Knitting: Cowl
I recently stumbled on a pattern containing a technique for knitting a heel-less sock that first appeared in the 1938 edition of Mary Thomas’ Knitting Book. It involves knitting a staggered 3x3 rib, such that the fabric biases to form a helical structure. While knitting up my new socks it occurred to me that this would also be a great technique...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Rionnag (’star’ in Scottish Gaelic) is a colorwork hat using classic Sheltand motifs. With four colors total and only two colors per row, Rionnag would make a good intermediate colorwork project. Tukuwool Fingering makes a hat that is lightweight and warm; substitute another woolen-spun yarn to get the same effect.
Knitting: Tee
Land Girls meets the high desert in this slightly vintage-inspired tee with a simple 4-row lace pattern reminiscent of sagebrush. Made it in a wool/ silk blend as shown it’s a perfect transitional-weather layering piece. Or make it in linen-blend such as Knitpicks Lindy Chain for a warm-weather tee.
Knitting: Sleeveless Top
This design is one of the 8 modern, minimalist patterns featured in our digital publication STRIPES.
Knitting: Cowl
Now updated with a second size! Rionnag (’star’ in Gaelic) is a lovely lightweight cowl featuring classic Shetland colorwork motifs. Perfect for cooler Spring days, or tuck it into a coat for those colder days. Worked in four colors with only two colors used per row, this would make a great project if you’re looking to try allover colorwork.
Knitting: Cowl
Newly updated! A quick-to-knit cowl featuring gansey motifs with a simple garter stitch border.
Knitting: Cardigan
Nazar, or evil eye, motifs are seen as decorations all over Turkey and elsewhere. This cardigan takes its inspiration from the small evil eye beads, or nazar boncu, that are commonly pinned to children’s clothing as protection from negative energy.
Knitting: Cardigan
Set-in sleeve cardigan with a flattering scoop neckline and a band of tulips running along the bottom and sleeves. Gentle waist shaping provides a slightly tailored look. Perfect for winter with a pencil skirt (in leather, perhaps?) and boots, it will take you into spring worn over a cute vintage dress. The tulip motif was inspired by the color...
Knitting: Cowl
A lightweight, closer fitting cowl to ward off Spring chills. Worked in a quick to knit textured pattern, this cowl is reversible - wear it upside down or inside out! I designed this cowl to use some yarn I bought from a local farm, so use handspun or local yarn - or substitute any fingering weight yarn. To get a similar effect to the sample, t...
