Alfred Hitchcock is the world’s recognized master in the art of cinematic suspense. His films, particularly those from the 1940s–60s, offered a signature blend of mystery, glamor, and wry humor that movie-makers have been mimicking ever since. If Hitchcock can inspire the film industry, then why not knitters as well?

March and April are my favorites months for our California native plant garden. Everything’s in bloom: the various Ceanothus, the Galvesia, and especially the poppies, Eschscholzia californica. In years in which we’ve gotten a lot of rain our yard is blanketed in orange blooms.

When I received the lovely Rios yarn in the Piedras colorway, I knew my original plan (a cabled cardi) wasn’t an option. I needed to find a stitch pattern that would highlight and utilize the gorgeous variegation of the yarn, something that would make the yarn, not the stitch patterns, the star.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque, Hats - Other
This hat takes advantage of the same stitch pattern as the cardi, alternating between the dot & reverse dot stitch patters to add textured stripes.

I wanted to design a shawl that incorporated traditional lace pat¬terns, reminiscent of peacock feathers, into a simple rectangular shawl. This is a good first lace piece for a confident knitter, but still has enough going on to maintain your interest if you’ve more experience.
Knitting: Mittens
Quatrefoil motifs are common in decorative iron and metal pieces. Here I’ve created a quatrefoil motif perfect to beginners to stranded knitting; in only one instance (working across the thumb gusset) do you ever carry a strand more than 1”. You can work the mitts in bold contrasting colors, such as the full mittens, or in a more subtle colorway.

Wrought iron gates, windows, screens, and stair railings can be incredibly detailed in examples of California Revival architecture.
