There are so many inspiring new things to knit this season – here are ten colorful, contemporary knitting patterns to add to your project queue.
Sixth Degree Shawl
In case this isn’t incredibly obvious by now, I love knitting shawls. I’m obsessed with playing with the geometry possibilities, the outfit possibilities, and the chance to show off some beautiful yarn on the canvas that is a big, flat piece of knitting. This new shawl pattern began as a wee experiment with making a shawl featuring increases along one side of the work every few rows, which forms a right triangle. I love the fact that the yarn over increases are hidden in this piece’s chain edge and the wide, diagonal ribs are formed by simply alternating groups of 6 knit and purl stitches, hence the name Sixth Degree Shawl. I hope you enjoy knitting this as much as I did!

April showers bring… a new crop of gorgeous knitting patterns! In news that will surprise no one, there were a bunch of freaking amazing shawls released this month, on top of a handful of sweaters that are just so simple and elegant. Plus a pair of socks I need to cast on for every outdoorsy person in my life.
