These stranded mittens feature two different motifs and can be worn with either side on the tops of your hands. For ease of working, the pattern refers to a specific Left and Right Mitten, though the fit is interchangeable depending on which side you feel like wearing “up”. Latvian braids centered over the ribbed cuff add a unique detail to this...

“These stranded mittens feature an allover geometric pattern on the hand, and a modified Norwegian “lice” filler on the palm and thumb. I was so inspired by this intriguing color combination, with its strong complimentary undertones. The rich, golden Hayloft has a base of orange flecks that combine harmoniously with Truffle Hunt’s underlyi...
Knitting: Pullover
This sweet knitted tee takes advantage of Loft’s fabric versatility. Because of its woolen-spun construction, the yarn can knit to a sport weight gauge without losing fabric integrity, creating a warm and weightless fabric – perfect for layering! Body and sleeves of this garment feature turned hems for a clean, tailored look while the wide crew ...
Knitting: Scarf
This simple scarf is a great pattern for beginning lace knitters, or anyone wanting to practice their knitted-on edging technique. Worked in two colors, it’s a great project to help teach knitters how to see the relationship between both parts of the project (center lace panel & edging). The Small Version shows a color combination with high ...
Knitting: Beret, Tam, Beanie, Toque
This hat design features Bavarian Twisted Stitch motifs (produced by knitting stitches through their back loops), which create a wonderful relief-like texture. The pattern is written for two versions: a fitted unisex beanie (shown in Barn Owl) or a stylish Tam version (shown in Truffle Hunt). Both versions use less than one skein of Loft, and ma...

“A good Pi Shawl is always welcome in my knitting bag. This type of construction, developed by Elizabeth Zimmermann in the 1950’s, is a perfect balance between mindless and attentive knitting. Upon completion of Chart A, the entire shawl will have only 4 total shaping rounds remaining. You’ll be amazed at how quickly this project will fly ...
Knitting: Mittens
These stranded mittens feature graphic diamond shapes on the top of hand and an allover chevron pattern on the palm. Worked in a pair of classic greys, they are sure to go with just about any color in your wardrobe. Thumbs are shaped via a side gore construction for a snug, anatomical fit. When you have increased to the full amount of thumb stit...
Knitting: Cowl
This pretty loop scarf is a great project for beginning lace knitters, or a relaxing and intuitive pattern for those with more experience. It uses less than one skein of yarn and is a great last-minute gift idea. The lace pattern at the base of the knitted loop forms gentle scallops, and two bands of textured eyelets add balance to the overall c...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap, Throw
This large lace shawl begins in the center and is shaped outward towards the edges with 7 patterned “spokes.” The piece is worked in the round and, with the exception of Charts 5 & 6, has a free round of knitting in between each lace round, making this a well-balanced project between mindless and mindful knitting.
Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
A woolly triangular shawl in a lightweight fabric is a great accessory to have on hand. We like to wear them bunched up around the neck, with volume, like a scarf. The stitch patterns incorporated in this design allow the fabric to be decorative, without being overly lacey. Here yarn and pattern combine to create a warm accessory that is both be...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap, Throw, Baby Blanket

Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
We find the coziness of garter stitch lace irresistable, especially in light, soft wool. This lace rectangle, inspired by traditional Orenburg shawls of Russia, has a built-in sawtooth edging and features a traditional Shetland Rose motif within the center panel. The fabric is knit on both sides (no purling), though the lace patterning is only e...
Knitting: Scarf
We love large dramatic scarves made from wispy, featherweight fabrics. This scarf is of generous width and length, providing great volume around the neck when worn with multiple wraps. The beautiful lace motifs were inspired by Sharon Miller’s newest book “Love Darg Shetland Shawls.” These delicate, historic motifs are worked on both RS and WS r...
Knitting: Scarf
Wexford is a simple rectangle with geometric eyelet patterning that creates X’s and diamonds over the length of the piece. The graphic motifs are punctuated with bobble clusters at the points where diagonals intersect for an unexpected bit of texture. If you prefer a bobble- less version, simply replace the Bobble symbols in the chart with regul...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
We’re big fans of wool shawls in the Fall – such versatile pieces keep you warm and comfortable, and are great accents for all types of layered wardrobe combinations. This triangular shawl is a texture-lover’s dream. The border features garter stitch, meandering cables, and short-row detailing. The main body fabric is worked in a lovely variatio...
Knitting: Pullover
This cozy sweater is perfect for lounging on a Sunday morning, or throwing on for outings on chilly Fall or Winter days.

Knitting: Mittens, Beret, Tam
This matching hat and mitten set uses a rich basketweave cable to make a sturdy fabric – perfect for guarding against Winter winds while worn. We chose to make them in a deep red – because everyone needs at least one red accessory in their wardrobe! It’s the perfect pop of color to add to an outfit of grey or neutral tones. If you’re not the typ...
Knitting: Mittens
This pair of mittens is laden with sculptural cables on the hand and adorned with a simple, textured “sled” stitch on the palm. The two given sizes are achieved by working the same pattern at different gauges. The shaping for the thumb and lower hand is slightly unusual: unlike a traditional thumb gore, Flint’s thumb stitches are already present...
Knitting: Vest
“I’m always charmed by the simple Norwegian “Lice” Pattern that adorns this vest – it’s both classic and sweet. This garment is worked in the round from bottom to top and, in the spirit of tradition, utilizes steeks (cutting) to open up the armholes and neck. Huxley knits up quickly and makes a great layering piece to add warmth and intere...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This relaxed-fitting beanie can be worked in three lengths to achieve a short, medium, or longer (slouchier) fit. The ribbed understructure of the cable pattern allows for a stretchy fabric that fits a wide range of adult head sizes. The simple cables flow directly out from the ribbing and then split into a rosette pattern when crown shaping beg...
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
Twisted stitch ribbing creates a firm, structured fabric as a lovely backdrop to diamonds formed by smocked stitches (a trio of knit, purl, knit is wrapped twice after being worked) and twisted cable crosses. It is possible to work all stitches in the pattern without the use of a cable needle, making these a fun, quick fix for texture fiends.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This cozy garter stitch hat is a fun and quick knit that is great for using leftover scraps from various worsted weight wools.

The brim, which is worked last, is pick...
