I had so much fun designing and knitting this beautiful, textured set! It looked so good on our beautiful daughter, Amy, that I named it in her honor.
I was inspired by a stitch pattern from a sweater I had made and the need to keep warm on yet another cold, January day in Iowa. The texture reminded me of the bark on our Ash tree. An easy to knit honeycomb stitch makes pockets on the inside to trap the warmth against your body.
This pattern is for the Amaliya Mittens in two sizes for women with a nice long cuff to keep out drafts. The larger size accommodates the longer length from wrist to thumb and fingers. Great for gifts or charity projects.
There are separate patterns for a capelet, hat, and fingerless mitts to match.

I learned to knit when I was about 6 or 7 years old. It soon became a passion that I have honed over the years by knitting for myself, my husband and our 8 children as well as many other friends and family members. Our first grandchild is drowning in knits!
I taught most of our children how to knit and have taught others through my LYS over the past several years. I love sharing my passion with other knitters! My latest projects have often included lace and Norwegian designs that look more difficult than they really are, Honest!
I started designing patterns to use in the classes I was teaching. Because of that many of my patterns are for basics. The knitting muse has been taking me to new things lately though! I hope you enjoy seeing what I am doing.
Thanks for your interest in my work. Happy knitting!
