I love all  your patterns and they are a joy to knit—they are beautiful and classic patterns

The pattern is so well written, love it!

Great pattern … that is fun and easy to make. Have already purchased yarn for 2 more and have inspired others in my knitting group to make it, too.

Holli is one of the best instructors in our solar system.

I love so many of the patterns that are featured on your website.

Inspiration for Philodendron

Teen television dramas are one of my guilty pleasures. I also love watching period dramas, in part for the costumes and the knitwear designs they inspire. Reign, a show that focuses on Mary, Queen of Scots’ marriage to the Dauphin of France, offers the best of both of my TV watching passions.

Class

Tip Toe Up Socks

October 20, 27 + November 3, 2021

Wednesdays, 2:30 - 4:30pm Mountain Time

Tip Toe Up Socks

This toe-up sock class is a skill building opportunity to knit socks with completely replaceable heels and toes. Over three weeks we’ll tackle the beautifully invisible Turkish cast-on, Holli’s favourite increases, placeholder stitches for the heel, a stretchy sewn bind-off with no sewing, opening a large hole in your sock for the heel, and grafting on the needles.

Take this opportunity to learn a “new-to-you” technique for working in the round: using two circular needles, or one long circular needle for the Magic Loop technique or double pointed needles. Or feel free to use needles that you’re most familiar with while learning the other new skills.

This online workshop is presented in three sessions, each 2 hours long, over three weeks.

Pattern

Striped cardigan with saddle shoulders and deep mock ribbed cuffs and hem.

Lansbury Cardigan

Perfect execution elevates this tweed cardigan from classic to icon. Saddle shoulders, subtle waist shaping, a wide purl column at the back and faux seams create a flawless tailored silhouette—all without any sewing. Smart stripes are the final touch to make this a standout piece.

Turkish Cast On

My favourite cast on for toe up socks is a Turkish Cast On. It’s as simple as winding the yarn around your needles and there’s no long tail or scrap yarn to contend with. The photo tuturial that follows walks you through it, step by step.
