New pattern: Candela shawl

Combining cable and lace stitches is always an exciting adventure for me. This shawl features a decorative cable and rib body and a border that catches the eye instantly. The cables of the body are like small brooks flowing into a river, they twist and turn until they become one of the defining elements of the border. These big cables are separated by a mesh texture with a touch of floral folk art.

Candela is a crescent-shaped shawl. The pattern contains instructions for two sizes, however, it’s possible to adjust the size by simply working more or less repeats of the body pattern. The body will still flow into the border smoothly, without having to change anything in the pattern.

The pattern contains charted and written, clear, easy-to-follow instructions. The pattern was both tech edited and tested. Pattern layout by graphic designer Eva Benke.

New collection: Off the Canvas

Have you ever wondered how you could translate your favourite paintings into other artistic languages? What would they be like as photography, music or… knitwear? 

The three crescent shawls of this collection were all inspired by famous paintings. Naturally, my goal was not to make shawls that looked exactly like those paintings but to use them as kind of a compass when deciding on colours and creating texture.

The Off the Canvas collection is available with a 20% discount until all three shawls are released with the coupon code “preorder” on ravelry.

Come on, let's Twist Again

I'm sure a lot of knitters were eagerly waiting for the Deep Fall issue of Knitty to go live; now it's here and I have a pattern in it! 

Twist Again is a sweet little shawlette using a DK weight single yarn that I spun myself but it can easily be sustituted with commercial yarns.

You can find more information and the FREE pattern on Knitty.

The colourful leaves of Autumn

Slowly but surely, the weather is getting colder and summer is over. Autumn has been my favourite season for a while, I love it when the leaves turn yellow and red and brown, the sunshine in September when it's still nice and warm but not boling anymore and I don't even mind the rainy weather either, as long as we don't have way too much of it. At least I get to wear my shawls and hats and mitts more often ;) 

Being a fan of Autumn, I really enjoyed designing the Hazel Collection last year. If you would like to knit a piece from this collection, I have good news for you!  

The Hazel Collection is now available with a brand new pattern layout and new pictures. 20% off through September 30, 2014 with the coupon code "hazel20" on ravelry.

Fairbanks Cowl in Interweave Knits Gifts 2014

I have a pattern in the holiday issue of Interweave Knits! :) I love, love, love cables so when I designed the Fairbanks Cowl, I played with cables that are related to each other to create a harmonious and interesting texture. The chunky yarn makes it a really quick knit.
