Berenice

$10.00
Ideal for twirling across the ice or keeping warm after ballet class, this delicate top of simple lace and cables on a ground of reverse stockinette is comfortable and feather light in Loft. The modern, short-sleeved dolman shape is easy to wear (and put on all by yourself) and a smart choice to knit for fast-sprouting youngsters. Choose a pale shade like Fossil, Woodsmoke, or Snowbound to layer Berenice over any outfit—or splash out with a favorite saturated hue. Full-grown girls will triple flip at the chance to scale up this top in Shelter. Note: while we mention that it is possible to upsize the pattern for adults by using Shelter, this pattern has been written exclusively for the children’s sizing specified.

Frostpeak

$14.00
A svelte turtleneck pullover in Loft belongs at the heart of a wardrobe. Add a beautiful yoke that incorporates purl stitches for subtle texture and you’ve got a striking and timeless design. A high-contrast palette draws the eye ever deeper into the forest forms of the intricate motif. Trim tailoring and a ribbed neck that can be worn scrunched or folded make this sweater easy to dress up or down. Frostpeak is equally successful with the light and dark values reversed.

Gurnsey Wrap

$10.00
Textured patterns found on traditional fishermen’s sweaters adorn this simple and practical stole. The knitting is straightforward, accessible to the adventurous beginner. The wrap achieves its generous dimensions and fluid drape through the use of blocking wires, typically used to put knitted lace under tension as it dries to open up the stitch motifs. Wires allow for even stretching of the fabric while maintaining a crisp, straight edge on all sides.

Petal

$10.00
Pretty Petal begs for a garden party or fancy-dress tea in the dappled shade with some favorite bears. A tracery of twisted stitches and mock cables grows top down from a circular yoke. Botanical lace ornaments the shoulders, hem, and cuffs, and a dainty row of pearly buttons enhances the vintage appeal. Choose a neutral shade to complement any outfit, a soft pastel for girlish charm, or even a bold red to suit a spirited personality.

Prime Pullover

$14.00
Prime is a textural riff on our favorite boxy pullovers. Welts on the lower torso are halved by a narrow vertical element, while the yoke is in clean stockinette fabric. Exaggerated drop shoulders and just a hint of A-line shaping through the torso finesse the roomy fit, and the light warmth of Loft makes this an easy piece to incorporate into your wardrobe. Double-deep single ribbing on the hem and bracelet-length cuffs further heightens the geometry, and transitions in fabric are subtly marked by a lateral braid.

Shoji

$12.00
Wrap up two elegant ways in the same cocoon cardigan. With the ribbed edge upward, Shoji features a shawl collar, three-quarter length sleeves, and a garter hem deeply split into tails at the center back. Turn it upside down and the fronts hang with an intriguing zigzag, the sleeves bare your elbows, and the ribbing curves gracefully below hip length. The knitting is simplicity itself: a long rectangle of pebbled texture stitch folded and sewn into the final shape, with stitches picked up for the double-ribbed collar after assembly. The crisp structure of Arbor throws the stitch texture into vivid relief. Short rows add height to the collar and create the curvilinear form shown here, but may be omitted to make this garment accessible to beginners.

Color inversion sets this elegant pullover apart. A five-color Loft gradient graces the lower torso and sleeves, with a snowfall of stranded colorwork blending the transitions. The yoke is a modified raglan with novel repositioning of the decreases to form plumes of flowing stitches.
