I’m looking for new knitting skills to learn this year, and it just so happens that some of the most popular knitting patterns this year involve techniques that will be new to me. I’m still looking for the perfect pattern for each skill, but here are the three I want to try:
1. Fair Isle. Bynightcreations on Instagram has a beautiful fair isle sweater she is making with a rainbow gradiant yarn for the color. I love it!!
2. Brioche Stitch. This stitch is made of two colors of yarn, making a 3D stripe of sorts. This pattern by Charlotte Lee is the perfect example.
3. Socks. This one isn’t new to the knitting world, but it seems that everyone is back to knitting socks and that is one thing I’ve never successfully made before. (The one pair I tried to knit worked…kind of. They were waaay too big to wear). This pattern by Sister Mountain looks like a good one to start with.
