The E.L.F. (Elf Liberation Front) Cap (renamed “A Cap Full of Caps” for the book Knitting Wizardry) was inspired by the scene in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Scholastic, 2003) where Dobby wore a stack of hats that Hermione had handknitted to free the house-elves as a part of her S.P.E.W. organization.
Knitting: Pullover, Sleeveless Top, Vest
Vonnie is a curvy, sporty shell, designed with fuller figures in mind. Vonnie is knit up in Knit Picks Gloss DK, a gorgeously soft, season-spanning silk/wool blend − perfect on its own or over a t-shirt, and refined enough to wear under a blazer out to dinner.
An easy-to-memorize knit-purl pattern and worsted-weight yarn make this unisex Moebius a surprisingly quick knit. The pattern includes both charted and written-out instructions for both a cowl and a hood, each in three sizes: toddler, child, and adult.
A lovely openwork-topped cardigan featuring three-quarter sleeves edged with lace, a graceful tie closure, and gentle waist shaping. Originally published in February 2009 in The Smart Knitter newsletter, this completely revised pattern corrects the errors in the original pattern, and contains additional instructions, new charts, and new photos.
Knitting: Beret, Tam
Hanae is a great introduction to “true” knitted lace — that is, where every row contains pattern stitches — because it’s worked in the round. Note: this pattern contains only charts for the lace patterns. The pattern does NOT contain line-by-line narrative instructions for the lace patterns.
Juju au Lait is an updated version of the Juju pants which were published in the Spring 2008 issue of Knitty. It is worked in a new yarn, with a new cast-on and bind off, and a new cuff treatment. In addition, the pdf contains both written and charted instructions for the cable section.
Knitting: Pillow / Cushion
Cabled trim and fun stripes provide lots of interest to this quick-knit project. Fits easily over an airline pillow, or bring your own boudoir-sized pillow along with you-- you can fasten it to your carry-on bag or backpack using either a button and loop (as shown) or a drawstring (instructions provided).
