Boxwood Shawl

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Gansy-inspired`double-diamond panel runs the length of this garter stitch shawl. Boxwood is knit on the bias in worsted weight yarn, at a larger than usual gauge, to create a large wrap that drapes. True to the designer’s predilection, Boxwood looks good on both sides. The double diamond pattern is charted only.

The Boxwood Shawl is worked on the bias, beginning with a 2 stitch cast on and increasing by one stitch every right side row. This triangular shawl is deeply bordered by garter stitch.

Tickle Inn Scarf

The Gros Morne colour way from the Canada 150 National Parks Collection by Fleece Artist inspired the Tickle Inn Scarf pattern.
The easy, textured stitch pattern produces a wonderfully squishy and warm scarf that looks good on both sides. The Tickle Inn Scarf edge technique creates a finish-free, rounded edge that suits the stitch pattern exceptionally well. Handpainted yarns are a wonderful choice for this scarf.

I visited the fantastic Tickle Inn at Cape Onion, Nfld only once but it, and the magnificent Gros Morne Park remain travel highlights. Alas, for travellers to Newfoundland, the Tickle Inn has reverted to a family home.

Yesterday’s Sunrise

 

Yesterday’s Sunrise is a cowl pattern that celebrates hand painted yarn. The original cowl was created in Fleece Artist Merino Slim National Parks Collection Yarn, Thousand Islands, Ontario colour way. The easy textured stitch pattern produces a wonderfully squishy and warm cowl that looks good on both sides. Wear it either side out.

Lyn Gemmell, hand dyer at Shelridge Yarns, asked me about my favourite colours. I sent her a photo, the glorious sunrise over Lake Ontario and Lyn hand painted yarn especially for this pattern.

Frenchman’s Bay Cape

Frenchman’s Bay is a reversible cape, in worsted weight yarn, worked in the round, top down, from the cowl neckline to the Gansey textured knit and purl body.

The cape is cast on provisionally and worked in a knit 5, purl 1 rib that widens to a knit 15, purl 1 rib past the shoulder. A knit and purl stitch pattern creates the Gansey-inspired diamond shapes of the body. I-cord cast-off finishes both the hem and the neckline.

Carefully weaving in ends ensures that the cape may be worn either right or wrong side out… your choice.

The cape is available in two sizes, small/medium and medium/large.

Saturday Bread Baker’s Mitts

Felted Saturday Bread Baker’s Mitts were inspired by the thick cloth baker’s mitts historically worn hanging from bakers’ wrists ready to pull hot pans from ovens. They are fast and easy to slip on, work well as temporary hot pads, and are fun to swing around your wrists.
