Heidrun, in Norse mythology, was the name of a goat who would eat the leaves from the tree of life and then produce mead in her udder.
Knitting: Purse
Ms Moneybags features two designs, pick whichever you like.
Knitting: Cowl
Quoits (named for the game involving rings of rope), is incredibly easy to memorise and so is a great on-the-go project. It’s unisex, and makes a great gift if you are inclined to share your talent with others. Knit it in stripes to use up scraps or get the most out of one special skein of yarn. Knit it in your choice of 4ply (fingering) or a he...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Youturn is a little whimsical, I felt the need to work on a design that wasn’t typical in terms of construction. I’m easily bored and I like to play with techniques in order to preserve my interest. The heel turning in this sock is one I first worked with in my first Sock Club, four years ago. For some reason I haven’t returned to it since and I...
Knitting: Beret, Tam, Beanie, Toque
If you’ve never done colourwork before Bebop is a great option for a first project. The repeats are small enough that work is quick and the pattern builds predictably meaning you are not a slave to the chart as you are in less symmetrical designs. Most of the hat is comfortably worked on a 40cm circular; no moving between needles or turning your...
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
Ngaire (pronounced ny-ree, rhymes with fiery) is a very fancy pair of mitts, and is named in honor or a very dear friend who has a particular passion for such things. She (and I agree with her) likes them long, to keep her arms warm too. The length of Ngaire is adjustable, so you can tailor them to your own liking, but knit long they can be worn...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Miss Wonderly is a fairly straight-forward knit despite the complex appearance of her lace. The lace pattern is worked on every round but there are only six rounds to the repeat. The lace is kept to the front of the sock at all times so you have a quick, easy passage for half of every round. The lace makes this sock quite stretchy and it will fi...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
The main section of Clorinda is but two rows of pattern, all structural increases occur at the edges of the shawl, so progress is quick and doesn’t require you to carry the pattern with you. The short-rows in the edging give it plenty of length to stretch out when blocked and gives a lightly ruffled effect. The pattern is adaptable to different ...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Murex is a highly textured sock, lacy but not overtly so and not delicate in appearance.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Toe up, with cable details depicting an anchor and chain. Rope twists feature at the sides of the foot.
Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
Epsom is so named after the lace border it features. The Epsom lace border is an old one, popular in Victorian times but very simple to knit. It’s only a four row repeat and you’ll quickly memorize it. The top portion of the shawl is very straight-forward, making this project great for TV or company knitting. I’ve written the pattern conservativ...

Toe up.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Demelza is a pretty little shawl, ideal for Summer wear. The lace is very open, it incorporates yarn overs on every row but it is all worked in garter stitch and so doesn’t require any directional decreases or other complications.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
This pattern was part of instalment two of the Vintage Purls Winter Sock Club 2011.
Knitting: Beret, Tam
A textured hat, a little slouchy (though you can make it more so by working an extra repeat before the crown shaping if you desire), and you’ll easily work it from one skein. Blocking is the real secret behind this hat’s final look, don’t be afraid to treat your finished hat sternly, show it who is boss and get a lovely finished result. Do remem...

Knitting: Knee-highs, Mid-calf Socks
Neither toe-up nor top-down, this sock is started in the middle of the foot. The toe and heel are added as “afterthoughts”. This is a very quick knit, and the stitch pattern makes your yarn go a good distance, expect longer socks than normal.
Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
Knit from side to side, this shawl pattern is an easy knit, with a strong geometric lace motif trim (which is knit as you go).
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
