It’s new Knitty day! The winter issue is full of delights you’ll want to snuggle up with, not the least of which is the Hibernate Blanket that graces the “cover” of the issue. This giant intarsia snowflake blanket is worked in merino wool, so it will keep you warm even on the coldest of winter nights.
Other patterns that stand out to me include the Idunn Cardigan, a pretty yoked cardi worked from the top down in Lopi yarn; the cabled Kittiwake Cardigan that has an almost cowl-like neckline; the Chinmaera Socks, which use slip stitches to show off a pretty hand-painted yarn and have a cool cable pattern that runs down the side of the leg and foot; and the Sallah Cowl, another project for hand-painted sock yarn, it uses twisted stitches to show off the colors to full effect and is actually a pretty quick and easy project.
Remember that because this issue was just released, these pages may be loading slowly. Check it out and let me know what you’re itching to cast on. Oh, and don’t forget to check out Franklin Habit’s Templeton Square project — it involves a design contest.
