Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
I love the fit of ribbed socks but find them boring to knit. This nifty little rib stitch is not only engaging to knit, but can be varied easily to give more than one design. Knit both of the variations given here, or rearrange the two “blocks” of the design to come up with your own version! Two different toe options are included as well - shape...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This fun hat reminds me of the colorful candies that fill the jars at old-fashioned candy stores. Work it in many colors or choose just two. Each stripe takes only a few yards from your scrap yarn bag and is knit right in as you work - a fun technique!

Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
These attention grabbing socks feature stars that actually seem to be in motion. You’ll move through your day with a little added energy wearing these swirling stars on your feet!
Knitting: Legwarmers
No reason to hide your shapely legs in the chilly weather. These legwarmers are shaped from ankle to calf to hug without bagginess. Twisted stitch diamonds spark up the ribbed design and make it an engaging knit.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Fun to knit and fun to wear! This clever hat is a hit with the little ones! Traveling cables form the jaunty frog, and stretchy ribs makes sure the hat stays put through all variations of leap-frog. In sizes to fit your favorite herpetologist as well!
Knitting: Mittens
A great first intarsia project with just one join per row. The hands of these mittens are knit flat - the seam is part of the patchwork design! The thumbs are knit seamlessly in the round. And no need to limit yourself to just 2 colors (see the photo examples of multi-color mittens made with small amounts of leftover stash). Make some for everyo...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
It’s a fact of life in rural areas that there are certain months of the year you don’t go into the woods without your fluorescent orange hat. Why not knit your family something special for that time of year? This stretchy hat knits up quickly and is fun to wear in any color - any time!
Knitting: Beret, Tam
This perky hat will put a smile on your face! The highly textured tam is formed of waves that decrease in amplitude before finishing up in a lovely star shape at the crown. It looks great with the coordinating cowl (pattern sold separately).
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Perfect to knit for the young ones and in a size range to fit the young at heart as well! This cheerful hat is easy to knit using alternating color stripes with simple slip stitches forming the design, always working with only one color at a time. The hat is worked circularly from the brim up. The heart loop topper is sewn on separately. It is k...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Take your pick of design with these fun sister socks. “Flora” has cheerful blossoms, and “Stella” sports pointy stars. Both are easy to knit using alternating color stripes with simple slip stitches forming the design, always working with only one color at a time. They are worked from the cuff down. You’ll want to knit yourself both pairs - or m...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This pretty little shawl features a pop of accent color separating the garter stitch body from the border. Little bow ties form the border into a scalloped edge with no tricky knitting required! If you do not have a few yards of accent color in your stash, this shawl looks just as sweet with accents worked in the main color; just remember to hol...
Knitting: Cowl
Loop some light and bouncy waves around your neck! Wear as a single loop scarf, or give it a twist and flip it around your neck to have a cozy double layer cowl. Because it looks so great with the coordinating hat (see it in the last 2 photos - pattern sold separately), I am offering 50% off the pattern when purchased at the same time as the “We...
Knitting: Ankle Sock
What better place to highlight your love of hand-knit socks than on your socks! The perfect gift for that knitter who always has a pair of socks on her needles.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Nothing keeps your feet warm on a camping trip like heavy wool socks! This design adds interest to an often utilitarian heavy weight sock by incorporating a garter panel with traveling cable on the outside of each ribbed leg. Briggs and Little Tuffy is the perfect yarn for socks that will see heavy duty - it wears like iron! Please note that if ...
Knitting: Vest
This vest was designed to be a special birthday gift for my dad - “Bumpa” to his grandchildren. Simple texture patterns combine to give interest to both the design and the knitting. Handy, knit-in pockets are a must for my dad - but are optional for your special man. This vest also looks quite handsome on women!
Knitting: Earwarmers
This minimalistic headband has just enough coverage to keep your ears warm on a windy day without mussing up all your hair. A button in the back makes it easy to get on and off too. Super quick to knit in a single evening. Sample shown (in size small) used only a third of a skein of Peruvia Quick. Earbuds makes a great last-minute gift for all y...
Knitting: Vest
This vest is designed to be a flattering wardrobe staple. Subtle waist shaping makes a large impact due to its
Knitting: Scarf
This scarf was inspired by the tidal cove across from my home. Three-dimensional folds give it an almost organic form, while also representing the rhythmic movement of the sea as the tide comes and goes. It is an engaging and deceptively easy knit, and the basic folding technique can be endlessly varied. In colorful dk cotton you can wear this a...
Knitting: Earflap Hat
Have fun knitting these quick little triangles with no seaming! Triangular earflaps will keep little ears warm, and stretchy garter stitch construction will let baby wear your handiwork as she continues to grow. A winning baby gift!
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This hat was originally designed for a long distance hiker with the trail name “Castle” (you can see her off the trail and wearing her hat in a couple of the photos), but it is a hat that any adult or child who loves castles will be thrilled to wear. A relatively quick knit that takes only a skein of yarn. Great gift idea!
Knitting: Beanie, Toque, Cloche Hat
Who says you can’t have a little vintage glamour on a frosty day? This hat has a lacy side fan knit right into the ribbing. Add a special button and pair with my Sea Smoke Scarf (pattern sold separately on Ravelry) to face winter with style.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This hat will put even the smallest amounts of your stash yarn to good use. The triangles are quick and fun to knit and there are no seams to sew!
Knitting: Cardigan
The texture of this pattern reminds me of the pebbly bottom of a cold creek in the mountains. If you love the look of texture patterns like bramble stitch, but hate working all those increases and decreases, then this pattern is for you! The texture comes from the different weight yarns used in a
Knitting: Scarf
This is an interesting yet quick knit. Pair with my Sea Smoke Hat to put a little glamour in your winter wardrobe!
Knitting: Beanie, Toque, Hats - Other
This is a great pattern to use in a beginning knitting class. The hat can be done with one skein of yarn. The design gives lots of practice with garter stitch before moving on to picking up stitches, learning to purl (for stockinette stitch), decreasing, and sewing a seam. New knitters love working with the colorful Kureyon yarn, but any aran we...
