Petra + New Pattern Launch

The idea for Petra had been swimming in my head for years before I finally cast on. In some ways, this pullover represents a lot of design aspects that I love - easy lace panels, an interesting construction, and a casual silhouette that’s easy to wear. I had the high-level design elements sorted out, but I still had a few details that I needed to decide.

Scone Shawl + knitscene

The Scone Shawl is large, warm shawl knit in a worsted weight yarn and features a diamond leaf lace stitch pattern that incorporates the increased stitches perfectly. I love that it’s the perfect size to throw over your shoulder while apple picking, or protecting yourself from the cold on winter mornings in the office.

Porta Pullover + knitscene

Last fall I submitted my design idea to knitscene for the Winter 2019 issue featuring designs for wear all week long - from work to play and everything in between. My first design (more on that later!) is the Porta Pullover, an easy drop shoulder tunic sweater with a wide casual cowl neck featuring a lovely leaf lace stitch pattern.

Firefly + New Pattern Launch

I initially cast on for Firely in April 2018. I too, cannot believe I’ve taken so long to finish it. Because I started it so long ago, I can’t exactly tell you where the inspiration came from but there’s another design coming up next week that shares the same stitch pattern. This is my favorite lace stitch. It’s a simple two row repeat but it looks so delicate and intricate but it’s a really easy way to showcase your knitting prowess. I’m also a fan of easy to make shawls that don’t require overly detailed instructions. Firefly is the perfect marriage between the stitch and easy construction.

The designs in this collection feature beautifully textured pullovers with textured stitches and cables, from pullovers to easy accessories.

Aleutian + Knit Now Issue 103

This summer I had the opportunity to knit a summer pullover for Knit Now’s Issue 103, which launched in June. The design concept was simple: a cropped boxy pullover with a fun deep v-back to pair with all your summer skirts and dresses. Knit in Rowan’s Summerlite 4ply this pullover is just as easy to wear as it is to knit.

Wild Dunes Shawl

When I first started knitting this shawl I admit that I didn’t have much of a design in place. I just cast on and started knitting a crescent shawl in stockinette stitch hoping that I would get inspired along the way. That strike of inspiration never exactly came - I didn’t know what lace pattern to use, if I even wanted to use one at all, and I didn’t know what I wanted to do for the edging. But I kept on knitting anyway.

Jordan Shawl

I’m so excited to announce the launch of my Jordan Shawl. This design has been a long time coming and holds a special place in my heart. I thought of the idea for this shawl last spring during our trip to Israel & Jordan, for which this shawl is named.
