A basis rhuanna but with a TWIST! Hidden shaping, easy to learn knit/purl pattern—the Twisted Rhuanna is knit with DK to fingering weight yarn (about 2200 yards.)
The Tiered Shawl is knit with laceweight yarn. It can be worked in several colors as shown or a single color. Our model measures 46" wrist-to-wrist and 16" deep. Not a beginner pattern but plenty of style and plain knitting!
|Color Block Bag|
The COLOR BLOCK BAG is a felted bag knit in garter stitch. The front and back of these bags are knit in four sections. Color changes are made in the first section.l The front and back are then joined with a gusset. An edging is then applied to the top and the strap is knit. Many different color combinations could be knit. Our directions for this worsted weight bag show the color changes as pictured.
|Charm Work Bag|
The CHARM WORK BAG is a really large knit bag inspired by vintage "work" bags we have seen at flea markets. The knitted pattern in worsted weight yarn creates a circle design where embellishments such as buttons, charms, pins, etc could be attached. The pattern includes written and charted instructions, as well as, directions for fabric lining and attaching a purchased handle.
MISTER BEN is a knitted "copy" of the famous sock monkey dolls many of us grew up with. If you have knit a pair of socks you have all the skills necessary to knit a sock monkey. The pattern for Mister Ben is written so you can use any weight yarn along with needles appropriate to your chosen yarn. The size of the monkey you knit will be determined by the type of yarn and needles you choose. We have knit this toy in bulky worsted, DK, sport, and very fine sock yarn. Our favorite monkey so far is the one we have knit with the self-patterning sock yarn that is available today-he is very colorful (sorry no picture available.)
The HOUNDSTOOTH CLUTCH is a knit bag (not felted) using simple stranded knitting techniques. It is knit from the top to the bottom using a worsted weight yarn. A graph is included for the stranded knitting along with lining instructions. This can be a very chic purse. We think it is particularly nice to travel with as it will pack easily.
The KNIT/PURL BAG is a large knitted bag with a stranded design that surely will let everyone you see know what your passion is! Dowels are inserted in the knitted in casing at the top to give your bag structure. We like the purchased leather handles (resource information included in pattern) or you can knit your own strap from our directions. This bag is knit with a light worsted weight yarn (5sts/in).
We have revived one of our earliest patterns for the knitted backpack and added a purse variation. Use a worsted weight yarn and circular needle to knit this purse/backpack. The ingenious top closure makes for an outstanding finished bag. This is a great place to practice stranded knitting, or, if you like a solid color, follow the charted directions for a textured knit/purl design. Either way you will enjoy knitting this bag and learning some new techniques.
This is another "revival" pattern. One of our first lace efforts and still a good one, MOUNTAIN PINES is a square shawl. This shawl begins by knitting a center square; stitches are picked up around the center and the border is worked out to the edge where the lace edging is then applied. You can knit this with fingering weight yarn for a really large shawl or lace weight for a more traditional shawl. Row-by-row directions and charts are included.
BOUNDARY WATERS is another "revival" pattern. It is a square shawl that is knit from the center increasing at four points until you reach the outer edge where a lace edging is then applied. We have included both row-by-row and charted directions for you to knit this timeless shawl. Lace weight yarn is suggested.
The SETESDAL STOLE is a rectangular shawl that is knit the long way following a chart or the row-by-row directions. When the basic rectangle is complete, stitches are picked up around the outside perimeter, and a lace edging is applied. This shawl was inspired by the setesdal stranded knitting designs often seen in ski sweaters. Lace weight yarn is recommended.
Just the garment to wear over a sleeveless or strapless dress, this little shrug was inspired by a crocheted garment Ann found in China. The MATINEE SHRUG begins at the center back on double point (changing to circular needles) until a square is made. The sleeves are picked up on each side and knit down. Finally a small border is worked all the way around to pull it all together. This shrug works up quickly in worsted weight yarn.
