Love of Knitting just keeps stepping up it’s game with approachable, stylish pieces designed for a range of skill levels and yarns. Here are a few of our favorites from this issue:

Nurturing Cardigan, by Kristen TenDyke, from her book No-Sew Knits. Knit in a standard DK gauge of 5 stitches to the inch on a size 6, try it in Cotton Fleece Yarn, Jo Sharp Classic DK Wool Yarn, Jo Sharp New Era Merino DK Superwash Yarn, or Jo Sharp Soho Summer DK Cotton Yarn.

Hiking Henley, by Melissa Leapman. A classy and comfy henley style t-shirt, also with plus size options. With a gauge of 5 stitches to the inch, most DK or light worsted yarns will look great.

Dakini Sweater, by Kristen TenDyke. A great design, with plus size options, perfect in your favorite sport weight yarn. Try it in Jo Sharp Mulberry Silk Georgette Yarn or
Swans Island Organic Merino Ecowash Sport Yarn.

The Park Slope Top, by Mary Anne Benedetto, would be stunning in the Juniper Moon Farm Herriot Fine Yarn, which has great yardage and would drape beautifully in this dolman shape.

The Falmouth Cardigan, by Kate Gagnon Osborn, is a boxy tweedy style that would go anywhere year-round. We’d try it in the Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran Tweed Yarn for plenty of softness and rustic tweed colors.
