Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This pattern is named for the little town across the lake from where I live. The original version of this pattern was written for worsted weight yarn, but I’ve added instructions for bulky weight yarn to make a super quick knit.
Knitting: Wall Hanging
This wall hanging combines knitting and weaving techniques for a unique project that looks like macrame, but is actually an easy approachable project for knitters! Named after Iona’s Beach on Lake Superior’s shore in northern Minnesota, the chunky weaving in this pattern reminds me of the pink pebbles at this beach.
Knitting: Wall Hanging
I love the look of macrame and woven wall hangings, and when I discovered the Loop Stitch in knitting, I knew it’d be perfect for wall decor! I am influenced by Scandinavian designs (simple, with lots of layered textures), and I love the textured, boho vibe this stitch gives. This pattern is named after a cute little nearby town called Scandia.
Knitting: Cup / Mug
I absolutely hate wasting things, whether it’s leftover yarn, or those cardboard coffee sleeves you’re given on your cup of to-go coffee. Enter the knit coffee cozy! These make a fun little gift, stocking stuffer, gift card holder, or small item for your craft market booth.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Named for the little town across the lake from where I live, the Birchwood Beanie is my take on that popular store-bought acrylic hat that everyone wears.

Being near water, whether the Pacific Ocean
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
SEASPRAY: “The water thrown into the air when waves break on the shore.” Being near water, whether the Pacific Ocean from the California coast, or the lakes of Minnesota, has always brought me peace.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This hat features a unique texture created by holding two different yarns double. Featuring a simple ribbed stitch, the addition of slub fingering weight yarn makes it special! This pattern is written for 5 sizes (baby, toddler, child, teen/adult, adult large).

“Real leaders lead with love.” - Cleo Wade
Knitting: Cowl
“Spindrift”: spray blown from the crests of waves by the wind. This pattern works up quickly and the faux cables remind me of waves. Easy to knit, comfy to wear!
Knitting: Cowl
“LOPPET”: a race which occurs over a varied terrain. This pattern gets its name from the varied textures of bobbles and yarn held double.
Knitting: Baby Blanket
“Seachange”: a profound or notable transformation. The pattern is named after the amazing change a baby brings into all the lives of people around it; and in the pattern, each time a new color is added, the blanket changes and creates a nice marled effect.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This pattern download includes two separate documents: one for Super Bulky (weight 6) yarn, and one for Bulky/Chunky (weight 5) yarn. This pattern is written for baby, child, and adult sizes.
Knitting: Electronics Cozy
“Do more things that make you forget to check your phone”
Knitting: Pet Clothing
I created my original cowl pattern (the human version) as a way to use up scraps of yarn leftover from making hats. I just had to create a cute pet cowl to coordinate! I teamed up with my friends at Bright & Pip to bring you the pet version.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
The lattice cables filled with seed stitch create a unique texture in this hat - this is not your basic cable beanie! The cables are created using left- and right-twisted stitches no cable needle needed! The name comes from the North Loop neighborhood in Minneapolis, where my husband and I end up on most of our date nights.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
I created this pattern as a way to use up scraps of yarn leftover from making other hats. The variegated yarn from three colorways of your choice creates a beautiful ombre effect, inspired by my love of sunrises. Feel free to adjust the colorwork in the rows of the pattern to account for the amount of yarn you have of each color!

Named after the honeysuckle plant that grows on a lattice, this simple lattice cable hat works up quickly with super bulky wool. The cables are created with left and right twist stitches. No cable needle needed!
