Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
The Amanita Muscaria mushroom is one of the most iconic fungi around. The cheery red cap with the white spots disguises the fact that the mushroom is actually quite poisonous. These happy mitts have all the geniality of the Amanita Muscaria mushroom with none of the danger. The simple stranded colorwork pattern makes an easy introduction to stra...

Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
Arcadia, before it was a city in Southern California, was a region in Ancient Greece. After the collapse of the Roman Empire, Arcadia became a concept, an idealized fantasy of perfect unspoiled rusticity. In the imaginations of western Europeans, Arcadia remained pristine, utopic, populated by happy shepherds and beautiful shepherdesses. The Ar...
Knitting: Pullover, Tee
Atalanta is a top down raglan shirt knit in a soft cotton blend, perfect for spring. Atalanta was a princess in Greek mythology, strong and capable and fast of foot. This comfortable and practical garment, loose fitting, but with flattering dart shaping, strikes me as a sort of modern take on something a Greek huntress might wear. The simple lac...

Knitting: Pullover
Backbone is a wardrobe staple, a sweater you can live in. I wanted a sweater that served the same function as a sweatshirt, but with an elegant look that could transition from casual to workwear without fuss. As a knitter, I wanted a point of interest to hold my attention while I was knitting, so I added a reverse horseshoe cable pattern down th...
Knitting: Scarf
Beetle Tracks is a simple lace and cable scarf, perfect for small amounts of soft yarn! Shorter than a typical scarf, it’s still long enough to wrap around once the neck and secure. The stitch pattern is simple to memorize and becomes very soothing after a time. If you’ve never done cables or lace, this is a gentle start in each. Quick gift knit...
Knitting: Cardigan, Coat / Jacket
I designed Betsy Ray while my daughter was deep into the Betsy-Tacy books by Maud Hart Lovelace. I was imagining the sort of coat I’d have wanted as a little girl, something soft and warm with just a little bit of frill and an old-fashioned sensibility. As a mother, I worked in the details that matter to me: long cuffs for an extra year of wear,...
Knitting: Beret, Tam, Beanie, Toque
Beverly is a soft, highly textured hat knit in a cozy merino-cashmere blend. A slip stitch contrast color creates little stained glass windows peeking out from between the architectural ribs that lead up the hat to the crown. Pick two contrasting colors for a hat that is both wearable and lovely. The hat pictured is shown deliberately unblocked...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque, Cloche Hat
I’m not always keen on bobbles, but there’s something about a bobble hat that does me in every time. I’ve been wanting a lace diamond and bobble hat for ages now, and Clara is the end product of a great deal of experimentation to get just the right result. From the twisted stitch brim to the star on the crown, Clara is simple yet fun to knit and...

Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Crosshatch is an easy-to-knit, easy-to-wear hat knit in a luscious fiber blend. Kenzie blooms beautifully when blocked while still retaining stitch definition and stretch. The all-over cable pattern is a little unusual to work, but easy to memorize and a fun challenge. As with my Horatio pattern, I was aiming for a unisex knit cap that appeals t...

Knitting: Scarf, Beret, Tam, Neck / Torso - Other
Edith started with a gorgeous skein of Metamorphosis from A Verb for Keeping Warm. I fell in love at first sight with the rustic texture and the beautiful biscuit color. It had to become something special, something that would show off the yarn to great effect. The resulting Faye Dunaway style beret and cravat will coordinate perfectly with a fi...
Knitting: Shrug / Bolero
In ballet, entrechat describes a jump in which the dancer leaps straight upward, crossing his or her legs several times in the air. The cables in Entrechat are reminiscent of this beautiful movement, crossing and uncrossing from arm to arm. Knit flat in one piece and then seamed, this is an article that looks far more complicated and difficult t...
Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
Please note: Unlike the majority of my shawl patterns, which are both written out and charted, Fine Hewn is charted only.
Knitting: Scarf, Cowl
Further is a simple to knit scarf or cowl that remains interesting due to a reversible pattern of chevrons worked on both sides. The pattern plays equally well with solid or variegated yarns, and because it’s reversible, you don’t have to worry about the wrong side showing. Buttons on the end of the scarf length version make for a versatile acce...

This pattern was originally created for the 4th shipment of A Verb for Keeping Warm’s Pro-Verbial Club 2010-11.

It can be knit in stockinette or garter stitch, by following th...
Knitting: Cardigan
Most of my childhood vacations involved car trips around my home state, exploring the varied and beautiful landscapes that California has to offer. Unlike the traditional cactus specked dustscapes we think of when we hear the word desert, the high desert is a rocky, high elevation terrain covered in tenacious scrub and twisted trees. At night it...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Every year I run into issues when it comes time to make hats for the males in my family. My desire is for attractive yarn that is fun to work with and a pattern that won’t melt my face from boredom. Their desire is for a plain dark hat with a folded brim. How to make us both happy? Horatio was my solution. It’s plain enough for the menfolk in my...
Knitting: Cowl
Ida is a fast, easy little colorwork cowl with that is big on style. Knit in two colors of Malabrigo Worsted and lined with Malabrigo Lace, the cowl knits up fast for a thick, soft, and very warm winter neck wrap. Because the cowl is so very thick and warm, it is intentionally oversized for a loose fit. The lace lining covers all colorwork float...
Knitting: Pullover
One of my family’s favorite places to go on the weekends is Tilden Park in Berkeley. Within Tilden, there is a small body of water called Jewel Lake. It’s a short hike to the lake, but there is such variety both on the way and at the lake itself that we never tire of it. The beautiful watery colors of the Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted reminded ...
Knitting: Scarf
Laetiporus is a genus of edible mushrooms that grow in brackets from living trees. The shelf like construction and bright yellow color make for a spectacular sight in the damp woods. The Laetiporus scarf mimics, with a wide and gentle garter ruffle, the broad ripples of Laetiporus mushrooms. Although the scarf pictured here is extremely long, th...
Knitting: Beret, Tam
Lichens and mosses are so miniscule and usual that they can easily be overlooked, but these tiny not-quite-plants are truly beautiful and fascinating. The Lichen Beret celebrates these Lilliputian wonders in larger form with a simple lace faggoting pattern that mimics some of the patterns of lichen fronds. Knit either in smooth Malabrigo Twist, ...
Knitting: Cowl
Variegated yarns frequently call my name, but I often have trouble knitting them up. Patterns that looked beautiful in theory can look messy in reality. Light and Shade is a simple cowl designed for use with those tough but beautiful Malabrigo variegateds. The slip stitch honeycomb pattern breaks up the colors and gives a look of dappled light r...

Knitting: Pullover
I am usually all about the negative ease shaped sweaters, but my sister wears oversized drapey sweaters and looks amazing in them. I wanted to make something in her style and colors, so I went with an oversized cowl necked tunic with some crazy bright stripes. This is probably the easiest sweater you’ll ever knit. It’s just a big rectangle, and ...
Knitting: Cowl, Fingerless Gloves
Myrna takes advantage of Bugga!’s soft hand to create a simple set that emphasizes the luxury of a cashmere blend. The smooth stockinette of the gloves makes a great showcase for a handpainted yarn.

Knitting: Pullover, Tee
Sunniva was designed to fill a wardrobe gap and close a gap. I love button down blouses and cardigans as wardrobe staples, but the unfortunate gaping that occurs at times can make them problematic. I wanted to make a sweater that would be modeled on a tee shirt - easy to pull on and wear - but with the stylistic look of a button down blouse; som...

Surtsey is a baby cardigan with a little simple colorwork to add a special touch! Knit from the top down in one piece for minimal finishing, Surtsey knits up fast to make a charming baby shower gift or homecoming sweater.

April’s lush new growth fills the woodland floors in a riot of bright young greens and fast growing leafy plants reaching for the light before the canopy fills in entirely. This shawl, composed of different leaf shapes and Faroese construction, is inspired by the verdant hues and herbage of spring. Both sizes result in a true shawl rather than a...

The Woodgrain Hat works for men and women alike.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
Spring brings a host of avian life to the woods, and the sounds and sights of birds fill the usually quiet groves and thickets. The Woodpigeon Mitts take a simple feathered lace pattern inspired by some of the feathered occupants of the forest, and create a dramatic and dashing fitted mitt that is light and warm. The elbow length mitts can easil...
