Directionality

Mix two speckly colors and play around with directionality on this fun-to-work and fab-to-wear cowl! The textured stitch is easy to execute but so much fun to work, and the fading from one color to another is soft and subtle. Add a few wee buttons, and voila! You’ve got a piece you can wear upside-down and rightside-up.

Rainbow Boomerang

One day I was playing around with a deep blue skein of sock yarn and a wee rainbow set of minis. I inserted a rainbow into the middle of the garter-y sweep of a boomerang shawl, and could literally hear my rainbow-loving heart go pitter-patter. Now all I want to do is make Rainbow Boomerangs, other projects be damned. Want …

Newsletter Shawl

I started this shawl pairing two lovely yarns and a nebulous idea. The rhythm is so soothing, and the resulting shawl so snuggly, I just had to share it with my newsletter list. I hope you enjoy the reading of my newsletter and the knitting of the shawl as much as I enjoy creating both of them.

Uni-horn Magic Shawl

Friendship is magic, and so is this shawl. The shape and colorplay are reminiscent of the horn gracing the forehead of the world’s sauciest unicorn. You can use one color or two for the garter sections, and all eight Knitted Wit unicorn colors or one sparkly skein of unicorn goodness for the mesh sections.

Garterescence

This yarn is so squishy, so wooly, so fabulous, that it just begged to be something classic and fun. It called for garter stitch, and a lot of it. I added in a bit of beady slipped stitches, an on-the-bias rectangular shape, and the result is the ideal wrap-yourself-in-wooly-goodness wrap for fall, winter, and beyond. Add a saucy shawl pin, …

Self-Care Shawl

This shawl is the epitome of knitterly self-care: all of the sections have a rhythm you can really get into; it’s a great excuse to pair two complementarily lovely colors; the yarn is domestic, soft, gorgeous, and bouncy; and the final object is a big hug of a shawl, perfect for snuggling under after a day spent resisting and persisting.

Muriel’s Shawl

On our way home from a few days visiting family on the Southern Oregon Coast (and hiding from record-breaking heat in Portland), we stopped at a coastal wayside named after a local woman named Muriel O. Ponsler where we looked for agates, splashed in the ocean, and shot photos of this delightfully bright and fun shawl. In my very casual …

Punch Bowl Shawl

Not only was this shawl the most deliciously delightful thing to knit, but I’m pleased as punch with how it all came together. I hope you find a deliciously pleasing combination for your own Punch Bowl Shawl.

Dualistic

We all have those single skeins of gorgeous fingering weight yarn, right? You amass these things, with the goal of making socks, or one skeins shawls. But then you realize that it goes really well with another skein. Or you don’t want a pair of socks in it. Or you prefer larger-than-one-skein shawls. And that’s where Dualistic comes in. Use …

Puget Sound Shawl

Make the small version for a quick one-skein-of-special-fingering-weight-yarn kind of project, and have a saucy kerchief that keeps you looking stylish while warming your neck. Grab a second skein for a luxurious wrap. Both versions have a rhythm that makes you whisper “just one more row…”
