9 Patterns for Stylish Knitted Accessories

9 Patterns for Stylish Knitted Accessories

If you’re anything like us, you’ve spent the winter months knitting up a storm of woolly jumpers, chunky scarves and cosy hats. But with spring around the corner, it’s time to turn your needles to something a bit different. We’ve cherry-picked some of our favourite knitted accessory patterns that are perfect for refreshing your spring wardrobe.

1. Party Necklace
Designer: Charmaine Fletcher
Take your new season look to the next level with a bold statement necklace from Charmaine Fletcher. The shimmery yarn and glass beads will add a touch of sparkle, while the fluffy tassel provides the perfect finish. The pattern also includes steps for a matching gift bag, making this a brilliant present for a lovely lady in your life!

2. Paper Knitted Sunhat
Designer: Jacinta Bowie
Keep cool this spring and summer with a lacy sun hat that’s the perfect accessory for sitting out in the garden. This stylish hat is knitted using a paper fibre that’s similar to raffia, which gives it its distinctly delicate look. Take the yarn on a practise run with your tension square before you start on the hat design to get to grips with its unique feel.

3. Sequin Lace Wrap
Designer: Julie Ferguson
Need to stay warm on chilly evenings but still want to look fabulous? A versatile sequinned wrap is exactly what you need. This lacy pattern can be the finishing touch to an elegant evening dress, or it can bring a bit of glam to a simple top and jeans. This sparkly cotton yarn is an excellent choice to keep you warm on blustery spring days.

4. Knitted Evening Bag
Designer: Lucinda Ganderton
No outfit is complete without a glitzy bag, and Lucinda Ganderton’s fabulous pattern is sure to add that something special to a springtime look. Create a perfect pairing by matching the colour of your yarn to your favourite evening wear, or let the bag do all the talking by wearing it with a simple black frock.

5. Lacy Spring Scarf
Designer: Charmaine Fletcher
Finish off an easy spring outfit with this lightweight scarf in a classy lace pattern. The lovely pastel shade and sparkling beads will look great with the season’s colours, and the subtle variegated effect brings a sense of movement and flow to the piece. Just be sure to read through the pattern carefully before you begin, as there are a few different techniques at work.

6. British Climbing Roses Socks
Designer: Jan Henley
Don’t you love the delicate rose design on these socks? The pattern provides plenty of opportunities to try out a range of techniques, including the Turkish cast on. So what are you waiting for? Once you’ve knitted up a pair, create a statement look by wearing them under a pair of chunky sandals.

7. Lace Shawl
Designer: Jan Henley
You can never have too many lace shawls, and this longline version is a real stunner. Made with variegated yarn in pretty sunset colours, this pattern is a must have. Wear it over a neutral coloured dress to make the colours really pop.

8. Fingerless Mittens
Designer: Helen Ardley
Helen Ardley’s fingerless mittens are a classic wardrobe staple. The lace stitches, made with a cotton yarn, are easily worked and radiate feminine elegance. Make up a pair tonight to add a charming touch to any outfit.

9. Party Wrap
Designer: Charmaine Fletcher
For a beaded wrap that’s fit for a party, try Charmaine Fletcher’s fab magenta make. The straightforward pattern uses regular yarn forward increases and knit two together decreases to create a delicate look. While we love this bold colour, you could also swap it out for a subtler shade that complements your favourite outfit.
