A matching beret & mitt set which uses less than 150g of DK-weight yarn. The mitts and tam are not identical twins, but use techniques that echo each other, to maintain the knitter’s interest. Ribbing, eyelets, seed stitch, and ripples are present in both, but featured in different ways.

Knitting: Ankle Sock
Ohio is a strong agricultural state, helping feed the country. The state also gave birth to those who dared to dream beyond the bounds of the Earth. The Wright brothers and twenty-four astronauts were born in Ohio, including John Glenn and Neil Armstrong.
Knitting: Sleeveless Top
Knitting is not just for warm woolen sweaters – make yourself something nice and cool while it’s hot. This light, quick tank top mimics a v-neck with its mesh neckline panel, which is then echoed at the hips. With a low back and just a little lace it’s casual and cool. The I-cord edging at the bottom hem gives it a clean, finished look.

Knitting: Beanie, Toque
I love how cables can twist and turn in unusual ways. This beanie is knit from the top down for an easily adjustable fit, with a stylish cable pattern on either side that grows along with the hat. The design is unisex, suiting men and women equally well, and it makes a great gift.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Knit with lace weight yarn doubled (700 yds) or fingering weight yarn (350 yds) - perfect for that precious single skein of hand-dyed yarn that’s been languishing in your stash.
Knitting: Poncho
In linguistics, a ‘garden path’ sentence is one that leads you astray as it is being read. An example is “The old man the boat.” At first glance it may not make any sense, because one initially reads the subject of the sentence as “the old man,” when in fact the subject is “the old” (who man the boat). The sentence is perfectly grammatical, tho...
Knitting: Scarf
Fancy a quick knit in some unique striping yarn?
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
A cabled beanie is a standard piece of knitwear. But who says cables can only go in one direction? The cables on this hat start by twisting around the brim, and then continue up the hat by sliding up towards the crown. While the horizontal brim and vertical body are knit separately, their cables are interwoven together.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
These socks were inspired by the Art Nouveau graphic design and paintings of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. There is a strong vertical element in much of Mackintosh’s work, but the lines are never quite straight. This was an intriguing challenge to translate into knitting, which is made up entirely of straight rows and columns.
Knitting: Slippers
What should one wear while dancing amongst trees in a golden wood? What covers the feet of elves? Surely they would appreciate these silky slippers, covered in leaves and laced with vines.
Knitting: Gloves
These gloves were designed to be simple, yet elegant and classic. Knit at a fine gauge, they will keep your hands warm without being too bulky. Some tiny buttons at the cuff add a beautiful finishing touch.
Knitting: Cowl
Take advantage of long or short color repeats in yarn by using this modular technique. The fan-shaped scales in this cowl are created in a method similar to entrelac – except for that you don’t have to pick up any stitches! If you’ve never worked entrelac before, don’t worry – just follow the instructions as written. After working a tier or two...

Knitting: Beret, Tam
Berets are stylish and tres chic. This beret has a wavy twist due to the eyelet stitch pattern, and resembles more a flower than a disc. It is easy to modify thanks to its top-down construction, and gains a polished look from the tubular bind-off at the end.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
On my way to university in London every day, I always take a minute to admire the majestic Hotel Russell. This massive building is covered with gorgeous intricate stonework. Graceful arches, fluted columns, sculptures of cherubs and coats of arms… Every time I look, I see something new. With the coming of the English winter, I wanted something ...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
A unisex, cabled and textured toe-up sock with short-row heel and mini-gusset. Simple but engaging, a distinctive pattern to knit as a gift or for yourself.
Knitting: Sachet
This pattern - Three Sachets - is actually three patterns in one! It contains knitting instructions for a bag, globe, and pyramid-shaped sachet, perfect for lavender, rose petals, or anything else scented. The bag sachets make great gift bags too!
