These mittens, and a coordinating hat pattern, were inspired by the Eye of God Nebula. They use a panoramic gradient and textured rib to represent that nebula in the sky. The effect is interesting in any panoramic gradient, and does not require my own color choices.

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: Beanie, Toque
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: 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: Fingerless Gloves
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...

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: 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...
