Top 5 Patterns of 2016

This time of year, many of us crafters are looking for some brand new projects to start for ourselves! So I thought I'd do a round up of our best selling patterns from 2016, both to inspire you and to see what your fellow Knit Picks lovers worked on this year! #1 - Hue Shift Afghan This is, by far, our most popular pattern year after year! And it's easy to see why - it's a super fun knit (those squares are just addicting) and looks gorgeous. It's also easy to switch colors or yarns for your own personal preference. The original is in Brava Sport while I made a version in Mighty Stitch (which I LOVE). I've also seen versions in so many creative colorways - check out the projects on Ravelry!

Baby Knits!

Our new Knits for Everybody collection couldn't have come at a better time! My sister is about to have a baby in November which means that I immediately threw out my old queue of knitting projects and cast on for every baby project I could think of. Now, it's been a long time since I've been around a baby and it's hard to remember how absolutely teeny tiny they are when they're brand new. Instead of winging it and just guesstimating the size of a newborn baby, I turned to Knits for Everybody to help me find just the right size!
