You c...
Knitting: Stocking
My friend returned from a trip to Eastern Europe with a fabulous Fair Isle stocking cap and I thought it would be a lot of fun to make one with a less traditional color pattern and DK weight yarn. The Mod Stocking Cap is worked in the round while alternating colors and slowly decreasing. This hat is simple to make and lots of fun to wear! Pick ...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
As a child, my mother would knit reversible mohair hats for me and my siblings every winter. My favorite was a neon multicolor and black combination that I’m pretty sure I lost at the mall in my teens (sorry, Mom!). This design is inspired by those toasty hats but is made in sport weight wool instead – way less fuzzy but still just as warm with...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
The Basic Bulky Hat is just what it sounds like: an easy, quick-to-knit basic hat that uses just one ball of most super-bulky yarns. Adorned with a pom pom or tassel, it’s a trendy gift that won’t look like it only took an hour or two to whip up.
Knitting: Baby Blanket
Stuck at home and unable to get to the yarn shop, I had to knit a baby blanket… fast! I gathered all of the fingering, sport, DK, and worsted weight yarns I had and the Zucchini Blanket was born. Combining fingering and DK weights makes the equivalent of worsted, and holding two strands of sport together does the same. It’s a great way to use u...

Like little sparkly pea-pods, the beaded stripes of the Sweet Pea Necklace are as fun to crochet as they are to wear or gift!
Knitting: Cardigan
Is it just me… or are knits in the boy department lacking some pizzazz? I was looking for a pattern to make for friends having their second baby boy and finally (frustrated!) decided to make my own design. I wanted minimal seaming (not that I mind it), a cute hood, and some texture to keep me interested in the knitting of said sweater. Voila! T...

Knitting: Scarf, Cowl

Knitting: Cowl
Stripes of mesh-like mohair are paired with seemingly-solid sections of stockinette merino. These visual and tactile contrasts are separated by an explosion of sparkle.
