A slouchy hat pattern with instructions for 7 different weights of yarn.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Sometimes you just want an easy project that you don’t have to think about a lot, but you don’t want to be bored either. This pattern is easy enough for the beginner knitter, but interesting enough for the more advanced knitter. It’s perfect for that one skein of fingering weight yarn you just bought or have in your stash. Although all samples a...

Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
This fun pattern lends itself to a variety of applications. Any DK weight and novelty yarns can be used. Experiment with yarns in your stash. The stitch pattern looks great in variegated yarns or solid. If you don’t want 3 stripes of fur, make 2 or 1, or try 4! The stitch pattern is a 4 row repeat and easy to keep track of. I can’t wait to see y...

Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
A great pattern for two contrasting colors of yarn. The striped border is reminiscent of our local boardwalk. The border is knit first, then stitches are picked up along one edge to knit the body. Short rows are used to create the graceful shaping.
Knitting: Cardigan
A great spring/summer cardigan by itself over a tank or shell or great for layering over long sleeves. It is a very wearable sweater.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
I wanted to design a hat that would showcase this striking colorful yarn. I decided that a ribbing pattern dominated by purl stitches would work well. For a little bit of interest I reversed the ribbing pattern for the edging. However, you may prefer the hat worn the opposite way, inside out or reversed.

I used these 3 different yarns to make different scarves and the 2 needle sizes with different yarns. I love this new twist on the spiral design with the jagged edge. The Somerset scarf worked up quickly and makes an all season scarf in cotton and silk.
Knitting: Cardigan
While I was working on this sweater, carrying it around in a clear plastic bag I realized that it looked just like cotton candy. Like cotton candy, it is made in one piece and swirled around to create the finished product. Not only does it work up great in mohair, but a smooth yarn works just as well.

Oversized cables, divided by dropped stitches distinguish this design.

3 different yarns in the same color palette are used one at a time to create a very lightweight shawl. You need to be comfortable with casting on (I recommend the knit on method) and carrying yarns along the edge. The drop stitch is used with the mohair and mohair fringe is added. An optional beaded crocheted edging can be added along the bottom.
Knitting: Beret, Tam
Two versions of a beret using a brushed alpaca yarn.

Knitting: Vest
Easy and quick to make in a straight piece with large needles. The trick is in sewing the vest together. Just follow the diagram and directions. It is a good introduction to following two simple stitch patterns, one being an easy cable, at the same time. An easy project for the intermediate knitter and a challenging project for the advanced begi...
Knitting: Purse
Yarn is used double throughout the bag. This is a great pattern for an “advanced beginner”. Easy to follow directions with very few abbreviations. There are helpful “tips” and a stitch glossary on the back page. The yarn is easy to work with and since it will be felted you don’t need to worry about an uneven tension.

Knitting: Coat / Jacket
This is a “concept” pattern. You can use whatever yarns you want, recommending yarns for a 10 or 10 1/2 needle. Gauge is not critical. The pattern tells you how to make the shape, guidelines how to make it to fit you and how to make the sleeves or sleeveless for a vest. It can be worn as a coat or jacket or vest.
Knitting: Cowl, Shawl / Wrap
A continuous circular wrap for your shoulders.
Knitting: Shrug / Bolero
This one piece shrug is knit from sleeve to sleeve. You can experiment and try other yarns as long as it is not too much thinner or thicker than worsted weight. It is easier enough to make longer, of course you will need more yarn. Have fun!
Knitting: Scarf
I tried to get the most out of one skein! Cashmere is expensive!
Knitting: Scarf
This pattern is a good way to use up those novelty yarns in your stash! You can change the pattern around to fit your own needs and yarn.
Knitting: Shrug / Bolero
The combination of novelty yarns in this bell sleeved, loosely knit shrug is dressy enough for evening or funky enough for jeans. The sleeves and back are worked in one piece, changing needle size to create some shape. After the sleeve seams are sewn stitches are picked up in the opening to finish off the shrug.
