Knitting: Throw
This pattern uses both Knitting and Crochet together. Ravelry’s classification system only allows me to mark it as one or the other, not as a hybrid.
Knitting: Pullover
A fitted long sweater, perfectly cozy for nippy fall days, or layered with a top underneath for deep winter. Casual enough to pair with jeans, or dressed up with a skirt and a pretty belt, Bow River will become a wardrobe staple.

Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Broadwyn is an asymmetrical triangle knit from the short end, with decreases on one side & a lace panel on the other to make a long scarf-like shawl. With i-cord all around (an i-cord cast on, then inline i-cord edging), it is a modern & dynamic addition to any wardrobe, no matter how you drape it. Throw it on, toss the end around, and e...
Crochet: Cowl
Simple crochet stitches, with an easily memorizable repeat make this cowl a quick and fun project. Work it in a drapey yarn for a sophisticated look.
Knitting: Tee
This tee is knit from the bottom up in two ribbed sections (front and back), then joined into the round and worked with waist shaping to the underarms. It is then split into front and back again to the shoulders, where it is joined with a 3-needle bind off on each shoulder. The front is shaped to create a drapey neckline.
Knitting: Ankle Sock, Socks - Other
The only formula you will ever need to make footie socks for the entire family. Great with clogs, chucks, or for sitting around the house.
Knitting: Pullover
Metamerism is the phenomenon when two colors look identical in one light but different in another. The two subtly close contrast colors in this sweater sometimes appear the same, and sometimes appear different, giving the colorwork a dynamic quality. The motif is a modern reimagining of a traditional Norwegian Star. The sleeves appear to be set-...
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
Named for a modern art movement founded by Kazimir Malevich, characterized by the study of limited geometric shapes, these mitts feature a textured colorwork pattern set off nicely with the skewed join of these mitts. They are knit as a rectangle, but joined with an offset so there is one corner of fabric spread up the fingers and one down the a...
Knitting: Cardigan
The multi-sized triangle motif of this pattern was inspired by both the traditional quilt pattern of Flying Geese and the abstract expressionist paintings of Thornton Willis, for whom this sweater is named. The triangular fold-back lapels echo the colorwork, and the facings of hem and sleeve both sport their own colorwork designs. All facings ar...
Knitting: Cowl
ATTENTION!* A Knit-Along (or KAL) will take place for this pattern beginning January 1, 2014. If you would like to participate, just purchase the pattern and grab your yarn. I will be putting together some kits to sell before the KAL begins, or this would be a great way to use up leftovers of sock/fingering weight yarns you already have. As the ...
Knitting: Cardigan
Named for the vibrant colorwork in the art of Lisa Congdon, this cardigan has clean lines that provide the perfect canvas for a riot of color on the front band, but would be equally striking knit in a bright color with a monochromatic band. The bands snap closed using snap tape. Buy commercial snap tape, or make your own by sewing snaps to color...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
DeStijl is named for a Dutch art movement characterized by visual compositions simplified with minimal forms and colors. This cozy wrap is worked using 2 strands of laceweight yarn held together, creating a cushy and drapey fabric. Intarsia rectangles of contrasting colors join and blend by using one strand each of the blending colors. What a gr...
Knitting: Pullover
This sweater is worked seamlessly in one piece from the collar down, but unlike the raglans you may be familiar with, this sweater features a flattering capped sleeve. Some techniques may be unfamiliar to you, but are clearly explained in the body of the pattern. You will use short row shaping over the first few inches to shape the front neck. T...
Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
Slightly angled, and fully reversible, this hybrid scarf/shoulder shawl is delightful to knit in garter stitch with a cable and lace border and short rows to shape the point.

Knitting: Throw, Bedspread, Baby Blanket
This cozy afghan is knit in modular pieces in garter stitch for a soft, cushy blanket. The modular design makes it very easy to adjust the size for a lap afghan or a baby blanket. You could even change the yarn weight and needle size and just knit it until it’s as big as you want it. It’s also a great way to use up all those scrap ya...
Knitting: Ankle Sock
This pattern is very versatile as the changes in size are a result of the change in gauge and needle size. You can also add stripes, make them taller, etc.

Yarn: Scraps of worsted weight yarn
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
These socks were designed to showcase the beautiful colors and subtle variegations of Trekking XXL sock yarn, but could be done beautifully in any subtly variegated yarn. The simple texture at cuff and toe gives a bit of interest for both the knitter and the wearer. The k2 p2 ribbing and the reinforced stitch on the heel flap give comfort and du...

“Adamas” in Greek means indomitable or untamable. This name was given to diamonds because of their ability to scratch anything, while not being scratched themselves.

Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This shawl commemorates one of my favorite things about summer—cherries! From the blossom that appear in the spring to the succulent red and almost purple fruits. This shawl would also be great knitting during the summer months, when it is too hot for a lot of wool in your lap and a project that travels well is much appreciated.

This shawl is worked with a unique blend of yarn overs and cables to create a highly textured forest scene. The cable branches flow organically from the tree trunks, meeting together in the middle of the shawl.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
The fabric created by working one strand of Linen/Rayon and one strand of Alpaca together is a tweedy, soft, and firm fabric. The linen could easily be substituted for a light sock weight wool, which would give the fabric more bounce.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Ribbing flows smoothly into twisted stitch cables, for a subtley shifting texture that creates a squishy and comfortable sock. The stitch motif eases out of the ribbing at the cuff and decreases back into the ribbing on the top of the foot, mimicking the peaks and valleys of the stitch pattern.

I designed this shawl to evoke the feeling of the beloved Wasatch and Rocky Mountain Ranges. This shawl echoes my deep and abiding love for the mountains that surround my high desert home. From the many foothills to the craggy peaks all throughout the year. From rocky ridges to sleeping snow-capped titans. This version is done with a lighter wei...

Named for the famous Egyptian Queen, Nefertiti. It is rumored that she ruled the Upper and Lower Kingdoms on her own after her husband’s death before her son Tutankhamun took the throne. With her husband she changed the polytheistic religion of Egypt to the worship of one god. This wrap evokes the sheer pleated gowns and serpentine vines f...

Cables in cashmere, what could be better! Envelop yourself in luxury by knitting this scarf or wrap in DK weight cashmere. The woven cable motif grows naturally out of 2x2 ribbing; simple, yet elegant.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Seraphim is a very simple, yet elegant design that makes one think of feathered wings - hence the name. If using fingering weight yarn, the solid stockinette upper portion gives a warmth not found in most lace shawls. It would be perfect to throw over a t-shirt in a drafty room, or could spice up a plain black dress for an evening out. The stock...
Knitting: Scarf
I wanted to make something that even beginning knitters could do, but something with some sort of lace. So I did a simple eyelet pattern that evokes winding streams and river deltas. The pattern takes advantage of the broad range of shades and tonality that Andie’s line of naturally dyed wools have, and the back (not pictured) is just as b...
Knitting: Scarf
A perfect scarf for spring and summer. Light and airy, but just warm enough for those breezy spring and summer nights. Works up quickly in a heavy fingering weight yarn. This pattern could easily be worked in a heavier yarn to make a cozier scarf.

This shawl was originally published in Summer 2006 issue of Interweave Knits, then re-released through mimknits.com.  It is also included in the Best of Interweave Knits anthology. Please note that the yardage in both of Interweave's printed versions is underestimated for the average knitter.

This shawl is named after the garden at Hidcote Manor in Gloucestershire, England. The garden was laid out in the 1920’s by Lawrence Johnston. The Hidcote Garden is characterized by its wild abundant plantings bounded within structured, geometric beds. Hidcote Garden is also famous for it’s lavender varieties.

Yarn Substitution: Since the original yarn is proving hard to find, I recommend Classic Elite Silky Alpaca Lace. It’s similar in drape and twist to the original yarn.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
This fingerless mitt pattern follows the lace principles illustrated in the swatches from the lace structure tutorial presented at MimKnits.com. The pattern begins with pyramids of eyelets, then illustrates how moving the decreases changes the flow of the fabric. When you alternate the lace motifs, the pattern evolves into leaf lace.

These socks are inspired by the socks found in the tomb of Eleanoro de Toledo, the wife of Cosimo I de’Medici, the Grand Duke of Tuscany. She was buried in 1562 after dying of the plague and her crimson silk socks are amazingly well preserved. (Images of the original socks can be seen here and here)

This top-down shawl plays with movement of stitches, having both subtle curving motion and clean decrease lines. The tessellating wave motif shifts and increases like ripples in a pond.

The motif of these socks is Arabic calligraphy of the word "baraka", meaning "blessing". The chart was originally published in A History of Handknitting, and was found on a pillow entombed in 1275.
