Fiddleback Cowl and Hat

cowl-photo hat-photoFiddleback wood, or Flame Maple, is a beautiful wood grain often used to make fiddles and guitars.  When I came across this particular cable pattern it reminded me of the lovely undulating wood grain of the back of a fiddle.  This wide cowl starts with a short section of rib which flows right into the cabled pattern.  While not technically reversible, the wrong side of the fabric is attractive in its own way.  Worked in a fingering weight yarn, the cowl has a nice drape and would be a warm and fashionable way to keep the winter chill away, while the matching hat is worked in a watchcap style and will do nicely keeping your ears warm.

Both charts and written directions are included.

Flare and Square

scarf-cropThis stylish and unusual scarf is easier to knit than it looks! The ‘flare’ is created by a simple and easy to memorize lace pattern that leads into ribbing for the body of the scarf. Simple short rows are used to create a ‘square’ neckline at the top, and the ‘flare’ is then repeated in reverse at the end.
The square shape at the neck ensures the scarf will stay put over or under a coat.
Don’t let winter winds leave you chilled— beat those winter winds ‘Flare and Square’!

Turritella Socks

DSC05051edit2This design was inspired by the tightly coiled cone shaped shells of the Turritella genus of sea snails. The spiral lace pattern on these socks, which looks much more complicated than it is, has a very tight bias which twists down the leg.

Both charts and written directions are included.

May 2015 Blue Moon Fiber Arts Rockin’ Sock Club pattern.

These socks are knit from the cuff down.

Graphite Socks

socksI fell in love with this slipped stitch pattern after using it for a swatch in level 3 of the Master Hand Knitter program, and I thought it would be perfect on a pair of socks.

The honeycomb lattice look (and the colors) reminds me of the chemical structure of the layers of graphite. Since it is a slipped stitch pattern, you work with only one color per row – so it looks much more complicated than it actually is!

These socks are knit from the toe up with a round toe and an afterthought heel.

Leaf & Trellis Socks

DSC05047edit

The focal point of these socks is the intricate leaf lace featured down the center front and back of the socks. The leaves are framed nicely by a ‘trellis’ of small cables on either side. These socks are knit from the cuff down, and are constructed with a standard flap and gusset heel and a wedge toe.

Both charts and written lace/cable directions are included.

Moissanite Shawl

Moissanite Shawl

Silicon Carbide, or Moissanite, is a rare natural mineral. It is almost as hard as diamonds, and has a fiery brilliance—so it is sometimes used as a diamond gemstone substitute. I found it a fitting name for this shawl made with several different diamond motifs.

The shawl is knit from the top down with a center spine diamond panel and gradually changing diamond lace on the sides. It is designed as more than a triangle to sit snug upon the shoulders.

Size is customizable – I designed the lace patterns so that any number of repeats of the individual motifs can be knit.

Both charts AND written lace directions are included.

At least 1000 yards of fingering weight yarn will be needed. More will be needed if you add more repeats to any of the lace sections.

Sizes: Multiple (Sample shown  is 30″ tall and 52″ wide)
Yarn: Fingering weight yarn, at least 1000 yards.
Needles: US 6 (4.0mm)

Playbook Sweater Vest

This vest was originally designed as my TKGA Master Knitter Level 2 vest.  I have expanded that pattern and added more sizes.  I knitted the vest for my son, who loves to watch football, hence the more masculine ‘playbook’ name rather than the more traditional ‘hugs and kisses’ that the cables evoke.  The pattern will work just as well for girls as well as boys, however!

Playbook Sweater Vest

Knit flat in pieces from the bottom up, the neckline and armhole ribbing are knit afterwards, with the sides seamed.

Sizes: Child Small/6, (Medium/10, Large/14)
Yarn: Knit Picks Merino Style 5, (5, 6) skeins.  Or similar DK weight yarn.
Needles: US 5 and US6

Autumn Wheat Socks
