Knitting: Cardigan
Wee Melia is a cozy and practical jacket that’s also, in red, great fun for dressing up as Little Red Riding Hood. Worked from the top of the hood down and with borders very little finishing is required. The cabled honeycomb pattern adds warmth and structure and is very easy to work efficiently without a cable needle. The single button closure m...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Featuring a bold chevron pattern Elbert is equally at home topping winter layers or making the difference between a tank top and long sleeves on a Northern summer’s day. The stranded colour work creates a warm, cushy fabric, has an easy rhythm and creates an interesting crown pattern. In all sizes there will be enough leftover from a single skei...
Knitting: Pullover
This little sweater is the result of a silly challenge I set myself the day before a scheduled photoshoot with a newborn. That adorable sleepy stage is fleeting and new parents have enough to deal with without me showing up constantly, camera in hand, and a bag full of outfits. Could I knit just one more sweater in a day? I could. I wouldn’t nec...
Knitting: Cardigan
The perfect introduction to traditional stranded colourwork techniques. The body and sleeves are worked upwards from the folded hems separately to the underarm and joined for the seamless raglan yoke. Shaping for well-padded bottoms is provided by way of a cute gathered detail at the back and the cuffs can be folded up to show the contrasting in...
Knitting: Cardigan
This sweet little sweater has come full circle. From a photo of a toddler in a 1940s pattern book to one of my most popular designs for women back to a cardigan for little ones. Garter yokes on babes have been cute for generations but Wee Cria is thoroughly up to date featuring the same innovative seamless construction as its big sister: rectang...
Knitting: Cardigan
Worked seamlessly from the top down Wee Chickadee is the perfect introduction to both this style of garment construction and stranded colourwork. There are only eight purl rows worked in two colours so the bulk (and potential scariness) of cutting / steeking your knitting is avoided. Sized from three months to four years with garter stitch cuffs...
Knitting: Cardigan
A tiny version of one of Ysolda’s most popular women’s sweater designs. Liesl is a round yoked cardigan worked from the neck down in a simple allover feather and fan lace pattern. Shown in a luxurious wool and silk blend sportweight yarn that’s surprisingly easy to care for; Liesl would be beautiful as part of a special occasio...

Knitting: Cardigan
Currently available in The Rhinebeck Sweater, individual Apple Cider Donut is simply worked from the top down in one piece in stockinette stitch. The stitches for the collar are then picked up and worked in a very easy reversible cable and rib pattern; the collar can be worn up or folded over. The sample uses Fisherman 2-ply from Bartlettyarns, ...
Knitting: Pullover
Artichoke French is worked seamlessly, from the bottom up, in the round with raglan shaping and a mock turtleneck. Thumbholes are integrated into the elongated sleeves; if you want to skip this AWESOME design element, just cast on for the sleeves right after the thumbhole is worked.
Knitting: Pullover
The construction is seamless: the body and sleeves are knit separately, then the upper body is worked in a single piece, with set-in sleeves that are shaped as you go.
Knitting: Pullover
Stitch patterns arranged in a classic Fisherman’s panel style with asymmetric cables for an unexpected, modern twist. Keeping detail outside of the main panel to a minimum reduces bulk. The double seed stitch panels on each side do allow you to play with shaping should you desire. Sleeves knit with only a slim cable keep things simple and ...
Knitting: Pullover
Dutchess has a simple construction to show off the bold colourwork design. The body and sleeves are worked in the round to the armholes, then joined for the circular yoke. Short rows are used to raise the back of the neck after the sleeves and body are joined. The yoke and neckband are worked in the round.
Knitting: Cardigan
Worked from the bottom up, the lower body ribbing is worked back and forth in rows, and then joined with centre front steek stitches for working in the round, making the colourwork sections easy and fun to knit. Sleeves are knit in the round up to where they are joined with the sweater body. Then the yoke is worked in the round. V-neck shaping a...
Knitting: Pullover
Maple Cotton Candy is worked in pieces from the bottom up and seamed, with set-in sleeves. The textured stitch beautifully shows off subtly variegated yarn without being too busy or difficult to shape, and the seed stitch makes for a lovely accent.
Knitting: Pullover
A deceptively simple raglan sweater that will be well-noticed on the fairground coming and going. A cute cut-out detail at the upper back brings a little bit of attitude to this marled pullover. Knit all in one piece in a textured stitch using two yarns held together, Mulberry Street makes a great layering piece over a blouse or tee.
Knitting: Pullover
Pippin is knit bottom up, beginning with a folded hem. The A-line shaped body divides at the underarms, and the front and back are worked flat. Increases are made at the outside edges of the front and back to create a modified drop shoulder or dolman type of sleeve without adding too much bulk at the underarm. The shoulder stitches are then graf...
Knitting: Cardigan
Pumpkin Ale started with a list: for Rhinebeck I wanted a versatile cardigan that could be worn open or closed; worn as a jacket, possibly even layered over a thinner sweater if the weekend was cool; pockets were a must for keeping change, business cards and a map handy; and the silhouette should be one that was easy to wear for many different b...
Knitting: Cardigan, Vest
Despite being worked in sock-weight yarn, this light vest, framed in a simple lace, is very fast to knit up. The front bands are knit at the same time as the body of the vest and continue around the back neck. Leave the edges raw for a casual look, or single crochet a narrow edging around the armholes and hem for a polished look.
Knitting: Cardigan
Sugarleaf’s body is worked back and forth in one piece, from the top’s face-framing circular yoke colourwork section down. Sleeves are picked up after the body is worked and knit seamlessly from underarms to the cuff. The cuffs and hem are trimmed with a garter rib, and a simple I-cord bind-off along the fronts and neck of the cardigan makes a t...
Knitting: Pullover
Strokkur was inspired by traditional Icelandic Lopapeysas: cozy sweaters with colourful yoke patterns. First made for a trip to Iceland a few years ago, the original has travelled with me ever since. Knit in Icelandic wool it’s been my ‘go to’ garment for chilly, damp days. Another trip to Iceland, and the fact that the original sweater was look...
Knitting: Pullover
Worked from the bottom up the body features darted waist shaping that hits a little higher than the natural waistline, which I find is more flattering to the majority of women. Three quarter length sleeves are simply a personal favourite, but could easily be lengthened if you don’t find yourself constantly pushing sleeves out of the way, as I do...

Knitting: Scarf
A sweet pixie hood inspired both by cute patterns from the forties for little girls and more glamourous ones of starlets in headscarves. The vintage patterns I looked at involved working separate rectangles for hood and scarf, but this one uses a neat cast on method more commonly used for toe up socks to begin the hood and scarf together at the ...

Three petals bloom from the centre top edge, their points organically growing into the three spines of yarn over increases. This unusual increase pattern creates the perfect shape for staying in place around your shoulders. The petals along the edge are grouped into threes, echoing the centre and forming deep scallops.

Nathaniel will bring a little woodland whimsy to your home. He’s fun to knit, although he’s made of 2 flat silhouettes with a garter stitch strip between them he’s knit seamlessly in the rnd.

The beret is knit sideways in garter stitch and composed of eight wedges shaped with short rows. Because it’s in garter stitch there is no need to bother with picking up the wraps and the only part of this pattern that really pushes it into the tangy category is grafting the two short ends together to transform the unrecognizable curl of k...
