Knitting: Tee
This simple raglan top is worked from the top down with a little side shaping and finished with a picot hem. A great intro to top down knitting, this pattern works up quickly. This pattern would be a good 1st sweater for a new knitter.
Knitting: Sleeveless Top
This tank is made from the bottom up with a minimum of shaping and i-cord straps. A good one for an advanced beginner to try. I grafted the straps to make them seamless though these could be sewn. The armholes are on the deep side making it a good layering piece.

Knitting: Poncho
I wasn’t planning on designing another capelet but I was asked to design a knit version for the crochet Magnum Capelet #4. I wanted to try and mimic the stitch I used for the crochet version and also make it reversible. I played around with brioche techniques to come up with this reversible stitch pattern. I like the versatility of being a...

This vest is reversible in that for a larger collar and a shorter vest wear with the longer side up. For a smaller collar and longer vest wear the short side up.
Knitting: Pullover
There are a few challenging techniques in the construction of this sweater that make it for the intermediate knitter. Invisible or provisional cast on, brioche honeycomb stitch & kitchner stitch are all used. If you’re an advanced beginner and like a challenge this would be a good piece to challenge yourself with.
Knitting: Sleeveless Top
This top is made by working 2 flat panels in an openwork pattern then joining to work the bottom section in the round. The openwork section, a wide neck and generous side openings make this a perfect summer “T”. I would rate this for at least an advanced beginner.

Knitting: Cardigan, Vest
The BagSmith’s Big Stitch Bundle is made up of 6 different yarns (@88yds each) bundled together with most of them being hand dyed together so all 6 yarns match though the Big Stitch Bundle I used for the shoulders, collar & bottom section has the same tone throughout.
Knitting: Pullover
This sweater is worked in a “T” shape cuff to cuff and from the top down in Stockinette St. This pattern is not for the pedestrian knitter as your participation is needed in making it a perfect fit for your size. Sizes are easy to adjust as you work and will be noted. The numbers provided form the framework and a starting point while making modi...
Knitting: Cardigan, Coat / Jacket
This jacket is worked from the top down in a raglan style using stockinette stitch with garter stitch finishing on the collar, facings & cuffs. The use of different increases being the most difficult part of this jacket would make me rate it fairly easy, a great 1st sweater for a beginner looking to challenge themselves. It’s really mo...
Knitting: Pullover
This pattern has 2 versions of the same design. The lavish version is a more dramatic sweater with longer, fuller sleeves and a collar that can change from a deep cowl neck to off the shoulder while the moderate is a toned down version you could wear to the office.

Knitting: Hats - Other
This is a reversible hat. Double thickness for extra warmth. The loftiness of Misti Alpaca compressed nicely into a worsted; do not use a chunky weight yarn unless you can get gauge.

Knitting: Vest
This is a reverse stockinette stitch vest with the collar, front facings & armhole finishing worked in garter stitch.
Knitting: Shrug / Bolero
One size fits most because of how the openwork pattern stretches. I had a trunk show and saw this piece on many body types; it looked great on all of them. The bolero uses one skein of Magnum and #17 & #19 needles, straight or circulars since the piece is worked flat.
Knitting: Neck / Torso - Other
This capelet is an addition to the Openwork Bolero Pattern, so 2 patterns are included in this pattern.
