Chunky Cove Mitts:

This is a pattern for a pair of quick fingerless mitts, knit out of a chunky yarn. The pattern is a 3-row pattern, 2 of which are stockinette stitch. Every third row will incorporate a pattern of increases and decreases to give it a bit of style! The top cuff can be knit longer to keep the ends of your hands warm, and then folded over when you need to use your fingers. Enjoy knitting and having a quick pair of mitts!

 

 

 

Deep Cove Cowl:

Named after one of my favourite places to hang out, this is a quick and easy cowl with a twist. What is the twist? The stitches are given one full rotation before joining to knit in the round to make a twisted loop.

This time of year, my neck is always cold and this makes a perfect warm cowl to wear, indoors or out. By having the twist, the cowl always seems to fall just right around my neck and the ribbed patterns makes it cozy and warm.

The completed cowl is approximately 25” in circumference and 9” high.

Eyelet Ridge Shawl:

The sample shawl knit with a variegated fingering weight yarn, but it can be knit with any weight from lace to worsted, commercial and handspun.

Knit in fingering weight, use a size 5US or 6US needles. In lace weight, use a size 5US.

Silk Road Wrap:

Silk Road is a pattern that I have been working on for almost two years, mainly when I’ve been travelling. Lace is such an easy thing to pack. I started it in Italy, worked on it in China and Southeast Asia and did my final test knit cruising around South America. It’s gotten around!

This sample is knit with a  fingering-weight yarn. It’s soft, light and diaphanous, perfect for summertime.

There are four different stitch patterns used in the wrap: Garter Stitch, Seed Stitch, Roman Stripe Stitch, and a Florentine Scallop Stitch. Included in the pattern is a description of each of these patterns.

The wrap is sewn together along the top seam to wear like a poncho. It stays in place and floats like a cloud.

Finished, blocked measurements are 60” by 20”
