Slip and Rise 2022 Pattern Club
Slip and Rise includes six accessory patterns all featuring double slipped designs. Design themes include cables, hearts, stripes, arches, flowers, and flakes.
Prior to publication the patterns will be tech edited and posted for testing. Each pattern will be written and charted. All will be beautifully presented in a PDF eBook. With each release the price will rise to reflect the new addition.
January, Release 1 - Shadowlands Headband: Double the warmth with Shadowlands Headband. Light filters through shades of dusk on the top while ribbing underneath adjusts for a snuggly warm fit. Contrasting cables interplay in two styles for two winter weather needs – a fashionable warm winter headband that’s great for keeping your hair in place and a built for the Northern winter width that keeps you warm and stylish!
February, Release 2 - Love Letters Cowl: What better a way to celebrate love than by creating hearts on your stitches. Ever mindful of the warmth of puppy kisses on the neck, Love Letters Cowl wraps you cozy even when your love is away from your presence. Write your Love Letters Cowl on your needles in your two favorite colors. This happy heart cowl keeps you smiling from picot cast on through winter’s frosty chill.
March, Release 3 - Vertical Hiker: Spin your stitches round and round as you hike to the crown in Vertical Hiker. This colorful design features an easy knitting trick – only one color is used per round! No floating on this trek. Choose your free style hiking pace; knit up your Vertical Hiker as a beanie or a slouchy. Vertical Hiker keeps you warm from base camp to summit and back again.
April, Release 4 - Archways: After basking in this pastoral setting, visions of these beautiful archways and the watery hues beyond beaconed the next design. Stitch your way through architectural slipped stitch cables atop a fluid background of Garter stitch. Reflections of this serene environment mimic the calm rhythm of the planned stitches.
September, Release 5 - Floral Chic: Beautiful textures in summer gardens inspired Floral Chic. From a distant glance, bold color blocking appears. As your eye is drawn closer, the stitches reveal intricate cabling textures with a peony and leaf design. Spring, Summer, and Fall, with multiple styles included, Floral Chic gives a joyful freshness to your day.
December, Release 6 - Glistening Evergreens: Drifting softly, falling gently, white clumps of snow appear speckling the landscape and changing the colors of Glistening Evergreens. Whether exploring a choose-and-cut lot for just the right Christmas tree or hiking through an evergreen wilderness, the appearance of snow dramatically changes the scene. A medley of simple slipped stitch cables over Garter stitch background creates the evergreen motif while the optional color change adds surprise and delight.
The tech edited and test knit pattern is fully written and charted. Glistening Evergreens includes directions for a cowl and a snood! Check out the blog for the quick stitch demos.
