Zick Zack Fingerless Mitts

Using slip stitches and cables, the diagonal weave pattern in these mitts has the perfect texture and density to keep out the chill. This is a great pattern to try out cabling without a cable needle.




Wheat Chain Socks

I found this lace pattern in a Japanese stitch dictionary and just had to use it in a pair of socks! The pattern reminded me of a wheat chain link bracelet design. When worked in a neutral or dark-color yarn and in the larger size, it would make a great pair of men’s socks. These socks are worked toe-up with a reverse heel-flap heel and a center-sole gusset. The gusset placement allows the sock to fit more snugly at the arch than traditionally constructed socks. To ensure a good fit, accurate measurement is needed before starting the gusset increase section.



Quatrefoil Shawl

This shawl does not have the traditional Estonian shape of a rectangle with a separately sewn-on lace edging but is in the more modern top-down triangle style, with a lace edging knitted as part of the shawl. Nupps and star stitches are used in abundance, giving the knitter lots of opportunities to practice these techniques! Knitting with fine-gauge yarn on larger-than-typical needles allows the finished lace to be airy and show the nupps to good advantage.




Light the Torches Socks

This stitch pattern reminded me of torches, hence the name of these socks. Since only one color is used at a time, the stitch pattern looks more difficult than it is. Cable stitches mixed in with the slipped stitches make for an interesting knit. Worked toe-up with a round toe and afterthought heels, these socks are a great use of slightly variegated yarns that contrast well with each other.

Written and charted directions included.



Freckled Rib Socks

The rib pattern in these socks make for a pair of very squishy socks! The ribbing pattern is easy to work, but makes for a less boring knit than just ‘plain rib’. They have a good bit of stretch as well. Knit cuff down with a sole side gusset, directions for two sizes are included.

Finished Measurements:
7 (8)” cuff and foot circumference, 5” cuff height. To fit 8″ (9″) foot circumference.



Tisket Tasket Entrelac Baskets

This sweet set of three baskets is the perfect project for learning entrelac knitting! They are felted after knitting, so any number of tension woes are completely hidden. Worked in vibrant colors, they are the perfect household accessory for Spring! Use them to hold any trinkets you need rounded up. Bonus: they can store nested inside each other!


One skein of Cascade 220 in each of three colors is enough yardage to make all three baskets.

Small: 4” diameter
Medium: 5.5” diameter
Large: 8” diameter


Thrumming E-book

Want to know more about thrumming? You’ve come to the right place! This ebook is chock full of information about thrumming – from the history of the craft to how to make and use thrums in your knitting. Two of my thrummed knitting patterns are also included!

Buying the ebook saves you $1 off buying both patterns separately, and you get added information to boot!



Arctic Muff and Cowl

Keep the winter chill away with this thrummed cowl and muff set! Both are easy to knit, giving you a perfect project to try out thrumming. The muff will keep your hands nice and toasty, while the fitted cowl will keep your neck warm. Buttons add a bit of interest, as well as allowing you to cinch the cowl up for those extra cold days. The cowl can also be worn as ear warmers!





Thrummed Mittens

This is my pattern for thrummed mittens that I use in my class. While not a substitute for taking a class with me, it is an excellent pattern for trying out thrumming! The mitten uses an afterthought thumb, making it easy for advanced beginners to knit.





Cabled Ear Warmer

I wear my hair in ponytails and buns quite often, even in winter, and hats don’t tend to work very well when my hair is up. Ear warmers to the rescue! This super soft ear warmer can keep my ears warm more comfortably when my hair is up. A pom-pom adds a little extra flair. An added bonus is that it only requires one 50g skein of a luxury sport-weight yarn!




Beginner’s Fair Isle Hat
This is the hat pattern used in my Beginner Fair Isle class. Now you can buy the pattern by itself!

While it won’t be a substitute for taking my class with me, it is a nice, easy pattern for practicing your stranded knitting techniques. 🙂




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’!

scarf-back-neckTwo sizes included: 26” long from neck and 32” long from neck.

Chart and written directions included.







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.



May Day Flower Socks

photoCuff down socks, started with a dainty picot cast on. Lace on cuff, with a single lace motif on instep. Short Row heels and toes.

Pattern includes both charts and written lace directions.

Child size fits 6-7 inch circumference
Adult size fits 8-9 inch circumference



Leaf & Trellis Socks


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 ShawlSilicon 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!

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 Wool of the Andes Worsted 6, (6, 7) skeins.  Or similar worsted weight yarn.
Needles: US 5 and US6





Winding Roads Aran Hat

Master Knitter Level 3 Aran hat Master Knitter Level 3 Aran hat







This hat was originally designed and knit as my TKGA Master Knitter level 3 hat project. The brim is knit side-to-side, with stitches picked up to then knit the body in the round. Cables move up the hat to intertwine at the crown. The hat is designed to fit in a slouchy beret style.

To fit 21″ head circumference.

Yarn:  About 500 yards worsted weight wool yarn.
Needles:  US 6



Beginner’s Socks Tutorial Pattern

This is my Beginner’s Sock pattern, but with a lot of extra hand-holding!  I’ll walk you through your first pair of socks.  Still not as good as an in-person class with me, but quite a bit more helpful than a plain pattern!

Yarn: worsted weight wool blend yarn.
Needles:  US 6



Not So Beginner’s Socks

sock photoKnitted my Beginner’s Socks and ready to move on to fingering weight yarn and knit some ‘real’ socks? Then this pattern is for you! I’ll still walk you through each step, just in case, but I’m sure you’re ready to knit some socks you can actually wear in shoes!

This pattern is for a Women’s/Adult Medium pair of socks, fitting about an 8 inch circumference foot.

Yarn: Fingering weight sock yarn.
Needles:  US 2



Autumn Wheat Socks

These socks were inspired by the yarn – FibroFibers Archie in the colorway Maize (now discontinued). (Shown below – variegated version.)  When I found this stitch pattern I knew it would be the perfect complement to the yarn!

Cuff down socks with a textured pattern knit using increases, decreases, and cluster stitches.  Great pattern for variegated yarns that tend to pool!

Both charts and written directions are included.







William’s Socks – Expanded (with adult and children’s sizes included)

Child to adult size socks, with ribbing throughout to aid in fitting a wide range of widths, and providing some stretch in the length as well. The bottom of the heel is reinforced for padding and durability.

Two child versions are provided—one for a heavier weight fingering yarn and one for a thinner weight fingering yarn.

Two adult sizes are also included— a women’s and a men’s version.
