Tidewater Twist

It’s summer, and that means new summer wear! I’m so excited to introduce you to my new sleeveless top, Tidewater Twist!

Whether you’re feeling a bit twisted up about summer or just trying to stay cool, this is the pattern for you! This lightweight tank feels extra cool and breezy in a soft cotton blend, while maintaining coverage in all the right places.

A cable twists up one side of the front to add interest and bring to mind the waves of your favorite beach. Which, by the way, is a great place to wear it!

Tidewater Twist is available on Ravelry, Payhip, and LoveCrafts. Be sure to check it out today!

Sideways Summer

Whether your whole summer is feeling a bit sideways, or just your lace, this overskirt is perfect for those steamy summer days. Who says your can’t wear handknits in a heatwave?!

Knit sideways and shaped with short rows, this lightweight lace pattern is oh-so-easy to customize to any size. Directions are included for waists 24″-38″, but detailed tips for customizing to other sizes are also included.

A lovely bonus to a summer overskirt is its flexibility. Throw it over different underskirts to completely change up your look!

Freeze-Thaw is a fun take on a necessary practicality. Named for the all too familiar cycle that characterizes winter in my home state of Virginia, and seasonal transitions further north, this pattern is a great way to add a little color and creativity to your next lightweight hat!

This hat is knit flat and sideways, using short rows to form the familiar shape. Knit each wedge in a different color for a bit of extra playfulness. It also makes for a great way to use up a collection of mini-skeins or scraps!

Freeze-Thaw gives you opportunities to practice a number of techniques explained in this blog, including short-rows, provisional cast-ons, and Kitchener stitch. Check out this quick knit today!


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!

I’m thrilled to introduce my latest pattern, Interconnected! Find it on Ravelry or LoveCrafts.

This fun, chunky necklace is perfect for both summer knitting and summer wearing. Show off your knitting year round!

This pattern is yet another collaboration with the incredible Lake Knit Yarns, this time on her fun Sparkle Sock base and in the exclusive new colorway Hopes and Dreams.

The pattern is quick and relatively simple to knit, made of interconnecting rings of i-cord. The beaded cord holding them together only enhances the sparkle of the yarn itself!

Ribbon Candy

I’m excited to introduce my latest pattern, Ribbon Candy!

This summery confection is the perfect blend of luxury and fun. The broad-shouldered tank features flattering chevrons in seven different colors, making it a great way to use up those single skeins of luxury yarn or a gorgeous artsy gradient set.

The sample uses two different yarns from Lake Knit Yarns, Pebble MCN and a Mini Skein Set, which lend themselves particularly well to a gradient pattern like this. Choose a bright, candy-coated color for extra fun!

In light of recent events, for the first week after publication (June 3 through June 10), 50% of all sales of Ribbon Candy will be donated to Know Your Rights Camp.

Goose Creek

The weather is getting cool, and it’s the perfect time to cuddle up under a new blanket like my Goose Creek!

Boost the modern, trendy feel of this children’s blanket with bold, on-trend colors or go classic with softer pinks or blues. Either way, this sturdy security blanket is sure to be loved by a kid in your life for years to come.

Mountain Air

I’m so happy to share a cool breeze with you on this hot August day! My new pattern Mountain Air is exactly the sort of light, airy tunic you need on a hot summer day.

This charming a-line tunic features a few creative, highly-personalized shaping options to insure the perfect fit for every body.

Mountain Air is worked with a provisional cast-on from the bust up, and then from the bust down. Its soft, floating lines pair well with a light skirt, or with jeans for a nice transitional piece between seasons.
