Basic stitches

As we look back at 2023, the world of knitting took a classic turn.

Basic stitches, such as plain stockinette and ribbing, made a big comeback in the fashion world. Merino wool remained one of the most popular wool types, loved by Australian knitters for its quality and versatility.

Throughout the Autumn and Winter seasons, you could expect to see simple and minimalist jumpers in these cosy stitches.

These pieces are perfect for anyone who favours a timeless and understated look, and they’re also super easy to knit!

Another trend that we saw is the use of raglan and drop-shoulder construction.

These styles add distinctive touch to garments and provide a flattering silhouette.
Countless styles have been inspired by these designs from jumpers to cardigans.

Ribbed Beanies

As the weather progressively became chillier, we all looked for ways to keep warm, and that included hats!

The ribbed beanie trend is a perfect way to accomplish this goal. These beanies are both stylish and practical.

They’re a great way for knitters to test out their skills and produce something wearable and shareable quickly.

If you want to knit a ribbed beanie, we recommend using a chunky or super chunky wool yarn, such as our Woolybutt Chunky or Woolybutt Super Chunky. These yarns are soft, warm, and easy to work with. You will also need a pair of circular needles or double-pointed needles, depending on your preference.

Mini Shawls

Lastly, as the spring and summer seasons approached, we saw another trend emerge – mini shawls. These trendy accessories resemble small-scale shawls that can be used as scarves or neck warmers.

They’re typically adorned with lace, colour work, or other decorative details, making them the perfect way to add a touch of elegance and refinement to any outfit.

So, it’s time to dive right in and grab your knitting needles, fashion lovers, because these trends are here to stay!
