Meet winter with style in the classic and cozy Brennan Hat. It's so cute, you'll be saying, "Bring on the snow!"

Inspired by a hat I saw on the show "Bones", this beanie will flatter most people. Just imagine hitting the slopes--or the mall--with this classic toque. Knit in the round from the brim up, there is no seaming and minimal weaving-in of ends.

Cute, Cuddly Critters Mittens

With over 6 different "animal face" charts, these chunky-weight mittens (available in 3 sizes) will be a hit with the junior crowd for how fun they are, and with you for their stash-busting effect. Not only that, there is a pattern included for a sewn fleece liner to keep hands extra-toasty in chilly weather.

This pattern was created to raise awareness of the Faith Children Home orphanage project which my husband and I advocate for through Heart4Children Canada. Every time you purchase one of my patterns, you are supporting this cause. However, all proceeds from the sale of this pattern will go towards the orphanage.

 

Graceful Slippers

One of my first designs, these flattering slippers knit up quickly in chunky weight. Short-row shaping and a drawstring bow cause the simple shape to hug the feet, creating a very flattering fit.

View for free on my blog. I will get a PDF version made and posted as soon as I can.

Just Plain Socks

Socks for every body...

I designed this to teach a class to beginners (Yes! BEGINNERS! You CAN knit socks!) There is nothing fancy about these socks--they can be knit BY anyone, FOR anyone.

These socks are knit from the cuff down in two basic ribbing styles. They have an eye-of-partridge Dutch Heel flap, and a classically-decreased toe.

These socks are formulaic in sizing: you can make them for anyone. Sample stitch counts for an adult sock is given throughout.

Choose a fun colourway of sock yarn and dive in--see how fun socks can be!

SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate (for knitting in the round and shaping techniques)

FORMAT: Adobe PDF File, 6 pages. See printing suggestion below.

SIZES: Formulaic, can be made in any size. Example numbers given for a 10" adult foot throughout.

GAUGE: 30-34 stitches = 10 cm/4” over Stockinette stitch. Because of the stretchy rib in these socks, gauge is more forgiving, but adjust your needle if it doesn’t fall within these limits.
