Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
The lace motif on this bias-knit shawl was inspired by traditional Ethiopian embroidery. This is typically done on white or natural cotton, which is why the model piece shown is done in white cotton yarn as well. However, the shawl will also work beautifully in a variety of fibres and colours.
Knitting: Baby Blanket
This blanket’s unique construction is achieved by using short rows, with the ‘holes’ that this creates incorporated into the design. This allows you to make a sizable blanket completely in one piece, without the need for a super-long circular needle. All you need to do at the end is a row of grafting (instructions included in p...
Knitting: Cowl
Legend has it that the beauty of the Kalayan Minaret, in Bukhara, Uzbekistan, is so inspiring that it was the only structure spared by Genghis Khan when he razed the city in the thirteenth century. Looking at it today, it is not difficult to see why this might be true. From its base to the top of its rotunda – approximately 150ft - section upon ...
Knitting: Baby Blanket
This pattern is a combination of mindless and intricate. There’s a ton of stocking stitch, which is great for times when you just need to keep your hands busy; and there are lots of involved cables, for times when you are able to concentrate harder. The result is a blanket which appears simultaneously simple and complex, and beautiful all over.
Knitting: Bib
What better way to show love for a little one than a bib filled up with hearts? And this bib’s smaller size makes it great for catching both food spills and teething-induced drool! It’s reversible, so you can flip it for the next feeding if the first side gets messy. It’s double-thick, so it’s extra-absorbent. And it fits on over baby’s head, so...
Knitting: Bib
Tartan patterns are wonderful for babies – you can go with subtle, soft colours for a delicate look; bright, vibrant colours for a cheerful look; or mix and match! No matter what your colour choices end up being, this bib is wonderful for mealtimes. It’s reversible, so you can flip it for the next feeding if the first side gets messy. It’s doubl...
Knitting: Earflap Hat
All profits from sales of this pattern will be donated to Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières. Thank you for your support!
Knitting: Scarf
This is a fairly easy project - beginners having experience with or a willingness to try decreases and yarn-overs will be able to complete this pattern.
Knitting: Poncho
Something new to do with sock yarn!
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Babies and children can totally pull off the fun look of having a carousel on top of their heads! But the pattern contains suggestions for sizing it up (as well as down, for newborns) in case there are any adults who like the idea, too. :) Pom-pom is optional.
Knitting: Cuffs
The old-fashioned look of gingham is given a fresh new feel in these lovely wristwarmers. The top and bottom are exact reverse images of each other, and in fact, the wristwarmers can be flipped upside-down if you want the opposite colour on top – or wear one upside-down and one right-side up, whatever strikes your fancy! The bamboo yarn used to ...
Knitting: Cardigan
This scrumptious little cardigan is worked all in one piece, so there’s no seaming up to do once the knitting is finished. Just weave in the ends, sew on a button, and you’re done!
Knitting: Bib
All budding little geniuses should grow up being familiar with this deliciously geeky variation of the classic rock-paper-scissors hand game. Even if your little one prefers to chew plastic letters instead of contemplating algebraic topology, this game will definitely come in handy as a decision-making tool when Junior starts begging for another...
Knitting: Sleeveless Top
This is essentially a sampler of easy stranded, lace and texture patterns. Therefore, it’s a perfect project for enthusiastic beginners who want to try out these techniques. Don’t be intimidated!
Knitting: Bib
This bib works up fairly quickly, for a double knitting project. It’s reversible, so you can flip it for the next feeding if the first side gets food on it. It’s double-thick, so it’s extra-absorbent. It fits on over baby’s head, so it’s hard for wee ones to take it off themselves. And of course, it’s very cute.
Knitting: Vest
This is a deliciously squishy seed stitch garment that will make a little one even more huggable than usual – especially when you get a look at the cabled heart motif on the back! It’s a layering piece, which can donned quickly and easily for extra warmth. Unisex construction means that you can re-sew the buttons on either the left or right band...
Knitting: Bib
Zombies and babies have one thing in common – they are very messy eaters! Whether the cause of your personal laundry apocalypse is pablum or brains, a good bib can make all the difference. And this one has a lot of advantages. It’s reversible, so you can flip it for the next feeding if the first side gets messy. It’s double-thick, so it’s extra-...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Dead dopey simple. Hardly constitutes a pattern, really. Also now included is the duplicate stitch chart for the “AFK” lettering I used for my BIL’s Christmas present hat.
Knitting: Baby Blanket
This pattern contains a simple repeating lace motif that should be easy for beginners to follow.
Knitting: Cardigan
Yarn requirements:
Knitting: Legwarmers
Too simple to be called a pattern, really. Excruciatingly simple. Any sock yarn will do.
Knitting: Toy Food
This amigurumi pattern was made up so I could make some mini cupcakes for the wedding of Carin of the Round the Twist video podcast. It’s a delicious combination of knitting and Doctor Who geekery. You can make whatever colour of Dalek you want! Any sock yarn will do.
Knitting: Bib
A good bib can make the difference between your favourite baby looking like a pig, or a dainty little bird. :) This bib has a lot of advantages. It’s reversible, so you can flip it for the next feeding if the first side gets messy. It’s double-thick, so it’s extra-absorbent. It fits on over baby’s head, so it’s hard for wee ones to take it off ...
Knitting: Scarf, Beanie, Toque
I knitted this hat-and-scarf set on the fly during charity knit nights at my local yarn store. In case anyone else was interested in making it, I redacted the pattern from a combination of photographs and my own memory. This unfortunately means that I can’t vouch for the precision of the measurements or the yarn required, but there should still ...

Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Christmas 2008, for my older daughter’s teacher, I knitted Myrrhia Resneck’s lovely “Ilaisa’s Wristies”, a fingerless glove pattern that works with many different yarn weights. I had three balls of a nice variegated worsted weight which I wanted to use, and after the wristwarmers were finished, there were almost two full balls left over.
Knitting: Toy Food
This amigurumi pattern was made up so I could make some mini cupcakes for the wedding of Carin of the Round the Twist video podcast. It’s a delicious combination of knitting and Firefly geekery. (Of course, if you want to just have a regular-looking cupcake, you can eliminate the striping and just go with a single colour for the whole icin...
Knitting: Baby Blanket
This is a very large and time-consuming project which requires a fair bit of concentration to make sure the charts are followed correctly; but the result is a gorgeous and sizeable baby blanket, twice as thick and warm as most other knitted blankets. It incorporates ‘step’ and ‘key’ motifs inspired by traditional designs ...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
This pattern is fiddly and takes a lot of concentration because of all the intarsia it requires, but if you feel the end result is worth it, then you’ll like the payoff.
Knitting: Cardigan
This was designed as a baby gift for a co-worker who likes fashion and accessories. So I thought she would enjoy the texture motif on this little cardigan for her wee one! Minimal seaming, raglan sleeves, and a single button at the top also add to its appeal.
