Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
I have been intrigued by the look of channeled eyelets. This little shawlette is easy to knit and uses just one skein (approx. 430 yards) of sock yarn.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
One row of knitting, many times repeated, equals a lovely stole! This light and airy wrap is delightful to make with Kidsilk Haze, that never disappoints.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This leafy, lacy stole is worked in two pieces, each cast on from the ends. These pieces are then joined after one middle section.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
A sock for the family. These socks have a diamond pattern that is similar to Argyle, without quite as much work!
Knitting: Cardigan
This pattern from Nonsuch Knits is an A-line sweater, knit from the bottom up in mostly stockinette stitch. A lace bodice is then knit with increases of cap sleeves. There is minimal finishing - joining at the shoulders and side seams. No picking up of stitches required!
Knitting: Cowl, Mittens, Beanie, Toque
Cowl, hat, mittens - all you will need for the winter’s cold north winds. All three items use the same textural stitch.
Knitting: Throw
This is a lovely, warm throw using bulky yarn and large needles. The slip-stitch pattern is easy to remember and execute since all the stitches are knit! Add on a fun, bold border with mitered corners. Make a cup of tea and enjoy!
Knitting: Ankle Sock
This pattern was designed for Twisted Yarns in Spring, Texas for their Sock Club as the August 2010 sock. I wanted to design cables to represent the way the lives of our friends and families criss-cross and the choices we make. As I was knitting, the poem The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost popped into my head, so I added it at the end of the in...
Knitting: Throw, Baby Blanket
This pattern is for an easy, reversible afghan or lap throw. It can be knit in any worsted weight yarn. (Or try “baby” yarn for a baby blanket.)
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This is a free pattern for a hat/cap/beanie/toque with rapid decreases in the crown for a contemporary look. I have made this hat many, many times as donations to The Ships Project. Read about all of this on my blog,
Knitting: Baby Blanket
Every baby needs a warm blanket and every parent needs the blanket to be machine-washable. Ta-da! This yarn is great to work with, and though it is wool it is very light-weight and lofty.
Knitting: Vest
Eighteen is a traditional Fair Isle vest, knit in the round with steeks at the neck and armholes. The only seams are at the shoulders!
Knitting: Convertible Gloves
These mittens from Nonsuch Knits are perfect for those times when you want to use your fingers but not expose your whole hand to the freezing temperatures. The glove is knit first, and then stitches are picked up from a purl ridge to complete the “flip-top”. Directions are included for a solid-color mitten as well as one with a simple Fair Isle...
Knitting: Scarf
Sometimes the simpler the better. This handsome scarf is knit in a very basic stitch with DK weight yarn, yet produces a pattern with both vertical and horizontal interest - like the “Bark” of a tree.
Knitting: Scarf
Two patterns for the price of one! Both scarves are fun, quick knits, creating a circular scarf that can be worn long with one wrap, or wrapped twice around the neck, or pulled up to form a hood. The first scarf uses 4 skeins of Misty Alpaca Chunky and US 11 needles. The second scarf offered is knit on US 17 needles using only 2 skeins of Brown...
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
Fans of the Twilight Saga will recognize these fingerless gloves as very similar to those worn by stylish Alice. (And note that Brown Sheep has a Lanaloft Handpaint Worsted in color Twilight.)Whether or not you are a fan of this series, these gloves are sure to be a favorite as they are easy to knit and comfortable to wear.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This hat from Nonsuch Knits is perfect for changeable weather conditions. The very wide ribbing can be worn turned up, or pulled down to cover the ears in the most blustery weather. The hat has defined vertical decreases in the crown, and optional tassel directions.
Knitting: Coffee / Tea Pot
Nothing is worse (well, maybe some things are) than cold coffee in the morning. Use this cabled “scarf” to wrap around your French Press. The cable pattern is repeated 4 times with attached i-cord to hold it in its place. A one evening project…pair it with a French Press for a great gift!
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Triangular shawl knit from the top down. The main part is comprised of the sun shining over two leaf shapes. The leafy edging is knit to the shawl body. The Woodlands may be knit in either laceweight or fingering weight/sport yarn
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This rectangular stole from Nonsuch Knits is knit with 7 skeins of a yarn that as lovely to work with as it is to wear. The lace edgings are knit on the ends after removing a provisional cast-on.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
This simple sock fits beautifully, without sock sag, as the pattern is a rib variation. To add to the fun, a star toe has been used. This keeps the “twist” going.
