Published Designs with The Knitter
Tormentil lace and cable shawlette, issue 124 May 2018
Super-long and draping, this shawl design has a shallow crescent shape. It’s achieved by casting on a small number of stitches, gradually increasing to the central section, then decreasing again slowly. A pretty stitch pattern is used along one length of the shawl, while the opposite edge has a lacy border.
The design is complemented by the use of a hand-dyed yarn from The Yarn Collective.
Weald, issue 110 April 2017
This was my biggest achievement yet - A beautiful cable pattern to both the front and back of the Weald poncho makes this a stunner! There are cabled braids in the side panels and this is where all the shaping takes place. One size only.
Sloane Square , issue 104 November 2016
This minimalist cushion shows off the intricacies of cabling. Use bright contrasting colours to create a statement piece or, as I did, knit in two shades of grey for a sophisticated look. The centre front panel is worked by knitting a standard ribbed cable with a larger number of stitches than normal and by working the cable away from the two side panels, thus forming triangular holes at each side of the cable twist. These holes are filled in with stocking stitch, worked in a contrasting colour and perpendicular to the cable.
Marrakesh Bolster, issue 103 October 2016
i really enjoyed designing and knitting this cool bolster. My original idea was to knit it in blue and yellow on a white background to try and mimic Moroccan tiles but I think these wicked colours look better!
Knit in Yarn Stories yarn, all the separate slip stitch patterns are my own original ones.
Reflections Tunic Top, issue 101 August 2016
My latest design to be included in the August 2016, edition of The Knitter is "Reflections" tunic top.
Knit in beautiful blue 4ply silk-merino yarn with small beads added at the bust line and the bottom of the tunic.
This was a fun knit to design, utilising lace and cable work (which I both love) and incorporating a little beading (my 1st time ever!)
Lois cross over top, edition 99 June 2016
I was really pleased when I was asked by the editor of Simply Knitting to design for their sister magazine "The Knitter". The Lois cable / lace cross over top was my 1st design for them. A clever constructed design which tested my sewing patience but was well worth the effort.
