I’ve really enjoyed working on the Apple Swizzle Hat by Thea Colman, this month’s Boost Your Knitting pattern. It’s real potato chip knitting (just one more dip stitch, then I’ll go to bed I swear!) If you’ve also been bitten by the dip stitch bug, here are a few more patterns that feature the technique!
Chamomile and Tanqueray by Thea Colman
The Chamomile fingerless mitts use a little flower dip stitch framed with a twisted stitch motif and long cosy cuffs. So adorable!
Thea has just re-released these two patterns (Chamomile and Tanqueray), and you can get either or both patterns with a whopping 50% off by using the discount code DS flowers until 30th June 2019. Thanks Thea!
Firmament by Hunter Hammersen
A beautiful collection of four hat patterns, featuring four different types of dip stitches, designed by Hunter Hammersen. The collection includes the incredibly popular Constellate Hat, (check out Jen’s excellent version), as well a mini dip stitch dictionary and notes on designing your own dip stitches! At time of writing, we have a very few copies of the print book in the online shop. You can also find the ebook on Ravelry or purchase the hat patterns individually.
Redlynch Shawl by Jen Arnall-Culliford
Jen’s gorgeous stole features leaf-like lace, an icord edging, and, that’s right, dip stitches! The pattern calls for anything between sportweight and laceweight, and I think you could knit up a really lovely summery shawl in Something to Knit With 4ply!
Like March’s technique, the tuck stitch, patterns aren’t often tagged with “dip stitch” on Ravelry, and sometimes the stitch is referred to in other ways But I’ve been keeping my eyes peeled for them … I stumbled on this shawl design in progress by Julia Parlette-Cariño over on Instagram the other day which looks like it will be a stunner! And Jen’s started a bundle on Ravelry with plenty more inspiration (do shout in the comments if you know of one we should include)!
