It’s not all that often I link to a full newsletter from a yarn company, but in this case I think it’s worth it for you to check out the roundup of favorite patterns of the year from designers at Berroco.
They’ve kindly divided their choices among patterns you can get from them for free and those that are available in booklets, so if you’re on a budget of zero or already have some of their pattern books from this year, you’re all set. And if you have any yarn store gift certificates from the holidays to spend, you may also be all set…
One of my favorites of their favorites is Ipswich, a pretty sleeveless top with a funnel neck worked in stockinette stitch in a sparkly yarn. This would be a great top for holiday parties worked in the yarn shown, or make it in cotton or linen for a cool summer shell that’s a little more casual.
