“Naturally Yours” is worked seamlessly top-down from the collar to the hem in raglan construction with accented raglan lines, asymmetric sleeve cables and A-line shaped fronts that overlap at the bottom. Short rows slightly elongate the rounded back in comparison to the fronts, creating just the right “natural shape” for a comfortable fit. Waist...
The idea for this garment had been in my head for quite some time until it had matured to perfection. Since its classic shape and sophisticated design details, such as bottom ribbing and button band in sync with the back pattern rhythm and button spacing, also look timeless enough to fit in with any period style, I thought “From Way Back” was ju...
“Anthro” is an elegant cardigan worked from the top down completely seamless. Its timeless design was inspired by the beauty of Anthropologie sweaters and features set-in sleeves with a cable detail, double-knit cuffs and hem in a contrasting color and a button band with rhythmic button sequence.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
“Pleat Up!” is a triangular shawl knit from side to side on the bias in one piece. It’s simple, classic and clean look is broken up by textural elements while shape-changing worked-in pleats account for the slight curvature at the nape side, making this shawl wrap nicely around the shoulders. Especially cozy when knit from a very sof...
This cardigan evolved from the adult sized “Petrichor” cardigan, which in turn resulted from inquiries for sweaters by people who were fond of the stitch pattern in my “Get the Picture” hat. After I had made a cardigan with this stitch pattern for myself to see how the pattern would work out in a sweater, I thought it would be great to knit one ...
This cardigan evolved after I had published my “Get the Picture” hat featuring the same stitch, resulting in a lot of inquiries for sweaters from people who were fond of the stitch pattern (as far as I remember, I think I must have found this stitch pattern on one of those free-stitch-pattern-websites, but I am not 100% sure any more). Subsequen...

Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
“Shades of Pale” is a slightly asymmetrical triangular shawl worked sideways in relaxing garter stitch with simple eyelet rows for variety and easy-to memorize fringe elements on the two longer sides. The fringe is worked as you go in predetermined intervals on the first side, then more fringe is added during the bind-off row on.
Do you belong to those who can’t wait for Spring to arrive, but are reluctant to admit you’re feeling cold without a sweater? If you are like me, then “Xanti” is just the right thing to wear when you want to shed the bundled-up winter look, but still intend to stay warm when you need it.
There are some things in life that just belong together - their very existence depends on the other. And most surprisingly, these symbionts have no idea that they’re helping each other to survive with this most beautiful relationship. While our existence isn’t dependent on yarn, as knitters, we can appreciate the relationship that is...

Named for the color of the yarn, it is also a reminder that autumn brings with it the beginning of a new school year.

For most of us “Zigzag Cardigan” is easier to pronounce, but the true name of this piece should be “Tse Bighanilini ” which in Navaho language means “the place where water runs through rocks.” That is what Navaho Indians call one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen – Antelope Canyon.
