Stranded Treasure Bag is knit in Lang's BeBe superwash wool. Traditional Nordic knitting patterns decorate a delicate bag, perfect for letters, treasures, and shoes! Finished project measures 13" by 12 1/4".
The eight page .pdf pattern features color charts. There is one large chart or several smaller charts; directions for both styles are included.
This pattern will not teach you how to do stranded knitting, but if you want a quick knit, or a project to practice stranded tension, this is perfect.
Falling Nights is knit in Elann's Lara cotton. A beautiful lace pattern forms a nightie or a tunic. Want it to skim over your curves, knit it with a wider hem (as shown). Want a slimmer fitting tunic? Instructions are given for that as well!
The ten page .pdf pattern comes in sizes 30" (36", 42", 48", 54"). The pattern is easy to follow (no need to "circle your size" or "reverse shaping") and easy to read (size 12 font).
The lace pattern is perfect for a new lace knitter. The stitch count stays the same on each row, and the pattern is easily memorized. The lace pattern is also given in both chart form and written form.

The Va Va Va Voom Shell is knit in Elann's Endless Summer Lara cotton. A unique ribbing pattern combines with a diagonal mock cable pattern for a shell that fits and flatters a woman's figure. The ten page .pdf pattern details which sort of cast on and decreases to use (no "reverse shaping" instructions here!), has two different neckline options, and comes in sizes 32" (35", 38", 41", 44", 47", 50"). Want to see more photos? Want to see it in a different color with different yarn?
Electric Combo Beret and Bag set is knit with 480 yards of Cascade 200. Easy to learn cables create undulating waves over the bag and beret—like electricity from one of those static electricity balls you find in a science museum.
The twelve page .pdf pattern contains patterns for an adult-sized hat (circumferences of 14 1/2 or 18 1/2 inches, diameter of 11 1/2 inches) and a matching bag. The pattern is easy to follow and easy to read (size 12 font). The cable patterns are given both chart form and written form. Multiple cables and a quick finish keep interest high.
This pattern was first published in Janet Szabo's newsletter, Twists and Turns.
This is Arctic Circle, available at Chiagu for $4.50USD and inspired by my friend Stina. The grey version was worked in alpaca by my friend Trish.
I currently have a free pattern, Code 88 Hat, available in .pdf format. There are two more photos in the .pdf file, including a photo showing one of the two choices of crown decreasing methods. Please respect the copyright as written at the end of the pattern.
