Yarn Stories by Sari N


IN ADDITION TO THE EXISTING NOVITA PATTERN LIBRARY we have created a new monthly product called Yarn Stories by Sari N. In this collection of patterns our knitwear designer Sari Nordlund inspires our customers with trendy and seasonal knit and crochet pieces. These patterns are released every month on novitaknits.com. Sari’s patterns are suitable for intermediate knitters and crocheters and use a range of Novita yarns.

Yarn Stories is a collection of patterns with a fashionable twist. They cleverly, yet delicately, touch the trends of the season without forgetting the sustainable and long-lasting vibe of the handmade wardrobe.


Yarn Stories September-October: Ines Lace Sweater

Lace is always cool, but cool doesn’t mean cold. Ines is worked in DK weight pure wool yarn Novita Nordic Wool, making it a perfect piece for those early autumn days when you can’t really decide whether to wear your coat or not. The sleeves are slightly baggy, adding to a light overall feeling. The sleeves and the hem use a tubular cast-on and the collar is similarly cast off with a tubular cast-off, making the edges flexible and giving them a finished look.

INSPIRATION Sari is inspired by the Scandinavian minimalism and the Nordic nature, and loves to update traditional designs and classics with a modern twist.

PATTERNS The patterns will range from small accessories to larger projects such as sweaters and cardigans, all created with a careful thought to the construction and details. Most of the patterns will be intermediate knits, although there will be occasional beginner friendly projects, too!

YARNS Each design will be carefully paired with the perfect yarn to make the design shine, and also keeping Sari’s love for natural fibers in mind.

CUSTOMERS The designs are created for the modern knitter who is looking for contemporary knitting patterns and timeless wardrobe staples. The main focus is on women’s wear, but some of the designs are unisex. And we are not forgetting the kids either, so get ready for some cute mommy-and-me designs!

FASHION Sari loves to create designs that last in your wardrobe for seasons to come, and in this collection you can expect to find patterns that are on trend, but not out of fashion by the time you are finished with the knitting!
