Fall Make-along Design Winners
I'm so excited to share the Fall Make-along design winners with you today - chosen by you by popular vote! The design results this time were so surprising. What I thought would win didn't make it and vise versa. That said, I'm so thrilled about these designs and cannot wait to see them come to life. So without further ado - here are the winners AND the four bonus patterns you'll get when you sign up. Next week I'll kick off my intro video series where you'll get to learn more about our make-alongs and what sets this one apart. I'd love to hear what style you plan on making in the comments below and of course if you have any questions. Keep in mind that all you really need to have to join in is a desire and openness to learn something new. We will teach you the rest in our online classes that are yours forever, including basic knit and crochet classes where we start from zero. To be the first to know the details, sign up here.
Main MAL Design 1~ Willow Cardi by Laurel Gervitz
The Willow Cardi is a beautiful, textured cardigan that is worked flat in one piece, horizontally across the body, beginning with the right cuff and ending with the left cuff. It is worked entirely in a feather and fan lace pattern, changing colors/yarns, to create wavy stripes. This is a wonderful design for all levels of knitters, and a perfect piece for beginner lace knitters to shine. In this pattern, you'll use a mix of our Spun Cloud Light and Serenity yarns.
Main MAL Design 2 ~ Willow Wrap by Laurel Gervitz
The Willow Wrap is a colorful, textured piece to keep you warm and in style all winter long. It is worked entirely in a feather and fan lace pattern, changing colors/yarns, and creating wavy stripes. For the wrap, the cuffs are added on after the length is worked in order to achieve the best fit. There are various options for this design, as well as different ways it can be worn, making it customisable. This is a wonderful pattern for all levels of knitters, and a perfect piece for beginner lace knitters to shine. In this pattern, you'll use a mix of our Spun Cloud Light and Serenity yarns.
Main MAL Design #3: Rhinebeck Cardi by Cheryl Kubat
Meet the Rhinebeck Sweater with Detachable Collar, a cropped boxy V-neck cardigan with a unique twist-a detachable fringed collar. This stylish and versatile garment combines classic design elements with a modern touch, making it a must-have addition to any fashion-forward wardrobe. This cardigan is crafted using garter stitch, which is known for its rows of knit stitches and creates a beautifully textured fabric, giving this cardigan a cozy, yet sophisticated look. This design knits up in our Spun Cloud or Sister yarn. The color can either match the body of the sweater or you could go for the contrast option and make it in a Mini Skein Sampler Kit.
Main Design Option 4 ~ Dumpling Bag by Vanessa Reyes
AND we have one repeat and much loved project from spring, meet the Dumpling Bag designed by Vanessa Reyes! Crochet yourself the sweetest bag around in our Wildflower yarn. I especially love the shoulder strap and all the hardware details. If you've never crocheted this would be the perfect project to learn!
Bonus Design 1 ~ Desert Highway Cardi by Julia Norris
The Desert Highway Cardi is perfect blend of knit and crochet, this cardigan mixes the best of both disciplines to create a one-of-a-kind, statement piece to add to your wardrobe. A pieced mosaic of crocheted hexagons comprises the back of the cardigan, adding structure and giving our creative art yarns their chance to shine. The remainder of the cardigan is worked using Spun Cloud yarn, giving it a super cozy feeling. Don’t let the unique construction intimidate you! Beginner crocheters and knitters alike can absolutely tackle this design.
Bonus Design Option 2 ~ Desert Highway Scarf by Julia Norris
The Desert Highway Scarf is a simple, beginner-friendly pattern but the finished result screams statement! The classic crochet granny square technique gets a major glow-up in the form of a funky, geometric hexagon motif. These individual hexagons are joined together with an unusual, tapered seaming technique, giving a lace-like, airy drape to this chunky, crocheted number. The unique textures and trims of art yarn really get a chance to shine in this design and it is an opportunity to let your creativity run wild when it comes to mixing yarns!
Bonus Design Option 3 ~ Happy Dance Cardi by Amy Small
The Happy Dance Cardi is all about the Happy Dance Yarn! Embrace this fun, unique yarn in a simple, wear-everywhere design. This design has an oversized cocoon-like fit that is cozy to throw over anything. If short rows scare you or if you've never knit a sweater before, then the Happy Dance Cardi is for you. We'll tackle short rows together, in the best way, a super simple pattern in a large gauge.
Ok I think that is it!!! I'm so excited to share more about our upcoming make-along next week in a three part video series! Stay tuned. To be the first to know about the MAL, sign up for updates here.
