Crochet: Coaster
This pattern is based on project photos of Nancy Gates’ Stargate Coaster (which is no longer available). The interior of the stargate is done in dc and the outside in sc. Long sc are used for the chevrons.
Knitting: Mittens
These mittens use traditional stranded patterns, including a Norwegian Rose on the back of the hand. The patterns are charted.
Crochet: Coaster
The MC background is crocheted first. Then the CC web is applied using tambour (surface) crochet techniques including sl st (tambour ch st) and elongated sc. For this technique, the yarn is always held on the WS of the work and the hook on the RS.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This hat celebrates Stargate: Atlantis. It contains a dart/jumper motif, the glyph address from earth to Atlantis, and a quote from the stairs in Atlantis. The crown of the hat represents Atlantis as seen from above.

This was originally published in my crochet blog (http://carol-mycrochetpage.blogspot.com/) from August – September 2009. There, the button was sewn on afterwards. Detailed directions of the button being attached are in a June 2014 post.
Knitting: Pullover
This was a fun pattern to design because of all the unusual stitch patterns (and because I liked Sabrina). It was modeled after the sweater Sabrina wore on her trip to Mars in the tv series Sabrina. This was my project for the Nerd Wars 10 (on Ravelry) -- and I wanted to get it published here before Nerd Wars 11 starts next month.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Two skeins of contrasting colors are needed for this hat. Each color uses less than 100 yds of yarn. (The colors I chose are just what I had left over.)
Crochet: Potholder
I’d been wanting to make a ridged hexagonal hotpad for some time. This month’s Nerd Wars on Ravelry gave me the push I needed.
Knitting: Washcloth / Dishcloth
This is actually a model of a Bajoran lightship (as seen in the Star Trek: Deep Space 9 episode “Explorers”) and was knit for a NerdWars challenge. The solar sails aren’t fully deployed -- which is why it looks like a butterfly..
Knitting: Washcloth / Dishcloth
This is a great way to use leftover yarn. (I designed this for a Nerd Wars challenge which asked us to use leftover yarn.)
Knitting: Washcloth / Dishcloth
The pattern is based on the porthole pattern in the Big Book of Knitting Stitch Patterns. I’ve made a couple of changes to the stitch pattern.
Knitting: Washcloth / Dishcloth
This is a creation for Nerd Wars -- the Lars homestead on Tatooine – Luke’s home. (It’s for the architecture challenge this month.)
Knitting: Pullover
This is a pattern that I’ve been thinking about for years. It wasn’t until a discussion about the RS equivalent to a WS pfb, that I finally had the answer to how to make this pullover look how I wanted it to look.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This pattern can be knitted using only 2 skeins of yarn -- but just barely. The scarf is only 36” long.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
One skein is enough for the hat and one mitten. The other 2 skeins were used for the other mitten and the scarf. The scarf is 51” long.
Knitting: Ankle Sock, Mid-calf Socks
When I think of winter, I think of Christmas trees, and candycanes, and sleigh bells. This sock incorporates all of these.
Knitting: Ankle Sock
These toe-up socks feature cornstalks growing up, up, up from the toe and heel of the sock. The socks have a picot cuff and a Widdershins heel worked mainly in reverse stockinette. They’re charted for three different sizes. (The socks in the picture are size S.)
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
This foot top and leg front feature trellises loaded with roses. (As I was trying to arrange a simple rose bud pattern into multiple rose buds, the trellis just happened.) The back of the sock has a version of an iris cable.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
The front of these socks has a motif of bells hanging from drooping snowdrop stems – or perhaps bellflowers or bluebells or various other fritillaries. The back of the sock is worked in a version of a tulip cable. All is worked over a reverse stockinette background.
Crochet: Coaster
Knitting: Washcloth / Dishcloth
I’m calling the pattern diamond mosaic. But, in some ways, it’s more of a leaf mosaic -- with cables forming the base of the leaves and lace for the rest.
Knitting: Washcloth / Dishcloth
This was designed as part of Nerd Wars, here on Ravelry, in the Scientific (Nebula) category.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
I’d been thinking about designing a Star Trek hat for a while. The Nerd Wars competition on Ravelry gave me the push to design and knit it. The band of the hat is red with gold Star Trek insignia (insignia design by Zoë Scheffy). The top of the hat represents the star field as a ship goes into warp.
Knitting: Washcloth / Dishcloth
I was working on some socks and just couldn’t get the candy canes to look the way I wanted them to. After frogging a few times, I decided to work various ideas with dishcloth yarn. Here’s the result. It made such a nice dishcloth, imho, that I decided to publish the pattern.
Knitting: Shrug / Bolero
This Bolero-type raglan shrug is designed for when you want something to cover your arms and the back of your neck but don’t want anything too heavy. Lace trim adds to its lightness.
Knitting: Ankle Sock
I designed these socks for my DH for his birthday this year. He loves cables -- which this sock has in abundance.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Since the second season of SGU is about to begin, I thought it might be nice to design a Fair Isle SGU hat. I wanted to include a gate address for Destiny. But, I wasn’t sure what else to include until reading Joseph Mallozzi’s weblog of August 28th, 2010 -- which included a picture of Destiny written in Alteran. So, that’s how this hat was born.
Knitting: Ankle Sock
It’s surprising to me that one stitch pattern can produce 2 different looks – depending on how the pattern is placed next to itself. I couldn’t decide which of two different placements I liked better and so decided to publish both this one and its (fraternal) twin – Twin Diamond Spiral Socks. (The stitch pattern in question is Diamond Spiral fr...

Knitting: Pullover
This summery, fitted, yoked pullover is knitted from the top down. It has lace edgings around a large neckline and short, short sleeves. The yoke has a twisted lattice design worked over reverse stockinette. It’s designed to be fairly tight fitting. Gauge is very important to get a correct fit.
Knitting: Pullover
The pattern is available both on Ravelry and on Knit Picks’ IDP website.
Crochet: Ornamental Flower
This is my entry for Ravelympics 2010.
Crochet: Potholder
This circular hotpad uses 2 different colors of leftover yarn (white and burnt orange). The clock effect is produced through the use of elongated double crochet stitches.
Knitting: Washcloth / Dishcloth
This dishcloth is based on the k1b honeycomb pattern from Teva Durham’s pattern Green Sleeves and is a result of a question in a KnittingHelp.com online forum. It’s also the result of my purchase of Elise Duvekot’s book Knit One Below and my attempt to try k1b sts in various forms in a dishcloth before trying anything more complicated.
Crochet: Potholder
Double crochet stitches give this spiral hotpad an unusual look. The sample uses Peaches & Creme Mar-di-Gras yarn leftover from a knit dishcloth. It turned out better than I expected, and so I decided to add it to Ravelry.
Knitting: Curtain
This is my first attempt at making a lace curtain. It’s knit with mercerized cotton thread (size 10) and size 4 needles.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
The pattern came about as the result of a Fair Isle tutorial given by Elizabeth Lovick and a discussion in the Stargate Ravelry group on charting glyphs.
Crochet: Potholder
The pattern is based on a pattern from an old American Thread Company booklet -- which I redid for worsted weight cotton -- and is made with leftovers. Detailed instructions are at a crochet tutorial (which I volunteered to write) -- Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
I designed the sock to show off some yarn dyed by a lady living in the area.
Knitting: Pullover
The pattern is now available in multiple sizes.
Knitting: Scarf
This pattern works with just about any yarn and an appropriate needle size.
Knitting: Skirt
This is my first and only attempt at a skirt. I enjoy wearing it around the house but have worn it only twice “in public”. The skirt is knitted in an acrylic yarn and holds its shape well.
