This pattern (along with most of my earlier work) was discontinued in the summer of 2022.

A handful of my absolute favorite patterns have come back (you can see all the currently available patterns here). A few more will likely come back over time. And I am absolutely still making new things! But I do not have any plans to have the whole catalog be generally available ever again.

However, enough people have asked about the discontinued patterns that I will probably make the discontinued patterns available for a few days once or twice a year.

If you want to know if that happens (or to hear about new patterns as they come out or to see what else I’m up to), the best thing to do is join the mailing list or the patreon!




Curls are marvelously flexible, wearable wraps that work with any weight of yarn, can be knit at any gauge, and look beautiful at any size.

Knit them small and wear them as a cowl. Keep going to make a scarf. Do a bit more, and you’ve got a shawl. They form a wonderfully curved shape that drapes beautifully around your neck and shoulders and can be worn in lots of different ways.

You can see several Curls laid out flat in the picture at the left (though please note the picture shows several of the patterns in the book, and the precise shape of the pieces differs slightly from pattern to pattern). And you can see some of the variety of ways to wear your Curl in the collage picture of all the patterns in the book. They really are marvelously versatile!
