I design at the intersection of style and organic with Puddles, my Great Dane, by my side in the mountains of North Carolina surrounded by God's majestic and inspiring creation. My eye for knitwear meets caring about health, people, and the environment with the goal of connecting with others through high quality knitting patterns that feature eco yarns!
I hope you derive as much enjoyment in working up my patterns as I have had in creating them! Today is a great day to knit :-)
My sister inspired me to design a beginner pattern. She has crocheted for years and was leery at trying her hand at knitting, so I decided to tempt her beyond her doubts. I created a simple pattern that required only knit, purl, and a button opening, in her favorite color, blue. To ensure her success I included written directions as well as a chart. Furthermore, I sent this pattern off to be tech edited to make certain it would be as universally understood as possible.
As to the specifics behind the "Off the Cuff" design, I find cuffs on garments rather interesting as they intentional expose of the wrong side of a work. The seed stitch alters to emulate the structure of a cuff. The coconut shell button lends itself perfectly to the organic cotton yarn, naturally with a touch of preppy.
