Similar in shape to my Starshower cowl, but in worsted weight yarn, Adama is a quick-to-knit shawl-cowl hybrid. Named for the Latin word for diamond (as well as, yes, the captain of Battlestar Galactica), it is shaped as a shawl, but the second half is worked in the round to create the illusion of a semi-circular shawl worn wrapped around the neck without ends to worry about tying. The majority of the cowl is done in a simple diamond lace pattern, with bands of Stockinette and Garter stitch breaking things up. Using a worsted weight wool- cashmere blend on large needles gives this cowl a cozy, rustic appearance and cuts the knitting time to practically nothing.

Aeon is a modern vest made in a deep, eternal blue. It is constructed from the top down, beginning with the twisted ribbed collar, after which the fronts and back are worked separately until they are joined at the underarms. The twisted ribbing continues down the edges of the fronts, which are designed to be worn open and draping. The fronts and back are split again under the waist to make room for pockets, the linings for which are picked up and created later on. Aeon is simple and sleek and infinitely wearable.

Aeris (Latin for copper) is an asymmetrical triangular wrap that takes full advantage of the luxurious yarn with which it was knit. Eyelets, textured stitches, and garter stitch pop in this merino and cashmere blend, which is so soft and light that it’s difficult not to wear it at all times. Strategically placed increases give this shawl its off-kilter triangular appearance, which is long enough to wrap comfortably around ones torso without too much length at the center point, or too many ends dangling in the way. The simple stitch patterns keep the knitting fun and, in worsted weight yarn, this is quite a quick knit as well.

Fun Pattern Mods:
For a stripey shawl, use a different color for Rows 10-12 in each section as well as for the bind off. You can also add an i-cord bind off to emphasize a contrasting color at the edge of the shawl.

With all the gorgeous textures and stitches filling the pattern books on my shelves, it’s still those classics, Stockinette and Garter, that I come back to time and again. Amande is my attempt to use these old friends of mine to create a garment with interesting lines and a unique shape. And because there aren’t any fancy stitches to keep track of, there are some fun techniques in there to keep you on your toes: i-cord bind offs, applied i-cord worked as you go, short rows, various cast-ons, pockets, and a big, chunky cable up the back.

Anthos (Greek for flower) is a Scandinavian-inspired cowl with a lovely floral colorwork pattern from Mary Jane Mucklestone’s 150 Scandinavian Motifs. The cowl is knit in the round from end to end and twisted before the two ends are joined. Solid blocks of color break up the flower sections to give you a little break from the stranded colorwork and to create a fun color-and-pattern blocked look. While slightly more involved than Cruces, Flores’ colorwork is still simple and easy to memorize – and it gives you a pop of Scandinavian style without going overboard.

Named for the famous Roman road, Appia is a lacey, light cowl-shawl hybrid with a pretty picot bind off at the edge. It is shaped like a semi-circular shawl with evenly spaced increase rows, but is worked partially in the round, so it can be worn as a cowl without any dangling ends (a shape similar to my Starshower and Adama designs). The all-over Roman Stripe stitch pattern is simple to execute and creates a knitted fabric that is both lacey and highly textured, for maximum impact. Appia comes in two sizes, each taking less than a skein of sock yarn, and is quick enough to make one for yourself and for a gift!

Aquae is a modern tank with stripes in two different aquatic tones. The back sports a subtle racerback and the high waist gives rise to an A-line shape that skims fluidly around the hips. Knit from the top down and mostly in one piece, Aquae requires no seaming and works up quickly with simple shaping. An increase chart helps you keep track of shaping when two sets are going on at the same time. Worn layered over a cotton tank or under a light cardigan, Aquae is an effortless piece for summer days and nights.

Perfect for Fall! Asteria is a classic cardigan with set-in sleeves worked seamlessly from the bottom up. A thick lace trim with an almost cabled appearance lines the entire piece. In a gorgeous bulky yarn that you won’t want to put down, Asteria knits up quickly. This cardigan can be worn with dresses or jeans, pearls or sneakers, and will flatter a variety of shapes.

Charts as well as written instructions are provided for the lace. A diagram outlining the placement of all shaping is also included.

Chic, yet versatile – the Atmos Cardigan is a longer, tunic-length garment that adds the warmth of an extra layer in effortless style. Worked from the bottom up in one piece to the armholes, Atmos is then split to work the front and back panels separately. The button bands are worked simultaneously with the rest of the cardigan while the pockets are placed in the center of the Diamond Cables running up the fronts. The slightly puffed cap sleeves are picked up from the armholes and are shaped with short rows. Finally, Atmos is finished off with a folded ribbed collar.

Aurelia is a simple a-line shell with a nautical flair. It is knit from the bottom up mostly in one piece with only minimal seaming, and the collar and ties are picked up and shaped with short rows after the body is complete. The long body gives a modern feel and allows for the garter stripes at the bottom to peek out from under your jacket. Knit with 100% silk, this is a garment that can easily be taken from day to night.

Reminiscent of the colors of ocean mist in the early morning, Auri (Ionic Greek for breeze) is a large wrap with a simple three-color striping pattern that creates a beautiful gradient. The wrap is knit in Garter Stitch from the top down and is shaped with alternating increase rows. Short rows help give Auri height without too much length across the wingspan and the resulting shape is crescent-like, but asymmetrical, which gives it a unique look and allows it to be worn easily without long ends on both sides. In Baah’s fingering weight merino, silk, and cashmere blend, Aspen, Auri is lighter than air and luxurious both on and off the needles.

Beurre is cozy and sweet like the butter toffee colored yarn that inspired it. This crescent wrap is knit from the bottom up with a simple Garter Eyelet pattern and a ruffle as border, and short rows in Garter Stitch creating its shape.

Originally published in Tanis Fiber Arts’ Year in Colour Club, Cachou (a little candy used to decorate sweets) is a delicious springtime cowl knit in a simple lace pattern with your choice of either rolled or scalloped edges. The pattern is written for two weights of yarn, Aran or worsted weight and fingering weight, and comes in three sizes: a standard cowl, an infinity scarf that can be worn draped or wrapped once around the neck, and an even longer infinity scarf that can be worn draped, wrapped once for a loose, lacey cowl, or wrapped twice for a frothy confection. This is a quick knit – all versions of the cowl but the Large Aran weight version take just one skein of yarn – and it is lovely in variegated hues.

Add some menswear inspired flair to your outfit! This tie comes in two different versions: a Garter Stitch tie knit flat in chunky silk and wool yarn and a Stockinette Stitch tie knit in the round in some beautiful Microfiber Ribbon. The Garter Stitch version is a quick project that won’t take but one or two evenings. And while its Stockinette Stitch counterpart will take a bit longer, it will also let you practice such techniques as provisionally casting on and knitting in the round using Magic Loop.

The gorgeous images of Saturn from NASA’s Cassini mission struck me from the beginning – the brightly colored rings against our galaxy’s dark night sky are absolutely stunning. This cardigan is my nod to those images. Knit from the top down in one piece Cassini features bright, raised “rings” that encircle a round yoke on a neutral background. Originally published as the Saturn Cardigan in Knitscene’s Summer 2013 issue, the Cassini Cardigan includes a wider range of sizes as well as updated and additional pattern instructions.

Inspired by the giant cowls on last year’s runways, Cloudy Sunday is a wearable garment that still retains a bit of that drama. Knit mostly in one piece from the bottom up in bulky yarn, this is quick to knit, and versatile to wear, too. Pair it with a belt or leave on its own; layer it over a long-sleeved tee or under a jacket. This is a great sweater for those transitional months and will keep you both cozy and fabulous on many a cloudy day.

Coppelia is a substantial shawl-cowl hybrid with pretty stripes and simple construction. It begins as a semi- circular shawl but is joined to work in the round to create a cowl with the appearance of a shawl wrapped a few times around the neck. Simple, clean Stockinette stripes knit up quickly in two skeins of a worsted or aran weight yarn, and an i-cord bind off nicely finishes the bottom edge. Pretty and soft around the neck, Coppelia can also be pulled down over the shoulders in chillier climes.

Note: Coppelia comes in just one size, but the width can easily be altered by changing the number of stitches added in the increase rows after joining to work in the round.

Dewberry is a sweet and simple single-skein shawl-cowl hybrid. Designed to use up a small amount of worsted or aran weight yarn, this piece is shaped like a semi-circular shawl but is worked mostly in the round to resemble the look of a small shawl worn wrapped around the neck. Dewberry utilizes purled stripes and the simplest of lace patterns to give it texture and interest. It comes in two sizes and can also easily be enlarged by using a heavier weight of yarn. This cowl whips up in no time at all, so if the weather changes one morning and you find yourself needing something new to keep you warm, Dewberry will be ready for you by that afternoon.

Thick, defined stripes and short rows, all worked in Garter Stitch, form roads and pathways that take the knitter on a journey of different knitting directions. The finished wrap is rectangular, but with a much thicker section on one side. Knitting this wrap in fingering weight yarn on larger-than-usual needles creates a fabric lightweight enough to mold it around ones body either as a scarf or an asymmetrical wrap, showcasing whichever stripes the knitter prefers.

Glacerie (a French ice cream shop) is a long and narrow triangular shawl worked in a pretty stitch pattern embellished with garter stitch scallops. Two sizes are included; the smaller, shawlette size (shown in vanilla and lime) is perfect for wrapping around the neck and wearing as a scarf, and the larger size (in green with vanilla and raspberry) allows the knitter to play a bit with color and use up any leftover sock yarn that might be on hand. Glacerie is pretty and fresh and perfect for the springtime air.

Glacerie comes with written instructions as well as charts for the lace pattern.

Ios (Ancient Greek for dawn) is a lightweight beanie with a simple lace brim and just the least bit of slouch. The hat begins with the chevron-like lace brim, which is knit flat, then folded in half to create its three dimensional appearance. The rest of the hat is worked up from the brim with the yarn held double stranded. This is a quick knit that is a perfect use of a single skein of soft laceweight yarn and provides just the right amount of warmth on chilly mornings, as rosy-fingered dawn is making her appearance.

Lace instructions are provided in written and charted form, and a photo tutorial has been provided for joining the brim.

And if you don’t have an ombré yarn on hand, the shawl would also be quite pretty made with different skeins in different colors, as long as they are the same weight.

Janus (the Roman god of transitions and gates) is a simple cardigan with an interesting keyhole detail in the back. It is knit in one piece from the bottom up in stockinette stitch with continuous ribbing along the fronts. At the armholes, all stitches are bound off, then picked up again to create a subtle line where the keyhole begins. Ribbing outlines the keyhole opening and overlaps at the top and a few increases and decreases help form the opening shape. After the raglan yoke is complete, the front ribbing is continued for a few inches, then wrapped around the back neck and seamed down. This is an effortless piece that makes a big impact.

The Jeera Shawl-Cowl is a hybrid piece. It is knit like a cowl, but designed to look like a semi-circular shawl draped around the neck. It is worked in alternating bands of garter stitch and a very simple textured openwork stitch pattern and begins as a shawl knit flat. When the top edge reaches the appropriate length, the two ends are joined and worked in the round to the end. A picot border finishes the piece.
This shawl-cowl is substantial and drapey, making it a versatile piece to wear. Bunch it up around the neck or pull down over the shoulders for a capelet look.

Kallisti (most beautiful, a title of Artemis) is a huntress-inspired shawl-cowl hybrid. Part shawl, part cowl, part semi-circle, part triangle, Kallisti begins as a flat semi-circular shawl, but is soon after joined to work in the round and its shaping is switched to form a triangle. The resulting piece is a cowl that drapes nicely around the neck and resembles a wrapped shawl with large-scale bobbles along the border. In bulky weight yarn, Kallisti knits up very quickly, and is easily adapted if you’d like more (or less) length or circumference to cover you as you aim your arrow.

Keravnos (Greek for “thunderbolt”) is a triangular shawl that combines two simple lace patterns. Zigzag Lace Trellis and Arrowhead Lace (both from Barbara Walker’s Treasury of Knitting Patterns) arch like lightening in two different directions and together create a modern and geometric piece. The shawl is knit from the top down, starting at the center of the top, straight edge. Keravnos takes only one skein (325 yards) of Tess’ Designer Yarns Kitten, a cashmere and silk blend that is heaven to wear. And because Keravnos is knit from the top down, it is easily enlarged with a second skein.

The pattern includes both charts and written directions for the lace.

Knit in pieces and seamed, the Kimono Wrap pattern features set-in, belled sleeves, turned hems, a wraparound collar, and a linen stitch sash.

Named for the Greek word for “doll”, this double-breasted babydoll sweater is flattering and just sweet enough not to give you a toothache. The fitted, empire-waist bodice is knit in pieces and seamed, then stitches are picked up from the cast-on edges and the skirt is worked down in one piece from there. The fronts and back are split to make room for pockets, which are worked as you go. Wear with your favorite skirt or with straight leg jeans under boots for a modern look.

Luna Viridis is a deeply textured cowl worked up in Luna Grey Fiber Arts’ gorgeous viridian green colorway. It begins as a semi-circular shawl with a Stockinette Stitch center worked flat, and is then joined and worked in the round to create a circular piece that mimics a shawlette wrapped around the neck. Little green crescent moons adorn the cowl, encircling the majority of it, and are separated by simple bands of Garter Stitch. Using just one skein of a pretty sock yarn, this is a fun knit, and a great way to add a pop of color and texture to any outfit.

Lunaris (Latin for lunar, after its moon-like shape) is a simple crescent-shaped shawl with just a bit of ruffle. Worked from the top down in Stockinette stitch with a gradient stripe pattern, it can be done monochromatically – in two yarns with similar weights but different textures – or with more distinct stripes. Wrapping it around the neck creates a scarf with cascading ruffles; draping it as a wrap really shows off the stripe pattern – either way this is a lovely light piece to wear as the seasons change.

The twinkling stripes encircling the yoke and sleeve cuffs provide endless possibilities for play with color, and are a perfect way for an adventurous beginner to dip his or her toe into the colorwork pool. The sweater is constructed from the top down, in the round, with (optional) short rows lowering the front collar in a flattering way and subtle waist shaping providing for a nice fit.

Mielie can be worn all snapped up, barely fastened with the collar falling open, or all open for a more relaxed look – the use of snaps allows you to choose the best placement after trying the finished vest on.

Nimbus is a cloudy soft, oversized cowl made up of simple stitches and interesting construction. The cowl is knit sideways, from end to end, in simple knit one, purl one ribbing. Short rows give the bottom tier a bit more length so, when the cowl is worn, it remains snug around the neck, but flares out to cover the chest and shoulders as well – like an infinity scarf wrapped double, but in just one piece. When the knitting is done, the ends are joined and the edges are folded to the inside for a double-thick, cozy piece that you’ll want to keep around you as those storm clouds roll in.

Nola, Latin for bell, is a simple cloche that can be worked in a single skein of either bulky (hot pink) or worsted weight (grey) yarn. In fact, adjusting this pattern is so easy that you could really work it in any weight of yarn that you’d like. Nola features a simple but striking twist formed with one cable row, and a rolled brim that is easily adjusted to change the length of the hat. Spiral decreases finish the top of the crown. Wear this pretty cloche as is, or dress it up with a brooch. And if you’re really feeling fun, turn that twist to the front and wear it as a turban.

Peponi is a shawl-shaped scarf – mimicking a slice of melon, the dent at the top wraps perfectly around the neck and the tapered ends are tied easily at the front. It is knit from the top down, so you can make it longer or shorter as needed to use up every last bit of that favorite skein of sock yarn, or any weight of yarn you please!

Worked mostly in Cellular Stitch, a simple 3-stitch, 4-row lace pattern, Peponi opens up into an even simpler lace edging and a crochet-like bind off, which creates pretty “wings” that hang down in the front. The overall effect is that of a light, frothy scarf, but in a Merino wool, Peponi will still keep you warm.

Simple, soothing garter stitch meets stripes and fun colors. We’ve heard this story before. But Phosphoro combines the well-known and well-loved garter stripe duo with an interesting construction that creates the perfect triangular shawl shape and intersecting lines. Because there are no stitch or row-count-specific patterns to worry about, Phosphoro is very easily modified to suit any weight of yarn, and instructions are included in the pattern to make those mods as simple as can be. Grab a set of four colors – neons, neutrals, gradient, anything – and have fun creating and wearing this simple and striking wrap.

With a simple body and generous collar, Pommier is an opportunity to play with color in a new way. After knitting the Stockinette stitch body from the top down with a subtle racerback, stitches are picked up from around the vest’s opening and a cushy collar is created with two-color Brioche Stitch, a stitch that can be intimidating to some but is much easier than it seems. A tutorial has been provided for those unfamiliar with Brioche Stitch and, with no shaping within the collar, the stitch can be practiced without worrying about stitch counts or additional techniques.

It has been brought to my attention that a very similar shawl design was published by Diana Rozenshteyn a few months before Rioja. Palessie features the same lace in a similar shape, as well as a picot BO. I have written with Diana and assured her that these similarities are purely coincidental. Beyond the similarities, Palessie is much wider and a crescent shape, constructed in a different way. If you like Rioja, I encourage you to check out Palessie to see if you prefer its crescent shape and construction.

Sidere (Latin for starlight) is a lightweight asymmetrical shawl worked up in the lovely Starbright yarn from Luna Grey Fiber Arts. Knit from the top down beginning with just a few stitches, Sidere’s crescent shape is created with increases placed in every row and its asymmetry is the result of short rows worked in Stockinette stitch between bands of a very simple textured stitch pattern. The stitch pattern gives this airy piece a great deal of surface texture that resembles sparkling stars converging on one end of the shawl, and a picot bind off echoes the same texture at the edge. Sidere is a romantic piece that works equally well as a shawl or as a unique scarf.

While designing this shrug, I was inspired by the softness of a single-ply yarn worked in textured Seed Stitch and wanted to echo that feeling in gently curving lines in the garment itself. Short rows were the perfect way to achieve this, so I incorporated them into all horizontal edges of this shrug: the high collar, the bottom hem, and the sleeve cuff. The short rows and sloping edges also give the shrug body, and a bit of soft “puff”. The final piece is a pretty winter garment, chic enough for wearing over party dresses, and cozy enough for cuddling up by the fire afterwards.

A heavier-weight version of this cardigan first appeared in Knitscene’s Winter 2012 issue. You can check out the Snowdrift Shrug...

Starshower is another of the shawl-cowl hybrids that I can’t get enough of lately. It is shaped as a shawl, but mostly worked in the round - so it can be worn as a shawl, but without the ends dangling down. The simple Open Star stitch pattern perfectly complements Anzula’s sparkly fingering weight yarn, Nebula, though the pattern would work just as well with a favorite semi-solid or variegated sock yarn. Sparkle is encouraged, but not required.

If you like Starshower, but want something a bit quicker to knit, check out Adama -- similar in shape, but in worsted weight yarn, the knitting time is practically nothing!

Silk and mohair knit at a loose gauge reminds me of looking through wisps of cloud and mist – the soft glow is apparent from afar, but it’s not until you get up close that you can see distinct shapes and structure.

Versus is about opposites. Take a light and a dark or a neon and a neutral, knit an eyeleted, stripey triangle, then join a thick, perpendicular extension that is a negative of the original pattern. Versus begins with a single stitch and is knit in one piece with two skeins of fingering weight yarn all in garter stitch, save for the rows of eyelets occasionally placed throughout. Simple increases and decreases and one strategically placed cast on form contradicting lines, and the perfect unsymmetrical triangular shape to wrap up in. Notes on modification have been included at the end of the pattern, as well as instructions for a three-color version.

Xenia (the Greek notion of guest friendship) is a textured, striped shawl-cowl hybrid originally created for the {Among Friends} club. Shaped like a semi-circular shawl, but worked partially in the round, Xenia resembles a shawl wrapped around ones neck, but without any ends. The cowl features a slipped stitch stripe pattern that is simple and fun and is striking in stripes and monochrome alike. Taking the equivalent of a single skein of sock yarn, Xenia works up quickly, uses up yarn leftovers beautifully, and adds a great splash of color and texture to an outfit in any season.
