Easy knitting patterns
Using large size chunky knitting needles
Perfect patterns for both beginners and impatient people: it’s as easy as combining chunky or super bulk yarn with large size knitting needles. Your project will be ready in no time at all!
2. Easy to knit pullover with a grey front and a longer length back in red. Work the sleeves in intarsia to complete this original bi-colour jumper. Made from our new soft and warm Supreme Merino yarn, and certified mulesing free. The kids are going to have a lot of fun choosing their own colour combinations from the 18 shades available.
3. This warm and cosy knitted coat is made from Laponia, a chunky multicoloured yarn. Knit an uneven degrade effect in garter st without changing the ball of yarn. And the best thing about it? It has pockets!
4. A long casual bi-colour jacket knitted in our new Katia Mouton yarn. This spongy and voluminous fantasy yarn is like the fleece of a recently sheared sheep. Furthermore, it feels equally fluffy and pleasant to touch.
Jacquard is easy to knit
Do you like patterns with colourful designs, but find it difficult to knit with various yarns at the same time? No problem! With our printed jacquard effect yarns you only need one ball of yarn. As a result, the jacquard pattern creates itself!
7. How about a combination of a Nordic style jacquard and a relief stitch texture? We propose this sweater with raglan sleeves and a yoke knitted with Katia Scandinavia. Moreover, the Prime Merino colour palette complements this jacquard effect yarn to perfection.
Multicoloured yarns are for winter
The colourful knit models cheer up our knitting needles throughout the dark and cold winter season. Furthermore, they also make the little ones happy. So what is the best plan for a beginner knitter on an autumn afternoon? Why not try a few balls of our multicoloured yarns and one of these easy knitting patterns.
8. For a change, here is a style in reverse stockinette st! Does the print effect on this hooded poncho remind you of an animal print? Our new yarn Katia Twins creates this exciting effect with black stripes on a large colour gradient background.
9. A very youthful knitted sweat top with hood in a rib stitch. In fact, this is a very comfortable, pleasant and warm garment made from 100% merino wool. Our Merino Baby Plus yarn creates the casual stripes, and furthermore, it is machine washable.
10. You only need a few balls of Katia Balloon and a pair of size 17(U.S.)/(12 mm) knitting needles to knit this warm multicoloured poncho. This is, without doubt, a great and colourful maxi knit project that will be ready in no time at all!
