Knitting: Scarf
Two-colour brioche is a marvellous technique. It creates a lovely, squishy texture that is comforable to wear and it can be used to create quite intricate geometric patterns.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
These fingerless gloves are knitted flat and in garter stitch. They are shaped with short rows around a point at the outer wrist, the thumb is created one half at a time (with a short knitted CO and a BO). The flower pattern is done in intarsia technique. The project starts with a provisional cast on and finishes with grafting in garter stitch....
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
Fingerless gloves are my favorite accessory – there are so many varieties and ways to construct them.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves

One edge of the row is the thumb and the mitt shaped around it in short rows. The flower pattern is done in intarsia technique. The piece starts wit...
Knitting: Cowl
Two-colour brioche is a marvellous technique. It creates a lovely, squishy texture that is really comforable to wear. Plus, it can be used to create quite intricate geometric patterns.
Knitting: Coaster, Potholder
During the last months my knitting inspiration was quite low. All bigger project didn’t seem appealing to me, so I started (again) playing around with colorful cotton and small motifs. And here’s what I came up with. A knitting pattern for a hexagonal potholder with a flower motif. It starts with a provisional CO, is knitted in short row wedges...
Knitting: Doily
Here is the pattern for a potholder or doily in a flower shape. I called it windrose, because the petals look a bit like the points of a compass.
Knitting: Poncho
I love brioche knitting because it creates a wonderfully fluffy fabric. In two colors it can also get gorgeous geometric patterns. I especially love the stitch used here because it creates a gorgeous lattice or fence effect. And that effect is where the name comes from – Zaunkönig (the German name of the eurasian wren) literally means king of t...
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
It’s always fun to knit fingerless gloves - especially if the construction is a bit out of the ordinary. This usually leads to special patterns that are particularly attractive when used with self-striping yarn. Plus it may lead to mitts, where you only have to weave in two ends per mitt – one of my personal obsessions :)
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
I’ve always wanted to create a half-circle(-ish) shawl in brioche, but it took me a while to think of a pattern with the appropriate number of increases.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
I love fingerless gloves. They are my favorite accessory – and knitting project. They are fun to knit and wear, and on top of that they are so versatile – especially in terms of construction, which shows off nicely, if you use variegated or self-striping yarn.
Knitting: Cowl
Two-colour brioche is a lovely way to combine colors to intricate geometric patterns. This cowl is knitted in the round with diamond shapes in a lattice pattern.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
As far as I am concerned, you can’t have too many pairs of fingerless gloves. They are my favorite accessory (and knitting project) because they are so versatile - especially in terms of construction. Which leads to beautiful patterns if you’re using variegated or self-striping yarn.
Knitting: Potholder
It’s always interesting to see, what can be done in garter stitch :) Here is the pattern for a flower-shaped potholder, hotpad or coaster.
Knitting: Potholder
Here is a pattern for a circular potholder with a flower motif – an idea that I’ve had for quite a while. It starts with a provisional CO, is knitted in short row wedges and finished with grafting in garter stitch.
Knitting: Scarf
A while ago, I became quite obsessed with two-coluor brioche – so obsessed that I even ventured far out of my colour comfort zone.
Knitting: Scarf
Ever since I knitted a brioche-lace combination for my Mum (see Luftbläschen Scarf) I wanted to do another project that incorporated both techniques.

Knitting: Scarf
This design evolved from beautiful, silky yarn (in lace weight) together with the idea to knit something with a bit more texture. After a few tries and errors, this led to a combination of brioche and lace stitches (eyelets). The finished scarf is is both elegant and squishy. Furthermore it has a reversible lace pattern that looks the same on b...
Knitting: Potholder
Christmas is the time to decorate the space around you with pretty things. And as a knitter, in the run-up to Christmas I like to knit decorations. And if these decorations are also useful, it’s even better.
Knitting: Scarf
I like to experiment with my knitting. At the same time I think limitations lead to (more) creative solutions and designs. One of my preferred limitations is that I do not like to cut my yarn before I’ve completely finished a knitted piece. So when I saw a picture of knitted rectangular “holes” somewhere on the internet, I resolved to find a wa...
Knitting: Hanging Ornament
Now that we’re approaching Christmas, star decorations are starting to be seen again. To get into the right mood, I tried to a knit small 3-dimensional star. And once I finished one, I couldn’t stop and did quite a few more - because they really look cute and it’s fun knitting them.
Knitting: Cowl
I like to experiment with my knitting and to combine techniques. For this cowl I wanted to try out short rows in combination with two color brioche. The result is a comfortable piece with a squishy texture that is perfect for autumn and winter.

I like to experiment with short rows and their effects on variegated yarn. With this piece I wanted to explore three-dimensional elements. The result was a stylish cowl with an organic look.
Knitting: Cowl
Recently, I experimented a lot with a combination of intarsia technique and short rows. I did like the resulting patterns so I wanted to try it out on a cowl as well - and this time with an interesting black and white contrast. So, if you like bold geometric patterns, this cowl is for you. It is knitted all in garter stitch with two skeins or b...
Knitting: Scarf
L’esprit de l’escalier was designed in July 2017 after I paid a visit to the Rohrspatz & Wollmeise store in Pfaffenhofen/Ilm while I stayed with a friend in Bavaria.

Treat yourself with this gorgeous, lightweight scarf or wrap to wear in spring and summer. Short rows alternated with lace rows are used to create a light wavy pattern with a bubbly effect. It’s great to use yarn with a long color gradient, but it works as well with a solid color.

Add a sparkle of color to your spring outfit with this light and playful scarf. It is easy to knit because it consists of garter stitch short rows alternated with a lace pattern. As with nearly all short row patterns, it’s great to show off your variegated yarn.
