Our Knit by Numbers DK makes wonderfully cosy and comfortable jumpers. And now that it’s August, our thoughts are starting to turn to colder weather and bundling ourselves in marvelous wool once more. It may not yet feel like it, but that crisp autumn weather is just around the corner! If, like us, you are starting to ponder new knits for autumn then, why not opt for Emily Ringelman’s gorgeous Coronis jumper? This pattern was originally the cover girl of Pom Pom Quarterly issue 10, and we’re now thrilled to have this fun knit on our website!
Coronis is a fun cropped pullover with slip-stitch stripes. Wear it with some positive ease for a comfy weekend piece, or go with negative ease for more of a vintage, bombshell look. This cropped pullover is worked from the top down totally seamlessly with a circular yoke. Not into cropped silhouettes? Simply knit the body to the length you want – it’s so easy to do with a top-down design. The same applies for the sleeves. Make them long or short – it’s up to you!
There are so many unique and inspiring takes on this jumper on Ravelry that we just had to share a few of our favourites with you. With 109 shades of KBN DK to choose from the possibilities are rather mind boggling!!
We hope you’ll find these lovely folks’ projects just as inspiring as we do.
First up is Nelly (bighairbigfun on Ravelry) and her cheerful grey number. Grey and red is always a winning colour combo in our book and those little pop’s of orange in the stripes, just add that extra bit of pizzazz to her selection.
Laura (purlprincess91 on Ravelry) also chose grey as the main colour, but this time a slightly darker shade, which she paired with a red and white contrast, to give the garment a bit more of a classic feel.
Jaqueline chose to lengthen the body of her Coronis a little and knit a size with a few inches of positive ease – we just love the results – a laid back and easy jumper. Her cheery spring colour combo of soft greens and yellows is also pretty swell.
Lea Lacoste (WildHandMade on Ravelry) chose such a calming turquoise shade as her main colour. The grey she’s paired it with is on point! Lea Lacoste chose to lengthen the body and sleeves of her Coronis with just a little bit of positive ease, so her garment has a relaxed fit.
We love the riot of colour in Liberty (LibertyJean on Ravelry)’s cropped version – she’s used a bold purple and orange combo which would be sure to lift one’s spirits on a cold drizzly day. Doesn’t she look fab?
It looks like Feline (Felinchen on Ravelry) had a blast with her Swatching! She trialed the stripes in both combinations. We love the joyous orange and maroon combo she alighted upon. That delicate pop of green sets the other two shades off fabulously. Feline decided to knit her version with a fair bit of positive ease and we love the results.
We hope you’ve enjoyed seeing this parade of glorious Coronis jumpers as much as we did. Isn’t it just inspiring seeing people’s spectacular handywork? Personally we’d love to have a multi-coloured version using grey as the main colour and all the mini skeins for contrast! Now there is a thought…. Farewell for now as – we’re off to spend the next half hour perusing the shelves of our little Lynton shop!
