Knitting: Cardigan
October here can bring those days that begin with chill mists but have surprisingly warm sunshine by lunchtime. Equally, the evenings and early mornings begin to have a wintry bite that make thoughts turn to woollen warmth and comfort. The October cardigan is richly textured with cables but hasn’t too much bulk, so it can be reached for as an e...
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
Stranded colourwork and textured stitches form a soft rainbow stripe on these mid-forearm length mitts, the first pattern in the Cottars Almanac series. Cosy and hardwearing, they stretch out those last few weeks of being able to be outdoors in a t-shirt, and keep you prepared for when the sun gets lower and the mornings start to have a little ...
Knitting: Pullover
Marmalade is a yoked sweater with generous ease for a relaxed look. Yoke decreases are concealed within the delicate cabling of the yoke, while a bright contrast colour for the ribbed cuffs and collar highlights the texture and beauty of a natural yarn for the main colour. It is knit in the round from the bottom up, with sleeves knitted separat...
Knitting: Pullover
A stranded colourwork, yoked sweater, Barnoon is inspired by my favourite views across the rooftops of St Ives, and the work many artists have produced reflecting the unique colour and light of the town.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
A cosy slouch beanie, Spirograph Hat swirls the spirals of eyelets and travelling single cables of the original Spirograph headband to eye-catching completion at the crown. Knit in the round from the brim upwards, the decreases are hidden in the single cabling pattern.

Knitting: Ankle Sock
Tinner’s Way socks feature a pattern of intertwining single cables and, inspired as they are by a walking path running through Cornwall, they knit up well in a sturdy, medium to firm handling 4ply, and have a slightly longer leg so that they are suited to wearing with boots.
Knitting: Cardigan
’To The Lighthouse’ is a kimono-style, open fronted lace cardigan with positive ease. The geometric lace pattern radiates out from the central line to call to mind the beams of a lighthouse in an Art Deco style. The pattern also creates gentle pleats which help the cardigan to skim the curves of the body without the need for shaping. The body o...
Knitting: Cowl
Porthmeor is a wide Moebius loop cowl featuring a repetitive pattern of oval forms in knit and purl stitches. It references the way the sculptor Barbara Hepworth explored forms in work inspired by her native Yorkshire and the landscape in and around her adopted town of St Ives. It can be worn as a generous loop scarf or around and over the shou...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
The first pattern of the St Ives Collection, this stranded colourwork beanie hat, Barnoon is inspired by my favourite views across the rooftops of St Ives, Cornwall and the work many artists have produced reflecting the unique colour and light of this fishing community turned artists’ colony.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Ridges created by stitches that  run horizontally around the Port hat call to mind ripples on water and create extra insulation, making this a cosy choice for coastal walking. Created using only knit and purl stitches, it is knitted flat with picked up stitches for the brim and crown, and mattress stitch seaming.
Knitting: Cowl
Starboard cowl features simple combinations of knit and purl stitches, which can be worked either from the chart or written instructions, whichever you prefer. It can be knitted flat, but if you prefer knitting in the round, it can also be knitted seamlessly on DPNs.

Knitting: Beanie, Toque
An easy, slouchy hat, using garter stitch and a stripe of contrasting texture to show off the beauty of natural coloured wool.

Knitting: Pillow / Cushion
