Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This cabled hat may look impressive, but there is nothing here more challenging than a 3/3 cable. The pattern is written, but cables are charted. All stitches are clearly explained in the abbreviations section.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Stay warm while cheering on your favorite team with this textured stocking cap!
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This relaxed-fit hat is the textbook definition of versatile! It looks great on men and women, is sized to fit the sweetest new baby up to the biggest, grizzled mountain man head, and can be worn loose & slouchy, or turned up at the brim for a fitted look. The crown features a unique finish that requires no decreases at all. Your friends wi...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
You’ll be on-trend with this mock-cabled toque. No cable needle necessary, but you’ll most likely want to add a pom pom to top off your wintery look!

Feature your favorite hand-dyed or hand-painted yarns with this clever hat pattern. The subtle texture won’t compete with your crazy colorway, and the slouchy style is sure to fit everyone comfortably!
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This slouchy hat will ward off a crisp, fall chill in style! If you prefer a more fitted hat, simply stop knitting 3” earlier than called for in the pattern and proceed directly to the decrease instructions.
Knitting: Cowl
Stay warm & stylish this fall with a fun new cowl! It’s written as a once-around-the-neck style, but it is easily adjustable in circumference (add or subtract groups of 24 stitches to make the circumference longer or shorter), as well as height (simply work more or less repeats of the Body Instructions)!
Knitting: Sleeveless Top
Every summer wardrobe needs a flowy, sleeveless top!
Knitting: Cowl
This cowl is knit in the round (as a tube) from a provisional CO, embellishments are added using surface crochet or embroidery, then it is seamed into a circle.

Knitting: Legwarmers
Please join us Jan.1 - Feb. 28, 2016 for a Color Packs & Stash Scraps Knit-along!
Knitting: Cardigan
This sweater was designed with my lovely mom in mind. Knit it for yourself, or for your own mom or favorite mother figure. The gentle shaping will flatter a wide range of figures, and the smooth Hempathy yarn has a comfortable drape and makes a great layering piece to keep on hand!
Knitting: Pullover
Jillian is a sweater with an open neckline and flattering shaping that will appeal to women of any age! Pick bright colors and wear it over a tank top for a more casual look, or choose more subtle shades for an elegant sweater fit for the workplace. Either way, you’ll end up with a wardrobe staple you’ll reach for again and again.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This gentle triangular shawl features a leafy lace border and a light, airy body. Perfect to pull over shoulders on cool summer nights or to wear as an indoor accessory in colder months!
Knitting: Tee
You’ve found the perfect knitted tee!
Knitting: Sleeveless Top
Looking for an easy summer project where you can dip your toes into colorwork? This breezy tank top uses just 11 rows of color work, and never more than 2 colors in any one row. Floats carried across the back are very short (never more than 3 stitches), which makes it easier to achieve even tension as a beginning color work knitter.
Knitting: Home - Other
The perfect ottoman can help you create a cozy and comfortable space for knitting, as well as give your room a little extra style. Whether you need a place to prop up your feet in the living room or a spot to rest while putting on socks in your bedroom, this ottoman can be the perfect solution!
Knitting: Cowl
This textured lace cowl is made with fingering yarn held double to create a squishy, plush cowl that will snuggle in around your neck. The 5-stitch pattern repeat has enough going on to keep you interested, but it’s not complex enough to slow you down. Pair this texture with a solid, semi-solid or tonal colorway for a sophisticated accessory.
Knitting: Mittens, Fingerless Gloves
A fantastic way to use small quantities of leftover yarn - these versatile mittens can be made as a colorwork pattern, or as a texture pattern with just one skein of yarn.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Get ready to brave the winter freeze in this warm cap! The textured brim is densely knit to keep ears extra-warm, and the slouchy, smooth stockinette body of the hat ensures a comfortable fit.

Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
Just a quick note, the yarn that this pattern was originally written for (Frog Tree Llambrosia) has changed names. It is now called HiKoo by skacel Llamor.
Knitting: Beret, Tam
Cozy up with your favorite bulky yarn to create a quick winter hat that will keep you cozy when the weather cools off!
Knitting: Cowl
Hepatica is a light lace cowl that is knit flat from a provisional cast-on, then grafted into a circle. It would work equally well as a flat scarf, when started from a long-tail cast-on and left ungrafted, if you are looking for a simpler project.
Knitting: Dress
As much of a staple to your little one’s wardrobe as oatmeal might be to her diet, this little dress can be made out of a sturdy yarn for every-day wear. Paired with a long-sleeved t-shirt and tights or leggings, your little girl will stay cozy and comfortable this fall and winter. And if she still hasn’t outgrown it this spring, switch to a t-...
Knitting: Sleeveless Top
This sleeveless top features a honeycomb-patterned yoke that is sure to be a hit with everyone in your knitting “Hive”! Knit from the bottom up, this top has no shaping until the textured yoke. This leaves the waist area nice and loose while the fitted yoke keeps the tank looking like you’re wearing the right size. And the long swath of stockin...

The winter of 2013-2014….what can I say? I think we’re all ready for it to end!
Knitting: Billed Hat
The summer of 2012 was the Summer of “Foyle’s War” for me. It was the series I’d play on the laptop while I knitted on my backyard patio.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
On November 17, 2013 a tornado tore through the town of Washington, IL. It leveled or damaged almost 1100 homes in a city with a population of only 15,000 people and in a matter of minutes, the town lost 47% of its residential property value.
Knitting: Pullover
Keep cozy as the weather cools off in the Celtic vines of the Orchard Pullover. This short-sleeved sweater is perfect for layering over a long-sleeved t-shirt. The oversized collar can be buttoned up and worn folded-over, or unbuttoned and worn flat. Cabled cuffs finish off the slightly-puffed sleeves and run up the edges of the collar to pull...

Knitting: Mittens, Beanie, Toque
Stay warm while looking cool this winter in the Wicker Park Slouch Hat & Mittens Set. Though named for Chicago’s “hipster” neighborhood, “wicker” is also reminiscent of the textured stitch used above the ribbing in both the hat and the mittens. The color work is the simplest kind, using slipped stitches so you never have to work with more t...

Knitting: Pullover
Looking for a new knit for those in-between seasons? Something that is comfy and still makes your guy take a second (and third, and fourth) look at you when you wear it? Tiny Dancer is just what you’re looking for. It has gentle, body-friendly shaping - I’ve had two kids, and this belly ain’t flat…but you’d never know it when you see me in this...
Knitting: Cardigan
Guacamole is a zippy layering piece offered in sizes 3 mo up to little girl’s size 6. Perfect for spring, fall or cool summer nights, this cardigan is as fun to make as it is to wear!
Knitting: Cowl
Early spring is a time of cleaning the leaves out of flower beds and enjoying the first tiny blooms that come out of the ground. In my neck of the woods, the central Midwest, it’s a time of year when we might still be in winter coats, or we may be able to get away with a light sweater. Either way, this lacy cowl is light enough to not overheat ...
Knitting: Cowl
This fun year-round accessory is a great project for any knitter, regardless of experience!

Knitting: Cowl
Is it a scarf or is it a cowl? Depends on your mood and how cozy you want to feel this winter!
Knitting: Scarf
One size fits all, though this design is easily modified by using different yarn and needle sizes. The scarf pictured was knit with fingering weight yarn on US size 4 needles (which results in a close-knit 6.25” X 60” scarf). Knit fingering weight yarn on size 6 or 7 needles for a looser “indoor accessory scarf” result or use a heavier weight y...

Cozy up with a new knitting project for your favorite little guy! This roll-neck raglan design gives you three options for style (and difficulty).

The duplicate-stitch design (shown on the baby) is easy enough for a beginner who has a few in-the-rou...
Knitting: Earflap Hat
Please note: The yarn used for this hat is listed as Aran only because that’s what has been listed as by the manufacturer. I think is is much more of a light worsted weight yarn, definitely thinner than your typical “red heart super saver worsted” that most people (at least in the United States) would be familiar with.
Knitting: Vest
Cooler weather means it’s time to layer! Made using the included rocket & moon charts, this sweater vest will win “cool points” with your little guy! Change up the color scheme and it’s easy to make this sweater vest into something any little girl would be happy to wear as well.

Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
I am so tired of hand-knitting socks that don’t fit. I have a pair that is so bulky that they’re more like “Sock Boots” because they don’t fit inside any shoe known to man. I have another gorgeous lace pair made from a very lightweight bamboo yarn that I can squeeze into a shoe, but because of the bumpy cable pattern, I end up walking around fe...
