The Happy Wrap takes three different lace stitches, all based on a diamond motif, to create a flowing but nonrepetitive whole. It is named for and inspired by my grandmother, Harriett. The smiles are for her joyous spirit; the diamonds for her brilliance; the hearts for her boundless love. Also designed in partnership with Brooklyn Handspun, whose lovely hand-dyed yarn makes this a pleasure to knit AND wear. Stitches used: Knit, Purl, Slip, K2tog, SSK, SK2P (slip, K2tog, pass slipped stitch over). Stitch instructions are charted and written out line-by-line, with a photo to show the stitch life-sized. The edging is scalloped by dint of blocking, not special edge stitches. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Lace knitting GAUGE 25 stitches and 38 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 21in (53cm) wide by 64in (160cm) long

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.
