I created this page so that the free knitting patterns I’ve written up are easy to find (instead of getting lost in all my knitting projects). You can also find these on my Ravelry Designer page. For all of the free patterns, click on the thumbnail to be taken immediately to the pdf.

My grandmother was an avid knitter. I remember receiving handmade sweaters for birthdays and Christmas when I was little. More than anything else though, I remember her knitting socks. The same socks every time.
These were inspired in part by Jason and in part by my friend Marie (and her lovely pink scarf). They are lobster claw mittens that are perfect for cycling – you can reach the brake without taking the rest of your hand off the handle!
This was inspired by overly air conditioned offices and hot summer days. I still like having my neck be warm in the cool breeze, but don’t need a heavy duty wool cowl to keep me warm.
