Cables for Two
Two easy, cabled scarves -- no cable needles required -- knit up quickly in soft bulky weight yarn, or scale to other yarn weights. Both versions sport neat rolled edges.

Celebration Bags
A little glitz, a little texture, and a little companion for your next celebration. In three styles: envelope bag (shown in ivory), shoulder bag (shown in blues), and pouch (shown in orange multi). The focus is on simple, contemporary design with gorgeous materials, so you can relax and enjoy the process!

It's In The Bag
Interesting short-row shaping and three options for finishing make this a fun and versatile pattern. We give detailed instructions for the versions pictured, but don't let that stop you from taking off on your own!

Cool Socks to Knit for Warm Weather
Sock knitting isn’t just for wooly winter. These short tennis shoe or sandal socks are worked in a soft cotton blend to get your warm-weather toes tapping in no time! Four designs are included in the pattern.

Funky Punky Leg Warmers
These colorful and comfy leg warmers will showcase your playful, fun-loving side and brighten your world! Easy color work. In one size, to work in a worsted wt. wool or blend.

Sock Basics
If you can knit and purl, you can make socks. Clear instructions and on-line videos of the tricky bits will help you create a wardrobe of basic adult socks to wear with Birkenstocks, clogs, or boots. Six variations, all knitted top-down with traditional heel and gusset shaping.

Dick and Jane
A cap for him (yes, with convertible ear flaps) and a bonnet for her, in retro 50's styling reminiscent of my own early years. With matching mitts (size S are thumbless). Felted for extra warmth and durability in three sizes: S (infant), M (baby), and L (toddler - pre-school).

Polar Baby Caps
Make one, or all four, soft, stylin' hats to keep your tot's head warm when the weather turns cool. Sport or fingering wt yarn. Three sizes x two gauges = six sizes to fit children of all ages.

Skipper and Crew
A sailor's middy and a boldly striped T, to pair with a skirt and playday shorts. Top with a traditional sailor's hat. Shipshape and comfortable in medium wt cotton. In three sizes: 2T, 3T, and 4T.

Toasty Tots
You'll have toasty tots on the nippiest autumn days or on the windiest days of early spring in these wool jackets with optional cuffs and hoods. Felting provides extra warmth and wind resistance. In four sizes: 6-9 mo., 12 mo., 18 mo., and 24 mo.

Tulip Hat
Based on one of our most popular Li' l Sunhats, this felted version includes ear flaps for cold-weather wear. In three sizes: S, M, and L.

Chook and Mitts
Keep him snug and warm with this hand-knit set. Make them in wool to stay warm and dry in any winter weather. Knit in worsted wt, in three sizes.

Essential Shell and Tank
Options abound for these wardrobe basics: two necklines, two lengths, knit flat or in the round. In cotton it's a little something for summer; in a luxury fiber (cashmere? silk?) pair it with a suit; or choose a fiber with a little sparkle for a festive occasion. Worsted wt natural fibers, synthetics or blends. In five sizes: XS (30), S (34), M (38), L (42), and XL (46).

Garden Vest
Budding posies perched atop a lattice fence provide surface interest and a bit of whimsy to this open-front vest. When it's too hot for a sweater, this soft layer will add a touch of color and polish to your warm-weather favorites. Medium wt. cotton in four sizes:
S (38), M (40), L (44), and XL (46). (Allow at least 4" ease when selecting size.)


My Favorite Cardi-again
I wanted a sweater that would feel as comfortable as wearing one of my big brother's sweaters, but look a bit more ladylike and pulled-together. A generously oversized hug of a jacket to layer over anything and everything. Pockets? - a must, for me. Add to the mix some easy "cabled" detailing to make it fun to knit and fun to wear, and you have My Favorite Cardi-again. (You'll wear it again and again!) Sizes S/M (44"), M/L (48"), and L/XL (52").

Stripe it Rich
Choose a main color, a high-contrast second color, and a fun yarn that incorporates elements of both, and watch the magic happen as you create this easy, side-to-side, seed stitch vest. In five sizes: XS(30), S(34), M(38), L(42), and XL(46) .

Swinging the Blues
I-cord piping adds definitive punch to this flattering short take on a swing coat, to work up quickly in a heavy worsted yarn. Not feeling especially blue? Make it in yourfavorite color! In five sizes: XS(30), S(34), M(38), L(42), and XL(46).

Triangulation
A fast and interesting knit, this unusual vest, constructed of bi-directional triangles, will accessorize anything from your favorite jeans to your little black skirt. Three lengths, and seven sizes: S (36" & 38"), M (40" & 42"), and L (44", 46", & 48"), to knit in a bulky wt. yarn.

Twipple Tweed Vest
Three tweedy yarns and an all-over tweed stitch pattern combine to create this casual-day topper. A knitted-on I-cord trim and rustic buttons complete the look. Slightly oversized fit in XS(34"), S(36"), M(40"), L(44"), and XL(48").

Condo Poncho Olé
Two ideas from the 70s are revisited here. Using bulky yarn and condo knitting (alternating rows on a large needle and a small needle) you can make this "must have" accessory in a jiffy. Average and Upsized.

Easy Eyelet Poncho
Asymmetric styling updates this poncho from 70s cliche to n-o-w. Choose a worsted (medium) wt yarn in wool, cotton, synthetic or a blend. Garter stitch with easy shaping and eyelet detailing. Average and Upsized.

Niña
From pre-school to pre-teen, a classic poncho to make for the niña (young girl) you favor. Choose a heavy worsted yarn, or work several lighter wt yarns together. In four sizes: XS (3T-4T), S (5-6), M (7-8), or L (10-12).
