Guaranteed to blow your mind.
A generously sized, asymmetrical cowl worked on the bias with three different stitch patterns — a great way to show off a variegated colorway on a semisolid background and add a bit of glam rock to your neck and shoulders. The neckline is even engineered to taper a bit towards the neck to reduce the amount of bulk at the neck but still fit easily over your head.
The pattern is 40% off along with all Lyrical Knits patterns now through Nov. 26th–no code is needed on Ravelry, but use the code Thankful22 on Payhip (https://payhip.com/b/x8Hgz) . It's one of Lyrical Knits biggest sales all year, so a good time to stock up.
There’s a shortage of perfect MKALs in this world. It’d be a shame not to join in (otherwise, just give me a nice paper cut and pour lemon juice on it).
Lyrical Knits is back with a fun MKAL for a shawl designed to get you through the fire swamp of the the past few years. A “festival of stitches” type of shawl, the project will feature sword fights, shrieking eels, and a few Stitches of Unusual Sighs (with video tutorials for any atypical stitches). The pattern is on sale at a discount (no code needed) until the first clue drops on Feb. 22nd.
Lyrical Knits follows up their Fold in the Cheese hat pattern with a second Schitt’s Creek themed design: A sweater pattern called The JazzaGal. Worked from the top down, it features 3/4 sleeves and a round yoke with a cascading, teardrop lace pattern. Sized to fit anywhere from a 29″-64″ bust, it’s knit with a strand of fingering yarn held together with a strand of laceweight mohair. Not into mohair? It works nicely with a heavy DK/light worsted yarn as well.
The pattern is available on both Ravelry and Payhip at a 30% discount with the code preciouslove through Jan. 17th.
You don’t have to know how to fold broken cheese to knit this quick, slip-stitch hat that’s an homage to an infamous episode of Schitt’s Creek.
Worked up in heavy DK/light worsted weight yarn, the textured colorwork pattern is worked using only one strand of yarn at a time and slipping stitches here and there. Knit it up in two solid colors, or substitute a variegated skein or scraps for the contrasting color. There’s even a handy table to help you figure out which size to make at different stitch gauges if you want to work it to a different gauge than the pattern.
Whether it’s your first rodeo (for a top-down yoked sweater) or not, this quick knit is a terrific way to let a variegated colorway shine. The spiraling zigzag pattern uses only one strand of yarn on any given round—no stranding—and is worked by simply slipping a stitch here and there. The not-too-cropped bodice is in relaxing stockinette stitch (no purling!) and is easily lengthened if you prefer. Plus, the yoke pattern is both charted and written out line by line, so you’ve got this!
Lyrical Knits has just released a pattern for a knitted blanket you can wear: Cozy McBlanket is a blanket with sleeves, but the magic is in some cleverly placed short rows to help it curve around your shoulders and neck for a better fit than your average blanket. No more having to leave your lap blanket behind when you make the trip from your desk to the kitchen for another cup of tea.
The pattern is currently on sale at a 30% discount through Sunday, March 7th with the code wrapmeincoziness on both Ravelry and Payhip.
Lyrical Knits’ new pullover pattern features a stunning lace design, drop shoulders and no finishing. Worked from the top-down with a strand of sock yarn + mohair laceweight held together, the sweater has a lovely drape with just a touch of a halo. Sizing is to fit anywhere from a 29-60″ bust, and the pattern in on sale at 30% off through Monday, Feb. 15th with the code hanganameonyou.
Baking and knitting are two creative outlets that became sources of comfort during the pandemic. When we bake, we get a tasty treat to eat; When we knit, the finished object isn’t edible, but it keeps us warm and nourishes the soul.
Lyrical Knits’ upcoming mystery knit-a-long marries both baking and knitting in Stark Baking Mad: Great British Baking Shawl 2 — an homage to The Great British Baking Show. Like the show, the MKAL will rise to the occasion with a bit of camp, a recipe with each clue, and an occasional pun.
The mystery shawl pattern is worked with four skeins of sock yarn in three colors (two skeins of the MC, one skein each of CC1 and CC2), and preorders are available until November 10th when the first clue drops.
