Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
A simple fingerless mitt with a riotous little ruffle.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
These mitts are super warm and cozy. No, they aren’t sleek. Yes, they are the warmest fingerless mitts I have bar none. The pattern gives instructions for knitting a flat fabric with special eye to details for the selvedges and seam. I prefer to knit heavy yarns on straight needles and I thought it would be cool to offer a pattern for thos...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Spiraling Leaves Wrap is a chunky weight, cozy, textured lace wrap. It is knit back and forth as a bias triangle, then joined in front with an overlapping seam. Reasonably easy to knit, this is a fun and fairly quick project and is appropriate for first-time lace knitters.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
Cables and Chevrons travel side by side, like two romantic poets whose lives ran parallel, each enhancing the other, paths crossing like the cables that twist around the thumb detail. When I went to write the pattern, I realized that the easiest way to set it down was in two variations of a 4 round repeat which repeat at different intervals. Thi...
Knitting: Cuffs
Panels of seed stitch and meandering leaves traced with twisted-stitch ribs and dotted with beads remind one of a dewy cottage garden shaded by a venerable apple tree, enclosed by a wooden fence. A cat smiles from the porch railing.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
These are the sister socks to my Cloudland fingerless gloves. The beautiful faux cables spiral in opposite directions. Spiraling patterned socks require a symmetrical heel and I have included a round heel which is placed as an “afterthought” heel (though it’s definitely planned for). You could work an hourglass heel in its plac...
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
Flip Side fingerless gloves are totally reversible! Two gloves in one. Knit it on the “dot side” and flip it to the “nubbin side”. If you finish carefully and hide your tails well, you can flip ‘em any time you like. These are really fun to knit, very textural, and only take about 160 yds of sport weight yarn for th...
Knitting: Legwarmers
Sister pattern to Heart of the Lotus armwarmers, this pattern is also written for two weights of yarn, sport and fingering. These are form fitting legwarmers and they still scrunch really well, but if you want them loose, just knit them in the next size up. I think it would be really cool to knit them loose and airy on larger needles…say U...
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
Tres elegant spiraling lace faux cables that fit like a second skin. This pair took only one 200 yd skein of Malabrigo Finito (color: Paloma).
Knitting: Cuffs
The Lotus is a symbol of chaitanya (sanskrit for consciousness). One’s awareness rises from its mundane beginnings in the mud and grows heavenward through the water, rising into the light first as a bud and then as a spendiferous flower opening to the sun. It has long been used as the symbol of the chakras (wheels), the crown chakra being ...
Knitting: Cowl
I love this little pullover moebius cowl! It’s really fun to knit…pretty easy really, though not totally rank newbie. I knit this one in my worsted weight 2 ply handspun. The fiber? Three Waters Farm BFL in Night Carnival with a smattering of Roses and Chocolate. The cowl is reversible and one edge has a rib, the other a ruffle. So i...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
This is a sock version of my Fern Spiral Fingerless Gloves. It has an hourglass heel which allows the spiraling pattern to continue unfettered. It’s very fun to knit and I’m on my third pair. I used Ashland Bay La Grande (many indie dyers use this) 100% superwash merino dyed with eucalyptus leaves and madder root. Suggested subs are ...
Knitting: Cape
I knit the original capelet in my ooak handspun, but you can substitute any bulky yarn. Here’s what I used: Written for 5 different handspun yarns, but would look lovely in just one or two. All yarns are bulky singles. I chose smooth thick and thin yarns for A and B, a fleecy corespun for C, a multicolor autowrapped single for D and a simi...
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
These are so easy and fun to knit, as easy as lace gets, really. Knit it with or without the nups (without nups is even easier). The stitch pattern spirals in opposite directions on each hand. I’ve listed this as a pattern for sport weight yarn but it looks great in anything from sport down to fingering. Actually, I’d love to see it ...

Knitting: Scarf
Got Handspun Art Yarn? Wondering what to do with it? Here’s a simple pattern that looks awesome in all sorts of textured and interesting yarns. It’s written for bulky yarn and US 15 needles, but there are so many variables. Takes very little yardage. Two separate scarflets are joined while knitting second scarflet. Very easy. Make it...
Knitting: Coat / Jacket
This beautiful textured “faux circle” jacket is designed to look like a circle jacket, but fit in a more flattering way, with slimming vertical stripes. Because it has both petite and regular sizes, you can get the look of a circle jacket without the crazy length (as we all know, it’s challenging to size a circle jacket). The b...
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
Ever wanted a pair of fingerless mitts that would keep you warm but still allow you to operate your favorite touch screen device? I got sick of taking off my gloves to answer my phone, so I designed these. You can fold the fabric back for more finger wiggle room when it’s not that cold, then flip it over your fingers in a snap. When the ph...

Knitting: Cuffs
Totally fun cuffs are quick to knit, add a touch of removeable ruffle to any jacket or sweater. Sierra comes in pale denim blue and this looks so great with a vintage denim jean jacket.

Knitting: Cuffs
This pattern comes with instructions for a heavy worsted weight version (top photo) and a sportweight version. The third photo from top shows an active twist flower embellishment. I just love these cuffs and have made several pairs. I even layer them. They never get in the way when I type, spin or knit and because they are non restrictive, they ...
Knitting: Scarf
I originally designed the scarf for my classes as a project for participants’ handspun color samples. It’s an assembled piece, great way to use up small amounts of yarns…stash reduction…one-offs, etc. I spun the yarn for this scarf from 6 different colorways of handpainted Blue Faced Leicester rovings, then plied the colo...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap

Knitting: Beret, Tam
Start from a “core 4” of rectangles and work in 4 successive rings to make this seamless hat. Skill level, experienced. I wouldn’t suggest it as your first entrelac project. However, it’s simple enough for those who have worked in entrelac before. I have included several drawings to guide you. Although I originally change...
Knitting: Containers
I came up with this little bowl as an exercise for knitting entrelacs in the round for my workshops. It’s a great way to knit up handspun color samples. Finished bowl as shown was knit with DK weight two ply handspun on US 3/3.75mm needles. It’s knit very densely so that the bowl stands up in it’s full three dimensional glory. ...
