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 geomet...
Knitting: Shrug / Bolero, Neck / Torso - Other
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.
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 w...
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 (which is really somewhere between these two pictures), 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,...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This is a simple nursing shawl knit from point to point in reverse stockinette st. 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 on using the whole skein. It is a perfect choice for the one skein purchase of a colo...
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.
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, I thought to make a more general elf, using a teal and white. I’ve revised the pattern and added a l...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
I’m in the process of revising this pattern, and the matching sweater pattern, to include more sizes and updated photography. When that process is complete, the pattern price will be increasing. If you buy either or both now, you will receive the improved pattern when it is released for the price of the earlier pattern.
