Knitting: Scarf
Some time ago, someone wrote to me and requested that I consider authoring a book on double-knit lettering, specifically lettering that uses two-pattern charts.

Shortly after I published my Felis Hattus pattern, a colleague got in touch with me to see if I’d be interested in contributing a couple of “craftivism” related patterns to a new book she was planning. I got thinking about other concepts and this one came up. The book offer didn’t pan out, but the concept was such a good one that I decided to m...
Knitting: Hats - Other
This hat uses double-knitting in a unique way, to create a single-layer fabric reminiscent of intarsia in the round (but without the same headaches that can come with that technique).

Knitting: Cowl
This deceptively simple pattern is a great introduction to double-knitting for those who haven’t tried it before. Each repeat of the pattern has only 2 color changes, so there’s very little to keep track of as you work. The color changes move subtly to trace a pattern of sine waves running up the cowl’s sides. Each side has the same motif, but ...

Knitting: Cowl
With this stunning double knit cowl, you can drape your neck with the statuesque beauty of trees in Winter. This is truly a double-duty project; fully reversible, you can evoke the beauty of day or night, depending on which side you wear out. And knit in our wonderfully soft BFL/silk blend, you will have a project with the warmth of wool and th...

Knitting: Scarf
This is a keyhole scarf with a motif of falling maple leaves done in double-knitting down the middle, and a short-row double-stranded ruffle on the sides.
Knitting: Cowl, Cuffs, Headband
This pattern was originally designed for inclusion in my Craftsy class entitled “Adventures in Double-Knitting”. I ended up recharting it without the grapes for the class, but since I showed it with the grapes in the intro video, people have been clamoring for me to release the version with the grapes. So I’ve reworked the charts in a similar f...
Knitting: Scarf
This is the first and lowest-resolution of my “Parallax” series of double-knit accoutrements, which are based on the warped-checkerboard style used by some Op-Art artists in the 1960s. This type of motif has been used often in weaving but not very much, as far as I have found, in knitting -- probably due to the long floats and/or complex twisti...

This pattern has been replaced in the 2018 revision of Extreme Double-knitting with a pattern called Sierpinski L5. Because this is still a good pattern and is no longer included in a book, I have re-released it as a standalone pattern.

Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This hat was originally published in the online magazine Twist Collective, then revised and republished in the original version of Extreme Double-knitting. Due to a contract dispute (and a number of other reasons), I opted to completely redesign the hat for the 2018 revision of Extreme Double-knitting.
Knitting: Scarf
This was the very first double-knitting project I designed and started knitting. It was also the first pattern I released, and it has been available for free on Ravelry ever since. I credit that fact partially for its popularity, but I’d like to think that the pattern’s simplicity and classic look is also responsible. Corvus is a very elegant a...
