Tomorrow is World Wide Knit In Public Day (WWKIPD) and of all the days it’s important to have the perfect WIP, tomorrow is the day. Maybe you want a quick project to complete or perhaps you need a big project to complement the marathon knitting sesh you have planned with friends. Here is a round up new projects that will be fun knits and conversation starters among friends new and old.
Yume by Isabell Kramer
This seamless, top-down sweater features a feminine lace yoke design, with a classic stockinette body and customizable short or long sleeves. Knit with two lace weight strands held together, this sweet top is one that is a purposeful knit whether knit with a lightweight cotton fiber or a more sturdy wool.

Little Dinos by Susan B. Anderson
The Stuffie Queen, Susan B. Anderson, dropped her newest toy pattern – a cuddly dinosaur – just in time for the big day(s). Not only is it a fast, fun knit to start (and most likely finish) on WWKIPD, but it is also the perfect knit to get you or your dinophile friend excited for the release of the new Jurassic Park movie set to be released this month. Plus, it makes for perfect knitting group conversation, begging the answer to the question, “what will you name it?!”
Ashland Pullover by Julie Hoover
This three-color Brooklyn Tweed classic has been “restyled” in BT’s newest fiber, Peerie. Choose a palate of neutrals or make a statement with rich jewel tones, but the options are (almost) endless with the 45 available colorways. Show off your new skeins of Peerie, while knitting this attention-keeping, fun-to-knit, colorwork sweater.
