Scrubbing Nubbles

FREE PATTERN!

I had the idea (perhaps inspired by mopping the floor) that I should come up with a textured stitch that would be useful as a washcloth, dishcloth, or re-usable mop pad. It came out so pretty that I wanted to share.

Carved Lines Armwarmers


carved_lines4_1200Inspired by the sinuous shapes that skiers and snowboarders leave in the snow as they carve down the mountain, the Carved Lines armwarmers are meant to close the gap between your jacket and your gloves, keeping the snow off your wrists and keeping you out on the slopes longer! The slipknot cast-on and sewn bind-off are stretchy without being floppy, giving neat finished edges to your work.

Acres Wild Hat

acres_wild1Acres Wild is a hat with cabled slip stitches that looks more complicated than it really is. The quilted stitch pattern breaks up pooling in variegated yarn, and continues up into the crown to form a five-pointed star.

Sibling Socks

FREE PATTERN!

This snugly-fitting ribbed sock design grew from a shortage of fine-gauge sock patterns. I was working with Trekking XXL to make a pair of socks, and when I swatched on size 0 needles, I got an gauge of 45 stitches to 4 inches...

Cakewalk Socks

FREE PATTERN!

Grassy Sidewalk SockThese simple socks are a piece of cake to knit - thus the name! They fit snugly thanks to the ribs, and would make a great gift for anyone. The ribbing continues down the back of the heel flap, and there’s no break in the purl ‘gutter’ between the leg and the foot of the sock.

Choppy Seas Socks

FREE PATTERN!

choppy-wornThese textured socks are reminiscent of the ocean on a stormy day, and the stitch pattern rolls and breaks like choppy waves. The darkening sky is represented in the contrasting toes, heels, and cuffs. Knit with Patons Kroy Sock over 60 stitches on US2/2.75mm needles, it works up fairly quickly.

Highwayman
Armwarmers

FREE PATTERN!

I was asked to design “manly black armwarmers” to wear while riding a motorcycle that would close the gap between his leather jacket and his gloves. Cables were the first thing that came to mind...
