Introducing the Independent Designer Showcase

Inspired by the work of all the amazing independent designers we partner with, we wanted to create new ways to feature their beautiful patterns. So, we are so happy to present Independent Designer Showcases!

Beginning in February 2022, a new batch of Independent Designer Partnership (IDP) patterns will be released each month that are curated to match the time of year.

Thicket: Nature Inspired Cable Knits

Graphic reads "Thicket: Nature-Inspired Cable Knits by Knit Picks" Neisha Abdulla’s Brushwood Wrap

Here at Knit Picks we’ve made a tradition of starting the new year with a large cable collection. I’m not going to lie, these collections have always been my favorite to work on, from start to finish. When conceptualizing our first collection of 2022, I took inspiration from literally right outside my door – the earthy colors and beautiful trees of the Pacific Northwest.
