It’s been an amazing experience designing independent knitting patterns these last 12+ years. And throughout it, the many life changes, including a fantastic full-time job, have pulled me from my ability to maintain the upkeep and customer service needed. I’ve decided to close the store and retire all the patterns. It may not be forever, but I need to follow my heart towards other projects for now.

My patterns and pattern support will no longer be available after August 1, 2021.

Until that date, please enjoy a closing discount of 50% off on all patterns (no coupon code needed). Thank you for so many years of support and knitting!

Tempest Shawlette is beautifully simple, rich with texture and depth with liberal use of eyelets and twisted stitches. This one skein project is pure joy to work up and exciting to wear. The best part, though, is that the shawlette is stunning in it’s reversible nature.

My patterns are filled with beautifully clear photos, easy to read text, eye-catching layout, and everything you need to know in order to complete the project. The Tempest Shawlette pattern contains the special bind off tutorial.
