Marly’s Favorite Patterns 2021
2021 is almost over! To celebrate reaching the end of another year, I’ve gathered together some of my favorite patterns of the year. There are patterns I designed, patterns other Stitch Ambassadors designed, and patterns available on Yarnspirations.com. As you’re planning your projects for 2021, don’t miss these projects!
These five patterns include knit and crochet ones, and reflect patterns I published throughout the year. If you only know how to knit or only know how to crochet, the BiCrafty Bootcamps I designed will help you out!
Confetti Dots Granny Blanket
A project for the BiCrafty Bootcamp, this blanket is perfect for beginner crocheters, or anyone who wants to add a pop of color!
Love Light Gleams Stocking
Designed for the Christmas in July Stitch-Along, this knit stocking is covered in beautiful colorwork patterns!
Hidden Pocket Steeked Cardigan
I designed this knit cardigan for a knit-along with Yarnspirations in spring 2021. I designed it so new knitters can accomplish it, but there are lots of hidden details to make it fun for experienced knitters as well!
Feel the Heat Mittens
Inspired by the mittens Bernie Sanders wore at the inauguration, these patterned mittens come in both knit and crochet versions so everyone can have a pair!
Creekside Crochet Ruana
This ruana combines the Turkey Trot 2020 projects: a ruana like the knitting project, with the stitch pattern of the crochet project. The ruana has pockets so it’s the perfect layering piece!
