Northwoods Pattern Collection

One of the things I love about our new pattern collection, Northwoods (and there are so many things), is how sophisticated and polished all the project are, while still being down-to-earth. They're all just so wearable, you know? And the cable stitches add a lot of interest without being overwhelming to knit. Today, I'm highlighting a couple of my favorite patterns from the collection, with some exclusive images from the photo shoot that I couldn't fit into the book.

Kitchen Collections – Crocheted Bread Warmer

A while back the Knit Picks team was given a challenge to create a pattern for the crocheted kitchen collection.  And so the Classic Kitchen Crochet Collection was born. I chose to create the Crocheted Bread Warmer. Since I'm crazy about bread and there's nothing better than warm bread or rolls, it seemed like the perfect choice for me! There are two shape options, round or square, in Cotlin yarn.

Under 100 Collections

I decided this is year to get my yarn stash under control. I have been pretty good the last year or so with using my stash for projects but then suddenly, several new skeins of yarn will find their way into my yarn closet and my bins will be overflowing again. A lot of my stash ends up being single skeins - yarn leftover from projects or a skein I just really needed to buy because it was so pretty. So when we came up with the idea of our Under 100 Collections, I was so excited - 40 patterns that all use under 100 grams of yarn!

Addison

When we first started putting together Reclaimed, Addison by Thayer Preece immediately caught my eye. Rather unusual for me, since I rarely wear dresses (jeans & occasionally a skirt are pretty much my usual clothing choices) and most of my time, cardigans are my go to choice for knitted garments. Still, I kept coming back to it.  When I was writing about Reclaimedfor the blog, I finally decided I needed to make it.
