The Best of 2020: Your 25 Favorite New Patterns of the Year

Discover the most popular knitting patterns of 2020 and find your year-end project.

Did your favorite pattern make the list?

Here we are at the end of the year. It’s been an interesting one, for sure, with more than enough challenges to last most of us a long time. Throughout all of it, however, we’ve been inspired by you. So many people picked up knitting needles for the first time. Casual knitters challenged themselves, and experienced knitters tried new techniques and created new patterns. Knitting is and always has been a great way to slow down and relieve stress, pass the time, and create something useful and artistic all at once.

As the year winds down, we are excited to bring you The Best Knitting Patterns of 2020. This collection of the 25 most popular patterns of the year is just a small sample of some of the amazing designs we were fortunate to feature this year. You’ll find trendsetting designs, new variations on several classics, fun colors, cozy yarns, and, as always, complete instructions and detailed photographs so you know exactly how to bring these designs to life.

Beginners and experienced knitters alike can find something here to get started, challenge themselves, or just relax with a gorgeous pattern. Is your favorite on the list?

The Harvest Poncho has it all. It’s cozy and warm, completely reversible, richly colored, subtly textured, and it’s an easy weekend project! You can’t go wrong. The pattern starts and ends with a 2×2 ribbing edge, and the Cascade Yarns Aereo in Provence is so incredibly soft. It’s easy to understand why this is one of the top 25 patterns of the year.

The Sweet Cinnamon Wrap features the very same yarn as the Harvest Poncho, and is guaranteed to keep you warm all winter. This wrap is a fantastic project for newer knitters, and a great introduction to charts since the pattern always builds on the rows beneath it in a predictable way. This is one of our favorite patterns this year, so we’re happy to see that you love it, too!

 

 There’s no way we could put together The Best Knitting Patterns of 2020 without at least one hat in the collection. As it turns out, there are several, but the Cate Cable Hat is a fun one that includes a few special stitches to challenge your skills. The decorative knotted tie also gives you room for a little adjustment so you can find the perfect fit.

For something a little easier, try the Willing and Cable Hat. The relaxing and simple design makes for a fuss-free knit if you’re newer to color changes and cables, and it’s also a great pattern for a quick gift.

 

 As much as we all love cozy wraps and warm hats, The Best Knitting Patterns of 2020, includes a few warm weather patterns, too. The Orange You Glad Cardigan is a stockinette, boxy cropped cardigan with a round jewel neckline. The colorful beads throughout the bodice, back, and three-quarter length sleeves add a little extra bling to this vibrant design.

Another favorite is the Caribbean Waters Pullover. This design is every bit as gorgeous as it sounds. The stunning diamond wave pattern in tropical blue evokes the serenity of warm island waters. And the silk, Merino, and linen yarn is so comfortable that this top is sure to be your go-to all year around.

And, of course, each of these patterns comes with everything you need to finish your project. In fact, every pattern we publish in I Like Knitting, comes complete with:

  • A full list of all the yarns and tools you’ll need
  • Row by row instructions
  • Special stitch instructions
  • Pattern notes
  • Detailed, full-color photography
