FashionTrends by Danielle Ryan

Spring is on its way and with the warmer change many knitters are looking for those key
pieces to knit that will see them through the season. Our trend predictions are sure to
give you some inspiration to keep up-to-date with this season’s latest looks and
our colour trends will assist when picking the all-important yarn.

KEY FASHION TRENDS


This season patchwork is
Bright and bold stripes: Classic
taking over fashion runways!
navy and white nautical stripes get

of every stripe style imaginable!
Horizontal, vertical, thick, skinny –
you name it, it’s in. Whether you are
looking for a new lightweight jumper
or rib knit top, stripes are the way to
add interest and update your look.
Sequins and sparkle: Sequins can
be used in any form on all styles
of garments. Jazz up your knitwear
with some traditional black sequins
or create impact by using silver for
head-turning detail. If you’re hesitant
to wear sequins, you can keep it
casual by styling an oversized sequin
top or shirt with black jeans or loose-
fitted trousers. It is also ideal to avoid
garments that fit too snugly. Replacing
