Beyond Striped Socks: Fun Felici Knitting Patterns

We’re always excited when it’s time for more Felici! In this post, we will share some (mostly) non-sock projects made with Felici—in both fingering and worsted weights.

This fall, we released our self-striping yarn in customer favorite colorways from the archives. And in case you missed it, we also released Felici in Worsted Weight (by popular request)!

Felici Worsted in colors: (Top, from left) Aquarium, Lost Lakes, Beyond the Wall, Goth Kitty, Countess. (Bottom, from left) Rustic Cabin, Time Traveler, Chelsea, Rainbow, Punch Bug, Cloudy With a Chance of Rainbows.

Felici sock yarn is a fan favorite, and with good reason. Our self-striping yarn is spun with super-duper soft superwash Merino combined with nylon to give it the strength and softness to stand up to hard-wearing accessories like socks. But you can make much more than socks with Felici!

But First, the Socks

Okay, yes, you can make more than socks with Felici, but first we just have to get this out of the way: SOCKS!

These socks, all made in Felici Worsted, are by Ravelry user Mommajnine.

We thought you’d like to get a look at what Felici Worsted looks like knitted up as socks. These were all made by Ravelry user Mommajnine: Rustic Cabin Socks, Lost Lake Socks, and Time Traveler Socks. What do you think? They look pretty nice and squishy to us!

What else can you make from Felici?

We all know Felici is great for socks, but what else have crafters been making with Felici? Well, they’ve been making sweaters, for starters!

Felici Ornaments + Toys

Since we’re close to the holidays, it seems obvious, but ’tis the season to turn Felici into ornaments (or other winter decorations), or knit colorful toys.

All the Felici Hats

Felici is great for hats, especially when used for colorwork like in this one:

Ballot Box Beanie by Rachel Luxemburg. A black knitted hat that says "VOTE!" in rainbow repeat.

Rachel Luxemburg made the Ballot Box Beanie using Felici Worsted in Rainbow, paired with a dark gray-black worsted yarn to contrast. This pattern is Ballot Box Beanie by Jane Murison.

Rachel also cleverly alternated Felici Worsted line by line with a solid yarn to make this simple, but effective colorwork hat.

I heart Rainbows knitted hat by ravelry user LaDiDa2u.
LaDiDa2u’s I Heart Rainbows hat

This I Heart Rainbows hat was made by Ravelry user LaDiDa2u. We love the effortless style that is achieved by just letting Felici do its thing against a solid background. Pattern is i heart rainbows hat by tincanknits.

Felici for Happy Accessories

Felici is a great fit for making happy accessories. Check these out:

Totobow pattern by Rebecca Tsai on Ravelry. Knitted mitts made in faded rainbow colorwork, featuring Totoro.
Totobow mitts by Rebecca Tsai

Rebecca Tsai has knitted some beautiful Felici goods, including these simply adorable Totoro mitts paired cleverly with cream yarn to extend the striping in Felici (Punky). There is no pattern for this, but you can check out Rebecca’s Knit Picks designs as well as her Ravelry designer page.

Lazy Bats by Ravelry user elaysee

This intriguing cowl pattern is a cloud of bats by Laura Aylor, and this version is by Ravelry user elaysee, using Felici Worsted in Rustic Cabin. Here’s a flat shot so you can see the pretty texture:

We just love how the colors of Felici interact in this intriguing pattern. Elaysee used two skeins simultaneously, strategically timing the color to change after half a repeat, which creates this satisfying gradient.

Dissent Cowl by Ravelry user MaggieSqrl - a crocheted cowl resembling those worn by Ruth Bader Ginsberg
Crocheted Dissent Cowl by Ravelry user MaggieSqrl

Of course, you can also crochet with Felici, but you knew that! We love this Felici-fied version of the Dissent Cowl, made by Ravelry user MaggieSqrl using Felici Worsted in Wizard (a retired color). This pattern is Dissent Cowl (crochet) by Carissa Browning, but there’s also a knit version of this pattern as well!

So what are you waiting for? This crop of Felici is limited, and when it’s gone, it’s gone! What will you make from your Felici Sock Yarn and Felici Worsted?
