As with food, that potential

Hot tea and a good book, chunky yarns and baby blankets, Kate and William — some things just belong together. Add to that list the dream team of a nice glass of wine and a pair of knitting needles, and you have the ideal antidote to a long day at work.

As with food, that potential pattern can go from good to fantastic with the right inspiration—and that inspiration might just be waiting for you in an enticing chilled bottle and a tall-stemmed glass. Treat yourself to a little fun and browse our favorite pairings below.

 

  1. Purl and Pour

Pour yourself a glass of moscato and purl your way to a gorgeous short sleeve button-up. Fruity with hints of floral, a good moscato is hard to beat, particularly when paired with the sweet but elegant Serene Sips Cardigan. You will never get tired of your options with this match. Although we love the warmth of this cardigan’s earth tone yarn, you might like to mix up your colors along with your wine flavors as you decide between crisp white or sassy pink moscato (or have a glass of both if you’re so inclined).

  1. You Give Me a Riesling to Knit

Two important concerns arise when preparing for a date: what to wear and which delightful wine you want to be sipping by candlelight. We have the pairing that will take away the stress of planning: riesling and the Romantic Vineyard Top. With just the right balance of sweetness and acidity, this summery wine is a solid choice for any dinner occasion, and its quality flavor matches the classy style of this pattern. And don’t forget the dessert — riesling and cheesecake are another match made in heaven, just like you and this top.

  1. StrawberYAY

Is there really any wine more representative of summer than strawberry wine? Just like the Strawberry Wine Top, strawberry wine is sweet but tangy, a seasonal delight that will make you oh-so-glad it’s summer. The similarities don’t end with the personality of the design — both strawberry wine and this top play well with others. Make a frozen spritzer with your wine and pair your new cute top with a simple pair of jeans or a flowy skirt.

  1. Knit, Rosé, Repeat

This Lady Rosé Shawl is so elegant that you have to match it with the more complex rosés, like the syrah or tempranillo, which have additional herb and spice notes to round out the fruity flavors. With a glass of bright pink goodness by your side, you will love knitting up the lace trim and crescent shape of the shawl in preparation for your next big event. So, pour yourself a nice tall glass of nectar — no, really, all the way to the top — and enjoy a fun night in with the Lady Rosé Shawl.

  1. Say Hello to Merlot

The Wine Wave Scarf is best paired with a smooth merlot or a smoky malbec. Their full-bodied flavors will put you in the mindset to work on this stunning, one-of-a-kind pattern, while the curve of the scarf offers a fun challenge. You’ll have the best of both worlds — this fresh new look will perfectly balance that classic red wine.
