Stitch Sampler Pullover

Stitch Sampler Pullover

I have a pattern in the Fall 2016 issue of Vogue Knitting and it’s been receiving a lot of attention. The Stitch Sampler Pullover is a relaxed, drop shoulder pullover with a modern feel to it. It has 3/4 sleeves and a wide neck and is worked in fingering weight yarn at a loose gauge for a comfortable drape.

The yarn is Ancient Arts 100% Superwash Merino and it’s just lovely to work with. Caroline read more

Cover Girl—Oversized Cowl

Cover Girl—Oversized Cowl

Well, look at that! I just found out that my design made the cover of Designer Knitting in the UK. In North America, the magazine is known as Vogue Knitting and always has a different cover. My Oversized Cowl is in both publications and it’s a staple that should be in every knitter’s wardrobe. The cowl is knit flat in a sumptuously textured rickrack ribbing pattern. The cowl is generously sized to be a real statement piece and keep you cozy warm when the wind starts blowing. It sports a reverse stockinette stitch rolled read more

Garter Stitch Cap

Garter Stitch Cap

It’s a guy thing! The most recent issue of Knit Simple magazine has a section on knitting for the men in your life and my Garter Stitch Cap design is the first one featured. I love using stripes when designing with garter stitch. They’re just so stripey and textured and provide such a strong visual line. It’s always a surprise to see what the yarn editor at the magazine sends me to work with. I was pleased that it was Koigu Kersti Merino Crepe because … those colours—a gradient of teal! read more

Diagonal Eyelet Scarf

Diagonal Eyelet Scarf

Looking for some light and lacy summer knitting?  I have a design in the spring/summer issue of Noro Knitting Magazine which was released earlier this month. The Diagonal Eyelet Scarf was originally inspired by the ceinture fléchée, a part of the French Canadian voyageurs’ traditional costume. My fellow Canadians, do you remember learning about this in social studies in school? The scarf is knit in Kibou, a cotton/wool/silk blend which is part of the Noro family and comes in scrumptious colours. Diagonal Eyelet Scarf Publication: Noro Knitting Magazine, Spring/Summer 2015 read more

Short-Row Stripes Blanket

Short-Row Stripes Blanket

I love how short rows can create undulating lines when worked in stripes; it’s fun to design using short rows. I have a blanket pattern in the spring issue of Knit Simple that makes great use out of short rows. The Short Rows Stripes Blanket is worked in six analagous colours in light and dark tones with a seventh contrasting colour that pops. While there are a lot of colours, only one colour is used at a time. Bonus, while working the applied i-cord edging it’s really easy to hide all the ends inside the i-cord read more

Mock Cable Scarf

Mock Cable Scarf

  Sixth and Spring books and Cascade Yarns published another book in their series of 60 Quick books last month, called 60 Quick Luxury Knits. I have a design in it! The Mock Cable Scarf creates the visual illusion that there is a cable running up its length. Instead it’s worked in a carefully planned juxtaposition of yarnovers, decreases and ribbing to produce the gracefully arcing lines. It calls for Venezia Worsted, which is a wool silk blend that was lovely to work with. It felt soft and silk always accepts colour so well. read more

Fisherman’s Rib Cable Tutorial

Fisherman’s Rib Cable Tutorial

The Cable Rib Hat & Wristers in the Zealana Rimu DK booket feature an interesting cable stitch I developed on my own since I couldn’t find anything like it in my stitch dictionaries. It has a tricky maneuver that I haven’t seen in a pattern so here’s the tutorial.  You need two cable needles to accomplish the cable crossing. While a little fiddly, it’s so worth it and there’s only two rows of cable crossing on the  Cable Rib Hat and Wristers in the Zealana booklet. First, the definition of the cable read more

Hats and Mitts

Hats and Mitts

It’s still a great thrill to find my pattern between the pages of Vogue Knitting. I’m actually still waiting for my contributor’s copy of the magazine but there are already a few finished projects on Ravelry. My design is the slouchy hat in the Yoga story. Photos © SoHo Publishing I alternated bands of fisherman’s rib with twisted rib. The Fisherman’s rib looks particularly great when the hat is stretched a bit on the head because the ribbing opens up and contrasts even more with the tighter twisted rib. For me it evokes the read more
