  • New Favorites: My Top 5 Patterns for Sport-Weight Yarn!

    Februar 06, 2023 3 min lesen. 1 Kommentar

    Hello lovelies,

    I just had the best time browsing Ravelry - I wanted to update our Pinterest board with new pattern suggestions for sport-weight yarn, and figured out that I could filter out patterns that have been published in 2023, aka are brand new!

    There are some real gems in there, and so I couldn't resist pulling out my top 5 and trying to match them as close as possible to one of my all-time favorite sport-weight yarn: De Rerum Natura's Ulysse.

    We also just got a big restock, so all of the beautiful colors are now back! If you haven't tried Ulysse yet, I can only highly recommend it - it's a true gauge wonder, and perfect for pure stockinette, texture and colorwork alike. I love it both for myself (my beloved Citrine is in it!) as well as for Aurin (he's been living in a cardi I knit for him out of Ulysse).

    Without further ado, let's take a look at these new favorites:

    Syringa Sweater by Meiju K-P | Ulysse in Merlot

    Syringa Sweater

    Syringa is the latest pattern by Meiju K-P, and it's the perfect casual sweater, if you ask me. A deep, but not too deep V-neck, loose-fitting body and sleeves, and a long rib to balance it all out.

    Meiju originally designed this for two yarns held together, but it works up at a perfect sport-weight gauge. Merlot, one of my all-time favorite shades, in Ulysse would be a perfect match! Depending on the size you want to knit, you need 5 (6, 6, 6, 7, 7, 7) (8, 8, 9, 10, 10, 11) skeins.

    Shocking Stripes Sweater by Tori Yu | Ulysse in Poivre Blanc and Genêt

    Shocking Stripes Sweater

    If you like a casual fit, but want something with a little more pizzazz, might I suggest Tori Yu's Shocking Stripes sweater? It's the perfect opportunity to play with all the different color combination possibilities of Ulysse!

    The stripes are not stranded colorwork, but an easy-to-accomplish two-color broken seed stitch. For a look similar to the sample, I would recommend Ulysse in Poivre Blanc and Genêt.

    Depending on the size you want to knit, you need 5, 5, 5 (6, 6, 7) (7, 8, 8) skeins of the main color, and 2, 2, 2 (2, 2, 2) (2, 3, 3) skeins of the contrasting color.

    Rose Garden Wrap by Lisa Hannes | Ulysse in Argile

    Rose Garden Wrap

    I adore a good wrap that can be worn in multiple different ways, and Lisa Hannes' Rose Garden Wrap just fits that bill! You start with one of the ribbed tips of the shawl, and work your way through a stunning cable-lace pattern that's flanked by garter ridges.

    Ulysse' Argile is super similar to the sample - but I think this wrap would look stunning in any color! You need 5 skeins for this project.

    Bee Mine! Cardigan by Roberta Rich | Ulysse in Doré and Crème Anglaise

    Bee Mine! Cardigan

    Ulysse is absolutely fantastic for kids's patterns, and so I was delighted to see this beautiful cardigan for little one's pop up in my Ravelry search. Roberta Rich's Bee Mine! is sized from 3 to 18 months, so while I won't be able to make one for Aurin, I would love to see one of you knitting it so that I can live vicariously through you!

    The cardigan uses two colors for the honeycomb and fun stripe pattern - for a look as close to the sample as possible, I would recommend Doré as the main color, and Crème Anglaise, a new-to-us pastel yellow, as the contrast color. You need 2 skeins of the main color, and 1 skein of the contrast color for all of the sizes.

    Virgília Cardigan by Patrícia Lima | Ulysse in Cacao or Quartz

    Virgilia Cardigan

    This photo stopped me in my tracks. How wonderful to see the same design on two people of different ages - and that tender love in the photo ... how special. Patrícia Lima's Virgília Cardigan was originally knit by her grandmother (right), and Patrícia adapted the design and wrote up a pattern for it. It's a super wearable V-neck cardigan with a lovely textural detail!

    I picked out two colors for this cardigan: Cacao, De Rerum Natura's new 2023 color, which is similar to Patrícia's version, and Quartz, a soft, pastel pink with grey undertones to match her grandmother's sample. Depending on the size you choose to knit, you need 5 (6, 8, 9) skeins.

    Tell me - which one is your favorite?

    Let’s wander the streets of Brussels and Paris, searching for the hidden architectural Art Nouveau gems – houses, doors, windows, street lamps. Let’s explore Berlin’s Jugendstil tile art, marvelling at the colors and shapes taking form. Let’s get lost in the work of water color artists, glass blowers, jewellers, embroidery artists, and myriads more, who dive into the shapes and curves of plants and flowers, moving, flowing, mirroring.

    What it means to be an indie knitting magazine
    What it means to be an indie knitting magazine

    We've seen dramatic changes in the knitting magazine landscape over the past 12 months: Pom Pom Quarterly ceased publication at the end of 2023, Laine sold the majority of their company to one of the biggest Finnish publishers, and Amirisu first pivoted to books, and now to an online-only media outlet. Multicraftual magazines that often included knitting patterns were equally as affected: Making pivoted to a combined app and monthly membership business model, and Taproot first changed to a preorder model, and then very abruptly closed their business (the website is offline, hence no link).

    This has left us standing as one of the very, very few indie knitting magazines in the market.
