Friday Pattern Spotlight

Each Friday I will post a collection of patterns that I find interesting, creative, colorful and just plain fun.  Today I’m spot-lighting pull-over sweaters.  When it comes to sweaters and cardigans,   I love beautiful color-work, cables and simplicity.

Yesterday Nordland by Winterludes caught my eye.  This sweater has a just a touch of colorwork for interest. This one is definitely going in my queue for fall knitting!

From the designer:  Nordland is a top down sweater designed to match the Under the fir tree set for dolls! obviously, you don’t need any doll to need this sweater.  Nordland is inspired by long winter walks in the hills, when the air is so cold and the snow crunches under your feet… it’s a very easy and fast made project.

Sarah Crawford just released an awesome “guy” sweater called He Oak.  This one is pure simplicity and perfect for the manly man in your life.

From the designer:  White Gum Wool’s She Oak yarn is a beautifully heathered combination of greens, browns and russet, with a slightly felted handfeel. The simplicity of this jumper makes the most of these winter-friendly qualities: a shawl collar to pull up to block the wind or down to insulate the shoulders with another layer, mistake ribbing to add texture, a neat but comfortable fit, and classic casual styling for comfort and ease. Saddle shoulders and lots of stockinette make for a fun but quick knit.

One on my favorite designers, Heidi Kirrmaier, just released a sweet little summer top called Night Sky.  This design is knitted up in Shibui Knits Twig, a lovely sport weight yarn.  Just look at that scalloped edge, this is a must for my summer knitting!

From the designer:  This summer tee is knit seamlessly from the bottom up. Short rows are worked at the back neck, and otherwise it is knit entirely in the round. Length from underarm is 35 cm (13.75 inches) for sizes XS – L1, and 39 cm (15.25 inches) for sizes L2 – XXL. If you wish to lengthen it, you may need more yarn.
