Knitting: Cowl
This simple, cozy cowl makes the most of fabulously dyed fingering weight yarn. It is completely reversible and surprisingly easy to knit! Use Caterpillargreen Yarns’ Blue Light colourway, which can be divided into two skeins for coordinated colour perfection, or choose your own adventure with two colours of any fingering weight yarn.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Finding a hat pattern that is both cozy and flattering can be maddening. The March Hare hat was designed to look good and feel great over both short and long hairstyles. The sideways knit brim frames your face without squashing your hair too much; and the unique pleated crown decreases create flattering volume and visual interest at the back of...
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
The March Hare Mitts are crazy cute. A welted, sideways-knit cuff is echoed in the i-cord bind-off, while sweet pom poms in a contrasting colour add a bit of fun. Matching design elements can also be found in the March Hare Hat for a cozy set that knits up quickly. These comfy little mitts will keep your hands toasty, but won’t add so much warm...
Knitting: Cowl
For many knitters, the rhythm of our needles and the slip of our stitches is a huge part of daily life. It is our passion, our therapy, and our creative outlet. It is a wooly heartbeat that underscores much of what we do and how we see ourselves. This cowl was inspired by two great things: the rhythm of our knitting and some really fantastic ya...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Many a spinner strives to create the perfect sock yarn. However, lots of other handspun yarns would excel as socks: the accidental sport weight, the two-ply in need of an extra tight gauge, the DK weight boot sock yarn, or the fluffy, too-soft-to-be-anything-but-bed-socks merino. They need knitterly love too!
Knitting: Cowl
I love spinning beautiful colours and fibres, but it can be tricky to find a single skein project that shows off my yarny handiwork. Enter the SABLE Scowl - a single skein project featuring the wearability of a cowl and the styling of a shawl. It uses 100g (3.5oz) of any yarn weight, uses every last yard of your precious skein, and shows off gr...
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
These fingerless mitts are a fantastic way to use hand painted, highly variegated, striping, or otherwise persnickety dye jobs to their best potential. It would also make a lovely, subtle accessory with unisex appeal if worked in a solid or tonal yarn. The unique slipped stitch floats zoom up the mitt, breaking up pooling and showing off little...
Knitting: Cowl
Some people call a rippled patch where a light breeze has ruffled the otherwise smooth ocean surface a “cat’s paw.” It looks like a giant, invisible feline has left fleeting paw prints behind while bounding across the water. This cowl, with its reflective symmetry and diagonal mesh centre, reminds me of glassy smooth water interrupted by patche...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Angelus is a striped crescent shaped shawl worked in garter stitch and finished with a knitted-on cabled edging. It is a great pattern for a knitter looking to dabble in simple samples of several techniques; stripes, slipped stitches, lace, cables, and intarsia. This shawl, with its architectural lines and smooth shaping, is the perfect complem...
Knitting: Coat / Jacket
My husband likes to joke that Canada is much like C. S. Lewis’ magical land of Narnia where it’s always winter, but never Christmas. Ironically, we live in the only part of Canada where it rarely snows, but he persists. When I began to design this coat for our daughter, I wanted it to be warm enough for the harsh, Narnian winters we supposedly ...
Knitting: Dress
Inspired by my daughter’s current favourite word, ‘Birdie!’ this classic jumper is for children 18 months to 6 years old. Birdie is dressy enough for family photos, but comfortable and sturdy enough to run and jump in all day. A linen stitch bodice provides coverage and structure over a high empire waist, and a lace pattern inspired by feathers...
Knitting: Cowl
The first time I saw a picture of the spectacular fan vaulted ceiling in the chapel of the University of Cambridge’s King’s College, I was spellbound. If anything first kindled my passion for art history, this was it. The King’s College Cowl is inspired by the expanding ribbed forms in the vault, the delicate arched support columns, and the exp...
Knitting: Cowl
The repeating pattern of concentric squares and the interplay of colours in this cozy cowl are inspired by the mesmerizing geometric paintings of artist Frank Stella.
