Knitting: Cowl
The Mixed Up Mystery Cowl discussion thread can be found HEREand for support in German here though no translation is planned during the KAL dates.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Waves of shifting color radiate from the center point of this shawl in a pulsating pattern. All of the color changes happen automatically due to the self striping yarn, creating an interesting interplay of color as the rows get longer.
Knitting: Cowl
Winter is the season for gifts, and every year this is my go-to cowl for family and friends who are on my gift list. Worked in an airy lattice stitch, this cowl is still extra warm for winter because of the thickness of the recommended yarn.
Knitting: Cowl
This cowl, worked in an extreme wave pattern, gives a unique look to any self striping yarn. The tweed texture of the Noro Kibou yarn and bright colors remind me of an impressionist painting where blooming flowers are reflected in the ripples of a garden pond. The shape is slightly tapered for a better fit and can be worn up over the ears in col...
Knitting: Scarf
This unisex scarf has an extreme chevron motif evoking the image of a forested mountain range with peaks and valleys. Worked in a self striping yarn, this scarf will take on the personality of the any colors you choose, ranging from bright and cheerful to dark and subtle.
Knitting: Scarf
This scarf came about after I discovered the incredible Pepperberry Knits Mini Skein Fun Size Bundles. They are not quite enough to make a full scarf, so I also bought a full skein in a harmonious color. I was really looking to make a self indulgent, special yet practical scarf, but the result is just too good to keep for myself.
Knitting: Scarf
This scarf is inspired by the fun, expressive accessories that you see on the streets of Brooklyn as the weather begins to change. Worked in 2 weights of yarn, it is a perfect way to play with color and use up some single skeins left over after larger projects. Pattern contains photo tutorials to help you tie the fringe.
Knitting: Scarf
Trig Scarf is a modular scarf with a simple and fun construction. There’s no sewing or complicated colorwork. Knit in all garter stitch, each triangular section is simple enough to be relaxing, but short rows keep things interesting. This pattern is the easier, scarfier sibling of the Trig Wrap.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
The Psychedelic Shawl is a twisty, turny flame stitch motif bordered by traditional feather and fan lace. This pattern uses a gradient yarn and stacked stitches to create a unique chevron stripe inspired by rainbow posters of the 1960’s and vintage knitwear.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
The Mongolian Ski Hat is a unisex winter hat inspired by the warm, brightly colored hats that are a trademark of traditional Mongolian dress. The short row brim is contoured to keep ears warm. Photo tutorials for making the overlap in the front of the hat and for the contrasting color welt are included in the pattern.
Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
This scarf is inspired by the traditional textiles of Uzbekistan. It is shown in 2 weights of yarn, each with slightly different sizes. The fingering weight scarf has more depth and can also be worn like a shawl while the worsted weight version is longer and works well worn around the neck.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
An any season scarf knit in the shape of a lightning bolt. Combining neon yarn with a speckled color can have a shocking result. If you do not want to hold 2 yarns together, substitute with a DK or Sport weight yarn for a single stranded version, or even double up on a fingering weight yarn for a heavy weight, warmer winter scarf.

Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
The Lotus Challenge is a project for knitters with a desire for adventure. It uses the same stitch motif as the Lotus Flower Shawlette, but unlike it’s simpler twin, the pattern is repeated multiple times in rotating colors.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Lotus Flower shawlette is inspired by the color and imagery of Tibetan mandalas. The lotus flower rises from the muddy water to create a beautiful and pure flower, a metaphor for the ability to rise above a bad situation or to make something beautiful amid unfavorable circumstances.

Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Ziggy star hat is a unisex beanie with a chevron motif. The uniquely constructed crown comes together in the shape of a star. The Swans Island yarns all seem to coordinate well, and with 2 skeins, you will actually have enough for 2 hats in reversed colors (yardage estimates in pattern are rounded up), making this a great gift knit.
Knitting: Hanging Ornament
These stars are a fun way to learn stacked increases. You may have seen these in the Fox Paws or Solarita patterns and wondered how they work. You can use these fun stars to practice stacked increases before jumping into a more complex project, or just make them because they’re a lot of fun. Stacked increases are worked by slipping stitche...
Knitting: Scarf
The Zipper is a unisex sideways knit scarf with a unique ripple pattern. Inspired by the dots and curves in Aboriginal art, the wave motif provides a great foundation for any color combo. It looks great in dark colors or brights, making it bold or subtle.
Knitting: Hanging Ornament
The Oak Leaf is a fun little introduction to stacked decreases. This technique can be used to create lobe shaped edging, flame stitch motifs, and shaping. You may have seen it in other patterns like Fox Paws which use the wavy stitch in colorwork. Stacked decreases are worked by slipping stitches back to the left needle to work them again.
Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
Fox paws is a rectangular wrap with a distinctive stripe motif that looks like little interlocking fox feet. Using only increases and decreases, stripes are shaped into extreme waves using the same technique as the Petal Cowl pattern but with more unusual shapes. It can be worked in 2 or more colors without any stranded or intarsia techniques so...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
I was thinking of the sun, margaritas, and very warm, autumnal shawls when I designed this crescent wrap. I’m even cold in the summer sometimes. Especially after dark, or in late August when the weather starts to shift. Thinking of the summer sun setting as I sit outside with friends, chatting and watching the sky change color - this is wh...
Knitting: Cowl
Petal is a cowl designed to highlight the color shifts of a self striping yarn. The stitch shapes are inspired by flower petals, fish scales, and vintage crochet afghans. A great summer knit, or a cold weather project when made in heavy yarn. A unique stitch is used to create an extra long chevron motif which sets this cowl apart.
Knitting: Scarf
Feather Flame is a chevron patterned scarf knit on the bias. It has a scalloped edge and a slight curve that makes it easy to wear. The stitch pattern can be scaled to fit any gauge and yarn weight. Self striping sock yarn gives definition to the waves of the flame stitch pattern.
Knitting: Scarf
Sometimes you want a complex project to work on, but other times you just want to relax and watch a movie while you make some last minute holiday gifts. This pattern is for a brioche stitch (fisherman’s rib) scarf with tidy edges and an easy to memorize one line pattern.
Knitting: Scarf
Did you ever wonder what would happen if a pair of gloves and a scarf had a child? What would happen if you just reached into your scarf every time your fingers were cold?
Knitting: Scarf
The cabled scarf is a winter classic because cables are a perfect way to create a thick, warm fabric for cold weather wear. Each side of this scarf has a distinctly different cable motif, yet the pattern is no

Knitting: Cardigan, Coat / Jacket
The Midnight Blazer is a fitted blazer with structured shoulders and a fitted waist. This silhouette is designed to flatter “pear shapes” by drawing the eye up and balancing a bottom heavy figure. Taking cues from the runway, this sweater is perfect to wear to work, yet still fun enough to wear out in the evening.
Knitting: Scarf, Beanie, Toque
Thick & Thin hat and scarf are celebrate the natural beauty of hand knits. The contrast of scale and simple geometry make both of these accessories classic with just enough interest to hold your attention.
Knitting: Tee
I was listening to spellbound by Siouxie and the Banshees and had this idea for something punk-ish and cropped.
Knitting: Pullover
Most knitters aren’t too into drop sleeves because of the overly simple shape and associations with oversized ’80s sweaters, but drop sleeves are showing up everywhere now in a refined and slender new form. Taking inspiration from high end brands like Vince, Mango, and Opening Ceremony, this sweater has a figure flattering modern sil...
Knitting: Pillow / Cushion, Lampshade
This pattern is for a textured felt lamp shade in multiple sizes and matching pillows in two sizes. The lamp shade can be sewn over a preexisting shade or a handmade frame. DIY instructions for a metal lamp shade frame are included in this pattern as well as a lesson in lamp anatomy and safety. These housewares are a great project for all season...
Knitting: Shrug / Bolero
This pattern is for a shrug or bolero type cardigan with elbow length dolman sleeves and optional contrasting Moss stitch trim. It is a cropped length, short in the front and reaching down to the waist in the back. The front is open and slightly curved with some bust shaping for adults. Loosely knit fingering weight yarn makes this perfect for s...
Knitting: Cowl
This pattern is for both the fingering and worsted weight cowl. Both versions are loosely knit for a drapey fabric.
Knitting: Cloche Hat
This hat is a hybrid of two vintage styles: the cloche and the turban. Inspired by the 1920s, it has an old style feel but is not too out of place in our postmodern world. When worn with the gathering on the sides, it looks like a cloche, with a close fitting bell shape. When turned 90 degrees so the gathering is in the front, it looks more like...
Knitting: Beret, Tam
This beret came into existence the week of the Halloween snow storm. My sister asked me to make her a hat, and I decided to make a design project of it. I wanted whatever I made to look good with her curly brown hair. She’s the kind of person who has three young kids and magically white sofas, and a really nicely decorated house. She likes...
Knitting: Headwrap
So I was shopping at a certain urban clothing store when I saw this turban. The idea was nice, but there was some bunching in odd places and the price was way off (for an acrylic hat) so I decided to make my own. Now this isn’t an exact copy of their design, it has some improvements to the fitting, a rounder shape, and fewer seams (more than the...

Knitting: Beanie, Toque
The Techniques in the pattern are a bit advanced, it is helpful to understand short row shaping and circular knitting before you begin.The style is inspired by fractals, and uses mathematical knitting to create a rounded shape. It looks like a flower, a pine cone, and a romanesco.
Knitting: Cowl
Combination cowl, hood, hat pattern knit in the round. This is a very fast one skein project.
