Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
These unisex socks use a simple knit and purl pattern to create the effect of swirling lines and break up the pooling that sometimes occurs with hand-dyed yarn. Wear them swirling toward each other or away from each other, depending on your mood (and your attention span when getting dressed).
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap

Knitting: Cowl
Vibrantly colored yarn and a swirling colorwork pattern come together to create a cozy cool weather accessory. This cowl works up quickly using two colors of Rios, and the stranding on the inside creates extra warmth.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
A band of stranding in the form of a swirling colorwork pattern adds warmth and fit to this hat. This topper can be knit up in an evening or two and is a good way to use up partial skeins of beautiful hand-dyed yarn.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
An easy entree into the world of top-down shawls, Embossed Lines uses the textures of stockinette and reverse stockinette to show off the beauty of a hand-dyed sock yarn. A bit of lace in the form of yarnover increases and an eyelet edging add lightness. When your ends are woven in carefully, you will end up with a piece that is fully reversible.
Knitting: Headband, Earwarmers
The inspiration for this headband/ear warmer was a leftover skein of a cashmere-blend yarn that was too soft and pretty to toss back into the stash -- I wanted it to keep me warm!
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Intermingling is a new take on the basic garter triangle, using a two-color slip stitch edging and a frilly bind off.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
These mitts are a perfect use for that leftover sock yarn that’s not quite enough for a pair of socks but too much to just toss. The twisted ribbing that’s a key feature of the mitts provides both visual interest in the form of texture and a snug fit.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Designed to show off the beauty of a hand-dyed yarn, Diminishing Returns uses alternating sections of stockinette and garter to add texture to a great dye job.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
The companion shawl to Diminishing Returns, Incremental Growth uses the simple textures of stockinette and garter stitch to show off the beauty of a single skein of hand-dyed fingering weight yarn.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque, Cloche Hat
Pryce is a bottom-up hat with a short-row welt detail that adds a bit of pizzazz to an otherwise simple shape. Use it to show off that precious skein of one-of-a-kind hand-dyed (or even handspun) yarn.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Worked from the cuff down, these socks use directional decreases and yarnovers to create a swirling lace pattern that is intuitive and easily memorized. They feature a twisted rib cuff, an Eye of Partridge heel flap and gusset, and a wide toe.
Knitting: Cardigan
Knit entirely seamlessly from the top down, this sweater is the perfect outer layer for those transitional times of year and as a layering piece during the coldest months. A cozy rolled collar and long, fitted sleeves help to block out the chill.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This unisex hat is worked from the brim to the crown. Using only one skein of yarn (or less!), it’s a quick knit when you need a hat in a hurry. Beginning with a garter rib brim, the hat features columns of slipped stitches that transition seamlessly into the crown decreases.
Knitting: Cowl
The Ruche and Welt Cowl features an interesting texture that looks complex but is relatively easy to achieve and allows a hand-dyed yarn to shine. The finished cowl can be worn in several different ways, providing versatility and flexibility. Worked in a wool/silk blend, it is both warm and soft and has great drape.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This bottom-up hat starts with a garter stitch brim that is worked flat and features a short-row detail and a one-row buttonhole. After the brim is complete, the work is joined in the round and worked in stockinette through the crown. As written, the hat is slightly slouchy; more length can be added for a slouchier fit.
Knitting: Mittens
This stranded mitten pattern features mirrored designs on the right and left hands, with a different pattern on the palms. Knit from the cuff up, it features corrugated ribbing and a thumb gusset. The top is finished with grafting a small number of stitches together.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This shawl is the perfect thing when you want something a little more exciting than plain garter stitch (but not too much of a challenge) and something warm without having to commit to a whole sweater.
Knitting: Baby Blanket
This lace baby blanket features the Gothic Leaf Lace stitch pattern framed by simple yet classic garter stitch. Designed as a gift for a new mother, it is intended to be an easy care item; the lace needs little more than a gentle smoothing to open up.
Knitting: Beret, Tam
This stranded colorwork tam is a great first project for a beginner in stranded colorwork. Only two colors of yarn are used for the hat, but using a color-changing yarn with long color repeats gives the illusion of a greater level of complexity than there actually is.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This garter stitch shawl is worked from one side to the other and uses short rows to create a ruffle along the bottom edge. It also features a “collar” in the middle for extra warmth. Inspired in part by the costuming in the BBC dramatization of Elizabeth Gaskell’s Cranford, the shawl is designed to be like Mrs. Gaskell’s...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This stranded colorwork hat is designed to coordinate with the Tiled In Cowl. It begins with a provisional cast on to create a hemmed brim and features a band of stranded colorwork.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
From the pattern: These lace socks might look fancy, but they’re deceptively simple. A two-round lace pattern creates what looks like columns of scullers rowing down the length of your foot. These are knit from the cuff down with a typical heel flap and turn, but the gusset is placed in an unusual location: the bottom of the heel. The result is ...
Knitting: Cowl
This stranded colorwork cowl features a repeating geometric pattern framed by hemmed edges. It begins with a provisional cast on and ends with grafting live stitches to the knit fabric. A photo tutorial is included in the pattern for the latter.
Knitting: Mittens
This stranded mitten pattern is the same on both sides, so the mittens are interchangeable. It features a gusseted thumb and a tapered top as well as an option for a picot cuff. It is knit in two contrasting colors.
Knitting: Ankle Sock
This is a straightforward baby sock pattern that uses a small amount of sock yarn and therefore is great for using up leftovers.
Knitting: Slippers
Please note that this pattern is available as a free download because it has been on my blog for years. It has not been tech edited or test knit, and it may not be representative of my more current pattern writing style.
