Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This is only the correct chart B for my Swan Shawl from Sock Yarn One Skein Wonders, which was published with errors (only in the book--the individual pattern leaflets distributed through LYSes which sell Anne are correct).

Knitting: Pullover
This GORGEOUS men’s sweater uses 6 skeins of Schaefer Yarn’s Miss Priss, 2 each of 3 different colors in a slip stitch pattern that mixes up the colors from skein to skein so there is a subtle shift in color and no obvious striping. A distinctive unique knit for the man in your life!

Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This triangular shawl starts with just seven stitches at the center back neck. Increases at the sides and center shape the triangle, which ends in deep scallops along the lower edges.

I’ve (finally!) combined the original 4 clues into a single PDF and put it in my usual formatting. I also added directions for customizing the heel directions to your own row gauge.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Thinking about colorwork but not quite ready to commit to an entire sweater? Practice on the cuffs of these socks before you move onto something bigger. They’re worked from the cuff down, with a flap heel and star toe.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
These spring-y, lacy socks are knit from the toe up, with a reverse flap heel and a picot hem at the cuff. The lace pattern is number 16 from Knitting Lace: A Workshop with Patterns and Projects, by Susanna E. Lewis, and the heel technique is adapted from New Pathways for Socks Knitters, by Cat Bordhi.
Knitting: Scarf
Try this variation on 3 x 3 basket weave the next time you’re looking for an easy-but-interesting stitch pattern for a scarf. The 3 x 3 squares keep it from rolling, while the wraps mix up hand-painted yarn and increase the smooshiness quotient. As a stash-busting bonus, the wraps also use up more yarn than a usual knit and purl design.

Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Just as easy to work as 2 x 2 ribs, these offset ribs form spirals from one end of sock to the other. The spirals are just as stretchy as ribs, so they adjust to fit a variety of feet. Best of all—if your knitted ribbing is slightly uneven and funny looking (like mine), this stitch will still work up evenly.
Knitting: Cardigan
This flattering cardigan features a deep V-neck, three-quarter sleeves, and subtle empire waist shaping. Two variations on linen stitch mix up the colors of handpainted yarn, or dress up solid yarn to create fabric that looks almost woven.
Knitting: Pullover
Interesting construction, handpainted yarn, and squishy garter stitch combine to create a flattering, close-fitting pullover. Sleeves, front, and back are knit flat and joined, then the yoke is worked in the round.
Knitting: Baby Blanket
Thick and thin texture and garter stitch combine to create a squishy, cozy blanket. Interesting construction, but relaxing to knit once you get going. Strategically placed increases and decreases create the ripples, and mostly prevent color pooling.
Knitting: Shrug / Bolero
This baby-sized bolero knits up quickly enough to finish before it’s outgrown or to give as a last-minute shower gift. It’s knit from side to side with seed stitch edging. Matching panels of seed stitch run up the sleeves from cuff to shoulder.
Knitting: Animal Toy
Fish aren’t usually cuddly, but this this one is! Covered with knit-in ruffled fins and stuffed with fiberfill, the fish is finished off with googly bobble eyes. Pick a bright handpaint for a tropical look, and machine washable yarn so there’s no need to worry about dirt.
Knitting: Cuffs
I’m tall, and the cuffs of my gloves never quite overlap enough with my sleeves to keep out drafts. These wrist warmers (I think of wrist warmers and scarves as caulk for people) fill the gap nicely. The ribbed middle hugs your wrist, the stockinette end flares over your hand (and fits over your gloves).
Knitting: Cardigan
This versatile, wrap-front raglan cardigan is knit seamlessly from the top down. Gentle waist shaping flatters most figures, while the wrap styling allows for additional flexibility in fit. The lower hem is finished with a simple turned hem, while the cuffs and front trim are seed stitch, faced with stockinette.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
These top-down socks feature a ribbed cuff, flap heel, and an easy-but interesting stitch pattern that forms a stretchy fabric. The ribs appear to be mini cables, but are actually one mini-cable and an unusual slipped-stitch and YO arrangement. The socks can be worked using DPNs, 2 circs, or the magic loop technique.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
The three stitch patterns in this shawl, Dainty Chevron, Daintier Chevron, and Arrow Pattern, are borrowed from Barbara Walker’s A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns. Row numbers have been adjusted from those in the book so odd-numbered rows appear on the right side, and each section begins on row 1.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This triangular shawl starts with just five stitches at the center back neck and grows out to deep scalloped points along the lower two edges. The main stitch pattern is number 42, from Knitting Lace: A Workshop with Patterns and Projects, by Susanna E. Lewis. It’s large enough to keep your shoulders warm, but small enough not to overwhelm a non...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
I have a knack for casting on the exact number of stitches to make hand-dyed yarn pool (hey, everyone needs a superpower, right?), so I’m always on the lookout for ways to break up the color repeats. The tuck stitch caught my eye, but in the round, all of the rows would purled, and I’m not willing to purl an entire pair of socks. And then it hit...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
These toe-up socks have a ribbed foot, short row heel, and a charted cable on the cuff. A nice mix of mindless and interesting: relax through the foot, pay attention in the cuff (just as you’d usually get bored and be tempted to set them aside!).

Knitting: Cardigan
The piCardigan is a relaxed, top-down raglan with waist shaping and slightly flared, elbow length sleeves. Simple turned picot hems at the cuffs and hips match a more dramatic wide picot-edged neck band for a neat finish inside and out. Polished enough to wear over a dress or with a skirt, relaxed enough to wear with jeans.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
This is a simple toe-up sock pattern with a figure-eight cast on and short row heel (although it would be easy to sub in your favorite toe or heel). The stitch pattern, “Seaweed” from Barbara Walker’s second treasury was easy to memorize. Although it’s not a standard rib, it’s kind of rib-ish, so the socks are stret...
Knitting: Scarf
A couple of years ago a friend gave me a skein of handpainted cashmere yarn. Tiny but gorgeous. I petted it for months, trying to figure out how to stretch it into an entire Something.
Knitting: Coat / Jacket
Handpainted and other variegated yarns have one significant problem when it comes to sweaters: horizontal stripes! This sweater replaces them with flattering vertical stripes, created by combining a very variegated handpaint with a semi-solid.
