Those crisp New England Autumn days are quickly waning into what is sure to be another dark and cold Massachusetts winter – my FAVORITE season! This early-not-quite-wintry weather is absolute perfection for working on a new project, and with the long Thanksgiving weekend coming up and so many of us traveling, we have the perfect excuse to pick up our needles and cast on something new!

Here at WEBS, we’re constantly planning a new project, and with last month’s release of Twist Collective’s Fall 2017 issue, we have an entirely new batch of patterns to choose from – 12 in all! 

Here are some of my coworker’s picks and what they had to say about their favorite patterns from Twist Collective Fall 2017:

 

I absolutely love Belem!! The lace detail on the back and shoulders give it something special and the ribbing gives it a nice, flattering fit. Combine that with Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok and this becomes an instant favorite – even for a knitter who likes her sweaters a little on the looser side!

I really like Safdie’s relaxed and wearable look. Luma is a lovely yarn and I think this would be great to knit and wear!

Allegheny by Glenna C is my favorite because it looks so cozy and easy to wear! I love its shape, and all the great texture from the cables.

Andrea, Email Marketing Coordinator

Allegheny, Knit in Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran Tweed 

I love Helenium because pullovers are more interesting to me than cardigans, and the two-color brioche at the yoke will provide enough interest to keep me going through the stockinette body.

Amy, Education Manager

Helenium, Knit in HiKoo Kenzie

I want to knit the Espe shawl because the design is simple but visually intriguing, and because of how beautiful the gradient stripe is!

Emily, Product Manager

Espe, Knit in Freia Fine Handpaints Fingering Shawl Balls

 

And as for me, I can’t stop thinking about Bereza, a seamed pullover knit in Classic Elite Mystique. As if I need another excuse to knit with an alpaca blend . . . Bereza is bulky and warm, with a lacy cable pattern that’ll be quick to knit and super easy to pair with other items in my winter wardrobe!

And there you have it – 6 striking patterns for garments that will seamlessly fit into your winter wardrobe. What are you planning to work on this holiday weekend?
