Knitting: Thigh-high
I love vintage patterns - so cute and so practical! That’s why I designed these thigh high baby stockings with their very vintage appearance. This pattern is cuff-down, and its construction does not lend itself to toe-up conversion.
Knitting: Knee-highs
I was intent on figuring out and replicating the perfect shaping of vintage baby stockings and it worked! This is a cuff-down pattern, but it’s construction would lend itself to being converted to toe-up if the knitter desired.
Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
This pattern makes a shawl-width scarf, just as pictured in the movie, Emma. Houses were chilly in those days, and men often wore shawls and caps in the house to keep warm. I you use 1/4 of the cast-on stitches, you’ll get a modern adaptation of a normal scarf width.
Crochet: Fingerless Gloves
This pattern works well with a variety of light weight yarn from fingering through lace weight. The lacy effect will be more open or less open depending on yarn weight chosen.
Knitting: Towel
These cotton towels are soft immediately, but will get more soft and more absorbent with use.
Knitting: Hot Water Bottle
This is a warm and comforting hot water bottle cover - perfect for those trying times when you need to reverse the Curse!
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
The Sensitive Man sock is designed for someone with very sensitive feet and includes features meant to not only cushion the foot but to avoid blisters or rough places that would rub on irritated skin. They are very soft!
Knitting: Cloche Hat
This pattern is now available in my Ravelry Store.
Crochet: Cape
Please Note: This pattern was updated on September 11, 2015 to correct the number of cast on stitches. If you have previously purchased this pattern, you will have received a link to download version 2 with the corrected information.
Knitting: Coffee / Tea Pot
This adaptation of a classic vintage pattern keeps the tea hot while adding charm to your tea-table. The clever stitch creates two layers of fabric for super warmth. You are knitting with 2 skeins at once, but once you get the rhythm, it’s easy.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
Just in time for Halloween!
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
These gloves are so stretchy they fit a variety of sizes, making them a good gift for people.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
The first two versions are made with Noro Silk Garden. This is a good yarn for a nice light winter hat. The third version, the light blue one made from Cotton Angora, is a sleeping cap I made for a friend who lives in a cold house. The cotton is just perfect for sleeping!
Crochet: Shawl / Wrap
The original pattern is from the 1918 Fleisher’s Knitting and Crochet Manual, now in the public domain. I updated the pattern directions for use, using modern tools, materials and conventions.
