A versatile layering piece, Patricia is packed with beautiful details: eye-catching lace leaves gracing the three-quarter sleeves; delicate sprinkling of pretty eyelets; and a crochet lace border providing an extra touch of femininity. The shrug is constructed in two separate halves, each knitted sideways from cuff to center back. The two halves are joined together using three-needle bind off. Pattern also includes instructions for a textured rib border as a knit option.
Decorative cables and bobbles, reminiscent of entwining vines with flowering buds, adorn the Amelie cardigan. The cabling of the fronts continues up to embellish the hood, while that of the back climbs up the left to lend an asymmetrical twist. Knitted with a wonderfully soft and light Aran weight yarn, the generously sized cardigan is delightfully comfortable to wear. The body and sleeves of Amelie are worked flat in separate pieces from the bottom up, making the cabling and compound raglan simple to track.
Decorative cable and bobbles, reminiscent of a sprig of entwining vine with flowering buds, adorns the side of the Amelia cowl and hat. With a moderate slouchy silhouette, the sassy hat is a perfect companion for the toasty cowl. The matching set is knitted seamlessly in the round from the bottom up, and can be easily adjusted in circumference and height.
Combining the beauty of romantic lace and delicately accented stockinette, Olivia offers a feminine and elegant appeal while keeping you warm and cozy. This loop scarf is equally exquisite with tonal or solid color yarn. Alternatively, use complementary colors to accentuate the eye catching lace border for a different flair. Knitted in the round, the loop scarf can be easily adjusted in circumference and height to suit your needs.
Juxtaposing relaxed silhouette with slender sleeves, Angelina perfectly captures effortless sophistication. This trendy oversized cardigan drapes beautifully into an asymmetrical hemline and is flattering for all body shapes. With ribbed cuffs and borders, Angelina is worked from top down in a simple mesh stitch pattern. This flexible pattern allows you to easily customize the look by adjusting the dimensions of the cardigan.
Angela, a crochet version of Angelina is available for purchase separately.
I am excited that my new blog is up, and am happy to introduce my two latest designs in my very first blog post. If you enjoy this blog post and wish to view more of my designs, please see my PATTERNS page or visit my online Ravelry Store for more details.
Iris – fern lace loop scarf
Iris came about when I wanted a simple scarf to loop twice cozily around my neck in one of my favorite colors. To add interest, I decided to embellish the scarf with a lace border in off-white. In the end, I liked the fern lace border so much that I extended it to the remainder of the scarf but in a simpler variation. Though a tad more elaborate than originally planned, the final rendition proved to be more interesting to knit. Above all, it is as beautiful as it is fun to wear.

Irene – floral lace yoke cardigan
Loving the floral lace of Cynthia and Jennifer, I have carried the floral theme into Irene. To complement the beautiful floral lace yoke, a simpler lacy stripe pattern was designed for the rest of the cardigan. Irene by far might be my most favorite pattern as I am planning to make another one with summer yarn. It’ll probably be fun to wear it to the Tulip Festival this spring to see the lovely blooms.
