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.

Let me Elucidate: I love versatility. And with the Elucidate hat, it’s like you get two in one. Knit from the bottom up, this hat has a generous reversible cabled brim that transitions into lots of glorious, slouchy stockinette. However, if the day is extra brisk, the brim can be folded up for double thickness over the ears, converting the hat ...

As a knitter, I think the best projects are the ones that look super-complicated and impress non-knitters but which are actually super-easy to do. For this pattern, I wanted to explore alternating twisted rib with diagonal mesh… and when I swatched the simple two-row repeat, I was astounded at how it turned out. The intuitive pattern created fa...

For the first hat in the Kino Knits E-Book collection, I’ve gone bold: bold in style, and bold in technique. A long gradient MC works its way up the hat in simple garter, while a dynamic panel showcases the gradient in arrows pointing up. Let’s Elevate your hat game and Elevate your skills: this hat is knit flat, back and forth, with stranded c...

My husband and I spent our 10th anniversary on different continents. I was in Kenya for work and we agreed that for our anniversary I would acquire a piece of art.

In what can seem like a politicized black-and-white world, it turns out there’s often a lot of gray. I had a vision of this shawl years ago. I’d lived in multiple countries where negotiating skills were key for navigating the local markets. Two sides start out diametrically opposed, and they gradually bend and flex until they come to a middle g...

I love classic, squishy sweaters on children – but it can be hard to find on that looks equally great on boys and girls. Caius is a raglan sweater knit in the round from the bottom up and features a dynamic center panel that looks great in a variety of yarns. Caius is designed for the littlest littles up to age 6 and has a wide neck opening so ...

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 c...

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 ...

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...
