eBook : 4 patterns

This collection features cable patterns that remind me of the shapes of the sea weeds on the Bay of Fundy, and you’ll find variations of them on each of the pieces.The Ribbon Weed throw and Rock Weed pillow have large cables knit in super-bulky yarn for a dramatic effect. The cables on the Sea Oak pillow are more understated, while the Dulse pillow is a celebration of cables.

Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
These are fun, cozy fingerless mitts to keep you warm on those first cold days of the year. They knit up in a hurry in this thick, gorgeous yarn, so when the forecast becomes foreboding, you can still get them done in time.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Note: It seems that other knitters are not able to get as many rows out of their MC as I did. When starting the project, keep in mind that everyone knits differently, and different styles of knitting will take up different amounts of yarn, even if gauges match. The pattern is written such that it does not matter where you end, but your bottom tr...
Knitting: Pullover
Jodi’s Sweater is a layering piece that’s stylish enough to make a statement, yet cozy enough to be your go-to pullover for lounging around the house. The knitting is straight-forward, but the construction gives it the added twist - literally!
Knitting: Pillow / Cushion
Note: This pattern is also available as part of the Fundy Tides Collection.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This is a fun stripy, ziggy zaggy toque in four sizes from children to adults. With alternating stripes and colourwork, this is a great first project for stranded knitting. You’ll only ever work 2 colours at a time and for a maximum of 10 rows at a time. The in-betweens are simple stripes.
Knitting: Mittens
These stranded mittens pay homage to the sunny skies and gorgeous, tall mountains of Alberta.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Note: I have updated the pattern to make sure the garter stitch tab blends in better with the rest of the edging.

Knitting: Cardigan
Kensington Tweed is a double-breasted piece with a classic look. It can be worn to the office with a blouse and dress pants, or dressed-down with a pair of jeans and boots. This is the kind of jacket that will be a closet staple.
Knitting: Pullover
My boy likes a lot of colour, and would be quite happy to wear the whole rainbow all the time. This is my toned-down version of his vision, lots of colour but not so much that your eyes cross.
Knitting: Sleeveless Top
The Beverly Beach shirt is knit in one piece as a rectangle, starting at the bottom front edge and ending with the bottom back edge. Garter stitch button bands are knit along both sides as you go, with buttonholes along the front and buttons along the back. The buttons join the front to the back, making this a seamless knit.
Knitting: Pullover
Chum’s Pullover is a stylish yet casual men’s sweater featuring a triangular-shaped placket and chunky buttons. The placket adds a touch of interest and style to the piece that is manly enough for even the toughest of men. It is knit in bulky yarn, making relatively short work of a man-sized garment. The piece would look great with a pair ...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Despite my best efforts, my little girl is as girly as they come. When asked what she wanted on her hat the answer was definitively “Hearts, with a butterfly on top.” Well, my girl, ask and ye shall receive. I present you with the girliest hat ever.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
I grew up in an old house with cedar shakes. When I was a teenager those shakes needed to be replaced. My dad, being a carpenter, took on the job himself, and enlisted the rest of the family to help. Imagine what the people driving by thought when they saw my sister, mom and me up on scaffolding, plane and hammer in hand, re-shingling our two-st...
Knitting: Mittens
Paisley is so hot right now. Really. I kept seeing all these beautiful paisley prints in shop windows and on fashionable bodies and I thought - “Why couldn’t I knit me some paisley somethings?” And then I thought - “Mittens, those somethings should be mittens!” And that’s that. I designed some paisley mittens.
Knitting: Skirt
The inspiration for this piece is my friend Helen. She is a very stylish woman who always wears skirts and heels, even if it’s to take her two dogs and 3 year-old son to the park. Helen the lady is classy, sexy and curvy. Helen the skirt is, too. It’s the kind of skirt that would look great worn in the office with a fitted blouse, or to the farm...

Note: I just published an update which fixed a few small issues, clarifies some instructions, and changes the recommended yarn to Knit Picks Brava Sport (Stroll Sport has been discontinued).
Knitting: Cowl
The James Cowl is a cozy neck warmer featuring stranded colourwork, knit in the round. It is suitable for boys and girls, men or women, young or old. While this is a great project for first time steekers, instructions are also given for an unsteeked version that is simply knit in the round.
Knitting: Scarf
I can’t help but think that cashmere feels the need to be touched just as much as we feel the need to touch it. What better place to have it rest than around your neck, giving you a warm hug on blustery days. This beautiful variegated yarn calls for a simple stitch pattern so the colours can be the star of the show. Add a couple of chunky ...
Knitting: Cardigan
This pattern came from a desire for a simple, top-down hoodie with clean lines for easy toddler wear. In order to keep the fabric sleek, ribbing, garter and seed stitch have given way to hemmed edges. To keep the look of a basic hoodie this pattern features an optional zipper closure and front pockets. The decorative ribbon draw-string is not pa...
Knitting: Legwarmers
Sometimes you want to look like you’re wearing a nice chunky sock, but you really don’t want to be wearing a nice chunky sock. Sometimes you want to knit a sock but not have to turn a heel or graft a toe. With this pattern you can cheat and just knit the stylish and easy part! This is a very quick pattern, great for learning cables!
