Easton is a nod to my very favorite sweater in the whole world - an old sales-bin find. It’s slightly (but not excessively) dolman through the arms, loosely-fit through the shoulders, with extra-deep ribbing and an extra-luscious cowl, out of a soft gray wool. It’s been looking shabbier and shabbier, and I’ve been wanting to design something ins...
Tidal Pool is an updated take on a classic gansey sweater, with a clean silhouette and slight a-line shaping. The scoop neck, sleeves, and hem are trimmed with small amounts of 2x2 ribbing, and textured stitch patterning decorates the top of both the front and back of the garment. 3/4 sleeves and a sport-weight yarn make this sweater comfortable...

Bryony is a fitted, drapey tank top for hot summer days, with an aran braid cable twining around the V-neck and down the back. It is knit in two pieces from the bottom up and then seamed together. An applied I-cord edging is worked to finish the armhole and neck edges. Vertical darts are used for shaping, and are placed to ensure that the cables...
