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!
The Vanilla Bean pattern is a vintage style lace cloche that looks intricate, but it actually incredibly simple to knit. Shaped only by yarn overs and knit-two-togethers, the cloche is knit top down in a spiral pattern that continues through the body and is finished with a pretty scalloped edging. Knit in lightweight cotton, the Vanilla Bean is not only incredibly soft, but has the right amount of stretch to it--lasting through children's many growing seasons. This cloche is perfect transition hat from winter to spring and would make a quick and interesting knit for a baby gift.
Pattern includes helpful photos and instructions including notes on all the techniques described.
