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 lovely scarf has everything going for it: the strong geometric pointed pattern (modeled on the Pinnacles stitch pattern) lends movement and grace, the wool/bamboo blend gives warmth and silkiness, and the length means it works in nearly any climate.
Pinnacles is made on US 6 (4mm) needles from three skeins of Classic Elite Wool Bam Boo, a renewable fiber blend that has the warmth of wool but the smoothness of bamboo. It is constructed from the center out to points in pattern for a polished, professional look. The relatively simple stitch pattern is balanced by the slightly advanced construction techniques to make a project that is appropriate for intermediate through advanced knitters.
