It’s finally here – the woolen garment high season. While our catalog is making its way to your mailbox, we thought we’d take a moment to share what’s new for us this winter. With three new pattern collections, new and returning yarns, and some fabulous new organizational tools, there’s no shortage of inspiration to be had. So cozy up, and read on!

Knit Picks Secret Heart

 

New Collections + 40% off ALL Books!

We’re excited to share our three new winter collections with you, which we think offer a fun variety of projects for various skill levels and interests. Plus, all books are currently 40% off!

 

Accents

More than just an afterthought, accessories play a big role in our wardrobes, allowing us to make a personal statement while remaining ultra-cozy. Accents offers seventeen patterns to choose from, and you’ll delight in these colorful, modern designs and straightforward stitches.

Take, for example, the Midwinter Shawl. This generously-sized triangular garment is a simple project perfect for beginning knitters while providing a fun, easy knit for those with a bit more experience. Knit in Wool of the Andes, this shawl will keep you warm in style, even on the coldest of days.

 

Crossings

Echoing the thick braids of highland shawls or the close twists of a fisherman’s pullover, the twelve sweaters and wraps in the Crossings collection reach back across years of knitting tradition with historical motifs and classic construction.

The intricate panels featured in the Plaiter Sweater are inspired by the work of corn husk plaiters. Knit in Simply Wool Worsted with traditional two stitch braids, rope cables, and single stitch lattice cables, the weaving lines of this garment mimic the interlocking fibers of the hats and baskets of that bygone craft.

 

Embrace Crochet

With modish textures and sumptuous appeal, the accessories and home decor pieces in the Embrace Crochet collection are destined to add charm and allure to your everyday life. Indulge in the sophisticated stitches of these seven projects, including stylish cowls, cold weather staples, home accents, and more!

Rows of bobble stitches in a simple chevron shape are the highlight of the Willowridge Scarf. Finished with a single crochet edging and tassels at each end, this highly textured scarf knit in Wool of the Andes Superwash Bulky is perfect for your next outdoor adventure.

 

New Tools for a New Year

Stash that swift, stow those needles, store those charts! Bring some order to your knitting life with our exclusive new cases, available in three colors.

 

Free Patterns

We’re certainly in a cozy winter mood here, because we’ve got two blanket patterns for you – just perfect for those long winter nights!

 

The Connor Throw is knit in a beautiful lace motif with a garter stitch edge.

The Love Triangles Throw consists of richly textured hexagons made with puffs, front post double crochet, and double crochet.

 

Well that about wraps it up!

Oh wait.

What about those new and returning yarns, you might ask? They’re on their way, and we’ll tell you more as soon as they’re available. So stay tuned, and stay warm out there!
