Despite telling my mom years ago that I would never become a knitter, I took up a pair of needles in 2009 and havent put them down since! Knitting is an outlet for my creative energy and my desire to always be making things with my hands. My goal as a designer is to create unique knitting patterns; inspired by the beautiful, wild and rugged landscape of the Pacific Northwest--a place I loves to explore and am privileged to call home. I strives to write patterns that are easy to follow and simply enjoyable both to knit and to wear.
Keeping busy by day as a wife, mother of three and homemaker, I love to spend my evenings curled up on the couch with a cup of coffee, knitting, planning and sketching my never-ending design ideas. :)
If you have an questions about any of my patterns, would like to become a test knitter or to set up a trunk show, please feel free to contact me! Id love to help!
Laurelwood is a lightweight slouchy beanie. Knit in the round from the bottom up, it is a simple combination of ribbing, stockinette and a beautiful inlaid leafy lace panel. Due to the loose stretchy nature of the ribbing and the slouchy stockinette, this beanie will not only fit many different sized heads, but can also be removed without the fear of uncovering hat hair! The yarn blend of merino wool and bamboo was selected for its sheen, softness and stitch definition, making this slouchy beanie a stylish accessory that can be worn comfortably all day long in any season.
Pattern includes helpful photos and charted and written instructions, including notes on all the techniques described.
