Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This stole was part of a book of designs inspired by Oregon locations. My “assignment” was farmer’s markets.
Knitting: Cowl
A simple eyelet pattern creates arrows traveling around a long, airy cowl -- about 70” in circumference (shown wrapped twice in some of these pictures.)
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap

Knitting: Cuffs
I designed these little bracelets for a friend who edited my novel. After trying many, many yarns, gauges and cable combinations, this simple, chunky pair turned out to be just right. The little whale you see on my wrist is a symbol from my book and reminds me of what Beverly has helped me achieve.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This pattern matches Beverly’s Bracelets. Each can be purchased separately or together.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
These fingerless mitts invite you to play with a small amount of special yarn, be it new yarn candy, a sentimental leftover, or perhaps your first handspun. The samples showcase a splash of color, like a jolt of sugar running up the side of each mitt. Making a colorful hand with a neutral stripe would be striking, too.

Knitting: Cowl
French Press is a lush cowl that features gorgeous yarn in a simple, irregular rib pattern. One ribbon, cord or other closure threads through a column of eyelets to scrunch and stylishly distort the cowl. It can be worn super scrunched, or loosely draped. Thanks to choice of closure, each knitter’s cowl will be a unique work of art.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
The most cost effective option for getting this pattern is to buy my book Beautiful Wreck as an e-book for $2.99. It includes the text pattern for this shawl (without pictures.) If you’d like to do that:
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
A spidery, Gothic lace shawl, adorned with bleeding hearts, and edged with a kicky ruffle. It’s named for my friend Lisa, who was one of the Gothic Cheerleaders, a performance group in Seattle.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Double Garter stitch is a classic stitch pattern that gives a 3-D pleated look. Worked sideways, the shawl is a big crescent. It incorporates Double Garter to give a rich texture to the sweeping edge.
Knitting: Cowl
A simple neck warmer, whose vertical lines and fanning structure remind me of grasses shushing in the breeze.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This fun hat was designed by my 5-year-old son Sebastian. (His design drawing is shown at left. He’s a natural!)
Knitting: Beret, Tam, Beanie, Toque
Slightly slouchy, deeply ribbed hat. Named after wheat-y beer.
Knitting: Cowl
Hydrangeas have always held a place in our hearts in my family. Here, in the summer of the Pacific Northwest, they bloom in great washes of the most vivid lavenders and pinks. Some an almost electric cornflower blue. The dark ones a glorious purple. To me, they embody the lazy heat of summer as it slowly slips into a hint of fall.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This shawl was previously called Midnight Sun and was sold as part of the Twisted Shawlette Club. Thank you to everyone at Twisted for inspiring me to make this. It’s a great LYS.
Knitting: Baby Blanket
This squishy Garter Stitch blanket is highly adaptable to almost any weight yarn and monochromatic or wild color combinations. It’s especially suited to self-striping yarn when used with a neutral main color. As I knit this blanket, its tilting lines and colors made me dream of pale frosting and a teetering chocolate cake.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Inspired by research for my novel Beautiful Wreck, a time travel Viking love story.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Gauge is important! The shawl is designed to be petite. If your gauge is too tight, you may end up with a beautiful kerchief.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
An airy shawl, named in honor of my German friend Beate who likes luftmaschen.
Knitting: Scarf
There used to be the sweetest little Cafe & Knittery in my neighborhood, and it was called Mabel’s. It’s turned to a coffee shop now, still wonderful but without the yarn and needles tucked in everywhere. This pattern is my tribute to old Mabel’s. A sample scarf that used to reside there was my jumping off point, but this s...

Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This soft shawlette seems as basic and essential as a morning cup of coffee or tea. The slip stitch pattern is simple, and the shape is a classic triangle,worked from the bottom up so rows get smaller as you go.

Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
A VERY long, assymetric shawl. It sits like a traditional triangular shawl on the shoulders, then a really long tail wraps around and can hang to below the knees. The whole thing stays put!
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves

Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
A simply constructed shawl that shifts through a series of five color changes and textures. From different angles, and in different light, color illusions are created throughout.
Knitting: Table Runner
A festive, silly table runner - super fun to knit in color changing yarns. It looked to me like a candy-land road or an elf-sized red carpet. Knit as long or short as you like, based on your target table.
Knitting: Bonnet
An adaptable bonnet for oddballs, special yarn, striping yarn, handspun, or scraps. You name it.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
simple, one-page pattern
Knitting: Afghan block
This squishy little square uses slip stitches to create a radiating design. When sewn together as a blanket, the slips create a diamond motif that stands out from the fabric and reminds me of the punched tin ceiling tiles in my grandmother’s kitchen.
