Knitting: Brimmed Hat
Inspired by all the fantastic hats of the 1930s-1940s, this tilt hat uses short row shaping and blocking to get its distinct vintage lines.
Knitting: Money Purse
This pattern is designed to introduce you to several different techniques for Double Knitting. You may use any worsted weight yarn or similar size for this.
Knitting: Hats - Other
There is hardly a more fabulous accessory than a vintage style hat. Nothing transforms an outfit like a great hat can. This pillbox hat is not full size, so it’s more a type of cocktail hat that sits tilted on the head.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This was designed as a gift for my husband who tends towards simple knits but still wants something interesting. While most of this hat is worked in a simple rib pattern, subtle cables spring forth twisting into the top decreases adding interest. The result, an engaging knit for both the wearer and knitter! As a very stretchy hat, it fits most ...
Knitting: Billed Hat
This pattern now has both the original fitted version and the new slouchy version!
Knitting: Billed Hat
This hat was inspired by and made for my good friend Mel, a bit of cuteness and a bit of funky sass all in one.
Knitting: Beret, Tam
This pattern now includes a Mens size as well! Makes a great dread tam too!
Knitting: Cardigan
The Luana babydoll-style swing cardigan takes advantage of HipKnits coordinating colors to create matching solid yoke and hems.
Knitting: Pixie Hat
Off-Kilter v.1 is worked flat on a bias and then seamed allowing the diagonal ribbing to keep all its normal ‘elastic’ properties. This yarn’s long striping color repeats create a cool alternating diagonal effect as well. After popular request, this hat is also offered in a child size which in my humble opinion I think would look freaking adora...
Knitting: Hanging Ornament
Completely seamless stocking knit on 2 needles using Double Knit technique.
Knitting: Toy Food
This  pie version is a lattice top, with slip stitch cables and duplicate stitch worked on the top and mini-bobbles for the filling.
Knitting: Cloche Hat
Evoke the style of the 1920’s with this felted cloche hat. Knit in the round, this piece uses short row shaping to form an asymmetrical brim. A clever variation of a double knit technique produces the contrasting welted band.
Knitting: Sleeveless Top
This bra-friendly tank top features wide straps and optional bra-stay snaps to keep those undergarment straps from peaking through. The optional short row bust darts provide a smoother fit. Deceptively simple diagonal ribbing for the empire waist add shape and detail while keeping the top portion solid enough that an undershirt is not required ...
Knitting: Scarf
Strong diagonal lines of slanting decreases and yarn overs create a striking pattern that neither gets lost in the beautiful complexity of Noro’s Silk Garden nor competes with it. Drooping bell shapes appear to hang from diagonal "stems" in varying shades much like the Grape Hyacinth.
Knitting: Purse / Handbag
Structured cabled purse featuring an asymmetrical Celtic cable and a double knit base that creates a built in “pocket” for a strip of plastic mesh canvas to be inserted for reinforcement.
Knitting: Collar
Add a little lace flare to almost any outfit. Wear it over a high neck shirt or a more dramatic neckline. The upper lace is my variation of an 1890’s rosebud pattern. The bottom edging calls to mind the rose’s thorns and the pattern looks of little stems and leaves. Two delicate button loops worked in the bind-off row and ribbon woven through t...
Knitting: Cuffs
His and Her skull Fair Isle pulse warmers. Help keep those pulse points warm and try out some simple fair isle without having to simultaneously work any other techniques. Guy and girl versions of this pattern can easily be made with just a little duplicate stitch embellishment. Also included is how to cast on in 2x2 rib to better match the bind...
Knitting: Scarf
Winding cables framed by eyelet "ladders" make up this simple but elegant scarf.
