Shayna Shrug

Shayna is an exploration in subtle stitch patterns and beginner friendly knits. The shrug is a simple, large rectangle knit flat in an easy twist stitch pattern with a thick seed stitch border on the top and bottom edges. It’s then folded in half and seamed up the sides, stopping short of the fold to make the armholes. Lastly, the sleeve borders are added by picking up around the armholes and knitting in seed stitch in the round for a few inches.

Lucy Puff Stitch Scarf

This lovely scarf is reversible with wrapped cluster puff stitches set against a background of marled seed stitch. This particular pattern has the puff stitches arranged in diagonal accent stripes, but they can easily be rearranged into an all-over pattern, horizontal stripes or any design that the knitter chooses. The pink and cream yarns create a soft, subtle contrast between the puff stitches and the textured background, but it would be simple to achieve a bolder look by using colors that contrast more strongly. The selvedge stitches of the scarf are worked as twisted slip-stitches for neat edges and the twisted fringe is added with a crochet hook after knitting for a decorative finish.

Lidia Tied Fringe Shawl

A winged shawl designed big enough to be folded in the shoulders and tied around the waist for extra warmth. The addition of a double knot fringe along the top edge brings additional originality to the piece. The combination of cotton and linen will provide texture, lightness, rusticity and a subtle shine. Mostly knitted in basic double seed/moss stitch, the shawl is reversible and ends with a simple eyelet pattern.

Field of Daisies Shawl

The Field of Daisies shawl was inspired by the floral trend appearing on the runways and can bring a little bit of the color and quirk to your wardrobe. The shawl is designed with the patterning of delicate daisy motifs and simple garter stitch borders. The daisies pattern is worked at the two short ends of the shawl (option 1), but it can also be repeated throughout the shawl (option 2).

Sweet Cinnamon Wrap

Wrap yourself up to keep cozy as we head into fall and winter. This wrap is a fantastic project for newer knitters, and a great introduction to charts and patterns since the pattern always builds on the rows beneath it in a predictable way. Featuring the Cascade Yarns Aereo in Provence (just like the Harvest Poncho pattern also in this issue), this is one of our favorites for the new season.

Color Me Plaid Brioche Wrap

What makes this brioche wrap special is the fully reversible syncopated 4-color brioche design. Color changes are preceded by a group of garter stitches which make this syncopating process so easy to remember. The garter stitches are later decorated vertically, by pulling purple colored strands of yarn through the purl bumps. This beautiful piece is definitely what your closet needs this season.

Alyssum Wrap

Alyssum, named for the sweet alyssum flower that grows in the fall, is a beautiful pattern for a wrap which is double sided (both sides look similar) and stays flat. Adding fringe to both ends adds to the beauty of the design and helps it drape like a waterfall of color.
