This shawlette is the perfect addition to your wardrobe. A semi-solid yarn in your favorite color combined with the geometric lace in this pattern and you will be turning some heads. Drape it around your shoulders and pin with a pretty shawl pin or wrap around your neck like a kerchief. And, why not some mitts to match the shawl? I don’t know about you, but as a knitter, I am rarely wearing coordinating accessories. I have been seen wearing a brightly-colored striped scarf, a pastel hat and pretty Fair Isle mittens all at the same time. So, if you have already worked up the Willoughby shawl, grab another skein of yarn and whip up these mitts. Sometimes, it’s nice to match.

My favorite part of knitting a sock is the turning the heel. I love the magic of using short rows to create the proper shape for your foot. Using that same technique for a shawl makes sense to me. By working short rows, you end up with a beautiful crescent-shaped shawl that can be worn a variety of ways. Aullwood is a short row shawl, started at...

I love to buy some wild and crazy yarns. I get lured in by the color combinations and color transitions where two colors meet and form a color I swear I have never seen before. These yarns often end up sitting in the stash, because I can never seem to find the right pattern to show off their variegated goodness. Enter the Abelia socks. Using sli...

The entire time I was working on this hat I kept calling it ‘the magical beanie’ in my head. Why? With all that ribbing it can fit a variety of heads and will magically grow to the right size. Calling that it my head led me to start thinking about that episode of The Office where Jim trades Dwight junk for some magical legumes. And so the name o...
