Barlow is a fitted, fingerless mitt pattern characterized by a twisted cable winding around the forearm and along the top of the hand. Reminiscent of an old wagon trail winding through valleys and mountains, the cable is cleverly manipulated by simple increases and decreases along each side. Because of the shifting stitches of the spiraling cable, these mitts are most easily knit in the round, with the "Magic Loop" method. Lightweight but warm, Barlow is sure to become a favorite accessory when following your own adventure trail!

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!
