Would you like to join us for a season of vibrant colour and creative play? Nods. Then read on as this summer season we are all about dramatic splashes of colour and deliciously soft yarns. Towards the end of 2023, I had a live over on YouTube, where I was chatting with our community about things I would like to learn in 2024. One technique that stuck with me was embroidery, specifically embroidering on hand-knits. Many of you agreed that this was a skill that you would like to try in 2024 and so, this is how the summer season of our club was born. I’ve long been fascinated with embroidery and ..read more

We can’t quite believe that it’s time for our second Celtic Knits Club installment! The Ceilte Cowl is Eimear Earley’s contribution to this year’s Celtic Knits Club. A design inspired by a distant horizon where stories become cables. Ceilte (Irish for ‘hidden’, pronounced ‘kel-teh’ or ‘kel-tche’ depending on dialect) features a cabled panel at the front, with garter stitch to the back. The pattern makes a generous sized cowl, intended to provide coverage across the wearer’s front. We asked Eimear to share her inspiration for the design. In true Eimear fashion, she made herself a cuppa and wro ..read more

Have you heard of Knit Stars? Over the last few years, I’ve been aware of Knit Stars in the background. It seemed like a really interesting idea. From the comfort of your own home, you get to travel the world virtually and meet all these wonderful knitting instructors. You get to see their spaces and their lives outside of knitting. Learn about their inspirations and designs as well as taking a masterclass with them. But this year is different. This year Knit Stars CEO and founder Shelley Brander asked if I’d like to be part of their ninth season: ‘Permission to Shine‘. As you can probably im ..read more

A Delectable Spring Lace Shawl by Bristol Ivy | Seasons Knitting Club
Carol Feller
by carol
2M ago
I am in love. This year our spring seasons pattern is the Fennel Shawl and was designed by Bristol Ivy. The beautifully soft ‘Angel Sock’ yarn paired with the subtle lace pattern is a match made in heaven. This is the style of lace I really love. The knitting flows from one motif into another seamlessly and feels really cohesive. As a shawl, it’s also deceptive. The stitch patterns and charts look complex, but each stitch pattern builds on the previous one, so once you’ve mastered the first repeated stitch, you know that you’ll be able to do everything in the shawl. If you are new to lace pat ..read more

Short Row Colorwork Knitting with Woolly Wormhead
Carol Feller
by Nadia Seaver

Woolly and I have been friends for a VERY long time. We immediately clicked. Perhaps it’s because we both have engineering backgrounds, which add a distinctive style to our knitting patterns. You can see why short rows are such a huge element in both of our designs. They allow you to change the shape of your knitting without ever changing the stitch count. That’s a little bit of knitting magic, right? So, last year when they asked me to be part of their Short Row Colourwork book, I jumped at the chance. About Woolly Wormhead & Short Rows Woolly Wormhead has been playing with combining colo ..read more

Oh, and it’s got saddle shoulders, set-in sleeves and, as always, some interesting construction methods. Sound good? Then let’s dive right in!

It’s always exciting to come to the end of a mystery knit-along because I can finally reveal the completed shawl to you! I’d love to tell you all the nitty-gritty details about the shawl as well as explaining my process of putting a mystery design together. Whether the pattern is a mystery or not, what is always most important is that you will love and wear your finished knit. Pattern Design for Mystery Knit-alongs. Creating a design for a mystery knit-along has many challenges. The design needs to be both a cohesive whole and also have several distinct sections that can be released as ‘clues ..read more

It’s always exciting to launch the first patterns for the Celtic Knits Club. I get to play with the brand new colours, work with cables and translate the club’s inspiration into my knitting. I didn’t want to play favourites, so I used both yarn colour options for these installment samples. The Sherkin Hat is knit in the ‘Jade’ colour and the Sherkin Mitts were knit in the ‘Lime’. I love seeing how colours develop, moving from skein to needle. There is so often an unexpected surprise! Island Inspiration This year, the islands of Ireland inspired the Celtic Knits Club. In this accessory set, I w ..read more

Have you ever wondered what would happen if I knit another designer’s cabled patterns? You did, didn’t you! Then look no further than our 2024 Blanket Club! This year we will be joined by Thea Colman, a designer I’ve got huge admiration for. Her wearable designs and mastery of cables are out of this world and I can’t wait to share the textured cabled aesthetic she has brought to our Blanket Club. It’s so much fun to collaborate with other designers. We all think, design, and knit slightly differently, so it’s a big opportunity to learn for all of us!
