If you haven't heard of Holla Knits, seriously, where have you been???
The concept is great - it "is a fun new site dedicated to bringing you knits you’re sure to love: bold, challenging, flirty designs you want to knit and wear immediately. Holla Knits is bridging the gap between what you knit and what you wear every day."
It is the brainchild of Allyson Dykhuizen who also runs The Sweatshop of Love (and featured in the "In the Conductor's Booth" series for the show); she saw that there were lots of patterns out there that looked great but weren't really what young, hip knitters would make and Holla Knits was born.
For the 2012 subscription (which now went up to $36 per year), you get 18 patterns - 6 each for the Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter collections and also an Accessories collection. If the Spring/Summer collection is any indication then it is definitely worth it to subscribe. Check out the patterns:
|In Awhile, Crocodile|
|Put a Belt On It|
Finally, Holla Knits is sponsoring a pattern giveaway! In the comments below, tell me which one would you knit and why?
