Longing for Spring during the cold winter months put Milou in my head. A light sweater in a fingering weight, Milou combines dainty lacy cables with a large travelling cable to create an eye-catching panel on the front. From there, oval cables run down the body to a seed stitch hem, while two repeats of lacy cables adorn the cuffs of the sleeves...

Knitting: Cardigan
An unexpectedly sunny winter day, a muddy walk in the woods with the dog, then back inside to warm up with a red wine by the fire. Am I knitting or wearing a Kersen cardigan? Perhaps both! Kersen is a top-down cardigan featuring an easy-to-work lace pattern in panels down the front and back, as well a pretty cable section. A seed stitch shawl co...

Garter stitch, stripes, short rows: Unruly adds its own voice to a familiar theme. The shawl is worked from the top down with stripes in three pretty colors.

Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Metamorphosis Shawl is a top-down, crescent-shaped shawl worked in three colors. Stripes change color in the center of the shawl, forming a zig-zag pattern while the colors alternate on each side. Metamorphosis: an abrupt change, in this case from one color yarn to the next. Just like its counterpart Metamorphosis Cardigan, this shawl is worked ...
Knitting: Cardigan
Amalfi is a lacy cardigan that is all about options. The pattern includes instructions for a color block cardigan in two colors as well as a solid cardigan, for two different types of raglan yokes, and for short sleeves and three-quarter length sleeves.
Knitting: Cardigan
At first glance Metamorphosis Cardigan seen from the front may seem like a simple striped affair, but wait, why do the stripes on the front alternate? The color of one stripe on the left side of the button band lines up with a stripe of the other color on the right. The back reveals all: stripes change color in the center of the back, forming a ...
Knitting: Cardigan
The sweetness of a little lace, the spice of cables and a lot of straightforward stotckinette stitch blend together to create Etching.

A lace panel runs from the top edge to the...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Stripes, lace and texture are the ingredients that went into the blend that is In Vino Veritas. An easy-to-work snowdrop lace pattern in two colors forms the main part of this small shawl. A ribbed section topped off with a row of eyelets follows the stripes, while short rows create the crescent shape. You could change things up by working the s...
Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
I love the great train stations of the nineteenth century. They are sometimes called ‘the cathedrals of the industrial age’ and it is their architecture that inspired this shawlette. The asymmetric shape reminds me of the support structures underneath the awnings and massive arched roofs of the stations, which were both functional as well as dec...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Imladris is a slouchy hat featuring a strongly textured lace pattern. Inspired by the landscape of Rivendell and Lothlórien in J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings, the lace on this hat reminds me of a lattice of intertwining branches and leaves. The lace pattern is straightforward and easy to remember, which combined with the aran or heavy-wo...

Knitting: Cardigan
Navona is a top-down, seamless cardigan full of stripey goodness. When I began to work on this cardigan I asked myself what I would want to wear sitting on an outdoor terrace in a piazza in Rome, sipping a cappuccino while it is still a bit cool outside: the answer is Navona. Directly beneath the raglan yoke the contrasting stripes begin. Wide s...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Stripes ahoy! If you’re in the mood for some more stripes this summer Centrifugue may be just the thing. Celebrating the fun of stripes with a whimsical, asymmetric design of stripes that widen toward the shawl’s edges, Centrifugue reminds me both of the effect of a centrifuge, which pushes things from a center towards the edge, and the musical ...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Skyline Shawl is a pretty crescent shaped lace shawl that puts the spotlight on two repeats of stunning Lotus Lace. Like its companion Waveline Shawl, Skyline Shawl is worked from the bottom edge up with easy short row shaping to form the crescent. The Lotus Lace pattern is a bit more challenging and will require more attention than the lace pat...
Knitting: Skirt
Summer Solstice is a cute girl’s skirt in cool cotton. Worked from the top down, Summer Solstice’s increases are incorporated in four cable lace ridges to create just the right amount of girly flare. Knitting the skirt at a fairly large gauge for a DK yarn creates a summer-y, airy fabric.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
The sound of guitars more or less defined my teens. From falling in love with the music of Nirvana and Oasis in the early 90s to boogieing to the Beatles, Bob Dylan and the Grateful Dead, there was always a guitar playing something, somewhere; a little folk-gone-electric riff here, a searing guitar solo there. I devoured Kerouac’s On The Road to...
Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
Colors in Search of an Exit is a open, airy crescent shaped shawlette in easygoing garter stitch with eyelets on the edges. The shawl is worked sideways from tip to tip with short rows to form the colored wedges, which in turn create a pretty crescent shape. Key design features are the purl bumps of one color overlapping with the next on the rig...

Waveline Shawl is worke...
Knitting: Cardigan, Tee
When I picture springtime, one of the first things that comes to mind is tulips: growing in our garden, while a watery sun tries to warm the still-chilly air, for sale on the market, in a vase on the kitchen table, growing in the grass by the side of the road… it’s no wonder tulips are one of the national symbols of my home country The Netherlan...
Knitting: Cardigan, Coat / Jacket
Applelicious is a children’s chunky sweater jacket with a garter stitch, square yoke and stockinette stitch body. Worked from the top-down, Applelicious requires no seaming.

Knitting: Brimmed Hat
Snow Blossom is a quick-to-knit hat featuring a simple Fair Isle flower border.

Looking for a fun little gift for your significant other (or anyone else who loves their coffee)? These coffee cozies may be just the ticket.

Knitting: Beret, Tam
Chunky yarn and lace are not the most obvious of combinations, yet it is exactly this combination that makes this slouchy beret stand out. A little ripple lace and a little shaping create a hat that looks almost as though it’s cabled, but is not. Ripples is knit from the bottom up on a circular needle, with double pointed needles to shape the to...
Knitting: Cuffs
These quick-to-knit cabled wristlets can be easily embellished using buttons or embroidery. They feature something a little special on the inside: a secret pocket!

Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
As a huge fan of vampire fiction, I’d been wanting to design something vampy for some time. Jardin Sauvage is a pair of fingerless mitts inspired by my favorite vampire of all, Lestat de Lioncourt from Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles. The black of the night, the crimson of blood, and the decadence of the Ancien Régime come together in these...

Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
Kensington Fingerless Gloves is a dainty pair of gloves in the same style and using the same stitch patterns as my beret pattern “Kensington”. Fingerless gloves are a fantastic accessory, useful in keeping the hands warm while allowing one to use one’s fingers, and a delightful style item to boot. These gloves feature a fairly simple leaf lace p...
Knitting: Cardigan
Nocturne is a short-sleeved swing-style cardigan top. The design was inspired by the trapeze A-line silhouettes of the sixties and will flatter virtually any shape. The retro contrasting hem is also reminiscent of vintage designs, but a solid color version of this cardigan would look fab as well. Worked in an aran-weight yarn, it’s the per...
Knitting: Cardigan
This pretty 1950s inspired cardigan is knitted from the top down with raglan shaping, with delicate cables at the cropped waist.
Knitting: Beret, Tam
Slouchy berets are great for dressing up a pair of jeans or dressing down your little black dress this holiday season. Better yet, they keep your ears warm and make nice gifts to boot, especially when knit in a pretty luxury yarn. This one is knit in an alpaca silk blend and takes just two 50g. skeins of yarn. The leaf lace pattern is fairly sim...
Knitting: Beret, Tam
Though berets were popular in the 1940s and 1950s, it wasn’t until the 1960s that they became especially sought-after. One look at a picture of Brigitte Bardot, Catherine Deneuve, or Faye Dunaway sporting a beret tells one why: It adds instant chic to any outfit.
Knitting: Cardigan
During my recent pregnancy, I loved designing a few baby items that our little one could wear. While designing and knitting baby things I would imagine what it would be like once our baby would be here. One of my designs was this little cardigan. Even though we did not know whether we would be having a boy or a girl, the design is rather girly w...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Most of my designs are planned in advance. I sketch, measure, calculate and then start knitting the first sample. But once in a blue moon a design happens very much on its own: I pick up the needles and the project just grows into something. When I started knitting, I didn’t know this yarn wanted to be a hat, let alone what type of hat, but this...
Knitting: Coat / Jacket
Who says that super bulky yarn must yield super boxy sweaters? This fitted little sweater jacket is knit with some of the bulkiest yarn available. The design has sprung from my love of all things vintage and especially of the mod fashion of the 1960s. The oversized collar can be worn up or down. The double moss stitch pattern gives the jacket a ...
Knitting: Booties
We are expecting our first little one in June ’09 and one of the perks of being pregnant is of course having the best reason ever for knitting lots of sweet tiny baby things. With this in mind, I designed this baby hat and booties set. The hat has a wide ribbed band in a contrasting color to the top, and the booties have a ribbed top in a contra...

Knitting: Scarf
My husband and I have a bit of a love affair with a part of France’s west coast, the province of Brittany. I used to spend three weeks there nearly every summer growing up, it was the destination of our honeymoon, and now that we live in England we take the ferry over whenever we can. What attracts me in Brittany’s coastline is that it is stunni...
Knitting: Cardigan
There are two chunky things I like quite a bit: chunky fudge brownies and chunky yarn. This vintage-inspired cardigan is named after both. I envision one wearing this on a cool Fall day while enjoying a yummy bite of hot chunky fudge brownie! Well, the brownie thing aside, I mostly picture one wearing this outdoors on a cool fall day, or indoors...
