Knitting: Cardigan
Jean’s Jacket is simple, practical cardigan with delicate feminine details. The marled blue color reminds me of the denim jackets that were so popular in the 1980s, and the tight twist of a sock yarn gives this cardigan the same rugged durability.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Inspired by streaks of purple lightning shooting through a dark sky, this shawl is worked in an asymmetric chevron pattern in two colors. The irregular contrast color stripes are perfect for showing off a bright or highly variegated yarn, or that special leftover skein. The simple lace pattern will make the knitting go as fast as lightning!
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This shawl combines two different stitch patterns to create a fabric that reminds me of rain falling on water. Short row wedges and a wavy edge add to the watery feel, while the double yarn overs in the mesh pattern mimic thousands of raindrops.
Knitting: Cowl
The Primrose Path cowl is a sweet little bit of lace to drape around your neck. In 100% silk yarn, it’s the perfect accessory for cool Autumn days. Worked entirely in the round, without a purl stitch in sight, it will fly off your needles in no time!
Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
The Twin Cities of Pineville and Alexandria are both joined and separated by the Red River. The geographic center of Louisiana, this area has become my second home and this pattern was designed for the friends I’ve made there.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
The name Downtown Alley comes from my mother’s mispronunciation of the name of our favorite show, Downton Abbey. Although these fingerless gloves were inspired by the elegant long gloves worn by the ladies on the show, they would be quite out of place at Highclere Castle. The opposite of High Street fashion, Downtown Alley fingerless gloves are ...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
The fifth pattern in the eBook Knitting The Beach, Sand is an asymmetrical shawl worked in a delicate lace pattern with a bold border. The shawl is finished with dramatic i-cord loops across the bound-off edge. Sand will look stunning in gradient, tonal, or self-striping yarns.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
The last pattern in the six shawl collection Knitting The Beach, Surf is worked in a delicate lace pattern with a dramatic edge, perfect for showing off your self-striping, gradient, or tonal yarns. The simple, stockinette-based lace creates little waves in the fabric while the bold edging keeps the knitting interesting.

The fourth pattern in the Beach Collection, Shore is a triangular lace shawl worked from side-to-side that features a new take on an old lace pattern.

Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
The third pattern in The Beach Collection, Tide is a triangular shawl worked side-to-side in a simple, repetitive lace pattern, which is well suited to highly variegated yarn. Choose the wildest skein from your stash and watch the colors subtly swirl around the eyelet stripes! The side–to-side construction makes a shallow triangle shape that gro...

The second pattern in the e-book Knitting the Beach, Current is a crescent shaped shawl worked in an undulating lace pattern that resembles the current moving through water. The shawl grows quickly with increases worked on the edge of both right and wrong side rows. Three sizes are given in the pattern, with both written and charted instructions...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Wake is a pretty little crescent shaped shawl that can be wrapped around the neck like a scarf or draped over the shoulders. A center panel of ever-widening eyelets mimics the wake, the waves that follow a boat moving through the water. A rippling lace rib is mirrored on either side of the center panel, with increases worked into the pattern. Di...
Knitting: Cardigan
Miss Suzanne is a casual, comfortable cardigan that is as easy to knit as it is to wear. This open style cardigan takes its name from one of my knitting friends, a lady who always looks effortlessly stylish and put together. Miss Suzanne is the kind of sweater you’ll want to wear over pajamas on a lazy Sunday morning, or throw on as you run out ...
Knitting: Cowl
Brittany’s buttoned cowl is a warm and versatile piece of neck wear. The combination of cables and lace make this cowl both delicate and cozy, while the toggles allow for it to be worn in several different ways. The length is easily adjusted by working more or fewer repeats of the main pattern and the buttons keep even a short scarf securely aro...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Madeline was designed to make the most of one skein of hand-dyed yarn. The loose gauge creates a fabric with drape even when using a tightly spun sock yarn. The work begins at the upper right corner and gradually increases to the left edge. A simple lace edging is worked along with the body of the shawl and curves around to finish the bound off ...
