Knitting: Doll
Rayan is another design named after one of my children. This is a memorial of sorts, for a child who did not live long. This type of primitive comfort doll is known in our house as a lovey or a wubbie. It is a topsy turvy doll as well. The lace is reversible, and there is a head for each side, one that is awake and one for sleeping. Perfect for...

Knitting: Beanie, Toque
A brume is a mist or fog, much like the kind that forms over the sea or on the beach in October through January. This hat is inspired by that image, with the cables twisting like the clouds as they hang low over the land during the day. Sized from infant to large adult, with clever crown decreases to maintain the cables to the top, there is eno...
Knitting: Hanging Ornament
The three gifts of the Magi were gold, frankincense and myrrh. This trio of ornaments takes their inspiration from those gifts. Cables create gold ropes, chains and coins, gold and pewter texture imitate traditional censers of the Middle East, and stranded color work represents the myrrh plant. Each of these is quick to knit, and is complete wh...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Mariam is named after one of my daughters who is as flowery and pink and purple as you can dream. This shawl, knit top down in a rounded triangle shape, uses texture and lace to create a floral design. This is a large, cozy piece that does not sacrifice delicacy for warmth. The texture is simple to memorize and the lace pattern is uncomplicated...
Knitting: Hanging Ornament
Here is a lovely little evergreen wreath ornament pattern that is fun and quick to knit.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Shoreline takes its inspiration from the seashore, which is a place I have always loved. The single cable panel mimics the motion of water on the shore, while the twisted stitches represent the granular sand, and the reverse stockinette stitch behind the cable acts as the water smoothed beach. The beanie is worked in the round from the bottom u...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
I am so pleased to be offering this pattern in collaboration with an excellent independent dyer, Karyn Graves from Twisted Hues Yarns. Not only are her yarn bases wonderful, and made with quality and interesting fibers, her dying technique creates rich, saturated colors, including semi-solids, tonals, and the popular speckles. If you haven’t wo...
Knitting: Sleeveless Top
Named after my eldest daughter, Amira is an elegant top that would look well under a blazer with a skirt or by itself over jeans. This sleeveless shell has a modified, draped boat neck with lace and texture to form a modest and feminine line which can take you from early spring through fall or early winter. With 11 sizes to choose from, you are...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Ziyad is a lovely hat for keeping the whole family warm. Suitable for men and women, adults and children, this quick knitting hat is a perfect gift - for someone else, or for yourself! The textured spiral keeps the knitting interesting, but does not require more attention than the average rib.
Knitting: Christmas Stocking
Our tradition of hanging stockings on Christmas Eve (or for the feast of Saint Nicholas on the night before December 6) comes from the stories of a real man from Myra, in what is now Turkey. This stocking takes its inspiration from that piece of history. Using the bright, primary colors of traditional Turkish and Middle Eastern motifs and geome...
Knitting: Shrug / Bolero
This design is a cache-coeur and I’ve played with the idea of “coeur” by including a lace heart on the back, and even with the details of heart buttons. It is a heart warmer, or heart holder, kind of a cross between a cardigan and a shawl.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
Saint Helena is a set of fingerless mitts, great for keeping you warm while driving, knitting, or typing. These mitts are for people who have things to do!
Knitting: Bonnet
Once upon a time I needed a simple, quick, baby bonnet. I came up with one and used it for quite a long time. Then, I thought of ways I could vary it or improve it. This is the result of that. It is a great use of small amounts of yarn, leftovers from other projects, even some angora bits and bobs or some other luxury or novelty yarn, as I did ...
Knitting: Headband
The simple headband is adjustable, using buttons that can be buttoned a little looser or tighter, as necessary, and is perfect for using leftovers from other projects.
Knitting: Scarf
Saint George is a result of my eldest son’s wanting a new scarf and my desire to design it for him. He picked the color, I floated some design ideas for him to consider, and this is what we came up with together. I think it is a very masculine pattern, great for gift giving for the holidays, though it could be used for a woman, of course.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Our preemie daughter was born in May, but started to come in April. April will always mean preemie to me, and this design began as one for preemie babies only. It is sweet to have something pretty to put her in and a matching set that fits is a morale booster. The hat will also help maintain temperatures in a little one who can’t do it on his o...
Knitting: Vest
Our preemie daughter was born in May, but started to come in April. April will always mean preemie to me, and this design began as one for preemie babies only. It is sweet to have something pretty to put her in and this buttonless vest will make his frequent changes simpler, and permit layering for warmth.
Knitting: Towel
Our preemie daughter was born in May, but started to come in April. April will always mean preemie to me, and this design began as part of a set for preemie babies only. Babies often spit up a lot, so a cloth is necessary. Rather than throwing a bar cloth or cloth diaper over your shoulder when you are going out in public, make this cute little...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This is a simple shawl knit from point to point in reverse stockinette st. This was initially designed as a nursing shawl, but I wear it all the time as an accessory. It is knit in a rather open, loose gauge, to create an airy feel to the shawl, so remember that if choosing an alternate yarn. I used all but around 5 yards of the yarn, so count ...
Knitting: Christmas Stocking
Here is a nice, chubby stocking to hang for St. Nicholas. It uses entrelac, some stranded, and some striped colorwork. This is a basic top down sock construction, so if you are familiar with that, it will be simple to make. And no second sock!
Knitting: Mittens
This is a simple pattern that I wrote up in two sizes. I titled these Saint Elizabeth, after the mother of the Forerunner, because I imagine her to have been so full of love and care for her late in life baby. I can see her lovingly making little objects for her miracle child.
Knitting: Bonnet
Fingering-weight yarn of cashmere and extra fine merino combined with a delicate lace stitch produces this heirloom baby bonnet. The body of the bonnet is knitted in one shaped piece with two small seams, and ribbing is picked up and knit along the bottom edge.
Knitting: Pixie Hat
This itty, bitty elf hat was initially made for a yarn shop promotion where I worked. I made this pattern to sell in a Christmas in July type sale to get people ready for their holiday knitting. Rather than go with the common red and white for my sample, I made a more general elf, using a teal and white. I’ve revised the pattern and added a lar...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This quick and easy baby hat is a hit at baby showers, as well as being perfect for charity knitting, and has a matching sweater. They are both available as part of an e-book as well as individually. The smallest size of this hat took me literally an hour to make, from casting on to weaving in the ends. If you factor in time to get ready, wrap ...
