Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This double-brimmed hat with stranded body

Sharply increased front sections of this richly textured shawl are created to fit a curvy figure. Small size (left) is for those with a more petite frame, large (above) will comfortably fit taller folks up to 4XL (or more petite folks who love to cuddle in oversized wooly comfort). The lushly ribbed border and mandarin-style collar add a pop of ...
Crochet: Beanie, Toque
Like a rampart protects an ancient castle, the deep texture and double-layered crown of this top-down hat protects the wearer from the winter cold. Because sizing is based on a target measurement rather than stitch gauge, the pattern can be used with any yarn and hook combination you find pleasing.

Gnarly was written specifically for Wool-Aid ...
Crochet: Baby Blanket

Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
This stranded pattern is based on a design seen often in historic knits. It is known as the Spinning Wheel in the Faroe Islands, and a similar pattern is known as the Sun Wheel in parts of Scandinavia . I am sure has it other names elsewhere.

Other Notions:
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This creation is meant to be worn purl side out, for extra smoothness against the scalp.
Knitting: Cuffs
These cuffs are easy enough to make in just a few hours, and still pack a wow with the easier-than-it-looks cable action. The ribbing details make it a very forgiving fit, and the three sizes I’ve provided mean these could be made for anyone. Choose a bulky luxurious fiber like alpaca or a cashmere blend and your wrists will purr.
