Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This throwback style beanie is quick to knit. The big, bold pompom gives it plenty of attitude.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This semi-circular shawl is knit from the nape of the neck down to the bottom border. There are seven sections (including the border) and the stitch patterns and techniques get progressively more difficult as you move from section to section. Likewise, the instructions get more difficult: the first three sections are worked from written instruct...
Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
This large scarf begins at the bottom point with just 7
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
The culmination of my quest for perfectly fitting fingerless mitts. The pattern incorporates all my favorite elements. Instructions are given for two cuff styles and a unique roomy thumb that fits everyone well.
Knitting: Tote
Leather handles can be purchased from Homestead Heirlooms.
Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
This crescent-shaped scarf was specifically designed for those lovely skeins of hand-dyed sock yarn we all find irresistible. I have suggested four yarns, but any 100g hank of fingering weight yarn can be substituted.
Knitting: Cowl
I love the look of chunky cabled cowls, particularly close-fitting ones. But I couldn’t find a pattern that was exactly what I had in mind. Some had cables that crossed too closely, some crossed too far apart, some had too many cables, some had too few, some were too loose-fitting. I also wanted the option to use different weights of yarn....
Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
Ostrich feathers have been used for decades to make feather dusters. In this design, I’ve paired an ostrich plume stitch pattern with a lovely mohair/silk yarn to create a light-as-a-feather triangular scarf.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Small, crescent-shaped shoulder shawl worked entirely in garter stitch. Reversible!
Knitting: Scarf
The lace pattern used in the pointed ends of this scarf resembles the nib of a fountain pen and the strong lines in the main section are representative of ruled notepaper. The scarf is worked in a lightweight, 100% silk yarn with a tweedy texture. If you substitute yarns, I recommend a yarn with silk or linen content.
Knitting: Cowl
This warm, cozy cowl is based on my Forest Canopy Shoulder Shawl. The stitch pattern is presented in both chart and written form. It is easy to memorize and fun to execute. The slightly flared and scalloped edge flows from the leaf lace pattern. The cowl sits on the shoulders to block out the cold wind. The project works up quickly from just one...
Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
Instructions are given in both written form and charts. Additionally, the pattern contains instructions for both lace-weight and fingering-weight yarns.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
These mitts were born when I found a skein of decadent angora yarn in my stash and needed a pattern that used only one skein. They are worked in the round from the fingers down to the cuffs with a roomy afterthought thumb. Instructions are given for both a long and a short cuff. The wrist is shaped by changing the size of the needle. The simple,...
