Two designers + two yarns = inspiration through collaboration.

eBook : 4 patterns

Two designers + two yarns… and inspiration through collaboration. Each designer independently creates an accessory, then sends only a photo of the finished object to the other. In response, the designers use the same yarn to create a new accessory inspired by the first, thus making a set. The only limits are their creativity.

Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
The Maribou stork is about the ugliest bird I can imagine, with a warty pink face. However, even at about 3 feet tall, they manage to delicately perch on the tops of narrow street lights and fly in majestic arcs through the sky. Though I hate driving through downtown Nairobi, I love one stretch of the main road because the Maribou storks have cl...

Any fan of the Prairie Girls Knit and Spin podcast has been endlessly amused by Prairie Girl Danie’s massive order of black sock yarn. Jokes abounded about what she would do with any leftovers.

I created this slightly slouchy hat for my stepdad, an elementary school principal who greets the carpool line on chilly mornings. As attractive inside-out as right-side-out, it’s also the perfect unisex grab-and-go hat for harried parents whose morning cup of coffee hasn’t kicked in yet. The hat is knit top-down in the round and can be easily m...

Knitting: Baby Blanket
The “Sweet Faux Hawk” baby blanket is based on the classic mitred square, but there are a few things that make it unique. One is the chain ridge running up the center of each garter mitred square (the faux hawk). The other is that the squares are oriented diagonally, but the blanket is still square, thanks to filling in the edges with triangles ...
