I am a long-time knitter and designer, living in Los Angeles with my husband and son. The patterns you see here are part of my independent pattern line, Mind of Winter Designs. You can find other Mind of Winter patterns at Mind of Winter on Ravelry. Recently, I have also had several designs featured in Twist Collective, including Evendim and Red Oak. In addition to publishing in Twist, I have published designs in Knitty, in Classic Elite pamphlets and in several books, including Knitting in the Sun, Boho Baby, and Greetings from Knit Café.View all patterns by designer (29) »
The woolen equivalent of a warm, fuzzy snowflake, this versatile pullover is worked up in Shalimar Yarns' Haven, an irresistibly lofty merino/silk blend. The pattern uses a combination of cables and lace to create an overall pattern that is complex in texture, yet surprisingly easy to work.
The pattern is suitable for advanced beginner lace and cable knitters. Please see specific required skills below. Instructions are both written and charted, and a detailed schematic is included. The pattern has been professionally tech edited to reduce the possibility for error, but if you have questions or believe that you have found an error, please contact me.
The body is worked circularly from the bottom up to the armholes, and then divided into front and back pieces, which are worked flat separately. The shoulders are joined, and stitches are picked up around the neckline to work the collar circularly. The sleeves are worked flat separately, and then set into the body. Finally, the sides and sleeves are seamed.
