The Brown County Brioche Cowl is intended as a project to introduce knitters to brioche knitting. Though brioche looks similar to ribbing from a distance, it actuallycreates a much loftier fabric. Brioche uses an alternating pattern of slipped stitch witha companion yarn over and knit stitches.
Knitting: Coat / Jacket
The Traveling Jacket was inspired by a fleece jacket that I spotted in a shop at the airport on a business trip. I was walking around waiting for my flight to board and trying to boost the steps on my fitness band! It was cute, and price right, but…. I really did not need it.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Wrapped in Love begins with the knitting. Fingering weight yarn and a simple lace and eyelet border forms a beautiful heart shaped pattern that combines with stockinette stitch to complete this lovely stole. The stole can be worn as a shawl or wrapped loosely around the neck. You will love the knitting and the finished stole!
This basic headband can be customized for any occasion, holiday, team or school. It uses duplicate stitch for the color work. There is a chart for a shamrock and a heart included with the pattern, and there is also a blank chart that you can copy and use for any design or picture of your choosing. The pattern is written for the pictures to be ad...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
The Waved Wrap is scrunchy and reversible. It features a gathering or scrunch stitch that is more concentrated on each end of the shawl. The gathering stitch gives this shawl a scrunchy, textured look. The shawl gradually gets wider, and the gathering stitch less concentrated as you move towards the center. The scrunch stitch is worked by pickin...
Knitting: Feet / Legs - Other
Boot Cuffs are all the rage right now. No need to buy them - you can make them yourself in no time! I am giving you this basic pattern, but you can doctor it up any way you like. This pattern is done in a rib stitch, which makes the cuffs nice and stretchy and also helps them hug the leg rather than slipping down.
This pattern was designed and written in loving memory of David Hobson and Layne Tacy. Both were students at Cathedral High School in Indianapolis and both left this world too soon. Though I did not know either of them well, I could not help but be touched by them and their struggles, and the way their classmates and friends from their school &a...
I designed this sweater and wrote this pattern for my youngest son. He surprised me by asking for a sweater! He plays rugby (though not while he is wearing the sweater) so I decided wide stripes would be just the thing for this rugby inspired sweater. It is a big hit with all the 18 year old boys - and that is a rare gift.
The Infinitely Quick Cowl (or infinity scarf) is a cowl that can be worn long or wrapped around twice for a closer fitting cowl. A part of the Simply Knit, Simply Quick collection, this is a pattern that uses chunky thick and thin yarn and needles that are slightly over-sized. That combination results in a quick knit that really shows off size a...
RRR stands for Ruched, Ruffled, and Reversible! This scarf has great texture generated by the ruched, or gathered stitch that alternates between sides. The scarf also has a garter stitch ruffle along one side, made ruffle-y with short rows! The scarf is worked bottom to top - not side to side.
The Ruched Ruffled Scarf is and elegant scarf knit with worsted weight alpaca. It features a ruffle that utilized short rows, and a pattern stitch that is totally reversible for the main body of the scarf. The scarf is gathered or ruched by picking up stitches further down on the scarf and knitting those stitches together with the live stitches ...
Knitting: Cowl, Beanie, Toque
The hat has a rib stitch hem or facing that folds to the inside and is sewn down to keep you extra warm - mainly because I am kind of wimpy in the cold. The cowl or “neck gator” can be worn folded in half or up to cover the lower portion of your face.
This is a fabulous purse that is quick to knit, yet looks great. This handbag design calls for Noro Daria, one of my favorites for purses because it has such an interesting texture. It is more like a heavy string rather than a traditional yarn. It does not have to be lined, but I prefer it that way.
