Welcome to year three of my subscription series! The idea for my first ebook subscription (year one: the pleiades) was born in 2010 while reading posts on Ravelry: people knitting 10 shawls in 2010. I decided to design and knit 10 shawls that year, and at the time I released my first subscription, I had 7 left to do. I made my goal that year, so the next year I was back for more. Today though, I have realized that I simply love doing these subscriptions so much, I won’t even pretend that there’s any other reason to do them! The number 7 is one of my favorites, and I like including the extra accessories. So here comes year three!

Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Bucklebury Beanie is bottom up hat with lots of great texture and a covered button to top everything off. It’s simple to knit with one skein, or add extra yarn for more slouch! Perfect to wear every day. I’m knitting one for everyone in my family! (note: the shawl pictured on model at is Desert Peach, which is not part of this collec...
Knitting: Cuffs
Inspired by the beaded wristers found in many European cultural traditions, Devana Pulse Warmers are a fun and quick knit that produce a lovely gift for a loved one or for yourself. Make sure to use Japanese seed beads; they are very uniform in size and therefore will yield a better result. All beads are prestrung.
Knitting: Hair accessories
Get your knit on any time with these cute scrunchy hair elastics. A great way to try out cable patterns, different cabling techniques, and new yarns and then have a great hair accessory at the end. Does your hair elastic look boring? Cover it! (note: the shawl pictured on the model at top is Ellipses, which is not part of this collection.)
Knitting: Scarf, Cowl
This little scarf is perfect when you have limited amounts of time and yarn. From just one skein and some buttons, you can make this project in a night and wear it or gift it the next day! It’s the poster child for being greater than the sum of its parts. And best of all? Cables, nupps and lace! Fun! How can you miss?
Knitting: Pin Cushion
When I was very young, my mother taught me to sew. She was an amazing tailor, and she gave me my own box of thread, my own pins and thimble, and - best of all - my very own little tomato pincushion filled with sawdust that crunched satisfyingly when I squished it. I kept that cherished possession for years and years and years, until finally - wh...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
A perfect quick bit of lacy fun, this beanie knits up slouchy in Colrain, with its tencel and wool blend adding to the drape. Begin at the center of the crown and knit down. If you don’t have quite enough yarn, bind off early. If you want a longer and slouchier hat and have extra yarn, you can keep knitting the last two rounds until itR...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque, Cloche Hat
Elven Cloche is a top down hat with a chic asymmetrical profile. There are a few eyelets and lots of warm squishy garter stitch around a perfect leaf. Excellent for a winter stroll in the woods or down the Champs-Élysées! (note: the shawl pictured on model at top is River Walk, which is not part of this collection.)
Knitting: Headband, Earwarmers
Gnarled Entling Warmer is a self-faced ear warmer/headband that every member of the family will fight over. There’s cabling and it’s quick and easy, using less than a skein of yarn. It can be finished off by grafting or a three needle bind-off and knits up in record time. Perfect for watching the ski races! (note: the model is wearin...
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
Gnarled Entling Mitts come in two flavors. The first version is knit up with various yarns from my oddments box and they play so nicely together! The braids tie everything together and they are bound off with an i-cord in bulky yarn. The second version is a super simple one - not from oddments box yarn - and I threw it in just for fun, as itR...
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
Gingerbread Mitts - in 4 flavors - will become a staple of your wardrobe and your gift box! With versions to suit your box of odds and ends and versions to suit the most casual or dressy outfit, you will find yourself going back again and again to this pattern! (note: the shawl pictured on model is Melpomene, which is not part of this collection.)
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Fangorn Toque has just a little bit of everything: stranded colorwork, lace, texture, even knitting with roving (that’s the white stripe; I used roving instead of yarn because there’s no white in my oddments box; I love it more than if it were yarn!). Fangorn is the perfect topper to move into cooler fall weather and in some climates...
Knitting: Coaster
These fun little coasters are a super quick knit for a wee Christmas or Hanukkah gift. In red and green the motif is an abstract Christmas tree, and in shades of blue and white it represents a menorah. The coasters are knit with the mosaic knitting technique which uses only one color of yarn per row, with slipped stitches creating a pattern. The...
Knitting: Mittens
Inspired by Selbu mittens, these are a fun way to use two balls (or add odds and ends of other colors too!) of yarn from your oddments box. In true oddments fashion, the mittens begin with a provisional cast-on at the wrist so that the hand can be finished before moving on to the cuff. If you find there isn’t enough yardage, you can add a ...
Knitting: Washcloth / Dishcloth, Scrubber
Not only is this a great little gift with a handmade bar of soap, but it’s also a fantastic way to practice lace techniques and cast-ons. The washcloth is knitted from the center out to the edge, and the soap sack is knitted from the bottom up. Best of all, it takes only one skein of yarn and a little bit of your time.
Knitting: Legwarmers
Everyone needs a great pair of boots, or maybe two or three. Or possibly more? These great toppers work with all sorts of different styles of boots, since they can be worn two ways: the cuff attached with wrong side facing out folds right side out over a boot top, or turn them upside down with a lace top and cabled mid-section like a heavy sock....
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Fairy SnowCap is a top down hat with a giant pompom to finish it off. There’s a little bit of lace and lots of warm snuggly ribbing. Perfect for your next snowy adventure! (note: the shawl pictured on the model at top is Zephyr Cove, which is not part of this collection.)
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Inspired by subterranean waterways, “Artesian” is a triangular shawl with asymmetrical sections of lace spilling over the shawl’s edge.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Important note: the yarns used for this shawl have a nice drape to them and keep a block extremely well. If you decide to substitute a more springy yarn such as a 2-ply merino, you may need to go up in needle size to compensate for bounce-back after blocking, and produce a similarly sized shawl to the samples.

Knitting: Shawl / Wrap

Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
Rivers run through the desert here: the Truckee, the Carson, the Walker. And the first time you come upon one, it’s like finding a treasure: a private oasis of greenery and sparkling water hidden away just for your eyes, the water bubbling and rippling over rocks and washing down into deep pools.
Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
Spring dawns suddenly one day, and the buzzing of bees is loud enough to carry all the way in through the kitchen window. Outside, bunches of pink flowers cover the many thorn bushes. Where there was barren colorless branch throughout the winter, there are now clouds of pink. Desert peaches. Not thorn bushes, they’re desert peaches!
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
“Hill, Romi Hill” I say in answer to the question. I stare up through my eyelashes as I sip my martini, shaken not stirred of course. Wrapped lovingly around my shoulders: cashmere, with the slightest hint of glimmer from the beads around the edge. I am dressed to kill. Literally.

There are alternate charts available for download from this Ravelry page - they are meant to be used WITH the Knitty pattern and not as stand-alone charts.

Knitting: Scarf
The muse of comedy and bucolic poetry, Thaleia literally means “rich festivity” or “blooming.” She is often portrayed with a comic mask, a shepherd’s staff and a wreath of ivy.
Knitting: Beret, Tam
Her name meaning “heavenly,” Urania was the muse of astronomy. With her eyes always looking toward the stars, she was often depicted with a globe in her hand.

This shawl can be knit in three versions: one using fingering weight yarn, and the other two using laceweight. The medium laceweight version features a strip of beaded and sequined cashmere.

Once the muse of singing, Melpomene’s name derives from the Greek melpô or melpomai meaning “to celebrate with dance and song.” Over time, she became the muse of tragedy - particularly tragic theater - and today is often portrayed with a tragic mask in her hand: the opposite of her sister, Thalia, the muse of comedy. Among the ancien...

In high school and then again in grad school, my favorite place was a tiny little narrow bistro called Cafe Trieste, with a deck in the back overlooking the creek. The people watching was fabulous, and a warm but simple wrap to throw dramatically over one’s shoulder would have been just the thing.

After I was asked about modifying my design, Ice Queen to knit flat, it occurred to me that a more summery Queen would be just the thing!
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
The stitch pattern for these socks was a happy accident! I brought the swatch to my Saturday morning knitting group and was knitting away while talking. And, yes, you guessed it; I wasn’t paying attention. I completely misread the chart I had drawn up. When I went back to look at my swatch, though, I loved it! The chart that had seemed a l...

About four years ago, during a difficult time in my life, I was doing what I often do to soothe my nerves: riding my bicycle beside the vineyards near my home. It was a crisp, sunny January day in wine country and I was enjoying the robins when I saw a streak of blue. And then another. Bluebirds! Not the usual Scrub Jays, but real honest-to-good...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
While knitting my Verdigris fingerless mitts for Knitty, I couldn’t help but see what a great sock the stitch pattern would make! This was very uncharacteristic of me, because, you see, since being frightened early on by a sock I knit on US 0s for my husband’s size 13 feet, I had completely lost my desire to knit socks. Sad, but true.

Inspired by the Tokyo sweater by Hanne Falkenberg, the prototype was knit with left-overs from that kit! The name “Toque, Yo!” is a punny homage to the sweater, because…well…I just couldn’t resist. :)
