers, leaves, bees and bright colors all over the countryside once again. Autumn and its beautiful colors are a promise of snowy and cold months ahead, and an invitation to wander around, enjoying the last few...
