Friday Favourites

This weeks pattern favourites go to…

1) Seven Sisters Pullover by Mari Chiba

A copy of Interweave Knits fell upon my desk this week and I noticed this sweater straight away.   I love that faux rib pattern that spirals around the back, and the way it fits around the shoulders.  I’ve been a follower of Mari’s blog for a while, too, which is always full of lovely photographs and patterns.

2) The Shephard Hoodie by Kate Davies

This looks super squishy, cosy and slouchy, and I should love to hide in that hood! I like how the cables twist around eachother too, it looks like a really fun knit.

3) Tyrolean by Ellen Gill

Yes I’m biased as Ellen is my friend, but there’s no denying that this is a gorgeous cardigan! Plus I got to try it on for size before Ellen handed it in to the mag and it fitted me perfectly, so this is definately in my queue!  Ellen provided 3 different chart patterns for the front, and I haven’t decided on my favourite yet, they all look lush.

Friday Favourites…

I thought I’d try and make a regular thing of some of the patterns out there I’m loving at the moment, so here goes..

Trigonometric Socks by Maria Naslund for Twist Collective. The pattern on the socks is gorgeous, and I love the bright yellow!

Peabody by Leila Raabe for Brooklyn Tweed – This sweater design has been around for a while, but I love the pattern detail in it and I’m really drawn to this autumnal burnt orange.

Kotiya by Alex Tinsley, a mix between an earflap hat, a slouch and a bonnet.  I really have no need for more hats but this is cute!
