The Ice Mountain Pullover is simply stunning. This highly-textured pattern, from Amy Gunderson, features soft colors that highlight the gorgeous Fair Isle design. This intermediate-level pattern is worked seamlessly from the bottom up, and is sure to get compliments wherever you go.
If you want to feel glamorous, don’t miss the Nouveau Year Wrap, from designer Miranda Jollie. The alpaca and silk yarn of this art deco-inspired wrap will light up the night with its subtle shimmer and the beaded edges add an extra touch of elegance. And though this lacy wrap might look like a complicated pattern, it’s perfect for beginners.
For something a little heavier, the Color Me Plaid Brioche Wrap is perfect. This design comes to us from Renate Kamm, and features a fully reversible, syncopated 4-color brioche design. Garter stitches, which are later decorated, make the syncopating process easy to remember. Large swaths of lavender and blue are interrupted with brown and vanilla stripes, making this piece a visual delight, while the acrylic, wool, and nylon yarn make it a joy to wear.
Don’t forget to keep your head warm! The Easy Ribbed Beanie, from Callie Maidhof, is a quick project to work up and it looks great on anyone. The design is simple and classic, and since it’s one color, you can opt to stay cozy in your favorite shade.
You don’t need snow to enjoy making adorable snowmen. These Wine-derful Time Snowman Bottle Cozies are just right for your whites and reds. These adorable cozies make a fabulous last-minute gift or keep them to add some atmosphere to your own home.
The December 2022 issue of I Like Knitting has the detailed instructions for these designs and then some. Get fun home accessories like the Dishes are a Breeze Beginner Dishcloths or the oh-so-cute Cappuccino Cozies. Update your winter attire with the Chamomile Pullover or the striking Queen of Hearts Dress. And get as cozy as cozy can be with Cambrie Cable Slippers or the Winter Garden Gate Throw.
Best of all, this issue of I Like Knitting comes with so much more than what’s here.
