Despite telling my mom years ago that I would never become a knitter, I took up a pair of needles in 2009 and haven’t 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! I’d love to help!
Seaside is an openwork lace cowl. The lace pattern is a simple stitch: easy to memorize, fun to repeat and perfect for showing off your favorite hand-painted fingering-weight yarns. This cowl is knit in the round from the bottom up, and with the addition of buttons can be worn in a variety of different ways.
With the ends unbuttoned it is perfect for sunshine and warmer weather, showing off the openwork lace stitch. With both ends buttoned together, it becomes comfortable, doubled fabric, great for layering once the night air cools down. And because the stretchy lace drapes so beautifully, it can also be worn over the shoulders as a shawl, ready for a night out on the town!
Pattern includes helpful photos and charted and written instructions, including notes on all the techniques described.
4 stitches and 6.5 rows = 1 inch in stockinette stitch
