I’ve wanted to make this […] Continue Reading…

Here’s how I’m applying my experiment to the Tea Leaves Cardigan, shown here in a photo from the pattern; note the gathered yoke pattern, which is where […] Continue Reading…

Stabilizing Seamless Sweaters, Part 3: Neck Edging

June 17

If you follow my blog, you’ll remember that I’m on a quest to put stability into the top-down seamless sweaters that I make. Too often, I’ve watched my beautiful sweaters grow droopy around the shoulders and ever-larger in the neck as time goes by.

Stabilizing Seamless Top-Down Sweaters, Part 2: Adding Shoulder Seams

June 11

In my first post about adding stability to a seamless top-down sweater, I described how I strengthened the neckline by casting on a couple of rows into the pattern, then picking up stitches and finishing the neckline as you would a typical seamed sweater. The picked up stitches prevent the […] Continue Reading…

Stabilizing Seamless Top-Down Sweaters, Part 1: Casting On

June 3

I love knitting seamless top-down sweaters. But I don’t always love the way they wear over time. With no seams to support the neck and shoulders, they have a tendency to stretch and look droopy. Some people crochet an edging around the neck to add stability. There is also […] Continue Reading…

Forest Weave Top

May 15

I recently finished this top, Forest Weave by Yumiko Alexander. The yarn in Schulana Kilino, a worsted linen/cotton blend.


I enjoyed the clever design, with its big cables separated by dropped stitches. And I’m so proud of myself, for once completing a summer top in time for summer!

Celebrating Spring & Another Linen Stitch Scarf

April 23

I love it when the wisteria bloom. The smell is heavenly, and the delicacy of the tiny blossoms is sweet.

I liked the spring-like greens in the Araucania Lauca yarn I used for this linen stitch scarf. The pattern is a popular one from my book Reversible Scarves: Curing the […] Continue Reading…
