Trend predictions for 2017!
Predicting the future may sound far-fetched, but when you live and breathe knitting patterns every day, you start to notice growing trends. Here are six predictions that we at LoveKnitting think will be extremely popular this coming year.
Stripes are quite timeless, but we’ve seen an increase in their use in everything from jumpers and sweaters to blankets and hats. If you’ve been knitting up one-color projects, stripes are a great way to start practicing colorwork.
Hand-dyed yarn makes some of the most elegant garments, and most recently we’ve seen it popping up in shawls and wraps. Here are three amazing examples!
Perfect for springtime, these muted yellow shades look great on this dress and cardigan.
For the purists out there, these patterns use only natural wool, and blend different colored wool to get different shades of yarn. These earthy tones look great in any pattern!
Oversized jumpers look great, but it’s their snuggly feel that makes them so appealing. We love the textures and cabling on these great patterns.
Baby Booties that Look Like Shoes
We love this twist on the classic baby bootie pattern. Made to look like tiny little shoes, these booties are an adorable way to keep your baby’s feet warm.
