  • Seasonless - Patterns for Life

    Seasonless – Patterns for Life is an unusual pattern book that contains 5 fundamental knitwear pieces that are all customizable in terms of stitch pattern and shape. Using the same basic gauge in worsted weight yarn, you can make countless versions of the fingerless mitts, hat, vest, sweater, and cardigan designs by combining your favorite colors, any of the four stitch variations (stockinette, bold stripes, mosaic, and textured), and different shaping options. All of the patterns are genderless and size-inclusive, so your projects will make great holiday gifts for everyone in the family.

    Seasonless also includes a section on yarn selection and styling ideas. We invited four people from different locations and climates to share how they would customize and style designs from the collection.
