New Pattern: "Millicent"

I just adore how these pineapples came to be. They are very textured, just as I imagined they would be when I started designing them. When you work on them, do not worry about the way that they pull together. They will cup while you work, but they block beautifully.

This pattern does not contain any overly-complicated stitches. I did challenge myself to make this with 6 repeats instead of my usual 8. I know some people like to make clocks out of doilies, and having repeats divisible by 6 makes that possible.

New Pattern: "Tegan"

When I began this pattern, I wanted to do a different type of strip than the normal one. And then I remembered the strips I incorporated in one of my older patterns, “Margaret.” So I decided to use those same strips, but much further out from the center. They provide a very unique texture for a flowery center.

This piece finished to about 14-inches in diameter. I used 426 yards (71g) of size 10 thread. There aren’t any complicated stitches involved in this pattern more so than my other patterns.

New Pattern: "Athelia" Shawl

I can’t believe I did it! I started this project back in March and became quickly frustrated with how difficult it is to design a shawl (with little to no practice). I’ve only ever made a virus shawl, so my experience with shawls was very limited. However, I really wanted to learn how to do this, so I picked up more yarn and started over.

01r.png

Initially I began with just one color, but I found that it did too good of a job of hiding stitches, so I started over again and chose two colors instead. That wouldn’t be the last time I started over, however. I frogged this project so many times that my yarn was pleading with me in the end to stop.

The biggest challenge for me was determining when to increase on the ends. It sounds easy, but when your stitches are so varied, the increases can be weird. I found that if I opted to “always increase, no matter what” it would work out much better. Eye-balling the piece just wasn’t doing it. I had to increase no matter what.

I’m over the moon with how this turned out. I got to use my blocking wires, which I rarely do. The density of the fabric is so thick and warm and perfect for this upcoming season.

New Pattern: "Edith"

This pattern came together a lot nicer than I had originally imagined. I didn’t have much of a plan, which is normal, but I honestly didn’t expect it to be so striking. And again, I used white. I’ve been trying to get back to color, but the feel of this thread is far superior to many of the other threads that I own. However, if you want to play with color, this pattern would work quite well.

This pattern has 42 rounds but works up very well. It doesn’t have a single cluster in it, but it has many popcorns and front post stitches, though that’s to be expected if you’re familiar with my work.

The texture on this one is spectacular. I love the flowery look, especially if viewed at an angle. There are several special stitches in this design, so I would label it as one of my more challenging ones.

To work this design, you need about 400-450 yards of size 10 thread. This pattern is 50% off during the first 24-hours and will return to full price tomorrow at 4:30pm EST.

New Pattern: "Ahmanet"

The pattern I released before this one, “Luna,” inspired me to try and make a big pattern this time. Because when I was working on that one, I ran out of thread before I wanted to be finished, and since it was a foreign thread, I could not get my hands on more, so I had to end the design early. That motivated me to grab my large skein of natural and see how large I could design a pattern. The result is “Ahmanet.”

01r.png

This pattern is 70 rounds! I used exactly 143g of Aunt Lydia’s jumbo ball in natural. In order to work this pattern yourself, you will need about 3-4 skeins of a thread that has about 300y/ball. However, how much you will need will rely heavily on your own tension. You may use more or less what I did.

04r.png

This finished piece blocked out to 22-inches in diameter. I generally use a 2.25mm hook, but I suggest that you use the hook that best complements your tension. You don’t want your work to look too loose or be too tight.

02r.png

I am surprised by how large this piece ended up being. Even as I approached the end, I was inspired to keep going, but I thought 70 was a good number of rounds. This will definitely inspire me to work toward larger patterns in the future.

To obtain this pattern, purchase below by using one of the buttons provided. I suggest purchasing through Ravelry. But if you can’t, you can use the black buttons to buy directly from me.
