A new lovely timeless knitting pattern


The West-Northwest Pullover can now been seen on the Pullovers and Cardigans page.

It was one of those designs where I was wondering, “Am I crazy to be doing this?”.  For some reason, these always end up to be my favourites.  It’s worked in a 4ply/Fingering yarn and covered in small rib, cables and twist stitches, hence my doubts about my own state of mind.  And of course a collar, which is so simple but transforms it to another level.  The outcome is so worth it.  I love the vintage look that I ended up with!

Janine Scarf pattern now available

The pattern for my new Janine Scarf is now available.The Janine Scarf is a mid-season cotton scarf in the Vandyke lace stitch.  There is a cute, double line of bobbles at each end.

So that the “v”s are pointing down at both ends, the scarf is worked in two pieces which are joined using a three-needle bind/cast off.

The yarn used is Sirdar Calico, and the colour I’ve used is 727 (green).  It’s a cotton acrylic blend in DK 8ply.  The perfect yarn for a mid-season scarf.
