Scéal Grá

by LB Handknits

 

Worked seamlessly from the top down, this lightweight, easy-to-wear top is constructed with fitted 3/4 sleeves, relaxed bodice, and flounced hemline. The circular yoke features a delicate lace motif of drooping blossoms, elements of which are also echoed in the sleeves. All edgings are finished with i-cord, for an airy, elegant aesthetic.

3-4 skeins of Olla 4ply are used in this design.

Féile Shawl

by Justyna Lorkowska

 

Speckles and bold stripes provide a festival of fun in this striking triangular shawl. Beginning with just a few stitches at one end, the simple garter pattern emerges like a rising phoenix and flies off the needles, leaving behind a versatile wrap of colorful beauty.

Féile is the Irish word for “festival” and is pronounced fay-la. Two contrasting skeins of Fade St 4ply are used in this design.

The Westminster Wrap

by Jennifer Shiels Toland

 

This shawl is knit from the centre, top down, with arched twisted rib cables running at its centre spine echoing the arches and spires of Westminster. It is finished with a deep twisted rib border.
The Westminster wrap is extra cozy when knit in Grafton 4ply, a soft fingering blend of Merino and Cashmere that you will want to wrap up in all year round.

Stannum Mitts

by Carol Feller

 

Intricate cables on a delicately semi-solid base.

This is the Myst shade of Grafton 4ply, transformed in to the fingerless gloves of our dreams by Carol.

The pattern was commissioned by This is Knit, to celebrate their 10th year in business.

Circled 4

by Woolly Wormhead

 

Swirling slipped stitches flow seamlessly around this hat in a corkscrew spiral.

Knit sideways, using short row shaping, and finished with a grafting technique that is pure genius! Patterns like this are why we are head over heels for the Queen of Hats, Woolly Wormhead.

This is a design for the adventurous knitter, worked up with one skein of Clarendon Sock “Briar”.

Fljót

by Gillian Harkness

 

A simple one-skein shawl, with a flowing lace edge.

The perfect partner for one shimmering skein of Fade St 4ply.

Gillian Harkness creates patterns under the brand “Mina Loves Designs”, and her mission is to bring projects with interesting stitch patterns but simple construction to beginner knitters so they can learn new skills while creating accessories they’ll be proud to wear.

Camden Twist

by Playing with Fibre

 

We love using hand-dyed yarn for unique children’s knits, and the texture of Camden Tweed is perfect for this simple cabled cardigan.

Eimear has designed this garment to be knit at a firm gauge for extra durability.

We love the work of this Dublin based fibre artist. She has also designed stunning custom shawl pins for This is Knit.
