eBook : 2 patterns

Want a quick and satisfying project? This hat and mittens will do the trick! Together, they use no more than 90 yds/80 m in the main color and no more than 75 yds/65 m in the contrast color. Each of the hat and the mittens patterns is available separately.

eBook : 3 patterns

The Sublimation Socks eBook includes three different gauges (6 st./in. by 8 rows/in., 7 st./in. by 10 rows/in., and 8 st./in. by 12 rows/in.) of one sock pattern, each in three different sizes (small, medium, large). That’s three gauges of the pattern for less than the price of two! You should purchase this eBook if you plan to make sublimation socks in multiple gauges. Otherwise, swatch and choose the pattern that most closely matches your row gauge. (And if you change your mind, you can upgrade from a single pattern to the eBook for the difference in price---$3.)

Knitting: Cowl
This cowl is actually a mathematical object, and both addictive and quick to knit. (The test knitters said so!). It is a particular generalization of a Mobius band, made by extruding a Y to a sort of three-finned thing, then rotating one end by 1/3 and gluing it to the other end. The schematic at left, fourth image, gives a hint of this shape. (...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
These are stripey socks that match stripily in the ankle area, but are otherwise color-mirrored. They are addictively fun to knit and it is easy to keep track of rounds within the pattern---in fact, it is easy to put down your sock-in-progress at almost any point in the pattern and then pick them up again and see quickly where you are. There are...
Knitting: Toy Plant
Because I couldn’t find a pattern on Ravelry that made just the grapefruit I envisioned, I created my own using Amy Szczepanski’s method of generating a knitting pattern for any surface of revolution (published in her chapter of Crafting by Concepts).

Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
These socks came about because I was knitting socks for Tom; hence, Tomsocks! The pattern is fun to knit and garners compliments even while in progress. The stitch pattern has exciting effects on some variegated sock yarns--try it out!
Knitting: Shrug / Bolero
This is a modified version of the free pattern Tertian by Lara Neel. (Owly Tertian is posted with her permission!) The name of the pattern comes from the fact that a pair of sleeves is about one-third of a sweater; tertian derives from the Latin for “one-third;” and, this pattern basically makes a pair of sleeves.
Knitting: Neck / Torso - Other
This pattern makes a… uh… wrap? scarf? stole? shrug? Your result can be any of these garments, or you can add light buttons to make it a convertible wrap-scarf-stole-shrug. It was originally designed as a shrug, but then seemed to make an excellent scarf… and wrap… and stole. The rectangular lace pattern naturally folds a...
Knitting: Shrug / Bolero
This pattern makes a simple lace shrug that’s perfect to wear when you’re just a little bit chilled. Unlike most shrugs that are knit side-to-side, the lace pattern produces visual vertical lines when worn. When designing it, I was surprised that such a fancy-looking pattern would arise from such simple stitches (of course, isn’...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
These socks were designed collaboratively with Rachel Shorey in order to display uses of Rachel’s Cool Increase. (A phototutorial for RCI is posted here.) RCI is used structurally in the mathematical heel (you can substitute a different heel if you want) and decoratively in the spiralling motif. Special thing about the heel: it’s don...
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
These stretchy handwarmers are an excellent use for a single skein or an extra 2oz. of worsted-weight yarn. The construction is simply a cylinder with a small split. The stitch pattern was designed using a tiny bit of mathematics so the knitter would only need to memorize a 12-stitch sequence but the pattern repeats every three rounds.
