What's Hot: 8 Popular Accessories to Knit Now

Aug 15, 2012

Our premiere Knitscene Accessories issue has been so well-received, we're blushing! Thanks to everyone who has responded to the issue and been inspired to make knitted accessories.

Eight patterns from Accessories in particular seem to be garnering most of the attention. Jennifer Dassau's Roam Cowl is one of the most popular. A simple lace pattern set in an infinity scarf and worked in a luxurious yarn... What could be better? Alexandra Beck's Aristida Shawl from that same story is also attracting a lot of readers. Easy lace knitting is always a plus in my book.

The Lokken Kerchief by Megi Burcl is also wildly popular on both Knitting Daily and Ravelry, and there have been some stunning finished projects. Triona Murphy's Check Slouch maybe looks more complicated than it is—the color checks are made with slipped stitches, making it a surprisingly quick knitting project.

Shawls continue to be popular with knitters, as both Denise Twum's Sunehri Shawl and Angela Tong's Putney Shawl are getting a lot of love. Both projects are knit in lovely yarns, Sunehri in highlighter-bright Malabrigo and Putney in a gorgeous singles from Green Mountain Spinnery.

Hands and feet are getting love as well, with Alexis Winslow's God's Eye Mitts and Allison Janocha's Selkie Socks catching the eyes of knitters everywhere.

What's your favorite knitting pattern from Knitscene Accessories? This issue is only available on newsstands for a couple more weeks, but you can still get it from the Interweave store in print or digital versions!

Happy knitting,

Hi Linda! I'm a little confused, as there's no brown shawl. There's a brown cowl... is that what you meant? That brown cowl is the Roam Cowl, and the text link I clicked on worked for me. Here's another link, in case.

Is that what you meant? Let me know if you were looking for a different pattern!

Just thought I would let you know that the links within your post above do not take you to the projects that they should be going to. I clicked on all of the links trying to find the brown shawl, and none of them showed up as that pattern.
