Dryad

The weather is finally cooling down here in Virginia and it feels like the perfect time to release my new sweater pattern, Dryad.

This lightweight hooded cardigan is perfect for a walk in the autumn woods. The tunic-length sweater features cabled bands along the hems, fronts, and hood and a simple double moss-stich body.

Loose, drapey fabric makes for a great fit even over multiple layers. The pockets are deep enough to hold your keys, or just keep your hands warm on a frosty morning.

Check out Dryad on Ravelry or LoveKnitting today!

Last Rose of Summer

I’m excited to introduce you to Last Rose of Summer! This little scarf or shawlette is a great transitional piece to bridge the gap between summer and fall.

It’s also a great project to use up those gorgeous mini-skeins you couldn’t resist at the trunk show, or those luxe bits of cashmere you have hanging out in your stash. It lends itself particularly well to a gradient set.

This lacy hexagon looks impressive, but is surprisingly simple to make! It can be worn in a number of ways, making it a very versatile addition to your wardrobe!

Last Rose of Summer is available on Ravelry and LoveKnitting.

Diamond Collection

I have a new collection out, just in time for holiday knitting! I am thrilled to introduce you to the Diamond Collection. This collection contains 3 patterns available separately, or at a discount as an e-book.

Centenary scarf

The first and easiest pattern in this collection is Centenary, named for one of the largest diamonds ever unearthed. This fully reversible scarf is surprisingly beginner friendly, consisting entirely of knits and purls with no shaping at all.

Orlov gloves

The second pattern in the collection is Orlov, named for a diamond in the Russian crown jewels. Appropriate for intermediate knitters, this is actually quite a fast little pattern if you’ve knit gloves before. Ideal for a last minute gift!

Koh-i-Noor hat

The final and most adventurous pattern in this collection is Koh-i-Noor, named for a diamond in the UK crown jewels. This giant, super-slouchy beret will keep your head and ears toasty warm all winter long.

If you’re looking for a luxurious matching gift set to give this season, or just something beautiful to keep yourself warm, I hope you’ll indulge in the Diamond Collection!

I’m Back!

So it’s been a long while since I put out a new pattern. I thought you might like an explanation for why I’ve been so busy elsewhere:

Understand now why I’ve been a little preoccupied? 😉 Rest assured I’ve not given up knitting nor designing entirely though. I had a pair of sweater patterns mostly done before my son was born, and they are just waiting for photography and tech editing now. I hope to publish both this winter.

scarf preview

I also have a fun winter accessory set that will be ready for test knitting shortly. You can see a preview of the scarf above, and there are coordinating gloves and a hat as well. If test knitting goes well, and nothing crazy happens with my Smiley Guy, those should be published by mid-fall. Feel free to drop me a line if you want in on the test knit!
