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) »
Moonshiner is named for a traditional song that I love and just cannot get out of my head. The sample is shown in The Plucky Knitter Primo Worsted in the "Urban Iron" colorway, which reminds me of moonlight - a slate gray blue. It's a wonderful sweater for those days of fall when you take a brisk walk through trees with changing leaves and then curl up inside with some hot cocoa. Or, if like me, you've made the west your home, it's great to throw on for a night by the firepit, roasting s'mores and dreaming of those autumn leaves as you hum a traditional tune. The pattern is suitable for intermediate knitters, with basic knowledge of lace and cabling. Please see specific required skills on the pattern page. Instructions are both written and charted, and the pattern has been professionally tech edited.
