Empire + Knit Picks

Last fall I submitted my design idea to Knit Picks for their Form & Function booklet, a pattern collection that was going to focus on the Gansey pullover but with a fun and modern take. 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. To purchase the pattern for immediate download, you can head to the pattern page in my shop here. For those that prefer to purchase through Ravelry to store the pattern in your library, you can do so here.

Semilla

The Semilla pullover is a basic seed stitch pullover with easy eyelet accents evenly spaced throughout the body. The eyelet accents are also added as a decorative detail on the sleeve cuffs. The seed stitch is rhythmic to work and the eyelets create a fun break in the knitting. With an attractive boat neck and an easy fit throughout, Semilla can be worn alone or easily layered.

Mollis Shawl

The Mollis shawl is named for the latin translation of “soft” or “tender”. A few months ago I had driven south of Charleston to a small town in Beaufort, SC as they are home to the closest yarn store that I could visit. While I was browsing the shelves I came across Wool Addicts’ Water (by Lang Yarns) in a soft, muted rose-pink color. In March, we are planning an epic ski vacation in European in the Alps of France, Switzerland, and Italy. I knew I wanted to create a shawl that would work great for the après lifestyle in the early evenings but that would be functional and keep me warm as well. And thus the Mollis shawl was born.

Illud Shawl

The Illud Shawl has to be one of the easiest things I have ever made. For 90% of this project you are doing the same thing every row in beautiful, mindless garter stitch. The beauty of this design lies in the 2-ply cashmere. It is simultaneously soft & sharp. The cashmere blurs the stitches a bit but the picot bind off adds a little bit of crispness to it. The name “Illud” comes from the latin translation of points - a name that is cool & sophisticated, just like the shawl.

Gorgette Shawl

The Gorgette shawl provides a great introduction to shawl knitting. The stockinette stitch body is rhythmic and quickly becomes a mindless project suitable for travel or just something to pick up casually in free moments. The lace edging is worked after the crescent shawl is completed and may pose a challenge for the newest of knitters, but can be quickly mastered!
