I’ve knit a lot of stuff this year (a wrap up will come at the end of the month) but I’m never finished working on my skills or plotting out what will come next. I thought I’d share some of things things I want to knit in 2018 for myself.
I have had the Equation cardigan in my queue for a while now. I even bought gorgeous green Berroco Ultra Alpaca yarn specifically for this project…and then used it for my Angelina pullover. Oops! This time around I bought some lovely magenta Cascade 220 Superwash with this project in mind and to replace a magenta cardigan I’ve worn forever but definitely need to replace.
I have already bundled together the yarn in my stash to make the Comfort Fade cardigan. I plan on doing it in bright peach and pink shades and I cannot wait to cast this one on. This will be a perfect piece to wear from winter into spring and to throw on with any and everything in my closet. I think all the color has me the most excited.
I’m sure you’ve seen the Sunset Highway sweater all over Instagram. This is a pattern that will make me step out of my comfort zone. It is knit with fingering weight yarn AND has colorwork. This might be my biggest challenge for 2018.
Tamarack is one that I see as another staple and can almost be a transitional jacket for spring. Of course I don’t want to do this in a neutral. I plan on knitting this up in a stash of bright hot pink!
And last but not least, Gabrielle. I was interested in the summer linen weight version but didn’t want to hold two strands together, so I was excited when I saw this release. I’ve got some Berroco Vintage in my stash that might make this a nice cozy layering piece for the winter.
And a bonus pattern…
I’ve been in love with Anniversaire since I saw it on the cover of Pom Pom Quarterly. I just don’t know if I want to do that many cables! But I could always make this a pick up whenever I need a break project throughout the year. We shall see…
So this is on my 2018 knitting list, what are you planning to make for 2018?
