As a member of Sweet Georgia’s soundboard, I get sneak peeks at their upcoming patterns and collections, and this week I received the new Holidays with SweetGeorgia, vol. 1. Who doesn’t love a good bit of holiday knitting? This collection features gifts that span the gamut in terms of how long they take to make (I’d say from a week to a weekend) so there’s plenty of time to Christmas and something for everyone :)
I’d like to feature my fave patterns, all of which are on my personal gifting list this year!
I love, love, love the colours. This was the first one to catch my eye (no surprises there, right?) and judging from the pattern it looks complex but is actually quite simple to make, my favourite kind of knitting.
I’m a sucker for blue-greens and also for gradient sets, so this was a perfect hit for me. Not so much into the blue-greens? SweetGeorgia has other colour options available.
Next up, Tallin by Deborah Dar Woon. I confess, I need to make this just because I’m so curious about how it folds together.
This pattern goes from a hat to a cowl, and stays closed on its own when worn as a hat. I’m wildly curious to understand how it works, but it sounds brilliant!
Ok, my favourite for last: Peninsula by M K Nance.
How beautiful are these?
I suspect they will get made… but possibly not gifted. That’s a knitters prerogative, right?
I love everything about this, the cables, the twisted stitches, it’s texturally rich. Doesn’t look like TV knitting though, and it would be my first pair of toe up, so I might save this for cosy nights on the couch this winter :)
Be sure to check out the lookbook here, there’s something for everyone, and it’s early enough in the season that you can pick more than one!
