10 Amazing Projects from 2017

2017 was crammed with gorgeous knitting projects from our community! From wonderful crafts to unique designs, here are 10 amazing projects from the past 12 months!

1. Ella Jumper

So fine and delicate, we were impressed by this gossamer light Ella Jumper by Natalie! So pretty and soft, knitted in Willow & Lark’s Plume in their divine shade of Milk, to produce the ultimate fairytale fabric!

2. Flying Without Wings

Sometimes you just need to knit yourself a treat! Which is exactly what Liz Corke did when she designed this fabulousĀ bottom up crescent shaped shawl. With lace edges and three-feather motif, we loved seeing her innovation and skill take flight in this inspired creation!

3. Flowerbed

We love this lace Flowerbed stole! Using color of the moment Violet, and fine detailing, Arella Seaton’s project is a pure delight!

4. Knit Me a River


After working on smaller knitting needles, Susan was looking for a project for some easy evening knitting. This beautiful Knit Me a River scarf by Purl Soho in MillaMia Naturally Soft Aran was just the remedy!

5. Child’s Cable Jacket & Hat

Bridie L made this delightful Cable Jacket and Bobble Hat for her 2 year old grandson. The combination of honeycomb and classic cabling is so cozy, if only there was a version for the grown ups too! (Hint hint!)

6. Little Hearts Bonnet

We love this gorgeous newborn bonnet in a modern muted tone by Julie Taylor! So cute and cozy for a little bub’s first Christmas.

7. My Vanessa Jumper

We were so impressed with this beautiful Vanessa Jumper by Kelly. (Can you believe this is only her second jumper project?) We love it when members of our community share their knitting journey. We look forward to more updates from Kelly in 2018!

8. Sweet as Honey Cardigan

This Sweet as Honey Cardigan has a vintage feel that is on point for current trends! We love Iva B’s creative spin on this classic cardi – a fabulous match for a tea dress or jeans.

9. Guitar Hoodie

When Denny aka IKnitDesigns noticed Jack’s affinity for music and singing she created this fantastic Rock Star Guitar Hoodie just for him! Have a mini music fan in your world? This might just be the pattern for you!

10. Hollows Shawl

Ying Lan A did a fantastic job on this dreamy Hollows Shawl. We loved this delicate feather grey hue that shows off this rich and elegant drape!

We can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store! If you are looking for inspiration look no further then your fellow makers on our community page!
