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.

Valentine’s Day is coming soon :heart:.
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 in the middle of November, Christmas 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.

Knitting: Cowl
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.
Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
Combine your favorite colors to create a very special piece that will keep you warm in winter as well as in summer nights. It’s a rectangular scarf or wrap with a bold graphic pattern of short rows and intarsia. Since it’s knitted all in garter stitch it’s snug and comfy.
Knitting: Scarf
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.
Knitting: Cowl
Here’s a new pattern for a knitted cowl with a wavy intarsia pattern in shape of a sinus curve. It’s all in garter stitch and therefore very easy to knit.
Knitting: Scarf
