“There May Be Beads” lets you play with yarn in all sorts of ways!
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Bead Isle is a delightful pattern, making use of beads in the same way that you’d create Fair Isle motifs. You can use either DK weight (5.5 stitches per inch) or worsted-weight (5 stitches per inch) yarn, and you can make it slouchy or not. Use either a solid or a variegated yarn, but be sure that the size 5 beads are highly contrasting.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Do you have gradient kits sitting in your stash, or have you drooled over them at your local yarn shop? If so, here’s the perfect pattern for using them.

Knitting: Beanie, Toque
If you’ve never cabled before, this is the perfect starting pattern. You’ll learn how to cable to the right and to the left. There is purling in the pattern, but not during the cabling part. (One less thing to worry about for the first try.) The tutorial explains all. You can do this!
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
If you are the kind of person who can’t get enough stripes, this pattern will make you happy. The entire shawl has more and more stripes!

This pretty scarf is written for both Sport/DK and fingering weights of yarn. (More repeats are given for the fingering weight, and you’ll want roughly 400 yards of each yarn instead of 300.)
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This hat is perfect for the person in your life who thinks that going “wild” means buying a dark-green shirt instead of a blue shirt. Choose two colors of yarn that are just a wee different so that the Fair Isle doesn’t show too much. Trust me. This will be a hit.

This scarf is the perfect way to learn how to knit. It starts slowly and easily, with the same stitch over and over, and then toward the end gives you a little kick of new skills. Or if you’re a more experienced knitter, it is the perfect movie project.

Entrelac is a knitting technique that gives you a fabric which looks woven, but actually isn’t! It is easy and fun to learn. And it is the very easiest in the round. So if you’ve never tried it, this pretty cowl is a great place to start!

Wrought-iron railings have always fascinated me. The people who bend metal into a myriad of gorgeous shapes are true artists. This cowl is inspired by their work.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
I grew up and still live near Tussey Mountain. (I admit that it’s barely a hill if you live in the west.) And because of that, no matter where I travel, I find that mountains are in me. Little or big, mountains always bring both a sense of adventure and a source of comfort.

Late autumn: You suddenly feel like taking a Sunday morning walk before breakfast.
Knitting: Scarf
This pattern is a tutorial on double knitting. Knitting across one row, you’ll create what are actually two pieces of stockinette fabric, with their purl sides against each other. You’re using one color on one side, and the other on the other side. But you’re knitting them at the same time instead of separately.
Knitting: Mittens
Most mittens are knit from the cuff up. But knitting from the top down has several advantages: You can try on the mittens for sizing as you go, and you can avoid having to sew the end together. You can use any weight of yarn for this pattern!

Jordi is a ponchette or shawl made from 4 different sizes of seven total wedges. They are knitted individually, then joined with a decorative 3-needle bind-off.
Knitting: Scarf, Cowl, Shawl / Wrap
This möbius cowl reminds me of water running through a water wheel. Garter-stitch bands look as if they slow down the water-like flow of the cables between them. The play of garter and cables creates an undulating edge.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This is the easiest shawl possible! It has 3 variations--a diagonal triangle; one for a wide, shallow triangle, and one for a narrow v-shape using short rows. All of these shapes are pictured in the photos here, so don’t be confused if the shawls don’t look quite like each other!
