Stella Striped Bag

Stella is a knit bag that puts a spin on traditional nautical stripes. Made flat in the garter stitch, stitches are picked up along the bottom edges of the center panel to work the horizontal striped borders. Knit with nylon cord and lined with felt, this bag is sturdier than most for all your summer adventures.

Pacifica Stripes Tee

This seamless striped tee is a cool and nautical addition to your wardrobe. With stripes only halfway up the body of the piece with a couple stripes on the sleeves, this tee has more visual interest and more of a playful summer flair.

Mystic Mountains Scarf

This eye-catching, color block scarf is knit in a bias garter stitch and the result is a completely reversible accessory that is fun and meditative to make. The zigzag stitch pattern doesn’t require any complicated techniques to achieve its striking look — just the use of simple short rows, increases and decreases. Extremely versatile and easy to customize, this pattern works well with virtually any yarn, especially gradient and hand-dyed yarns, since bias garter stitch is the perfect canvas to display color variations to the greatest possible effect.

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.
