Named after MacMahan Island, in Boothbay Harbor, Maine, this collection of three cowls was inspired by the island’s rugged coastline, with its rocky ledges, powerful tides, and ubiquitous clumps of seaweed.

I created this design in honor of the Chinese Year of the Snake. The Chinese zodiac is a 12 year cycle, with a different animal for each year; in addition, each year is also associated with one of five elements (wood, fire, earth, metal or water). 2013 is the year of the Water Snake; water snakes belong to the genus Nerodia.

I created this pattern in honor of the Chinese Year of the Rabbit; many of the nicest people I know are Rabbits (born in a Rabbit year, that is)! Of course this pullover would also be perfect for Easter. The bunnies encircling the yoke have been captured in several lifelike poses, and require some attention on the part of the knitter, but the re...

Button-front, sleeveless vest, worked in one piece from the bottom up. This vest incorporates many figure-flattering details, including a deep V-neck, empire waist accented with the “Circles” pattern, and curved front hems.

Knitting: Sleeveless Top
This elegant top is written for sizes from Small (31”) to XL (57”) and spans almost every number in between by switching needles to change the gauge. Lots of detail in the instructions, a chart, suggestions for yarn subs, etc.
Knitting: Pullover
Worked mainly in the round, with a split lace hem at the bottom edges of body and 3/4 length sleeves, the focal points of this raglan-sleeved pullover (besides the lace edgings) are the Four Sisters lace pattern on the sleeves, and the twist stitch columns which help shape and define the waist. The worsted-weight yarn works up quickly on US size...

Knitting: Sleeveless Top, Dress
This empire-waisted camisole, almost entirely worked in the round, is easily lengthened to a dress. It showcases the “Dayflower” lace pattern from Barbara Walker’s 2nd Treasury of Knitting Patterns. The bust is fitted, with a twisted cord tie accent, and the Dayflower lace straps provide the finishing touch.

The rich detail and color of carved cinnabar were the inspiration for this hat (for the coordinating scarf, see the December 2006 issue of MagKnits), which showcases a modified version of the “Double Ribbed Mock Cable” (DRMC) from Barbara Walker’s 4th Treasury of Knitting Patterns. In the pictured hat, the stitch pattern is used both horizontall...

Knitting: Pullover
This top-hip length pullover uses a modified version of “Chinese Lace,” from Barbara Walker’s 2nd Treasury of Knitting Patterns. Wide bands of the lace adorn the the cuffs and hem, and then flow into the ribs which give this sweater its flattering fit. In addition, the waist is shaped with decreases and increases, and the three...

Knitting: Sleeveless Top, Dress
As this dress took form, its violet color and the waterfall effect of the lace border brought the cascading blossoms of Wisteria sinensis to mind. And since W. sinensis means Chinese wisteria, and the lace border is a variation of “Chinese Lace” from Barbara Walker’s 2nd Treasury of Knitting Patterns—well, the name seemed perfect.

Don’t you love zippers for kids’ clothes? Easy on and off, no worrying about buttons that can pop off and find their way into a toddler’s mouth. And they’re easy to insert--honest! I did it for the first time when I knit the prototype for this pattern, now available for sizes 6 months to 6 years.
