Knitting: Coffee / Tea Pot
What is better than tea with a good friend? And a knitting designer friend at that! One of my best friends, and as it happens, also my knitting mentor, Anna Maltz, is one of those friends you want to have tea with. Anna is the creator of the Marlisle technique – where two strands of yarn magically become three colours and you never need to worr...
Knitting: Pullover
This is two patterns in one! The Karusell sweater for older kids (3 to 10 years) and Karusellita (Newborn to 2 years) for the smaller children.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
Small children who refuse to wear mittens of any kind – sound familiar? I realised one day my son Gabriel would probably use half mittens if he had any (especially since I prefer those myself before the real cold kicks in). Half mittens are a great step between seasons - no matter the age!
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
During a lunar eclipse, you see the Earth’s shadow creeping across the moon’s face. First the shadow appears as a dark lens, until the it completely covers the moon. Then the shadow on the moon’s face can suddenly change: instead of dark, it appears red - a Blood Moon.
Knitting: Sweater - Other
Inside the Box is a summer tee where the front has an intriguing stitch pattern and the back has the va-va-voom-factor. The front features a repetitive graphic pattern of circles that fit nicely inside squares (that is easy to memorise while knitting). Two cables frame the front pattern panel. The sassier back, with a deep opening and many smal...

Elliot is a cosy unisex child cardigan that starts with a bias bottom worked in 2 pieces of garter stitch with eyelet rows for an entertaining construction. From the bottom piece you pick up stitches and work the rest from the bottom-up. Knitted in organic, soft, smooth and lovely hand-dyed merino, this will be a lovely treat for any baby (and ...

Knitting: Cardigan
Ravelry and the internet community at large have provided me with a lot of amazing free patterns over the years, patterns that have allowed me to continue to learn and grow as a knitter. I want to give something back, so here is the Elliot newborn size free for anyone to knit. Larger sizes can be bought in my Ravelry shop. The newborn size is w...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Everybody’s idea of a perfect hat is different. Mine is a tight-fitting cloche or beanie, and if it has a matching shawl and mittens – even better! This, my first ever hat construction, also turns out to be my favourite hat so far. What’s not to love about the classic cables paired with spiral twists that go around the hat in a lovely swirl, li...
Knitting: Mittens
A set of cables and swirls of ice cream to top it off - that’s the Llamalicious mittens in a nutshell. Knitted in organic llama yarn they are soft, warm and cosy in every way. The pattern is symmetrical and each mitten a mirror of the other. The instructions are written for left and right hand, but it’s up to you which way you prefer the swirls...
Knitting: Cardigan
This is a simple, entertaining and playful baby sweater in seven sizes ranging from newborn to three years old. It is worked from the bottom-up, starting with the lower body and moving on to the sleeves first – saving the fun of the yoke for last.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
I love shawls in unexpected shapes. This one falls in between a shawl, a wrap and a scarf, meaning you can use it in many ways! The lacy character makes it look lovely over a dress for a party or even a wedding, but will look just as fab around your neck on a chilly autumn morning.
Knitting: Cardigan
Elliot is a cosy unisex baby cardigan that starts with a bias bottom worked in 2 pieces of garter stitch with eyelet rows for an entertaining construction. From the bottom piece you pick up stitches and work the rest from the bottom-up.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
The Elegant Ellen shawl is worked from the top-down using two colours of fingering weight yarn. I designed this shawl as a birthday gift for my friend Ellen’s 50th birthday. She is an accomplished and very elegant businesswoman, often dressed in high-end suits for important international meetings - often paired with Doc Martens boots. Just like...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This shawl is based on a variation of the stitch pattern I made for the Aptenodytes cardigan, a collaboration with Anna Maltz, published in the “Penguin” collection. It uses a combination of garter stitch, eyelet rows and daisy stitch. Daisy stitches take a little time to work (and can be almost frustrating), but I definitely think the effort i...

Small clutch purse - a perfect gift for a good friend! Ideal for carrying currencies when abroad or just a favourite lipstick or jewelry.
Knitting: Electronics Cozy
Here is a simple pattern of a sleeve that will fit most netbooks and pads, such as the iPad. The sleeve is finished with a button and a simple crochet hook.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
This is a very simple pattern for fingerless mittens. It was made for a man, size M hands circa. Use bigger needles for bigger sizes, they would normally be a bit big for females. But playing with needles and gauges you can still find the right fit. I added a little touch to the finished result with a small detail with a button, just to finish ...
