Knitting: Scarf, Belt
This scarf is a chain of figure eights, hence the name (which means “Crazy Eights” in Spanish). The short version makes an intriguing piece of neckwear or a belt, and the longer chain will wrap around multiple times. Thread the links through one another or make two scarves to link together. Work as many links as you like, using more yarn to mak...
Knitting: Scarf
This scarf is a good introduction to some fun reversible cable techniques and features a cable version of a Greek meander. The meander symbolizes bonds of friendship, love, and devotion. Doubling the yarn produces a pleasantly springy fabric and a very dimensional cable. This fabric grows quite a bit after washing.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This shawl is shaped like the Taurus  symbol--a head and two horns. The head is worked first, from the center out, and then stitches are picked up and worked down for each horn.  The left horn represents stability, a  common Taurean characteristic, and the right horn the new growth of April and May.

This series contains the patterns for the Summer Party Shrug, Summer Party Bag, and Summer Party Top.
Knitting: Shrug / Bolero
Just right for slipping on over a sleeveless dress or jeans and a cami, this shrug is knit back and forth from the middle of the back and over the shoulders, then worked from the top down with the easiest set-in sleeves ever. The Frill Stitch adds just the right touch to this garment sized for children and adults.
Knitting: Sleeveless Top
This sleeveless top looks great with shorts or jeans for a casual party or with a long skirt for evening. It is worked from the top down so you can try it on as you go.
Knitting: Mittens
These cozy mittens combine cables and colorwork and feature “afterthought” thumbs. The Greek meander on the palms and thumbs symbolizes friendship, love, and devotion. The sinuous cables on the back of the hand are reminiscent of the reverse side of the Meandros Scarf.
Knitting: Pullover
This sweater gets its name from the Greek meander running up around the collar and cuffs in purl stitches. A similar intarsia meander goes up the center and under the arms. Meanders symbolize friendship, love and devotion, and eternity.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque, Hats - Other
Sized for children through adults, this hat is a good introduction to mosaic (slip-stitch) colorwork. A Greek meander travels around the base of the crown. It symbolizes bonds of friendship, love and devotion, and eternity. The hat can be worn as modeled, or pulled down snugly over the head for added warmth.

Knitting: Knee-highs
These whimsical knee-high socks are coordinated but not identical. Feel free to work two of one or the other pattern if you prefer matched socks. These socks feature a method of stranded color-work knitting which results in a virtually jogless pattern.
Knitting: Headband, Beanie, Toque
This winter accessory features geckos playing on a brick path. This pattern makes a hat or a 4 inch wide headband that can be worn over the ears for warmth. Instructions for grafting (headband only) are included.
