Knitting: Pullover
This sweater is a lot of fun to knit! It begins by knitting the cable panel sideways, then joining the two ends together to make a ring. The lower and upper bodies are picked up and knit from either side of the cable panel. There’s a little waist shaping for a flattering fit, and once the cable band is joined, it’s completely seamless!

This sassy tunic is knitted in a bulky weight yarn for extra core warmth. Seriously, this is so warm, I’m glad it has short sleeves!
Knitting: Cardigan
I was inspired to design this cardigan many, many years ago when I was knitting another lace cardigan. When the body was finished, before sewing in the sleeves I tried it on as a vest, and was wearing a striped shirt underneath. I loved the result! That sweater completed with its intended sleeves, but THIS sweater was on my mind ever since! I’m...

Knitting: Pullover
The Cascading Yoke pattern was inspired by meandering rivers and the myriad little waterfalls and streams that branch off of them. My favorite aspect of this sweater is the transition between the yoke pattern and the ribbing—how the smaller branches of the river break off into smaller, more calm ribs (streams).
