Pattern Picks | BT Wool People Vol.8 {Knitting}

Tuesday, 18 November 2014

The new Wool People is out! There are a few patterns to be excited about, not as many as some earlier WP but still - and maybe a chance for my first (or first two) real colourwork knitting. So here are my picks for this new edition. 

The Maurits scarf knitted in the round is graphic and looks so cosy - you could have any colourwork and would really add some impact to some outfit. I have never done real colourwork knitting, and that night be a great start - the pattern mentions that it would improve my stranding technique - sounds good to me! 

The Field cardigan is probably on my pick list because I just love the whole outfit - so basically I need this cardigan, in this colour with that shirt and skinny jeans. I could also have that hair (probably do most days at the moment - but not looking as hot as the model). 
Oh that cable work looks wonderful. I think I need a new naturally dyed skein and get going. I may make a version that is between the beanie and cap version - who too small and one is too slouchy I feel. I am quite excited about the Sawmill River Hat
Esher looks like a great pattern for nursing - easy to put on when you are a bit cold and hide the nursing baby (although I do not breastfeed in public unless desperate). The pattern mentions that 'Escher flatters the figure with a colorblock triangle as the slimming focal point and deep ribbing that slants across the hips' - all the right keywords for me at the moment. 

Here are my pciks! What are yours? Are you excited about this new edition of WP? 


  1. I really like that cowl and you know is be all over that beanie.

  2. I just LOVE this new collection. I have the Maurits scarf, Bracondale and Skew on my winter wish list. BT never dissapoints.

  3. The cowl is really beautiful, and I also love Stratum, although I probably won't knit it as knitting in fingerweight yarn pretty much guarantees that I'll never finish it!
