As always, Alyson has spearheaded a collection of really exciting and unconventional pieces. Holla Knits always has something that you won’t find anywhere else!

I’m really excited about this magazine because, aside from the gorgeous patterns, there is a little article by yours truly in there! I wrote a bit about learning to crochet after spending the last 10+ years as a knitter. It’s hard to go back to basics! Especially when you’re a stubborn lady like me. Keep an eye out for this photo of my friend Katie’s adorable daughter CE (and my first crochet project is in there, too) in this issue and my article will be close behind.

Sphinx Hat in Knitscene Accessories

Written by Sarah. Posted in design, FO, hat, knits, KYC Presents

Good morning, lovelies! I have been really busy, guys, but it all seems to be falling in place. I’m so excited to say that I have another pattern to share with you today! A little change of pace for me, this is an accessory. I seem to dream in sweaters but it’s a fun challenge, doing something that requires a little less labor that still packs a punch visually.

This one is called Sphinx and you can find it in the upcoming issue of Knitscene Accessories! Sphinx is a slouchy hat with colorwork and contrasting ribbing, perfect for anyone who’s intimidated by two-color knitting or anyone new to knitting in the round.

The theme for this part of the issue was all about mythology. (Have I ever mentioned that I love themes? I LOVE them. I love the problem-solving they require and I also love how much inspiration they can provide.) So I wanted to go with an Egyptian theme with these jewel tones and clay colors. I think that the Brooklyn Tweed Loft is perfect. Not only are the colors absolutely gorgeous, the heathered hues look really antique.

I’m so excited for this issue of Knitscene. Of course, the photos are just great. I love the styling. As always, I’m part of a great group of designers!

This issue of Knitscene Accessories featuring Sphinx is available for pre-order. But you can buy and download digital copy of the issue right now! So what are you waiting for?

Michelle Collar Make-a-long!

Written by Sarah. Posted in accesories, DIY, FO, knit-a-long, knits, kollabora, KYC Presents

I feel like a broken record but this week I’m getting started on two knit-a-longs! And today I want to invite you all to join me!

I’ve been going crazy over accessories recently. I’m usually a sweater girl, it must be the weather. I whipped up a pattern for a cute little collar for spring. Collars are big this season and this one is the perfect piece to add a little feminine touch to any look. It’s crazy simple to knit. The hardest part will be picking out the perfect button!

The collar is knit with Kollabora’s Like a Rolling Stone silk and baby alpaca yarn. I’m so in love! It’s super soft and delicate and the colors are great for spring. (I’d love to knit a summer top with it! Hmmm…)

Check out all of the details here including the free pattern! I’ll be updating with more instructions next Monday so there is a bit of suspense! But cast on and check back. You can find all of the supplies on Kollabora but this would make a perfect stash-busting project. Make a bunch for all of your friends!

You can join in on the fun by clicking the “Make” button on the project page. I’d love to see what you make!

How will you customize your collar? Embroidery? Buttons? Ribbons? I’d love to hear about it!
