One of the boldest trends over the past year or so is that of angular, Aztec-inspired prints. From home decor to jewelry and swimwear, you’d be hard-pressed not to spot the Southwestern flair that graces the aisles of even the most mainstream of retailers.
Here are some of the inspiration images featuring this trend — you can see the ever-growing collection on my “Azteca” Pinterest board.
Us knitters can jump on the trend now too, by whipping up one of the quickie projects designed by myself and the Bernat team!
Southwestern Comfort Pillow, by Vickie Howell
The Southwestern Comfortpillow is worked in chunky yarn and in black, neutral & pop colors to emphasize the modern appeal of a graphic that traditionally evokes ancient times. Get the supplies here.
Aztec Cowl, by Bernat Design Team
The Aztec Cowl is timeless in its design. The cream background and subtle, multi-colored print is so chic that this accessory will be wearable long after the ethnic print trend has passed. Get the supplies here and here.
It's almost July and that means it's time to debut YarnYAY!’s Fall/Winter Designer in Residence - the amazing, vibrant, and talented, Toni Lipsey aka @tlyarncrafts ! We're big fans of her work in both the crochet and Tunisian crochet realms and couldn't be more thrilled to have her on the design team for the season.
✨This means that, as of our July box (on sale now) YarnYAY! subscribers will receive one of her patterns, designed especially for us! 🧶
Welcome Toni, we’re thrilled to have you as part of the team! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
The majority share of the knitting, crochet, and crafts industries, and the community that supports them, are women and non-binary folk with uteruses. After yesterday's devastating supreme court decision, essentially removing women's constitutional rights over our own bodies, need to support one another. We need to love each other enough to not give up. I see you. My heart is with you.
Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to be on a Zoom action-meeting run by a major women's healthcare organization. We feel powerless, but one of the suggestions they gave for things we can do is to donate to grass-root organizations that focus on women's healthcare clinics.
