Our Must-Makes for 2023

Our Must-Makes for 2023

Here at BMYS, we’re excited to plan out all of our projects for 2023. Each staff member has compiled a list of their favorite patterns, that they just have to complete in the new year. From sweaters to socks, we hope you can get inspired for your next project, hop on a fun KAL with us, or even see some overlap between our must-makes and yours! 

Danni: Between her various test knits, Danni is excited to make the following projects this year. 

  • LYS by Andrea Mowry: Using La Bien Aimee Mondiem in the colorway Yellow Brick Road.
  • Ghost Ranch Hat by Andrea Mowry: Handspun by Trillium Fiber and Spincycle Dyed in the Wool in the colorway Salty Dog.
  • Penelope Tee by Julie Robinson using Wandering Flock Fingering Weight.

Renee: Renee is pretty ambidextrous when it comes to knitting and crochet, and her chosen projects are no different. 

  • October Sweater by Kaitlin Barthold (knitted) using Kokon Aran in the Breast Cancer Awareness Kit (pink). Renee has already cast on this project and is almost finished knitting the body!

  • Homespun Hat by Maggie Kent using handspun yarn, also made by Maggie, held with a strand of mohair. Renee has also cast on this project already, and is loving the look so far. 

Maggie: Maggie loves to spin her own yarn, and hopes to come out with some sweater patterns this year, but she also wants to knit the following patterns. 

  • Cecilia by Tove Richter: Maggie is knitting this sweater using Echoview’s Forager yarn (worsted weight, discontinued). Maggie is almost finished with this knit, with just a bit of the yoke left to go. 

  • Ingrid Sweater by Petite Knits using Brooklyn Tweed’s Shelter yarn in the color Pumice. Maggie has been excited to knit this sweater ever since it came out, and is excited to complete it this year. 


Katy: Katy is a fantastic knitting instructor with a love for bright colors and interesting colorwork. She’s excited to work on the following patterns this year.
