Love Aran Lace? Bundle this pattern with my other Aran Lace cowls (Artemisia & Applejack) for a discount! Click here.

This lovely cowl is an exploration of Aran Lace -- the technique of integrating lace techniques into cables.

The small cowl, shown in Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted in Campbell, a bright cheery green, has you cast on & jump right in to the main body of the cowl, and work only two repeats of the chart.

The large cowl, shown in Dream in Color Everlasting in Jeans, a lovely mix of greys, blues and faded brown, begins and ends with a lacy cabled border. Knit the bottom border first, graft the edges, then pick up the stitches for three repeats of the chart for the main body of the cowl. Work the top border by working the live stitches of the cowl main body with the edge stitch of the border.

Thanks to Annie Maloney, mzannieknits, whose amazing stitch dictionary Aran...

Cozy fingerless mittens with a unique layered look and multiple options!

Malibu isn’t just movie stars and surfers. A lovely example of California Moorish-Spanish architecture, the Adamson House, is situated between Surfrider Beach and Malibu Lagoon. It is best known for the extensive use of Malibu Potteries tiles throughout the house.

Malibu tiles have a distinct Moroccan flair, one that I hope I’ve captured in the stranded portion of these mitts. The cabled portions represent the movement of water.

Learn more about Malibu Potteries and the Adamson House here: www.adamsonhouse.org.

This brim-up unisex hat highlights the simple luxury of the yarn with the graphic stranded pattern. It’s a great choice for your first stranded colorwork project as well; no floats are longer than five stitches. Work it with or without the pom pom.

The Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite National Park is one of the crown jewels of the National Park Servive constructions efforts of the 1920s, featuring massive amounts of granite and lumber intricately pieced together. You may also recognize it from scenes in Kubrick’s THE SHINING.

Love Aran Lace? Bundle this pattern with my other Aran Lace cowls (Achillea & Applejack) for a discount! Click here.

The genus Artemisia includes California Sagebrush (Artemisia californica) and a whole host of cultivars. It smells fantastic in the garden, though can get a bit unkempt. Its foliage has a soft, lacy appearance.

The Artemisia Cowl includes one of the my favorite Aran Lace cables (#28 from Annie Maloney’s book, Aran Lace), flanking the larger panel that I’ve used either directly in Sedona or as a variation in Jackalope.

I chose these panels not only for aesthetics but because they allow the knitter to gain practice in two of the main Aran Lace techniques: paired yarnovers and decreases to outline the path of the cable, and yarnovers and decreases within the cable itself.

This cozy vest incorporates a center panel using Annie Maloney’s Aran Lace techniques (stitch pattern number 87, with moss stitch (which I used on the sides) instead of double moss stitch), gentle waist shaping, and a flattering scoop neck. This vest is perfect to wear apple picking, wine tasting, or beach combing during crisp fall days or evenings. Its shaping and slight negative ease will show off (or help create) curves.

The beautiful turquoise color of the Oasis yarn gave me the name, Bisbee, of this lovely blouse. Bisbee turquoise is renowned for its beauty and color depth.

The delicate but simple intarsia lace panels form figure-flattering vertical lines. The dainty buttonband details, i cord neckline, waist shaping and softly fluttering sleeve and body hems all combine into a gorgeous feminine sweater that you’ll treasure.

Pattern Notes

This sweater is worked in pieces from the bottom up then seamed prior to working the 3/4 length sleeves and the bottom hem. Stitches for the sleeves are picked up around the armhole. The cap is shaped with short rows, then the sleeves are worked in the round.

Waist shaping is easily modified, as decreases and increases occur in the stockinette panels adjacent to the lace panels.

Total length is also easily modified in the hem to armhole area by working even longer prior to hip decreases, by working the waist longer, or by working even longer after the bust increases.

Simple crochet edging is used for the buttonband.

Using just one skein of SHELTER, shown in the Faded Quilt Colorway, these mitts will be a go-to project when you need something quick yet still special.

The cuff, featuring an Aran Lace stitch pattern from Annie Maloney’s Aran Lace stitch dictionary, is worked flat. Use a special button for the cuff. Cuff instructions are both charted & given line by line.

The stitches of the main body of the mitt are picked up along the edge. The main body of the mitt knits up quickly in stockinette stitch. The thumb is slightly offset for a more comfortable anatomically correct fit. Gusset increases are paired (right & left) lifted increases.

The beautiful stitch pattern plays with negative space to really highlight the feathers. Beads adorn the edge motif.

Pattern Notes
This shawl is worked from the bottom edge up. Decreases in the charts and short rows in the body are worked to shape the shawl. A purl ridge and I cord bind off ensure the top edge won’t roll.

The feather motif is very heavily modified from Herbert Niebling’s Königskerze.

This gorgeously soft indulgent cowl was inspired by the geometric motifs and colors present in Middle Eastern architecture.

Wear it with either side showing; it’s completely reversible.

If you’d like a cowl with a larger circumference, increase in repeats of 42 sts (which works out to be about 5.5”/14cm) and increase your yarn requirements proportionately.

Yarn
This cowl uses Dragonfly Fibers Soft Twist Djinni in the following amounts and colors:
(A) Burnished Brass, 305 yds/279m
(B) Peacock Feather, 165 yds/151m

This lacy camisole features flattering waist shaping and lace in abundance. Crocheted lace trim and delicate buttons give this a vintage feel.

The Rustic Silk is lovely to work with, and wears wonderfully.

Pattern Notes

This camisole is worked in pieces from the hem up then seamed prior to the crochet edging being worked.

Simple crochet edging is used for the armholes, hem and buttonband. You can substitute single crochet edging along the armholes. Work extra rows of the garter stitch hem at the bottom if you’d rather skip the crochet hem edging.

Waist shaping is easily modified, as decreases and increases occur in the stockinette panels adjacent to the lace panels.

Total length is also easily modified in the hem to armhole area by working even longer prior to hip decreases, by working the waist longer, or by working even longer after the bust increases.

The Cayucos shawl is shown in three different yarn weights: laceweight Wash My Lace; DK Croquet; and worsted weight For Better or Worsted. The latter two are shown as two-colored designs, worked in simple intarsia. Of course you can work these sizes in a single color as well.

The biasing caused by the increases and decreases of the chevron pattern has an interesting effect on the triangle pattern (from the Mica Cowl) in this two-colored unisex cowl—you’d expect the top knit triangle and the bottom knit triangle to look like mirror images, but they don’t!

This romantic crescent shawl has a beautiful, intricate flower stitch pattern that reminds me of the flowers you find on the various Cereus types of cacti.

Pattern Notes
This shawl is worked with a provisional cast on. The lace edging is worked first, from provisional cast on (the inner edge of the lace) to the outer edge of the lace, then bound off loosely.

Pick up stitches from the provisional cast on to work the short rowed main body. Work an I cord bind off.

The main flower repeat is a modification of one of the flowers in Herbert Niebling’s Creamohne.

This fun lace pattern combines small cables and lace for a pretty sock with a very comfortable fit.

The ribbed layout of the stitch repeat is reminiscent of cactus branches.

The stitch pattern is No. 66 from Annie Maloney’s stitch dictionary Stitch Definition.

Pattern Notes

These socks are worked cuff down with a standard heel flap and gusset construction. Wide ribbing flows into the lacy travelling stitch pattern. The heel flap echoes the vertical lines of the stitch pattern with a slipped-stitch heel flap pattern.

Foot length is customizable to your size. You can also work the leg longer by working additional sets of the complete 12 round repeat.

The charts are mirrored.

Pattern Notes

My husband Dave patiently watched me make multiple pairs of house socks for other people…until he plaintively mentioned he’d like a pair, too!

Because he loves Celtic cables, I picked a four strand braid for the main cable pattern, and created closed cables for the gussets.

The sock is knitted cuff down, and can be worked in your choice of Magic Loop, 2 circulars, or DPNs. However, explicit directions for these techniques are not given.

I would consider this an intermediate pattern.

The main cable pattern and the gusset patterns are presented only as charts.

The sock can be made longer or shorter to accommodate a shorter or longer foot. As knit, it measures 3” from cuff to top of heel flap, 9” from heel to toe, and 8” in diameter (unstretched).

If you knit the original size, one skein of...

I’m always looking for patterns that look elaborate but will knit up quickly for holiday gifts. De‑Lovely is just that: a combination of lacy whimsy and fun twisted, traveling stitches
that is quicker and easier to work than it appears.

Techniques used: simple lace, traveling stitches, knitting in the round.

Supplies: Cable needle, stitch markers (3), yarn needle

Pattern is both charted and written out.

You can probably get 2 pairs of mitts out of 1 skein of 400yd sock yarn, depending on size knitted and your gauge.

These lovely Art Nouveau dragonflies are sure to bring a smile to your face!

The pretty lace cuff, with contrast color edging, segues into a small peerie pattern. Next you get to work the stylized dragonfly motifs (back of hand & thumb gusset) and shell motif (palm). Simple ribbing, again with a contrast color edge, tops off the mitt and thumb.

Of course the motif is mirrored for right and left mitts!

The mitts are fully charted (left and right mitts) for each size. Decrease or increase rounds are also noted in the pattern. Blue guidelines are placed to help you keep your place on the chart. The pattern is designed to keep floats short as much as possible, though occasionally there are longer floats.

Pattern Notes

Size Small is both smaller in circumference and in length. If you would like a longer mitt, work in pattern for the same number of rounds as the Medium and Large mitts.

This top-down shawl, with a two-colored cable center section, just begs to be wrapped around you!

The dot-knit stitch is a fun and simple way to give texture to the side panels. A sumptuous lace and cabled edging is knit on at the end.
Play with this pattern: you can even work it in a single color, or with a contrasting edging, in case you don’t want to tackle the stranding and intarsia!

This hat takes advantage of the same stitch pattern as the cardi, alternating between the dot & reverse dot stitch patters to add textured stripes.

Work either the beanie or the slouch.

Make the ribbing 3.5in / 9cm if you’d like to have a folded brim; rather than working k2, p1, work p2, k1 so that the 2x1 rib shows once folded.

Yarn
Malabrigo Rios, 100% Superwash Merino Wool, 210 yds / 100g, 1 skein for Women’s Beanie, 2 skeins for all others

Notions

When I received the lovely Rios yarn in the Piedras colorway, I knew my original plan (a cabled cardi) wasn’t an option. I needed to find a stitch pattern that would highlight and utilize the gorgeous variegation of the yarn, something that would make the yarn, not the stitch patterns, the star.

With its short sleeves, nipped in waist and nubby textured fabric, this cardi makes a fantastic transitional piece from summer to fall. Wear it with jeans for a casual look, or pair it with a skirt. You can easily layer a coat over it if need be.

Pattern Notes
The sweater body is knit from the top down. Fronts and back are joined at the armholes and continued in one piece to the bottom edge.

I loved the intricate stitch patterns of Sedona and Jackalope so much that I wanted to revisit them in an easy to wear pullover.

The sweater is knit from the top down, with stitches picked up from the shoulder straps, fronts and back joined at the armholes, and the garment continued in one piece.
The sleeves are worked by picking up stitches along the armhole, working short rows for the cap shaping, then continuing in the round.

Waist shaping is easily modified, as decreases and increases occur in the seed stitch panels adjacent to the cabled panels. Waist shaping increases and decreases are worked in pattern to maintain the seed stitch pattern, adjacent to the first and last cables within the main chart.

Total length is also easily modified in the hem-to-armhole area by working longer prior to bust decreases, by working the waist longer, or by working longer after the hip increases.

Note that some charts are specific for each size or set of sizes (BACK and FRONT NECKLINES)....

This fun cabled hat features a modified stitch pattern (#183) from The World of Chie Kose. The cabling is subtle, with areas that look like holes. It’s named after a class of shelled, mostly marine, protists.

The Adamson House has two iconic pieces of tilework. The first is the peacock fountain; the second is the tiled fringed Persian rug.

This ‘rug’ is reason alone to visit the Adamson House. It dominates the hallway in which it was installed. It’s a triumph of trompe l’oeil – the detail is amazing, including the fringe which waves and overlaps like real fringe.

I love the fringe, which is why it’s what I wanted to reinterpret in a knitted piece. My intent was to evoke the edge of a Persian carpet including the fringe.

The picture of the rug shown is a reproduction from the wonderful company California Pottery and Tile Works.

Josephine is an elegant beaded fingerless mitten with Art Deco-inspired motifs, named after Josephine Baker, the legendary nightclub performer.

I can picture her wearing these while exploring Parisien nightclubs after performing in her own show.

However, I don’t think we should forget the Josephine who worked for the French Resistance (and was awarded France’s highest military honors), or the Josephine who was asked to lead the Civil Rights movement after the assassination of MLK.

Kelpies are mythical water horses that, in the guise of gorgeous horses, lure unwary travelers onto their
backs — and then drown (and then eat) the unlucky riders in the kelpie’s home body of water.

This Kelpie, though equally lovely, is much, much friendlier. With a combination of modified Japanese stitch patterns, twisted stitches and pretty passed-over lace stitches, all evoking streams and pebbles, Kelpie will seduce you with its delicate strength and beauty.

These cozy cuff-down, worsted weight socks were inspired by a gorgeous hike up the Klahhane Switchbacks in Olympic National Park.

You get to try a variety of techniques, including simple lace, bobbles and twisted stitches -- you won’t get bored. You can knit the multicolored version as shown (great for using stash leftovers) or solid socks.

The pattern is charted.

Please note these are also available through the KnitPicks IDP, knit at a different gauge. The Ravelry pattern includes instructions for both the original (heavy worsted) and the light worsted gauges. The heel flap is a bit different on the light worsted version as...

I use this patten in my beaded knitting class.

It has what I consider a good glory to work ratio: a beautiful result that’s not nearly as difficult as it looks.

Play with this pattern! Try different colors of beads, in different combinations, with different colored yarns.
Want a vintage feel? Go for a soft pastel with pearlized beads. Something edgier? Try a dark gray or black yarn with light amethyst, sapphire, or ruby colored beads.

A high contrast between bead color and yarn will, of course, highlight the beading more, but subtle glints of shine and color against a similarly colored yarn works well too. It all depends on the mood you want to evoke.

Don’t forget to explore the possibilities of various fibers. Different fiber blends of fingering weight yarn can also give quite different results -- compare a swatch of an alpaca blend, with a delicate halo, with one of a tightly twisted merino, for example.

Why lagniappe? I hope this pattern (which, in itself, is really three patterns) gives...

This lovely beaded stole, with slightly flared ends, can be worked with just one skein of light fingering weight sock yarn.

Lobelia cardinalis is a common California native plant, with pretty red flowers.

Pattern Notes

Work first half from the edging to the center, set aside, then work the second half. Do note that the ‘halves’ will not be precisely the same length due to the need to stagger the repeat.

As shown, this pattern uses nearly the entire skein of yarn. I recommend weighing your skein before you begin and when you are close to halfway. You can alter the number of repeats for Chart C if needed.

Changes to gauge or different yarn properties will affect total amount required.

Malaga Cove on the Palos Verdes Peninsula is a gorgeous spot for beach diving and snorkeling. Kelp forests are home to Garibaldi and other fish. The ocean floor varies between rock reefs and swathes sand. You can see leopard sharks, horn sharks, and more. Go on a day with a southerly or no swell for the best visibility.

The twisted stitch and lace pattern reminds me of the pattern of waves reflected on the sandy ocean floor on a sunny day.

Love the Estuarine Shawl, but either want more, or maybe something a little simpler? This sideways knit shawlette features the dot knit stitch in a textured side panel, and a sumptuous lace and cabled side edging that’s knit at the same time. It’s easily sized to your yarn quantity; work the repeats according to the recommended percentages of your yarn weight.

Morro is shown in two different yarn weights: laceweight Meadow and worsted weight Knightsbridge. You can work it in any weight following the guidelines in the pattern.

My grandparents took me and my younger brother Paul to Morro Bay so many times when we were growing up. Grandpa would go deep sea fishing, and the rest of us would go beachcombing and exploring. The Morro Bay Estuary is a vibrant, thriving estuary on the Central California coast.

This loose, lacy cowl, with a pretty circular stitch pattern formed by working a combination of lace stitches and 1/1 crosses, is perfect for spring. It’s named after a California wildflower, Nemophila menziesii, or Baby Blue Eyes.

Stitch patterns are both charted and written out.

It’s easy to change the size. To increase or decrease the circumference, add or decrease 2 edging repeats per main body repeat.

Note: As of 3/21/15, an additional version with top and bottom lace edging is available & is included as a separate pattern.

Pattern Notes

The edging is worked first. If you choose not to do a provisional cast on, rather than grafting the two ends together you can just sew the two ends together.

Directions are included for omitting the edging and working a garter stitch border instead.

The main body stitch pattern is stitch pattern #18 from Annie Maloney’s Stitch Definition, adapted to be worked in the round.

It also allows the lovely texture of the yarn itself to shine with the simple stockinette main body of the hat.

Opuntia features two vintage stitch patterns for the main body and edging for a delicate vintage look.
The ombre pattern in the beads (from light to dark) adds a contemporary touch. You can go subtle, as shown, or pick more colorful beads for a more striking appearance.

This shawl begins with a garter stitch tab. If you prefer, cast on rather than provisionally cast on and simply pick up 3 sts along the cast on edge.

Increases are worked as charted every RS row on either edge and on either side of the spine pattern. The edging is knit on, joined to the live stitches of the body of the shawl.

The alternating stitch patterns and colors in this fun, quick to knit unisex cowl are meant to evoke the striations of the mineral layers in the hills of the Painted Desert.

The Peacock Cowl & Peacock Mittens are inspired by the gorgeous peacock fountains that abound in the designs of the California Revival.

Both are initially worked in intarsia, using only three colors: the base color, the base peacock color, and the base flower color. After the base piece is finished, block it, then work the duplicate stitch embroidery.

Sit down with a cup of coffee or tea and take your time! Start with the flowers; they’re easier, and if this is your first time duplicate stitching, you’ll get plenty of practice before starting the peacock.

I wanted to design a shawl that incorporated traditional lace pat¬terns, reminiscent of peacock feathers, into a simple rectangular shawl. This is a good first lace piece for a confident knitter, but still has enough going on to maintain your interest if you’ve more experience.

The shawl is very easy to resize; since all the repeats across the different stitch patterns are the same width, simply work more (or fewer) panels. Of course length is also easily changed by working more or fewer repeats of each stitch pattern.

Worked in luxurious Blue Sky Alpacas Alpaca Silk, the Peacock Shawl would make a treasured gift – if you can bear to remove it...

Quercus is the genus for oak trees. California has 2 main types of oaks: Scrub Oaks and Coast Live Oaks. Oaks form the backbone of many of our California ecosystems, providing food and habitat to a large variety of species.

These simple mitts let the gorgeous Sunday Knits yarn take center stage.

I wanted to do a coordinating pattern to the Ringtail hat, but with slightly different motifs.

You have the option of simply working from the wrist cuff down, or using a provisional cast on, working the main body and top cuff of the mitt, then working the wrist cuff from the provisional cast off down so that the top and bottom cuffs match.

This vest / waistcoat takes elements from both Jackalope and Slide Rock for the motifs. I-cord finishes all the edges. The back has short rows to lengthen it a bit.

I’m not done with this stitch pattern! Look for Sedona Deconstructed, a pullover, this coming winter.

Pattern Notes
This vest is worked initially in pieces from the top down and is then joined at the armholes, and continued in one piece.

The shoulder short rows are charted for each size.

All of the cable patterns for the back repeat are included in one chart for ease of reference.

This pattern was exclusive to the 2012 Cooperative Press Sock/Mitt project club participants.

Pattern notes from designer Stephannie Tallent:

The deep, moody turquoise of this yarn, mixed with the gothic twisted stitches, brings to mind twilight shading into night, baroque cave dwellings with ornately carved stone, and… oh, just have fun knitting the socks and mitts! The mitts are offered in three sizes for perfect fit.

All yarn for this club was dyed by Kim of Indigodragonfly, who is lovely and wonderful and does fantastic colors.

These socks sport a subtle Aran Lace pattern in the central cable and a lot of textured in the seed stitch borders and gusset.

Pattern Notes
These socks are worked cuff down with a standard heel flap and gusset construction.

At 8 sts/inch, these socks are knit very densely for the yarn weight (sport weight). You can certainly use fingering weight yarn as well.
