I’m a lifelong knitter, from a family of knitters, gardeners, seamstresses, and sailors (yes, even the men!) - who also happen to be doctors, scientists, priests, and businesspeople (yes, even the women!). I like to design baby blankets, accessories for children, adults, and the home, and garments for children and adults. You can find my patterns through my indie line here on Craftsy or in a variety of print and online magazines and books. I happily work with local yarn stores, crafters, and indie dyers: please contact me to start a conversation about how we can support each other!
I’m a certified knitting teacher, accomplished technical editor for knitting patterns, and in my daily life am an academic science librarian.
This scarf, hat, and mittens set uses an easy twist stitch to provide texture, interest, stretch, and just plain fun to knit. The hat is a very stretchy beanie, the scarf has a keyhole design to allow for less length but more stability, and the mittens have extra twisting detail along the sides for fun and comfort. Done in a bulky alpaca/wool blend yarn, there's plenty of time to knit up a set to keep everyone in the family toasty warm this winter!
