Farrand Loop Detail audknits

Farrand: Knitty Winter 2016 Pattern

I’m excited and grateful to have a pattern in the current issue of Knitty, the fabulous online magazine. Farrand is, if I may say so myself, a really fun and easy pattern to make. Malabrigo Rios yarn offers up wonderful colors to pair together. Better yet, the fiber is super-soft and a joy to wear. The pattern came about when …

First Project of 2017

I almost got it done in time for Christmas….instead it has turned into my first completed project of 2017. This is the hat I designed for Vogue Knitting, Fall 2015. I hate to play favorites, but it really is one of my favorite designs to knit – the cables keep it interesting and I like the finished piece. With snow coming soon I …

Rios Linen – Carrying the Yarn

Even after making it a bunch of times, I’m still obsessed with the linen stitch scarf pattern I included in my book Reversible Scarves: Curing the Wrong Side Blues. I turn to it over and over when I travel because it’s a super-portable project and is easily memorized. I love using it to experiment with my favorite variegated yarns. On airplanes, …

Gimme Shelter Cat Blankets

The pattern below includes some very simple ideas for making blankets for cats in animal shelters. I’ve put together yarn suggestions and stitch pattern recommendations to match the weight of the yarn (either bulky or super bulky). The blankets are dense to offer the cats plenty of cushioning for warmth and softness against hard cage floors. The pattern makes for great social …

Snuggling Up and Turning Pages

Now that it’s like this outside… I’m getting a lot of use out of my Page Turner Throw!   The throw, made Quince & Co.’s gorgeous Lark, is holding up really well. I love snuggling up in this as a plan my next few projects. One that I can tell you about involves kitties….lots and lots of kitties at the local shelter. They …
