Well fiber artists, we have made it to our final post of 2016! We have heaps of exciting content lined up for the new year, but first, let’s swoon over some fabulously shimmery fiber fashion that is inspired by the famous Time Square Crystal Ball. Even if you do not have the time to create a brand-new shiny piece before heading to your New Year’s Eve celebrations, get inspired and bookmark all of the beautiful DIYs featured below. You can find all of these patterns and their material requirements on Interweave’s online store!
|Celtic Queen Knitting Pattern
This stunning cap sleeve top looks like it came straight from the pages of a fashion editorial, but you can create it yourself with silk tape yarn that has been infused with shimmery fiber. Elegant enough to pair with a pleated skirt and chic enough to sport under your favorite leather jacket, this top is a versatile staple you’ll want to keep in your wardrobe forever.
|Starry Night Tunic Knitting Pattern
Shimmer and shine in this lovely light-weight knitted tunic that can easily be dressed up or down based on the occasion. The soft black fiber sprinkled with shimmer is reminiscent of twinkling stars in the night sky, and a belted waistline adds shape to this classic billowy knit.
|On The Fringe Poncho
Have you ever dreamed of stepping out of the house with your favorite cozy blanket draped over your shoulders? This fuzzy fringed crochet poncho is the stylish alternative to that fantasy. The luxuriously soft chainette yarn utilized in this project will make this poncho a winter wardrobe staple.
|Cara Pullover in Luna, Celine, Stella & Crystal
Make a statement and turn heads in this unique knitted sweater featuring short-row wedge detailing. This pattern features a variety of 5 warm and fuzzy yarns with dazzling hints of sparkle. Be prepared to be flooded with compliments each time you rock this gorgeous handcrafted piece, and feel proud when you get to explain that you created it yourself!
No matter what your plans are for New Year’s Eve, we hope you get to enjoy the holiday while flaunting one of your favorite shiny fiber art pieces.
