the juniper collection
Matching accessories have become kind a big thing for me. When I’m wrapped in the warmth of a comfy hand knit hat, a cozy hand knit cowl, and toasty hand knit mitts, I like them to match, or complement each other, either by sharing the same stitch pattern or being worked in the same yarn. When my knitted accessories complement each other, either by colour, or stitch pattern, it allows each piece to stand out without competing with the other accessories that I’m wearing. Matching accessories make me look more polished and put together, even on days when I might not feel very polished or put together. So, I’m on a mission to create sets of matching knitwear accessories in my favourite colours using my favourite yarns and stitch patterns.
The Juniper collection includes socks, a cowl, hat and mitts. I chose this specific yarn because it’s one of the softest, squishiest yarns that I’ve ever had the pleasure to knit with and it feels divine against the skin. Also this bluish/purple that Nicole (the dyer at Spinnacle) created, really reminds me of the juniper berries that were on the juniper bushes outside of our house growing up.
All 4 patterns are graded for multiple sizes and are easily modified to suit your preferences. The stitch pattern is both written and charted and all patterns are needle-neutral so you can use your preferred method for working in the round.
