Pattern Highlights: January

We have been talking a lot about the Stitch Sprouts booklets on the blog this month, but don't think for a second that we've forgotten about the patterns released in January!

Kalliopi Aronis has released Diamonds Hood Cowl, knit in Squishy, shown below in Rootbeer. Besides the lusciously textured stitch pattern, it is also beaded for extra elegance. 

Amanda Hall at Knit Knight Designs was seeking a "balance between beauty and practicality" when designing her Balance fingerless mitts, and they certainly don't miss the mark on either count. 

Looking for a downright cozy accessory? Kirsten Kapur has a pair of mittens called Oresund. I could definitely see having multiple pairs of these in all different colors - each pair just takes 1 skein of For Better or Worsted! They are shown below in Avocado.

This cozy cowl is part of a new book by Pam Powers called Dress-to-Impress Knitted Scarves. The Petticoat Cowl is knit in Cricket, shown here in Au Natural, Seabreeze, and Herb.

And last, but certainly not least, a new sweater from Jennifer Wood! Called Rhonwen, it features fabulous cable and lace detailing. It is knit in Cricket, shown below in Clay.

Don't forget - you can find so many more patterns on Ravelry, or our Pinterest page!
