Knitting: Neck / Torso - Other
Warm yourself to the core with this cabled rib warmer. The ribbing at the edge pulls it in tight so you don’t have to worry about pulling it up while you’re stretching and the diamond cable design gives it that extra pizzazz to get you ready for your workout. The name “Silk Knot” comes from the knot put in fabrics when you are first learning ae...
Knitting: Legwarmers
My love for knitting combined with my love for the circus arts has led to this – the first in a series of circus inspired patterns. The lyra, or aerial hoop, is a steel ring in which the aerialist moves above the crowds, performing amazing feats of strength and flexibility. These legwarmers were inspired by the types of garments I see aerialist...

This is a wonderful pattern with so much room for variation. It is initially knit with a bulky yarn, but can be adjusted to fit any weight.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves, Costume
Chain maille without the sag and chill of metal against skin. These mitts are designed to fit comfortably throughout the day. The ribbing holds the gauntlet firmly in place, shaping from the thumb to the forearm offer a slim fit, and a tight gauge prevent stretching.
Knitting: Throw
I am a Tetris fanatic. As a child, my father and I would compete to see who could get the highest score, always working hard at it when the other wasn’t looking. Any new game that came out, I had to have. Cubic tetris, dual player tetris, archaeology tetris. This pattern represents that addiction. It is knit simply through modules that are conn...

This is a fun and easy pattern for a knitted cowl. The piece is knit on the bias, with a simple lace pattern adding pizazz to the item by accentuating the diagonal. It sits very comfortably around the neck and dresses up your winter wardrobe.

Knitting: Hats - Other
This is a fantastic little pattern to bring out the sneaky witch in you. Worked in one piece, in the round, this is a great pattern for beginning knitters who wish to try their hand at felting. The hat stands about 7 inches tall with a wide brim. Add embellishments such as ribbon, tulle, silk flowers to give it that personal touch, or leave it ...
Knitting: Hats - Other
I love top hats, especially in miniature. The shape and decoration in the hats can describe a persons character better than words. For years, I searched for the perfect tiny top hat for myself, but could not find anything in the right size, shape, color, or character I wanted. Finally, I decided to make one for myself. The colors and decoration...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This is a quick Halloween costume I whipped up. It was inspired by my neighbor, who couldn’t think of what to do for her son’s “Zombies Ate My Brains” costume. I used flesh-colored yarn for the hat, but feel free to change the colors!
Knitting: Snood, Beret, Tam
This is a good pattern for learning the entrelac technique. There is a heavy ribbed hem for warmth, using the provisional cast on for stretch.
Knitting: Cuffs
This is an easy, seamless pattern with a number of variations. While the finished garment measures about 6 inches from the knuckled to the mid-forearm, it can easily be shorter or much longer. Eyelets are created in the design and a length of ribbon, leather, or a knitted I-cord lace through the eyelets to help the gauntlets fit snugly. While I...
Knitting: Beret, Tam
This is an adorable hat made of cotton, perfect for the spring and fall. The shape of the hat suggests a pumpkin or other type of squash. I have made the hat in other colors to portray tomato, squash, etc. There are plenty of ways your imagination can turn this hat into something distinctly you!
