The Sophie Sweater: A New Free Kids’ Pattern

With both shame and pride, this is one of those completely spontaneous projects that arose from a KAL. I’ve gotten much better at knitting only my new designs and planned projects, but when I saw pictures of the Knit Collage Fall KAL for 2019 floating around on Instagram, I really could not help myself. I…

Steeking Tutorial for Hyphenated

To purchase the Hyphenated knitting pattern on Ravelry, click here. For many–if not most–knitters, the idea of steeking evokes feelings of trepidation, anxiety and discomfort. It is only natural to feel this way, given that steeking involves slicing up your hard-earned knitted garment. Attempting it willy nilly with no plan would be downright scary, which…

To purchase the Hyphenated sweater pattern on Ravelry, click here. I am quite proud of my newest knitting pattern. Hyphenated is my favorite design that I have created thus far, and it is also among my favorite sweaters that I have knit, ever. I knit two samples for this design. The sample shown here is…

Isn’t Alli’s rainbow Scrappy V just amazing?! My favorite and most used yarn weight is, without a doubt, sock yarn. After wrapping up a shawl, sweater, pair of socks or some other fingering weight project, I am known to place my leftover balls of yarn on a shelf. Each day I walk by said shelf…

Waning Lace: My New Spring Design

The Waning Lace pattern can be purchased from my Ravelry store here. With cool spring days in mind, I started playing around with the idea of a fading lace yoke sweater back in December of last year. When jumping to my closet, time and time again I select sweaters that are on the lighter side…

Another New Hat Pattern: Murakami

The Murakami hat pattern can be purchased from my Ravelry store here. If you’re a fan of the magical realism genre in literature (and art), then you are likely no stranger to the works of Haruki Murakami. Born in Kyoto, Japan, Murakami constructs mostly first-person narratives whose   characters inhabit an ordinary Japanese world bombarded with…

New Hat Pattern: Xmas at Hogwarts

The Xmas at Hogwarts hat pattern can be purchased from my Ravelry store here. Is there anything more magical than Christmas? Yes—Christmas at Hogwarts! This light and lacy cable beanie design was directly inspired by the yarn, A Homespun House’s Gold Stellina Fingering in none other than the colorway “Christmas at Hogwarts.” The glistening gold…

Contour Cardi: My New Design

The Contour Cardi pattern can be purchased from my Ravelry store here. Soon after releasing The V-Back Tee pattern, I  had been thinking about a design akin to the V-back, only with the line of symmetry for the German short rows placed at the side seams (as opposed to the center back). After much sketching…
