How do I create a collection?
If you haven't created a collection on LoveKnitting or LoveCrochet before, here is a handy reminder of the steps.
We’re delighted that seven fabulous knit and crochet designers are joining the fun for Indie June, and they’re passionate about their capsule wardrobe garments! We asked them which of their own patterns is the most useful capsule wardrobe staple, and here’s what they said!
I’d have to go with my Baccarat sweater. I live in Montreal, where it’s cold for many long months of the year, so a worsted weight turtleneck serves me well from October through May. The simple geometric colourwork yoke can look very modern in on-trend neutrals or get a bit retro with a bolder palette. I rediscovered my love of Noro’s colour-changing yarns while working on this. The Silk Garden has a hint of the 60s and 70s to it that I think goes really well with the slightly oversized, cropped silhouette.
My favorite piece from the collection is the Sandbar Cardi, which is a lightweight, mesh cardigan made from worsted weight cotton. I love this piece because it is so versatile and easy to customize. It’s also a perfect first garment for beginner crocheters. I designed it to easily transition from a beach coverup to a top layer over a casual afternoon outfit.

I’d say my current favorite is my Autumn League Pullover. It’s a knit take on a classic crewneck sweatshirt with the little “v” neck detail, and I’m just so thrilled with how it turned out. It takes a simple sweatshirt to the next level and looks so much more elevated in hand knit form.
The two items in my capsule that I find myself wearing the most are the Day Date Cardigan and the Up-North Cardigan. Both are easy garments to crochet, super comfy and can be styled in a lot of different ways.
For winter, Flannery is my go to pullover. I wear it all the time! It is warm with the perfect amount ease for a very comfortable fit. It can be worn by itself or there is room for it go over layers on colder days. For summer Clara is the one. It is a comfortable, easy styling pullover with a touch of pretty from the lace.
My favorite capsule piece from the collection is the Natare Top, because it’s a great basic crochet top and works well together with jeans and a crocheted cardigan.
The Thandeka Pullover is my favourite. I love the versatility of the pullover - it can be worn with dresses, pants or jeans.
