The Winter 2018 issue of Twist Collective is finally here and full of gorgeous knitting patterns for sweaters, hats, scarves, and mittens! But how do you choose what to knit first? I pulled five of my favorite patterns from the new issue to help give you some inspiration and get started on some new projects in 2018! Do you need some creative accountability? Check out Marykate’s post on the #WEBSFiberFollowThrough and join us on social media for a year of fiber fun!

Beringer Pullover Sweater Kit

Twist Collective Beringer Knit Pullover Sweater Pattern

Designed by Quenna Lee

Who doesn’t love a gorgeous sweater in a fun, tweedy yarn? This sweater immediately stood out to me as a classic when I first flipped through the new Twist issue. I love the simple cables up the front and the pretty details at the cuff and hemline. Universal Yarn Deluxe Worsted Tweed Superwash also comes in the cutest color palette! It reminds me of the fun speckled yarns that are all the rage right now, but in a more subtle aesthetic.

Thunderbolt Bottom Up Sweater Pattern

Designed by Cheryl Burke

I am absolutely smitten with the colorwork on the yoke of the Thunderbolt sweater! This is for all you color lovers out there. It’s another pullover knit from the bottom up with some short row shaping at the back of the neck to give the collar some additional shaping. The fun pattern is achieved with rows of mirrored left and right leaning ribbing, which should also make for some fun knitting after working the stockinette body and sleeves. Knit up in Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool this sweater is also guaranteed to be super soft! (And since I’m the model in this picture, I can vouch for that!)

Cabrillo Knit Hat, Mittens, & Cowl Set

Twist Collective Cabrillo Knit Hat Mittens Cowl Pattern

Designed by Juliana Lustenader

The adorable Cabrillo set is so soft and will knit up in a flash in the gorgeously bulky Fibre Co.’s Tundra! The kit comes with the colors pictured in the finished set, but there are several beautiful combinations you can put together with Tundra! If I were going to knit this set, I would choose the three playful colors on the left: Sockeye Salmon, Snowdrift, and Blue Lagoon.

Yojimbo Knit Shawl

Twist Collective Yojimbo Knit Shawl Pattern

Designed by Nancy Vandivert

The Yojimbo shawl may be knit in Valley Yarns Charlemont, but either way it would be one of my favorite pieces in this issue. I love anything with a bold geometric motif and a fun to knit stitch pattern and Yojimbo has both! This gorgeous shawl is achieved with a slipped stitch mosaic color work pattern and finished off with a bold intarsia edge. The kit comes with the colors pictured in the finished garment, but I pulled a few more options so you could get creative and change up the blue to be whatever color would fit your wardrobe best!

Mill Creek Hat & Cowl Knitting Kit

Twist Collective Mill Creek Knit Hat Cowl Pattern

Designed by Sierra Morningstar

How cute is the playful reindeer motif on this set?! I’m definitely going to knit up a few of these for Christmas gifts next year. They’re the perfect mix of playful, cozy, and cool! It’s the perfect style for someone who loves a little bit of cutesy mixed in with their bold patterns!
