The triple gull stitch cable is simple to work, versatile, and just plain pretty. It is distinctive because the cabled stitches are slipped on the row before cabling, forming a longer stitch.

When I wake up in the morning, my greatest desires are, in order, 1) coffee, 2) to hug my cat, and 3) to wrap myself up in a snuggly sweater or blanket. I designed this open-front cardigan to satisfy need #3. It’s super cuddly, warm, and pretty, to boot! The middle of the body features an incredibly easy slip-stitch color pattern- you only...
A bold cable pattern livens up a classic silhouette in the Over the Fence pullover. Simple stockinette sleeves are a good textural contrast to the large-scale cable pattern of the body. A fairly wide neckline means that layering is easy! Throw the sweater on over a button down shirt and you’ve got a sophisticated (and warm!) outfit for the winter.
Bonnets get a bad rap because people think they’re a baby thing, something the Amish wear, or are just plain dorky, but I think they deserve a chance. A bonnet can just plunk onto your head, it never rides up in back (making biking + bonnets the ideal pairing), and there’s the potential for three (three!) pompoms. But if pompoms aren’t you...
The Mouette Mittens (French for seagull) are sure to be an instant classic in your (probably already expansive… but one can never have too many pairs of mittens!) knitted mitten collection. Super soft DK weight yarn makes the mittens supple and not too thick, and the triple gull stitch back makes them fancy.
This boat-neck blouse is worked seamlessly from the top down with a circular yoke. The asymmetrical bottom of the sweater is shaped with short rows and features welts, meant to look like gathers. A button tab “holds” the gathers in place. A pretty lace panel, knitted in a lighter-weight yarn and an easy, one-row pattern, peaks out from under the...
I am a big believer in creative play, dress up, and little kids wearing funny outfits. Make your kid a unicorn hoodie and get all of that in one! The unicorn hoodie is a great spark for kids’ imaginations, and you’ll get a kick out of seeing your child dressed like a mythical creature. Make it in white and silver as shown, or really nerd out and...
I was knitting a cabled swatch while also trying to watch TrueBlood, a most distracting show, and accidentally knitted too many rows between cables, because Eric Northman. The result was pretty cool looking, so I thought, eh, let’s go with it! So I took it even further and made cables that spread out more and more as the hat gets taller, then so...
Knitting: Earflap Hat
My husband is an avid duck hunter who is also pursuing a PhD in the study of animal behavior, namely ducks. Needless to say, we have a lot of ducks in our life. Quite a while ago, he asked me for a knitted hat that looked like a duck, with all of the features 3-D. I thought, no. We have enough ducks. And I knew there was no way I’d go out in pub...
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
A cabled fingerless mitt pattern. The cables “stretch out” as they get closer to the fingers, sort of like they are cascading. Long enough to keep you warm, but not so long that they get in the way, these mitts are fashionable and functional. Use any worsted-weight yarn.
