Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This extraordinarily simple barely-a-pattern uses marker placement in relation to columns of yarn overs to create a natural spiral. The increases make the markers slowly drift across the plain garter stitch shawl.
Knitting: Cowl
Named after an unusual old tale by Robert W. Chambers, this cowl uses one unusual skein of Malabrigo Rasta in an unusual lace pattern that zigs and zags in unusual ways, closed with a single unusual button. Anything usual about this cowl at all? I’m afraid not.
Knitting: Cowl
Elongated stitches worked into rhythmically varied bands of garter stitch: a technique that’s perfect for showing off a beautiful yarn and for soothing, but never boring, knitting. The cowl is cast on lengthwise and worked in rows to the desired width, then it’s turned on its side and a second section is worked perpendicularly to giv...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This elegant stole features traditional Shetland lace stitch patterns and edges. Originally made for Gail Callahan, she modeled it so well that soon everyone wanted to know the pattern.
Knitting: Scarf
Daisy Stitch is a particularly attractive member of what I like to call the cluster clump, a group of patterns that involve working a small bundle of stitches at once, usually multiple times.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
An original lace pattern that came to me as I experimented with lace triangles. It looked so stunning that I needed to repeat it to see it over a larger area, and I wasn’t disappointed one bit!
Knitting: Pullover
A striking, elegant sweater made of just four rectangles in a bold lace stitch. No shaping to keep track of or to fit into the stitch pattern. The front and back are identical, so you can throw it on without worrying that you’re wearing it backwards. The stitch pattern reminds me of fresh figs with honey, a most simple and satisfying dessert.
Knitting: Cowl
A devilishly simple lace pattern can create a very intricate looking piece. This cowl is light enough and long enough to be worn around your neck in one, two, or three loops.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
What IS that stitch? Just knits and purls, my friend, and more knitting than purling at that. Well, there are increases, too, but that comes with the triangular shawl territory. Did I mention that it only has two pattern rows? And that its wrong side looks nearly as good as its right side? And that it looks best in wildly contrasting hand-dyed c...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
A riotous, non-repeating yet symmetrical lace triangle kerchief. Buffalo Gold makes it uniquely western, but it would be lovely out of any dk, sport, or lighter weight yarn.
Knitting: Cardigan
Our cups runneth over! The Three of Cups card symbolizes the celebration of community and the joy found in new friendships. This delightful cardigan abounds with “threes,” made in three pieces with three simple lace rows dancing around each other like a happy minuet. Its light and open fabric hugs your curves and the simple kimono shape flows do...
