Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This colorwork hat was designed for the Medina Fall Knitting Train that I sponsored. It is such a beautiful time of year in our area of western New York that I wanted the hat to showcase the fall leaves.

These half mitts shows off the beauty of the bavarian twisted stitches. The twisted stitches also give the mitts lots of elasticity which makes it suitable for a variety of hand sizes.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This hat was designed to go with the cowl of the same name. I have used it to teach two color brioche in the round. You can add more repeats of the design if you choose. Or it can be done in plain two color brioche rib.

The Special Bamboo Mitts are named after my daughter. When she was studying in China they gave her a chinese name which translated to Special Bamboo. I think the stitch looks a little bit like the bamboo plant.
Knitting: Cowl
This cowl design was inspired by the rays of the sun piercing through the clouds on a cloudy day.
Knitting: Cowl
The cowl is knit in one piece. If you would like to make it longer or shorter just increase (or decrease) the middle repeat section. If you make it longer you will need additional yarn.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This hat is knit in two colors. One size fits most. Knit it in either smaller or larger needles to adjust the size.
Knitting: Mittens
These mittens are knit in one piece. The lace portion is knitted on the larger needle, then the remainder is knit on the smaller needle. This creates a warm and tight cover for your hands.
Knitting: Cowl
This two color cowl is a great way to learn two color brioche. I find that it’s easier to see how the brioche stitches if you learn it with two colors. are arranged so that you can really learn the stitch. Once you have the first row set up, you will only be working with one color per row.
Knitting: Cowl
This cowl was inspired by nature and a wonderful Japanese stitch dictionary. I changed the original stitch and added some detail between the cables. Once the cowl was finished it reminded me of the knots that form so organically in trees. They add beauty and dimension to a tree. These cables seemed to do the same for this cowl with lots of flow...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This hat with the yarn in mind. A simple quick knit that showcases the yarn well but still has an interesting knitting pattern. It is a good design for men & teens, because it’s not too fussy.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This hat is a comfortable and warm hat. Since the yarn is so bulky I decided a simple mesh pattern would be a good way to keep the hat from feeling like a helmet.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This shawl is worked in two parts. When knitted in this way, the lace moves in an upward sprouting shape. This reminds me of the first plants of spring that sprout out of the ground after a long cold winter. It’s a promise from mother nature that warmth and sunshine
Knitting: Cowl
Dragonfly Yarn is a wonderfully soft yarn. It holds up to lots of frogging, while I was figuring out my final design.
Knitting: Cowl
-9 degrees in March was written during a record cold temperature. The cowl is double thick so it will be cosy warm during any cold snap, or for any long cold winter.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Crocosmia is a large crescent shaped shawl. The lace runs the length of the stockinette section and ends in the leaf shape at the bottom edge of the shawl. The edging is enhanced by using a contrast color for the picot bind off.
Knitting: Scarf
#15 US/10mm - 24” circular needle. Gauge is not critical, and cast-on may be adjusted by adding or subtracting 10 sts.
Knitting: Scarf
Choose any aran/heavy worsted yarn and knit with a large needle to give the yarn a nice drape. Obtaining a specific gauge is not necessary. Make the scarf as short or as long as you’d like with 6 row repeats.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This pattern is a variation of Hot Cheeli - not just smaller, but a slightly different version of the same elements to make the most of the smaller size.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
According to Greek Mythology, Philemon & Baucis were a married couple who loved each other so much that when they died, the gods turned them into two trees that intertwined for eternity. So the mitts are two but each cable twists toward the other cable– just like in the myth.
Knitting: Cowl
This pattern contains directions both Worsted and Fingering yarn.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Shawl is square shaped, so it lies on the shoulders nicely which makes it easy to wear since it won’t slip.
Knitting: Cowl
This cowl is worked in the round without purling…ever! You will get the appearance of Stockinette stitch and Reverse Stockinette stitch, simply by changing the direction of your knitting.
