Patterns without colourwork or special construction - just basic items using texture, lace, cables, garter, or plain stockinette; or a combination of those!
Stranded knitting makes so many motifs possible - I love using it in my designs to make patterns and images come to life.
Stranded and double knitting are my usual go-to techniques when I want to use multiple colours to bring a motif into knitting; but they’re by no means the only methods to do so! These designs use colour in different ways, such as double knitting - which gives you a reversible fabric; mosaic - which is a great way for beginners to get started with colourwork; and intarsia - which I’ve found doesn’t have to be a pain to execute if you manage your bobbins well.
Sometimes I do something special when it comes to my knitting designs - whether it’s a heel-out sock, knitting on the bias, or some other way of putting knitting together that you don’t see every day.
