Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Bold top-down sportweight socks boast a clingy lace rib pattern adorned with bobbles on the leg for an unusual spiky texture. The ribbing conceals calf shaping for a comfortable, non-binding fit, and the unconventional toe shaping flows smoothly out of the pattern on the instep.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
A simple repeating lace motif adorns this top-down triangular shawl, designed to showcase a special laceweight yarn. The hypotenuse is finished with narrow picots and the bottom is adorned with a wider, knitted-on scalloped edging to add interest to the standard construction. Choose a laceweight wool or wool blend with a crisp hand and a subtle ...
Knitting: Mittens
Lightweight mittens with bold geometric motifs in a checkerboard arrangement, to help you chase away the last of the winter chill. Choose a sticky wool or wool blend yarn that blooms slightly with washing for best results.
Knitting: Gloves
These cozy gloves feature a quick hit of stranded colourwork at the cuff, followed by plain stockinette for relatively quick and easy knitting. The colourwork pattern is inspired by the snowball quilt block, which is assembled from an octagon and four quarter-square triangles; when a collection of snowball blocks are arranged into a grid, they l...
Knitting: Convertible Gloves
These colourful mittens have tips that fold back to reveal half-fingers, which makes them conveniently compatible with cell phones, iPods, and other devices with touchpads. When they are worn in mitten formation, the tops are held firmly in place by ribbed flaps. Choose a springy superwash wool yarn for mittens that are hard- wearing, warm, and ...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Beatrice is a wide lace stole designed to showcase a large stylized floral motif. The edging is knitted at the same time as the body of the shawl, neatly enclosing the central pattern with a zigzagging border. Choose a fine mohair yarn with a halo to make a shawl that’s warm, lightweight, and deliciously soft.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
These top-down socks have some stocking flair, featuring a lace cuff with built-in calf shaping. A related lace pattern continues down the leg, instep, and optionally all the way to the tip of the toe. The two patterns have delayed decreases in common: the yarn overs are set several stitches away from their corresponding decreases, which shapes ...
Knitting: Mittens
These intricately-patterned mittens are a riff on an old Norwegian rose motif. The cuff edge is finished with a wide turned hem, and the back of the hand showcases three interconnected stars. The palm side has a simpler colorwork pattern, and the thumb gusset features a smaller version of the star.
Knitting: Gloves
This is a pair of fine-gauge, elaborate stranded colorwork gloves inspired by the bright tile ceiling in the atrium of the Guardian Building in Detroit. The knitted version is simplified substantially from its namesake, but shares its bright color scheme and its bold diamonds-inside-diamonds pattern.
Knitting: Gloves
These dainty, old-fashioned gloves feature an elaborate lace edge that’s worked sideways in garter stitch. The strip of knitting is grafted into a ring to form the cuff, and the remainder of the glove is worked in the round. The soft alpaca lace yarn held double makes a thin but warm fabric, perfect for dress gloves.
Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
This shawl and scarf are put together from traditional Shetland lace patterns. The diamond area in the centre, identified as “Mrs. Montague’s pattern” by Sharon Miller in her book Heirloom Knitting, is a field of bead motifs; the border sections are beads interspersed with Madeira ferns. When the stole is worn, the ferns are up...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Victoria is a solid triangular scarf that gradually becomes lacier toward its edges. Knitting at a slightly tighter gauge than fingering-weight yarn is usually knitted for shawls emphasizes the lines formed by the decreases. They create sinuous curves as the lace pattern becomes denser.
Knitting: Scarf
This delicate lace stole uses construction techniques and pattern elements borrowed from Russian lace shawls. The stole begins with a strip of edging, from which stitches are picked up; it ends with another strip of edging attached to the stole as it is worked. The corners are mitered so that they lie beautifully flat.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Fledgling is a top-down triangular shawl designed to showcase a skein of special sock yarn. The three main patterned sections are related feathery motifs that use a number of knit stitches between the yarn overs and their accompanying decreases to shape the fabric into peaks and valleys, including the wide shallow scallops that edge the piece. O...
Knitting: Mittens
These mittens feature a leaf-like lace pattern growing out of a rolled cuff and climbing up the back of the hand, and they end with a pointed tip. I think they look like mittens that a woodland creature would wear, if woodland creatures wore mittens.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
These are fairly easy and quick-to-knit socks that have a stocking vibe. They feature a fancy (and stretchy!) lace cuff and a “clock” pattern that begins just above the ankle, then divides at the juncture of the heel flap and instep and extends all the way to the bottom of the heel flap and the beginning of the toe shaping. Written and charted d...
