Patterns available as Ravelry Downloads

Knitting: Baby Blanket
Bands of feathery lace alternate with stockinette for this sweet, soft blanket, finished with a garter border. Knitted from the center out, it’s a meditative piece in which each stitch can be filled with love and baby-soothing vibes.
Knitting: Bonnet
Here, Jessica uses her chosen feather motif to frame little faces. The bonnet is knitted flat, and only joined to work the crown shaping. I-cord laces keep the bonnet snug on baby’s head.
Knitting: Dress
This little dress, worked from the bottom up with round-yoke shaping and gathers at the waist. All the more space wriggling and kicking around those little legs! The feather lace details at yoke and hem are super cute.
Knitting: Cardigan
Oh, cardis are so good for babes. It’s possible to get them on and off without too much of a struggle (mostly). This one has round-yoke shaping and the feather lace motif around the shoulders, a few little buttons, and a garter stitch to trim.
Knitting: Booties
These adorable little booties are knitted in the round from the cuff down, with instep worked flat, stitches picked up around along the sides of the instep and worked in the round to the bottom of the foot. I-cord ties keep the booties on even with all the discovery of limbs that move and kick!
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
We love Bard’s lace leaf motif, flowing out of a soothing garter stitch body and into twisted stitch columns, ending in a double moss stitch border. This blend of stitches play so nicely together in our silky Tern. Worked from the top down, this piece is sure to be a joy to knit.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Paulina builds a simple garter stitch body on this piece, starting at one tip, then transitions into a pretty goblet motif, and ends with a twisted rib. In our soft cotton worsted weight Whimbrel, Chalice provides a nice weight for warm summer nights.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Hanna gave Jocelyn a deep garter body and finished it with a boldly graphic blossom motif. We love this classic top-down shawl in our Cleaner Cotton™ sport weight Willet.

This fun tee features an all-over mesh motif, worked from the top down with short row shaping at the neck. We love the cropped, wide body on this piece.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This ample wrap, worked from right tip to wide left edge, combines a cushy garter stitch body with a pretty cable and eyelet panel. With a little bit of short row shaping, this piece has a good balance of interest and laid-back knitting.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
A garter stitch body is framed with a lattice border on all sides, and the accentuated curves and points give this piece a bit of drama. In our soft Chickadee Organic Heathers, Waxwing is a sophisticated wrap that provides a lot of interest in the making.
Knitting: Pullover
This traditional Gansey is worked up in our sweet, sport weight, cotton Willet. This piece includes a roomy underarm gusset, gorgeous knit-purl motifs in the body, yoke, and sleeves, and is sized from small adult to large adult. We envisioned it in a deep, nautical navy blue Starboard. What color will you pick?
Knitting: Pullover
Josee’s pullover showcases Whimbrel’s stitch definition with a front and center sideways cable. Picking up to work the yoke, body, and sleeves makes this seamless piece a fun and fascinating knit.
Knitting: Pullover
Like its adult counterpart, Aiden, this traditional Gansey pullover has a roomy underarm gusset and lots of fun knit-purl motifs in the body, yoke, and sleeves. We love it in soft, light cotton Willet.
Knitting: Pullover
The charm in Dawn’s tee lies in the simple and irresistible elements: allover garter stitch, short rows, and just a little bit of contrasted color at the shoulders, cuffs, and one-row trim at the neck. The short rows inform the shape of the deep v-neck on both front and back.
Knitting: Pullover
This slinky pullover is so attractive in its deep v-neck, pretty raglan detail, and raw edges at cuffs and hem. The fantastic drape that Sparrow offers gives this piece swing and elegance for effortless style.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This ample shawl is knit on the bias with a simple and stunning slipped-stitch motif. coupled with meditative garter stitch. It is large enough to wrap around several times, for chilly summer evenings.
Knitting: Tee
We love Allie’s tee, worked from the top down beginning with sideways-knit shoulder panels. The fun construction and pretty knit-purl details make this piece a fun knit.
Knitting: Pullover
We love Leila’s striped raglan, with its high, wide ballet neck and fitted yoke; its cool striping pattern; its raw-edge sleeve cuffs and hem. We went monochromatic on this piece, but Sparrow’s palette offers so much in the way of making it your own.
Knitting: Tee
Clean lines and a simple structure frame the eyelet ladders in Elizabeth’s tee. We love the back and sleeve details, and the subtle split hem in this piece.
Knitting: Sleeveless Top
The unfussy shape of this tank puts all of the focus on the elongated eyelet diamond motif throughout the front of the piece. The motif is loosely inspired by classic argyle patterns.
Knitting: Pullover
We all swooned when we saw this duster—it has such an impact and looks amazing on every height, whether the low back hem reaches the high calf, or goes all the way down to your shoes. The deep scoop neck and slim, bracelet length sleeves are so flattering, and Sparrow’s amazing drape is showcased in the front and back color block panels.
Knitting: Sleeveless Top
Jerusha combined an antique lace chevron motif with an open, alternating butterfly stitch to create the adventurous front panel of this tunic. With a wide boat neck, split hem, subtle A-line shaping, and the barest hint of color blocking, this tunic is destined to be a statement piece.
Knitting: Sleeveless Top
Jerusha combined an antique lace chevron motif with an open, alternating butterfly stitch to create the adventurous front panel of this tunic. With a wide boat neck, split hem, subtle A-line shaping, and the barest hint of color blocking, this tunic is destined to be a statement piece.

Three herringbone bands in loosely gradating colors are the feature on this otherwise simple tee, with a flattering scoop neck and set-in sleeves. Our gorgeous Kestrel palette provides so much potential for color play here!
Knitting: Pullover
Our silky, drape-y Tern sings in this open, lacy pullover. Garter stitch in the shoulders, hem, and cuffs frame the pretty leaf motif and eyelet ladders. A fun knit!
Knitting: Pullover
A classic shape with a sweet and clever increasing cable detail in the yoke. Crane, our slinky mohair merino, pairs so well with this piece, yielding an ultra-soft fabric with a subtle sheen.
Knitting: Cowl
This warm but weightless cowl was featured in our first installment of Quince Quarterly level 1, in Winter Twenty Nineteen. Irresistibly soft in our lace weight Piper, this cowl is covered in waves of cables and is written for two lengths for plenty of woolly warmth.
Knitting: Pullover
We love this cozy and light piece: The deep yoke, the roomy body, the softness of our little Piper, and the sweet color detail come together to create a gorgeous pullover that you’ll want to throw on first thing in the morning. The tee is knitted in stockinette, then turned inside out so that the purl side is visible when wearing.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
The density of Crane in this shawl gives it a weight that makes it so comforting to wear. Worked in our luxurious, worsted single-ply mohair-merino blend, and featuring classic shale and welt motifs, this is a quick and enjoyable knit.
Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
Available in both a scarf and a shawl size, this cozy accessory was included in our first installment Quince Quarterly level 2 in Winter Twenty Nineteen. Both versions feature buttery soft garter stitch edged with a pretty diamond leaf pattern—simple and meditative to work, and ridiculously cozy in Crane’s lush merino/mohair blend.
Knitting: Pullover
This simple round-yoke pullover is worked from the top down, with a bold tree motif that we adore. Knitted up in our workhorse worsted weight Lark, it’s also worked up fairly quickly.
Knitting: Pullover
This simple round-yoke pullover is worked from the top down, with a bold tree motif that we adore. The adult version has waist shaping and uses German short rows to lift the back neck slightly. Knitted up in our workhorse worsted weight Lark, it’s also worked up fairly quickly.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
The lattice cable-and-eyelet motif featured on this asymmetrical shawl is combined with a simple 2x2 rib, and the results are stunning. We love this piece in pale Jupiter, but can see it in creamy Cygnus, dramatic Mars, or steel-blue Mercury. Euclid strikes a gorgeous balance between softness and structure.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This piece captures so perfectly the layers of color that can be present in a piece of agate stone…and with our palette, the potential color combinations seem endless. With a simple garter and slip-stitch motif, worked on the bias with an i-cord edge, this wrap is a fun knit. And with openings near each end, it can be worn in many ways.
Knitting: Cowl
This quick cowl in Lark is done in no time! The pretty lace is easily memorized and grows nicely in and out of a ribbed frame. A versatile piece for wearing inside and outside year-round.
Knitting: Pullover
A cozy layer with pockets, perfect for transitional weather. Worked in the round from the bottom up at a relatively loose gauge, this modified drop shoulder piece is quickly finished. We love the simple broken rib details at the hem, sleeves, and toasty cowl.
Knitting: Cowl
Two-color brioche and a beautiful fern motif in our soft, slightly variegated Phoebe…a sweet combination. Cooperi offers and long enough loop to wrap twice around the neck, with brioche trapping air and warding off chilly temperatures.
Knitting: Scarf
We love this enormous wrap, combining meditative garter with a stunning cable panel that looks more complex than it really is. Available in two sizes, this piece worked up in Owl promises warmth and gorgeous style.
Knitting: Scarf
Osprey provides the perfect stitch definition for the deep, round, cables in this wide scarf. The sculptural link cables featured in Daphnis—named for one of the moons of Saturn—began as an exploration of the braided cable, and we loved the results.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
We love this little shawl, a classic top down triangle shawl with a lace border. Tern at this very loose gauge maximizes the already dramatic drape of our silk/wool blend, and makes it light and float-y.
Knitting: Cowl
Stripes and garter stitch look stunning in our single-ply chunky Puffin. This cowl is easy to tuck into a coat and keep the chill out during colder weather. Inspired by the sun setting over Lake Superior, we love this piece in Slate, Kittywake, and Damson—but what colors will you choose?
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This shawl is a fun challenge, featuring a wide cable panel using twisted stitches, several kinds of cables, eyelets, short rows…and the result is stunning, especially worked up in Phoebe. The garter body balances out the action happening in the border, making for a truly interesting knit.
Knitting: Scarf
Inspired by the architecture in Tokyo, Shinbashi is very textural in the slipped stitch motif and in the color blocking and striping. Worked up in Lark, Stefanie chose a muted palette for this classic scarf—but try it in a highly contrasted palette for some high drama!
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
We love the undulating twisted rib and eyelet motif in this scarf, made clean and well-defined by our 4-ply Lark. Shown here in Smoke, this piece offers sophistication and cozy warmth.
Knitting: Scarf
When we saw this scarf come in, we all swooned! Dianna’s colorwork is undeniably appealing, especially in our little fingering weight Finch. This ample tube scarf is knit in the round with a simple, yet stunning, motif. Capped at each end with a little fine ribbing, it’s a sweet companion for winter.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
In this gorgeous wrap, Isabell’s characteristically precise use of texture shines through with amazing results. We love the crisp, mitered rib border as much as the diamond pattern framed within. In cool Iceland, this piece is striking, but try it in our other heathers!
Knitting: Cowl
An easily memorized stitch pattern in cushy Osprey is the main element of this satisfying cowl—provisionally cast on, worked flat, joined with a three-needle bind off, this piece is made to fly off the needles, lickety-split.
Knitting: Pullover
Ah, a cozy raglan in quick-as-anything Puffin—what could be better to knit and wear as the temperature drops? And, Elizabeth has generously provided us with two sleeve options, long and ¾ length; and two body options, straight-waisted crop or a-line tunic. Make this sweater yours! Knitted seamlessly from the top down, and with the barest hint o...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
We love Paulina’s shawls. We have published many in the last several years (click her name above to see them all!). Here, she lays a simple diamond grid over squishy garter stitch, and polishes it off with an applied i-cord edge. Osprey is the perfect yarn for this ultra-comfy piece.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Dianna’s done the math…with our palette, there are over 43,000 possible 3-color combinations for this sweet hat. So…she has generously given us two in this pattern, and we’ve had fun coming up with even more! We adore Dianna’s colorwork style, and this piece in particular features a really cool Latvian braid, which was fun testing out for sure....
Knitting: Pullover
It’s really hard to go wrong with broken rib—it’s always such a pleasing texture. In Dale, Elizabeth has used it not only in the split hem, cuffs, and short funnel neck of this pullover, but also in the raglan shaping, which we think is a really cool detail.
Knitting: Mittens
These fluffy mittens are worked at a loose gauge for trapping warm air and keeping your hands toasty. The cable pattern on the top of the hand is simple and sweet, and smooth stockinette on the palm keeps functionality intact.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
Dawn designed these mitts to withstand the kind of chilly weather we get here from November to April (and sometimes beyond)…worked at a really tight gauge with strong lines of cabling, these will keep your hands warm, while still leaving your fingers functioning. Or, as is the case with our team during a Maine winter, they make a great layer ov...
Knitting: Cardigan
Slouchy’s body shape decreases toward the waist, giving the upper body a roomy feel without it being oversized overall. Pockets that open up at the sides, drop shoulder shaping, a slight drop toward the back hem using short rows, this piece has subtle details that keep the knitting interest going.
Knitting: Pullover
This a-line raglan features a deep v-neck, bracelet length sleeves, faux center seams on front and back, and deep pockets. Knitted from the bottom up in pieces and seamed, this adventurous piece is comfy yet structured.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Zigzag is knitted flat and seamed, showcasing a sweet little vine-y motif. No dpns here! Quick and unfussy.
Knitting: Other Top
This modern tunic features a long slit hem and a slightly oversized fit, making it a relaxed piece for wearing. Slinky Tern makes it a soothing knit, while the construction and subtle patterning make it fun.
Knitting: Tee
This boxy tee is simple and satisfying, with the lace traveling up most of the body. The strong lines in the lace motif create a subtle pinstripe look.
Knitting: Cardigan

A few rows of bobble stitches add visual interest and keep the knitting entertaining, while the generous shape of the finished piece makes it easy to style and wear.

Ily and Lostren are sisters. They’re close, but not quite twins. Each shawl is worked in garter-stitch stripes, edged with a border that ends in a picot bind off. Both shawls are wing-shaped - wider at one end than the other.

Psst! This week (5/26-5/29/2015) you can follow my blog series on how I worked on this design, and alternative stripe ideas!

Gweneth is a a little cardi worked from the bottom up in one piece to the underarms. It is then split for the fronts and back and a shaped scoop neck is worked. Stitches are picked up around the armholes, short row sleeve caps are worked and then the sleeves are continued down in the round. Simple lace panels add a pretty detail up each front.

Love and lemons – what more do you need for a perfect summer? Maybe a sweet shawl for summer evenings! As breezy to wear as it is to knit, this asymmetrical triangle shawl is slightly textured, with rows of eyelets and a playfully pointed picot trim. Knit in pretty Piper, it will be as warm and light as sunshine on your shoulders.

Named for one of the very first female mathematicians, Hypatia, the cardi, was born from my love of math and short rows. The circular yoke and slight A-line flair are shaped with short rows. The three-quarter length and lightly shaped sleeves make this the perfect piece for transitioning into fall.

Everly is an old Appalachian word for “always.” As I was designing and knitting this shawl, I kept thinking about how it was just the kind of project I love: a delicate lace edge, short rows to create the crescent shape, and an I-cord bind-off along the top edge. It’s something you’ll everly turn to when you want something light and airy to wea...

Aroura is a triangular shawl with a relatively shallow point and longer tails, worked from the top center down to the bottom edge. It begins with a garter spine and stockinette body, then adds stripes of a contrasting color in an intricate-looking but easy-to-knit texture pattern, finishing with a garter edge.

The design for this cowl came about through my fascination with the way that such a simple stitch pattern could automatically create a diagonal bias. Instead of each row sitting on top of the other, they veer off to the side, giving lines over which the eye is drawn. Adding bands of color seemed the natural choice to enhance the stitch pattern....

This cardigan is worked bottom up in one piece dividing at the armholes to work fronts and back separately. The sleeves are then formed by picking up sts around the armhole and working short rows to shape the caps.

This sweater is knit in the round from the top down using raglan shaping. The raglan increases are formed by making yarnovers which create decorative holes along the raglan seams. The sleeves have a gentle bell shape finished with a simple garter stitch at the cuff. The little patch pocket is an optional addition.

Knit and purl stitches make endless stitch patterns. Even a sinple cowl worked in the round looks complex when knit stitches alternate with purls. Mirrored decreases combined with yarn over increases create diagnonal lines and changing to a larger needle halfway up shapes the cowl slightly.
