Hot Right Now - August 2020

by Michelle Enerson
Every month Michelle scours Ravelry for what's "hot right now". Take a look at this month's picks and the yarns she suggests.

 

Lemon Scone At Home Cowl by Lauren Rad
Yarn: 300-400 yards of fingering – Woolfolk Tynd or Sno, 2 skeins

Lauren describes this gorgeous lace shawl as a piece to find us some joy in these odd times

 “… knitting has been such a helpful coping tool while so many of us have been spending more time at home than usual during an extremely stressful period. The summer months are picking up here in the Northern Hemisphere, and we’re all struggling with the urge to go outside and play, but I’m still doing my best to stay home as much as I can. I hope having this pattern handy will help you do so, too.”

 

Ridgeview Tee by Kerri Blumer
Yarn: 525-2070 yards of DK – Migration Journey or Juniper Moon Zooey

This simple DK weight top is perfect to throw over a dress or high waisted pants this fall. Short sleeves so you don’t get too hot and lots of amazing details to keep your attention as you knit. Two lengths mean you have plenty of options for a wardrobe staple.

 

Day Shift by Stacy Collingham
Yarn: 1100 - 2100 yards of fingering - Nebula 

This fun top is designed for mini skeins but my first thought that it would be an amazing way to show off our color gradient skeins. The design gives you an amazing figure flattering v neck which travels all the way down the front. This sweater would be an all-season top in my book!

 

Francy Shawl by Rebecca McKenzie
Yarn: 823 – 1256 yards of fingering – Migration Traveler or Dream in Color Smooshy with Cashmere

This gorgeous triangle shawl comes in three sizes so it can be made to fit any body type or mood. Choose a semi-solid for optimal stitch definition and fun. This pattern would give you hours of meditative knitting and an amazing shawl to keep you cozy this fall and winter.

If you start now, you'll be done by December.

Every summer, we attempt to get you started on your winter accessories. Some people have gifts to make. Others just need to replace a well worn hat, a lost mitten, or a scarf that no longer matches a coat.
