Some of the hottest knitting trends

By ruiiid5

Are you interested in what’s hot in knitting right now? Want your patterns and designs to be on trend this year? Then here are some current trends to keep an eye on as inspiration for your next project:

Beanies

With winter in full swing, the classic beanie is still in vogue. Berets might have been last winter’s fad but the beanie is still as popular as ever. Choose pom-poms, ribbed designs or cables to fully customise and personalise your headwear.

Oversized

Comfort, warmth and going big are all on the agenda this winter. Oversized garments can still be stylish, whether in sweater or tunic form and can also be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

Colour Blocking

Sweaters are rocking the colour blocking look recently. Great fun can be had with colour work in knitting like combining or contrasting different shades for a fresh look.

Turtlenecks

Turtlenecks have been in and out of fashion for some time but it’s a great look to be returning to this season’s knitwear choices. Updated versions include oversized, relaxed fit and chunky yarns to bring the turtleneck fully into the 21st century.

Reds

A pop of colour is also proving to be a hit right now with knitters urged to step out of their neutral comfort zone and paint the town red! Whatever you choose to create, add a splash of drama to your collection.
