Pay What Works: Inspired by the models of other designers that I trust and respect, I’m now offering a “Pay What Works” model. I like this model because it accurately reflects the pride that I take in all of my designs and the effort that I put into them, while staying true to my heart: that knitting should be accessible to everyone, no matter what their current life situation.

Each of these codes will adjust the cost of the pattern to the final cost listed below (the cost listed is what you pay, not the discount amount). Please choose a price that you feel represents my work, but that also allows you to take joy in knitting this pattern without stress or financial burden.

This pattern originally was designed for By Hand #13: Northern California.

The soft and subtle colors for this cardigan remind us of terracotta walkways and the stucco houses that dot San Francisco’s streets. A panel of mosaic knitting is the perfect way to play with speckled skeins from The Black Squirrel.
