6 Cozy White Knits

Sweaters and accessories in creamy hues like these are perfect for dreary winter weather.


    Everything in this slideshow

    • Simple Flower Power

      Two pairs of pretty posies take a stockinette-stitch cardigan from subtle to sublime. Embroidered trim adds an extra note of contrast to a Kristin Nicholas original, done in Julia from Nashua Handknits.

    • Cozy Up and Stay Warm

      This fabulous hood by Bobbi Anderson fills in the gap between collar and cap. To work, start at the bottom edge and work toward the hood; then finish with lots and lots of loop stitches. The main section is Skye and the hood trim, Fandango; both are by Colinette Yarns.

    • A Cute Set in White

      Hats off to Jean Guirguis for coming up with this unisex hat and cardigan. One, two, even three pom-poms weren't enough -- she went for the gusto with four. The colorful flecks are knitted in; the yarn is Lion Brand Wool-Ease. Topping off the irresistible infant set -- which would stop the show at any baby shower -- is a carriage blanket, left, in Lion Brand Wool-Ease. This throw is done in one piece with three columns of knitted-in designs: letters, hearts, and dots.

    • A Classic Cable Knit

      This stunner with intertwined cables is a welcome challenge for an experienced knitter. Melissa Leapman's design is stitched in Merinos Dodici from Trendsetter Yarns/Lane Borgosesia. If your budget can bear it, treat yourself to Kashmir, also from Trendsetter yarns.

    • A Catchall Bag

      Not too big, not too small; Susan Shildmyer's beautiful backpack, is just the right size for your essentials. Simply Soft Boucle and Simply Soft Quick, both by Caron International, work up for a fast-finish project done mainly in garter stitch.

    • Everyone Needs Wrist Warmers

      As Mom always said, practice makes perfect, and cables are no exception. Refine your technique by making these wristlets, designed by Darlene Hayes in Simply Soft from Caron International.
