Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
“I’ve been enjoying experimenting with diamond-shaped lace motifs, and how naturally triangular shawls grow out of them. I like their harmony and balance. This particular variation on the theme was inspired by flowering bulbs — crocus, lily, amaryllis.” – Amy van de Laar
Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
“Aquinnah’s design was inspired by the rocky shores of the Brannock Islands on the northwest end of the Aran archipelago, windswept and lonely. A solitary lighthouse serves as a reminder of the Aran fishing tradition, and of the families who waited for the fishermen to return home.” – Kerry Robb

“When it comes to cables, there’s one that I always revisit: the antler cable. There’s something about it that’s simultaneously timeless and modern, graphic and organic.

This deeply textured watchcap has a twist: the cabled fabric adorning the main body of the hat is mirrored on the faux fold-over brim. The shape of the crown and the classic OXO cable motifs are a nostalgic nod to the woolen workwear of fishermen. Forge is worked from the top down, so you can customize the finished length to form an elfin peak ...

Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
This pair of fingerless gloves is perfect for those of us who spend a lot of time on the go, especially as we need access to the ever-increasing number of touch screens in our lives! The graphic colorwork motifs and natural color scheme were inspired by traditional Cowichan sweaters – iconic designs from Native American tribes in the Pacific No...
Knitting: Cowl
This scarf uses a special Tuck-Stitch pattern (a cousin to Brioche Stitch) to create an extra squishy (and reversible) fabric – perfect for wrapping up in on cold winter days. Holding two strands of Loft together results in an aran-weight yarn that is incredibly light and offers beautiful stitch definition. The length of the scarf has been desi...

Michele’s snow-white cardigan is the type of sweater we love to wrap up in all year round. The garment features an allover cable and lace motif trimmed with deep ribbed hems. The double-breasted shawl collar, rolled sleeve cuffs, lined pockets, and modified drop-shoulder construction create a cozy fit with classic appeal. The sweater’s ribbing ...
Knitting: Pullover
This collection wouldn’t be complete without a classic, oversized pullover. Michele used two strands of Shelter to achieve a warm and cozy garment with a comfortable A-Line silhouette and luxurious ribbed turtleneck. The raglan yoke makes for a comfortable fit and keeps excess fabric from the shoulder area. The garment is worked from the top-do...
Knitting: Mittens
These classic colorwork mittens offer a great canvas for playing with color! We were drawn to a tone-on-tone combination of natural browns and greys, but brighter and more colorful combinations are also enticing. Although 4 colors are required for the pattern, you will only ever be working with 2 colors on any given round. Beginning with a ribb...
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
These pretty armwarmers are a great wardrobe item for layer-lovers! They’re a great way to keep your wrists warm when knitting (or typing) in chillier conditions, too. We think they’re the perfect antidote for when the colorwork bug comes a’biting, and a great project for new knitters to try their hand at stranded knitting.
Knitting: Cardigan
This deceptively simple cocoon cardigan is inspired by Japanese origami. Constructed from two simple rectangles, the relaxed and cozy fitting sweater can be worn right side up or upside down. It’s the ultimate ‘comfort’ sweater and is equally appropriate at home over your pajamas, or out with a pair of slim jeans and a long-sleeved shirt. With ...
Knitting: Scarf
This richly cabled scarf adds a contemporary twist to traditional aran knitting. After casting on along the long side of the rectangle, the scarf is worked horizontally, beginning and ending with a 3×3 ribbed band at the base and top of the scarf. Traditional cable motifs flow directly from the ribbing to create the main fabric of the scarf. Mi...

The simple addition of buttons to this traditional Shetland scarf shape updates it with new versatility. Oslo is a tubular scarf with decorative colorwork motifs at each end and a buttoned seed-stitch hem. Buttons are sewn onto the inside of the tube and inserted through the buttonholes to close the tube; the buttons can also be used to affix e...
Knitting: Earflap Hat
This warm winter hat plays with traditional color motifs using a muted palette of greys and white. The ear flaps, which are picked up and worked last, feature a duplicate stitch motif and I-cord tassels. Add an optional pom-pom on top for a whimsical look, or leave it off for a cleaner silhouette. Stitch gauges between stranded and one-color fa...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This wool shawl is worked in the style of a traditional Hap (with updated construction techniques), worn by the working women of Shetland. Hap shawls were made as utilitarian garments to help shield from the harsh weather conditions of the Northern Scottish Isles. Shetland knitters used the “Old Shale”lace frame as a wonderful canvas for color ...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This hat features a textural lace fabric, a slouchy sillhouette and an intermittent cabled rib adorning the band. The pattern for the main portion of the hat changes its total stitch count as it is worked, which contributes to the overall texture. When measuring your gauge, it is easiest to measure in “Ravenfoot” motifs (four stitches wide on R...

I am constantly inspired by watching Nature’s colors change from season to season – seeing the rich, warm autumn colors fading to myriad shades of grey when Fall begets Winter is a particular favorite. I designed this hat with these seasonal color schemes in mind – each “Season” quite different from the next. The design comes in 4 sizes/styles ...

Stasis is a round-yoke colorwork pullover inspired by the geometric motifs found in blackwork embroidery, often stitched in black thread on a quiet, off-white background. As a pullover, Stasis retains this simplicity, with its line art motif concentrated on the yoke and hems. It is precisely because of this minimal yet striking design that Stas...

Leila’s sweet cowl is a quick project for small amounts of yarn.

This simple scarf is a great pattern for beginning lace knitters, or anyone wanting to practice their knitted-on edging technique.

The Small Version shows a color combination with high...

This hat design features Bavarian Twisted Stitch motifs (produced by knitting stitches through their back loops), which create a wonderful relief-like texture.

This large lace shawl begins in the center and is shaped outward towards the edges with 7 patterned “spokes.” The piece is worked in the round and, with the exception of Charts 5 & 6, has a free round of knitting in between each lace round, making this a well-balanced project between mindless and mindful knitting.

We find the coziness of garter stitch lace irresistable, especially in light, soft wool.

The fabric is knit on both sides (no purling), though the lace patterning is only ...

Twisted stitch ribbing creates a firm, structured fabric as a lovely backdrop to diamonds formed by smocked stitches (a trio of knit, purl, knit is wrapped twice after being worked) and twisted cable crosses. It is possible to work all stitches in the pattern without the use of a cable needle, making these a fun, quick fix for texture fiends.
