Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
The Arrow socks use a simple knit-purl pattern to showcase the smooth texture and color of the yarn. These socks are a great straightforward knit, perfect for last minute gift knitting if you need a quick project. Ribs run down the sides of the sock and continue on the foot all the way down the toe. This pattern is easy to modify for a longer or...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
The Mint Twist socks have twirling cables within a repeating lace diamond motif used throughout the leg. The top of the foot transitions to stockinette stitch for smoothness and to get the most mileage out of the yardage, since the leg is heavily textured. The row gauge is surprisingly tight due to the diagonal elements, so when the sock is stre...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
The Circe socks feature a swirling leaf pattern which is created from the biasing of the lace pattern. Left and right socks are mirrored, and the asymmetrical gusset shaping is formed using decreases within the lace pattern and one decrease in the usual gusset area.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
The Vamp socks are inspired by … you guessed it, vampires. These socks feature diagonal twisted cable panels that join in a V at the top of the foot. The V is both for Vampire and perhaps a vampire fang. The panels also form a diagonal frame with nested knit and purl diamonds.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
This sock features cables and a ribbed arch. The instructions include charts and written instructions.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
These socks feature an open lacy pattern on the front of the leg and top of the foot, and ribbing on the back. The pattern is given as a chart only.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
The Spock socks are named after my favorite Star Trek character. Spock hails from the planet Vulcan where the standard greeting is to make a V with one’s fingers and to say “Live long and prosper.” While knitting the Spock socks, you’ll see that the pattern makes this same type of V. I also think of socks are being fairly logical, but your milea...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
The Tiberius socks are named after Captain James Tiberius Kirk. They are straight shooting socks, just like our favorite Star Fleet captain, using Japanese eyelets and twisted rib. If you prefer a more “manly” sock with less hole-y-ness, you can knit the yarnovers through the back on the following round to close them up. I think they’d be perfec...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Dizzy features large reverse stockinette and rib chevrons. This pattern includes 3 sizes, all charted, with mirrored left and right socks. By shifting stitches around, the horizontal waving bands of reverse stockinette blend in seamlessly without a jog. You’ll spin around, dizzy with delight!
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
This pattern has been updated from its original format. The new version has simplified streamlined charts and 2 additional sizes.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
The Tulip socks have a simple lace pattern that evokes the broad delicate leaves of tulips.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Ernie is named after the jolly Keebler elf and is the type of sock I can imagine a woodland cookie-loving elf to wear. Ernie features a vertical leaf and rib pattern. If you are a loose purler, you may want to make a smaller size than usual.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Newton features a broad lace leaf motif down the front and back, separated by cables down the sides. If you are a loose lace knitter, these socks may stretch a lot with blocking. If you are a tight knitter, you may want to go up a size.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
The Flight socks feature a feathery openwork pattern and twisted ribbing. The feather motif will bring a light and airy quality to your steps.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks

Knitting: Coat / Jacket
In topology, a quotient space “glues together” pieces in an unusual way using an equivalence relation. This can lead to interesting topological spaces such as the Möbius strip and the Klein bottle. By applying that principle to minimally shaped knitted pieces, this jacket has unique curves and drape.
Knitting: Cardigan, Shrug / Bolero
This seamless bolero-style cardigan begins with a cabled back that is worked flat back and forth with shaping. The sleeves are picked up and worked in the round with decreases, creating a cone shape. The fingering weight yarn has drape and makes this an easy-to-wear piece.
Knitting: Cowl
What happens when you attach two ends of a rectangle together? You get a cylinder. This cowl uses the same texture and basic shape of the Rectangle vest but on a much smaller scale and adds in a button band. It requires only one skein of yarn and makes a perfect quick knit.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This cozy hat features a twisted rib buckled band that is worked flat. Stitches are picked up along the edge of the band and joined for working the crown of the hat in the round in a dome shape. The strap and buckle can easily be adjusted for circumference.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Gyokuro is named for a high grade Japanese green tea where the leaves are fully intact and grown in shade to give it a brighter color and smoother flavor.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Jedi Mind Tricks features a unique and bold textured stitch pattern. “Do or do not. There is no try.” - Yoda
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Everybody’s feet deserve to be pampered, and what better way than a quick pair of socks? The Lateral socks take the same stitch pattern as Obtuse but play it straight instead of angled.
Knitting: Pullover
This turtleneck pullover is created by seaming together two pieces and then picking up and working the neck and arm cuffs in the round. With minimal shaping and simple textures, the intrigue is in the angles formed. While the piece is left-right asymmetrical, front and back can be interchanged.
Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
There are two versions of this pattern, a scarf and shawl (pictured), both worked in a parallelogram shape with a knit-purl diamond pattern throughout. Starting with only 6 stitches, the shape is worked from tip to tip on the bias.
Knitting: Pullover
A cowl neck can be created by taking a standard pullover shape and pivoting the armholes outward on the front to allow for more fabric. This drapey cowl neck sweater is worked in lace weight yarn and features a simple twisted rib panel down the spine.
Knitting: Cardigan, Shrug / Bolero
Worked in a soft and creamy worsted weight wool, this seamless cardigan combines a variety of twisted rib stitch work that emanates radially along the cone-shaped sleeves. With a plain stockinette back and ribbed sleeves and band, this cardigan is a surprisingly quick and easy knit.
Knitting: Vest
This vest is actually a rectangle with two holes for the arms. Worked in combination of braided cables and garter stitch, the texture and drape of this simple shape is elegant and elongating. Throw it over anything, belt it or just let it hang.
Knitting: Cardigan
The right front piece of this cardigan is worked on the bias, as if the whole piece has been rotated a few degrees clockwise. Hold it closed with a single button or allow it to drape open—the edging details look great on both sides.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
Because the yarn for the Slope pullover has such generous yardage, these fingerless mitts are a great project for leftovers. Using the same slanted lace stitch pattern but at a tighter gauge, the Slant mitts will keep hands warm but functional for operating cameras or other devices.
Knitting: Pullover
This asymmetrical lacy pullover has one drop sleeve and one raglan sleeve which create an angled slope on the body. The main body is worked all in one long piece with a hole for the neck. With no bulky seam along the top of the dropped shoulder, the drape there is smooth and flattering.

Sólfar is named after the iconic sculpture on Reykjavik’s waterfront designed by Jón Gunnar Árnason. Sólfar translates to “sun voyager” and is a modern sculpture of a “dreamboat”, and ode to Iceland’s rich history with the sea. The curves and symmetry of the sculpture translated well into the stitches of a sock, taking on an almost floral appear...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
The Reykjavik socks are modeled after an iconic Icelandic landmark, the Hallgrimskirkja cathedral, which is visible from all over Reykjavik and is quite an impressive sight with such elegant lines and simplicity. I designed the socks so that when looking down at your feet, you will catch a glimpse of Icelandic architecture down to your toes. The...

The Nanaimo socks are simple and cozy, with the left and right socks mirroring one another. The knit and purl pattern is nice and calming and perfect for gift knitting for men and women who don’t like too much fuss.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
The Turbulence socks have lots of fancy stitchwork and patterning that somehow comes together in an orderly fashion. Twisted stitches, yarnovers, strange pass over eyelets, cables, you name it—many of the knitting creatures from under the sea are represented here. The stitches in the Turbulence socks intertwine and wrap around each other, creati...

Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
The Slide socks are a traveling rib sock that angles the rib down the leg and the foot, just like a playground slide. These were inspired by the color of the yarn. I love the simplicity of these, and of course the pair is mirrored.

Daphne is feminine but a little nerdy. The ebbing lace pattern is simple but showcases the texture of the yarn.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Swathes of stockinette create an almost swirling V from the side profile which are separated in the front by garter stitch diamonds. Depending on what angle you view Velma from, you might find the pattern blunt and textured, or you might find it elegant and sophisticated. Either way, Velma is a lot of fun and not just what first meets the eye.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
The Jubilee pattern pairs a variation on garter stitch with mirrored lace panels. It’s simple, textured, and just plain fun.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Orange Pekoe showcases bold leaves that mirror each other in the right and left socks. The name is a reference to a system of grading tea leaves. The full leaves in the Orange Pekoe sock pattern are fitting because the highest grades of tea have full unbroken leaves.

Boysenberry Yo features twisted ribbing that flows into a simple lace pattern on the leg and foot. The pattern contains both written and charted directions.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
The PB&J socks feature two twisted stitch cabled panels, one that reminds me of spreading peanut butter and another that looks like berries. They travel around the sock and cross over one another, but they never actually mix. My confession: I never liked peanut butter and jam together. Separately, absolutely, but never the two should mix for...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
There are two versions to this pattern - Straight Laced and Twisted. The Straight Laced pattern features a panel that continues from the top of the foot to the toe. The Twisted version has traveling ribs that begin at the heel flap and travel across the top of the foot.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
The Ripple Leaf pattern combines earth and sea elements reminiscent of waves and leaves. Depending on your perspective, you’ll see the ocean or forest or both. Because travel has been a large part of my life, these socks include a traveling component across the top of the foot of the sock after which they transition to stockinette. Perhaps this ...
