The fiber obsession began at six years old, and my first original design was the infamous Barbie tube top. Since Barbie wasn’t paying me a living wage to keep her stylishly dressed, I ended up going to college, knitting feverishly throughout my education to maintain my sanity. I quit my day job at the phone company when I discovered that real people actually liked what I made, and have been designing ever since. I have co-authored two books: The Knitter’s Guide to Yarn Cocktails and The Crocheter’s Guide to Yarn Cocktails. I have designed for several major yarn companies and contributed to various magazines, books, and other publications .View all patterns by designer (21) »
Looking to warm up? How about some Hot Scotch? This hat and scarf set will knit up quickly in a bulky alpaca that is sinfully soft, giving the modified beret a beautiful drape. A fair-isle band gives the hat posture: it drapes rather than slouches. The bands are easy two-color stranded knitting, a great introduction to the art of fair isle knitting. Because the fair isle band looks the same both upside down and right-side up, the scarf is seamlessly constructed as a tube. Pull one end of the scarf through a slit in the tube, and you have a polished pulled-together look.
