It’s hard to believe these are the fall surprises when it’s not even August yet, but the two surprise patterns just released by Knitty are great to knit now and use later (or, in the case of the socks, to use now).
The Thisbe Sock by Nancy Green is a top-down, lace and cable design with a short row heel and a design that goes into the heel flap and toe shaping, which makes them a little different from a lot of other patterns.
And Change of Heart Cowl is a sampler of sorts, offering four different stitch patterns across a long row including a cable, a lace panel and garter stitch edged with I-cord. It’s sure to keep you interested as you knit and warm as you wear it, too.‘s
