About this Design: At Norstead, a model Viking village and trading port near L’Anse aux Meadows in Newfoundland, Canada, the sheep are kept in enclosures with small, A-frame huts. When I was working on this design collection, I kept returning to this photo and had an image of this shape combined with swags of garlands. Several sessions hunting through stitch dictionaries later, I found a border design that includes both the swag motif and a flower bud (or bell) dropped edging, a perfect counterpoint to the hard geometric shapes of the “huts.”

During a class on charting lace with Joan Kass, I was inspired by one of her stitch patterns and this pattern was the “jumping off point” for rows 11 to 18 of this pattern.

This wrap is worked along the length and the size can easily be adjusted by altering either the stitch count (length) or number of row repeats (width).

Pattern includes both a chart and written out instructions.

Yarn:
Yarn A: 3 skein Classic Elite Allegoro (50 gr/152 yds), colour 5650 Cerignola

Yarn B: 3 skeins Nashua Handknits Desert Flower (50 gr/112 yds), colour 3564 Cornsilk

This pattern looks equally lovely worked in lace weight yarn (approximately 700 - 800 yards) and results in a stole of similar size.

Needles:
4.5 mm or US #7, 32” long (or size required to obtain gauge)

This shallow shawlette is worked from the bottom up, with crescent shaping produced using short rows in garter stitch. The upper edge is finished with an I-cord bindoff. The shawlette pattern includes instructions for five yarn weights and two sizes for the heavier weight yarns - a versatile pattern, perfect for using up stash!

Anna Perenna is an old Roman goddess of the seasons (or “ring” of the year, as the name “per annum” indicates). Her festival fell on the Ides of March (March 15), which would have marked the first full moon in the year in the old lunar Roman calendar when March was reckoned as the first month of the year.

At a time of year when those in the north long for warmer weather; a crescent shawlette in spring colours to honour the goddess Anna Perenna seems apropos, offering a touch of warmth when needed and heralding a fresh season.

A thoroughly modern shape and yet, one can imagine it wrapped around the shoulders of Audrey Hepburn as she walks the streets of Rome or drinks coffee in a café in Paris.

The stitch pattern on this cowl immediately brought to mind the open “jaws” of the venus fly trap plant, which of course brought to mind Audrey II from “Little Shop of Horrors.” Named in her honour, the sample of this cozy cowl is worked in decadently luscious yarn from Bijou Basin Ranch.

This is the perfect project for a precious skein of luxury yarn. The circumference can be customized by adding/removing stitch repeats while the height can be adjusted by working additional rounds.

About this Design: Windmills are an iconic image and were used throughout history in most parts of the world. The traditional geometric patterns of the windmill’s blades are the inspiration for this design. The name comes from the Irish “white windmill,” Blennerville Windmill, built in 1800. Restoration work on the mill began in 1984 and the mill was opened in 1990.

About this Design:
The pebbles and limestone shale of the Burnt Cape Ecological Reserve at the tip of the Great Northern Peninsula in Newfoundland, bring to mind purl bumps on a field of stockinette stitch. In designing this piece, I utilized the stitch textures of Scottish Guernsey patterns.

Burnt Cape Guernsey Stole is knit using Bare Naked Wools ‘Ghillie Sock’, a 100% Cheviot wool yarn. Cheviots are an old breed of sheep from the Scottish highlands, known for their hardiness and tenacity in harsh climates, producing fleeces of fine wool that is soft yet tough. These sheep produce a finely-crimped, hard-wearing wool, perfect for outerwear and socks - and for keeping warm in the arctic conditions of the ecological reserves when visiting the Great Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland.

I was paging through Japanese stitch dictionaries and found the main pattern used in this cowl. It reminded me of an Egyptian cartouche and I visualized it in a deeper vibrant red. That design, Cartouche Shawl, was published in Knitty, Winter 2011. I’ve since used these stitch patterns in the Cartouche Slouchy Beret and the Cartouche Stole; however, I still wasn’t done with this design and knew that I wanted to do a cowl and fingerless gloves to complete the set.

The Cartouche Cowl begins with a provisional cast on and the piece is worked along the circumference and then the two ends are grafted together. The border pattern are slightly modified from the one used in the Cartouche Stole so, if you’ve knit already knit that piece, you’ll want to pay extra attention to the final few rows of the chart.

This elegant beret is designed using one of the border
stitch patterns from the Cartouche Shawl and is
intended to be a matching piece.

The Cartouche Shawl was inspired by the stitch
patterns found in a Japanese stitch dictionary. The main
pattern used in the shawl reminded me of an Egyptian
cartouche and I visualized it in a deeper vibrant red.

Written to be worked on circular needles, the pattern can easily be done on dpns or magic loop. The 8 page pattern includes both charts and written instructions, as well as a photo tutorial of the flower bud motif (page 4).

I was paging through Japanese stitch dictionaries and found the main pattern used in this shawl. It reminded me of an Egyptian cartouche and I visualized it in a deeper vibrant red. That design, the Cartouche Shawl, was published in Knitty, Winter 2011.

I received a number of requests for a rectangular version using these stitch patterns. The Cartouche Stole is worked in two sections, beginning with a provisional cast on in the centre back. The stitch patterns flow seamlessly one into another. To accomplish this, transitional charts are used. These are marked as such and must be followed with extra care as stitch patterns are altered to flow into the next design.

Pattern is 19 pages. Charts are on pages 9-13. Written instructions for charts are on pages 14-19.

About this Design:
This is a surprise addition to the Northern Landscapes, part 1 collection. There is a rock found in The Burren, Ireland with a branching pattern created by erosion from rainfall. The fissures remind me of the mark a bird’s foot makes in the sand. The stitch pattern used in this cowl also reminds me of a bird’s foot and so I decided to call this the “Crow’s Foot Cowl.”

About this Design:
The Eldhraun lava field in Iceland is covered in an amazing carpet of green moss. The rounded lumps and bumps created by the lava are sometimes a lighter green than the moss in the folds between the lumps. Looking at these depressions, I started to see patterns and wondered if I could capture some of them using cables. Thus the Eldhraun cowl was created.

The first time I touched Bare Naked Wools ‘Confection’ I knew two things: 1) I wanted to wrap myself in the yarn and 2) the amount of “spring” in the yarn would make it a dream to knit with. The natural colours of the yarn made it so difficult to choose just one and so I selected two shades of grey and the natural figuring on deciding on a pattern later. A few days later this cowl sprang fully designed into my dreams and quickly flew off my needles. The generous yardage in these skeins means that there was lots of yarn left to design a matching hat and fingerless mitts.

About this Design:
When visiting the Burnt Cape Ecological Reserve in Newfoundland, Canada, I took many photos of the tiny plants growing there. Paging through them later I came across the photo that was the inspiration for this piece. In the photo is a dark grey rock that has white patterns on it from lichen. It appeared as if the rock was covered in fancy lace work, columns of eyelets and flower buds, almost like a Faberge egg. Right beside the rock was a tiny succulent plant with leaves of a beautiful red.

The design on the rock and plant colour inspired this design and I found the stitch pattern used for the main body of the stole. The pattern looks like a Faberge egg sitting on a base designed to look like a flower.

Wrap your neck is cushiony warmth! The dimpled fabric of the cowl, combined with the insulating properties of the camel and yak fibers used in the samples, ensure you will stay toasty warm during even the coldest of days.

Although the look of this stitch pattern is quite different on each side, both the “right side” and the “wrong side” are very attractive. In the photo of the blue cowl worn with the matching hat, the reverse side of the fabric is shown.

About this Design:
Sorted circles or “Frost Boils” occur during the process of soil heaving caused by the freezing and thawing cycle. Larger particulates tend to be pushed to the surface more frequently than smaller ones and then shifted to the outside where they remain, creating circles. Sorted circles have a border of stones surrounding a centre of finer material as shown in the inspiration photo below. For more information on this process and other effects of frost on limestone barrens, visit this very informative website - www.limestonebarrens.ca.

After finishing the Frost Boils Cowl, there was still a generous amount of yarn left for these boot cuffs.

Pattern is 6 pages.

Skills Required:

  • Working with charts

The stitch pattern used for the body of this scarf reminds me of a forest of trees, their branches forming high, mysterious arches. The shape of the arches are gothic in nature and that, plus the muted yet rich tones of the beautiful cashmere from Sericin Silkworks, led to the name for this decadent scarf. This project uses up every yard of the precious, luxury fiber.

The scarf is worked from the bottom up in two pieces that are then grafted at the centre back of the neck. This construction ensures that the arches of the lace pattern point upward on both sides of scarf. With buttonholes on one end, you can button this scarf in numerous ways to hold it in place around your neck.

About this Design: Walking out the boardwalk at L’Anse aux Meadows National Historic Site is almost like walking through treetops. The trees are so short that all you are surrounded by is branches. The stitch pattern in the main body of this design features traveling cable arms – resembling roots or branches. The border pattern reminds me of the seed pods found on the tall grasses there, blowing in the strong winds. The “yarn” used for the baby blanket sample is made of several strands of heavy laceweight yarn and cobweb yarn held together, creating a yarn that falls between worsted and aran weight yarn.

About this Design:
At the Geo Centre in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada, there is a display outlining the different types of rock that comprise the province and the age of the rock itself.

When I first came across the Pyrenees stitch pattern, I fell for the boldness of the diamonds, nested one within the other. I knew right away that I wanted to use this pattern for a shawl but couldn’t envision the rest of the shawl details. The design simmered away in the background, finally beginning to coalesce once I found whimsical edging design. The softness of the edging pattern hinted at a pairing with a luxurious fibre, and I knew I had found the match for the special skeins of Sericin Silkworks ‘50/50 Buffalo Silk’ marinating in my stash.

The Pyrenees stitch pattern has only 2 rest rows for every 18 pattern rows and is therefore recommended as an advanced or adventuresome knitting pattern.

About this Design:
On the barren, limestone landscape of Burnt Cape Ecological reserve, the vegetation thrives an inch or two off the pebbles. The more than 300 varieties of arctic plants provide a colourful carpet during June and July, transforming the desolate grey landscape with their vibrant blooms. One of these is Roseroot (Rhodiola rosea), the inspiration for this cowl.

Written to be worked on circular needles in the round, this cowl can easily be done using dpns or magic loop. The circumference can be customized by adding/removing stitch repeats while the height can be adjusted by working additional rounds. Each repeat of Chart A’s 16 stitch/12 row pattern adds 2.125”/5.40 cm in width and 1”/2.54 cm in height.

Sargaço is the Portuguese word for sargasso, the type of seaweed for which the Sargasso Sea is famous. The Sargasso Sea sits in a still part of the ocean, providing the plants a place to grow and develop “a central point at which the floating bodies unite.” (from chapter 11 of Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys) The central panel of this shawl provides the point of stillness, while around it swirls the foam of the ocean. Slowly one begins to see the stems of seaweed emerging until the plants fully form along the bottom edge. Sparkling out from among the fronds are beads, highlighting the movement of the seaweed among the waves.

Sinuous waves flow through the body of this top-down, triangular shawl, highlighted by the luster and drape inherent in the longwool fibres of the Blue Faced Leicester. If substituting yarn, select a wool blend that has contains silk to achieve the same amount of drape.

Sinuosity Shawl begins with a lace “tab,” a common method for beginning top-down, triangular shawls. As the Sinuosity Shawl has a panel down the centre, the tab “strip” is longer. A link to instructions for this technique is provided in the Links section of this pattern.

Every Librarian needs cozy socks for warmth in drafty libraries or when chasing after overdue books. These toe-up, unisex socks pay homage to the librarian’s stock-in-trade – The Stacks. The stitch pattern evokes bookshelves while the top border brings to mind the drawers of a card catalogue. Pattern is easily reversed for those that prefer to work socks top-down and can be customized with longer legs for those wishing to wear them with a skirt.

Worked toe-up, the socks are offered in 6 sizes (XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL) to work for both men and women’s sizes and are best worked in a solid, tonal or semi-solid M/C/N sock yarn.

The “stacks” stitch pattern is worked on the instep and up the leg, made up of 2 x 2 ribs that form the “books” and sections of twisted stitches form the “shelves.” The border pattern is comprised of st st and reverse st st boxes that bring to mind a row of card catalogue drawers.

When I first saw this colour (Between Good and Evil), the first thing that came to my mind was the image of a fox, and I knew the yarn called out for a design that somehow incorporated a fox. I soon found a stitch pattern that reminded me of sheaves of wheat, and the following passage from the inspirational story Le Petit Prince was instantly brought to mind.

My design is a tribute to friendship and the faith one fox placed in a little boy. The fox forever looks out over his wheat fields and listens to the wind.

Excerpt:

“Nothing is perfect,” sighed the fox.
But he came back to his idea.
“My life’s very monotonous,” he said. “I hunt chickens; men hunt me.
All chickens are just alike, and all the men are just alike.
And in consequence, I am a little bored.
But if you tame me, it’ll be as if the sun came to shine on my life.
I shall know the sound of a step that’ll be different from all the others.
Other steps send me hurrying back underneath the ground.
Yours will call me, like music out of my burrow.
And then look: you see the grain-fields down yonder?
I do not eat bread. Wheat is of no use to me.
The wheat fields have nothing to say to me. And that is sad.
But you have hair that is the color of gold....

When I first discovered The Heathen Housewife’s (Shelly Kang) Blankie Tutorial, I was inspired to translate the techniques into a short scarf using sock yarn. The small size of the squares means each only uses 2.5 g of yarn. When using variegated sock yarn, each square turns out different than its neighbour.

This pattern is suitable for an advanced beginner and can be worked in any fingering weight yarn. It is particularly suited to variegated or handpainted sock yarns but would be equally attractive in solid coloured yarn.

Pattern is 3 pages.

Gauge: each mitred square is 3” x 3” from point to point across diamond.

Yarn A: 460 yards fingering weight yarn
Yarn B: 88 to 175 yards fingering weight...

About this Design:
Much of the vegetation in the Burnt Cape Ecological Reserve in Newfoundland is comprised of low growing plants, only a few inches high. The pointed “branches” of the plant shown in this picture reminded me of a stitch pattern I had once seen. After searching through numerous stitch dictionaries I finally found the stitch pattern used for the main body of this shawl. I wanted a border that carried through the eyelets from the main pattern yet had a softer feel. The cable twist in the edging design has an organic feel that leant itself naturally to this application.

Pattern is 5 pages.

The geometric design used in this stole has always reminded me of elements found in decorative ironwork. After using the stitch pattern for my Gridwork Scarf, I knew I wanted to explore it further in a stole and began looking at combining lace patterns to create a deep border. The final result was a design that reminded me of the lacy ironwork found in New Orleans’ famous French Quarter, and thus I named the design Vieux Carré Stole in the city’s honour.

Vieux Carré is a rectangular stole worked in sections. The first edging is knit separately and then stitches are picked up along the length to work the body of the stole. Finally, additional stitches are cast on and the second edging (which is slightly different than the first) is worked, the attached edging effectively casting off the body stitches while the edging is worked.
