“Easy Relaxed Sweater” by Church Mouse Yarns and Teas

This boxy sweater from Church Mouse Yarns is one that you can knit now and wear forever. Worked from the bottom up and with positive ease, “Easy Relaxed Pullover” has a simple, ribbed crew neck, dropped shoulder construction, and full-length sleeves. Just as wearable as it is cozy, this classic sweater is knit with three strands of lace weight yarn to give it warmth and drape. The pattern is available in four adult size options.

“Nora Beanie” Woolture

Grab some DK weight yarn to knit this simple and modern knit beanie for the whole family (there are adult and child sized instructions!). With clean lines and chunky cables, this hat is worked from the bottom up and includes written instructions as well as photo tutorials. A size US 10 needle makes this hat a fast knit to ensure your head is warm during the first cold snap.

“Snowfrost” by Gretha Mensen

A simple scarf with sophisticated texture, “Snowfrost” is a scarf that will add a touch of warmth to any outfit. Worked with sport weight yarn and an artful variation of stitch patterns, the scarf is best knit in a solid color. Or, follow the designer’s lead and pick a tweed fiber to add flecks of color for added visual interest. This scarf is sized to reach 70″ in length, but it is easily adjusted.

“Gaolach” by Liz Corke

“Gaolach” is a toe-up sock that features a diagonal, all-over stitch pattern that offers stunning texture. Using a semi-solid or lightly speckled yarn adds even more interest to this pair of socks.  Designed in three different adult sizes, with fully charted and written instructions, the repetition of the stitch pattern makes it a relaxing and fun to ward off any second sock syndrome.
