Autumn/Winter 2015 Trends: From Catwalk to Cast On

Every season we like to keep you updated with what’s trending on the catwalk and the high street so that you can create handmade garments tailored to your style as well as the current trends. Jenni talks us through what graced the catwalks and patterns to get the looks…

Thought the seventies was a thing of the past? It’s here to stay with 2015 being the year of the seventies and Autumn/Winter ruling with shades of the seventies. The high street is already teeming with pieces inspired by the trend. We’re thinking cosy cardigans, cropped high neck sweaters and a pinch of crochet.

Patterns

1. Uniform, build your own cardigan by Carrie Bostick Hoge

Autumn/Winter 2015 Trends: From Catwalk to Cast On - LoveKnitting Blog

This cardigan by Carrie Bostick Hoge gives knitters the ultimate freedom! It includes instructions for long and short body lengths, three different body shapes (fitted, A-line, or none), fitted or bell-shaped sleeves, simple or shaped neckbands, and patch or inset pockets. We love the wide sleeves style as it gives that touch of seventies glam.

2. Rowan Magazine 58

Rowan’s latest and much sought after Magazine 58 is teeming with fashion forward knitwear designs. Seventies shading and styling shines throughout and we especially love these patterns!

3. Tang Top by Sarah Hatton

High neck, sleeveless tops are all over the high-street this season and a the lace work in this pattern by Sarah Hatton nods to seventies knitwear. We’d use a cream shade and pair it with fun flared jeans.

4. The Fine Art Accessories by Rowan

Don’t forget to accessorise! We’re going for a bit of seventies style crochet with this design featured in The Fine Art Accessories by Rowan.

From the 70s we step right into the 80s, with the decade making a striking comeback. It’s all about oversized shapes in bright, jewel tones.

Patterns

1. Simply Knits by Debbie Bliss

This raglan jumper featured in Simply Knits by Debbie Bliss has a bright design that takes us right back to the 80s. We love the shape of this jumper too – not too fitted, not too baggy. Plus, its high neck puts it right on trend.

2. Abstract by Boadicea Binnerts

Autumn/Winter 2015 Trends: From Catwalk to Cast On - LoveKnitting Blog

This fun geometric Abstract pattern reminds of funky 80s prints as well as a fun pop-art sixties vibe… At this rate we’ll be forming an outfit with every era!

3. Serendipity Cables by Christine Bylsma

Autumn/Winter 2015 Trends: From Catwalk to Cast On - LoveKnitting Blog

Cables, cables, cables! You’ll be seeing them a lot this season. If you’re a cable lover you’re going to LOVE this pattern… can you count how many there are? The electric blue shade gives a perfect nod to an 80s pallete.

4. Quirky by Kim Hargreaves

The 80s was all about oversized shapes and so is 2015. A cozy collar and fitted shoulders gives it that modern edge, like this jumper in Quirky by Kim Hargreaves.

With influences from the seventies, patchwork ponchos are a must-knit this season and who doesn’t love a comfy poncho?

Patterns
