Arosa Slouchy Lace Hat

I’ve been working on a few hats to be ready for when the weather turns, and I’m so excited to share them with you today. Each one has something unique to it, whether it’s lacework, brambles, cabling, or simple knits and purls. The Arosa Slouchy Lace Hat was inspired by the flames and the smoke you’re bewitched by when you’re sitting around a bonfire in the fall. I wanted to capture that sweeping feeling in a hat. It has a… Read more »

Catalina Beach Sweater by Kristin Jones

I am so excited to introduce the Catalina Beach Sweater! I almost gave up on summer knitting, but I was inspired at the end of July to do one more beach sweater – and this is perfect because it easily transitions for the fall season. The Catalina Beach Sweater is a great transitional piece for your wardrobe. Designed to be worn on those cooler, summer nights, the Catalina is knit with cotton yarn and designed with lace eyelets and chevron… Read more »

Rockaway Cardigan

You may have seen me mentioning that I’ve been working on this cardigan for the last few weeks (months?) – anyway, it’s finally here and for sale!   The Rockaway Cardigan is perfect for those cooler summer nights when you’re not ready to leave the beach (or the bonfire), and it’s still a little warm for that hoodie you’ve got stashed for emergencies. This is for you! You can still look cute, summery, and keep warm.   This is made… Read more »

I just wanted to let you know that I’m featured over on the Solopreneur Business Network podcast. I’m talking knitting, creativity, and starting my own business. I was also asked my favorite quote, and I really butchered the Ira Glass quote above, but I wanted to include it for you here. I’m pretty the quote was not originally intended for knitters, but it applies to knitting and, really, to anything you do. In other news, last Friday I was challenged to… Read more »

You might have noticed that I quietly released a new pattern a few weeks ago. Siren Seafoam is a fun, cropped beach top (22” long) designed to cover you up, but keep you cool when you’re out during the hot summer months. The top is knit in the round from the bottom up, with a simple lace repeat for the design. The pattern is written out with instructions, no chart. My quiet little release was picked up by Buzzfeed as… Read more »

I’m so excited to show you these gloves! I saw this pattern in a blanket and I thought it would be so fun for gloves – or maybe a skirt at some point? – and I set about creating a pattern for them. I hit a few roadblocks when I first started trying to convert this pattern into gloves, but something about airplanes and flying really does it for the knitting part of my brain because it all came together… Read more »

Slouchy Lace Hat Pattern

I’m really excited to let you know about a project I’ve been working on over the last few months: a slouchy lace hat knitting pattern! I had some super bulky yarn that I was trying to use up, and I decided it would make a great winter hat. Because I wanted it to be slightly more intricate than a standard knit hat, as lovely as they are, I settled on a lace pattern and set about designing it. I’m so… Read more »

The Basketweave Coffee Cozy PDF can be downloaded here. (Or click here to have it emailed to you.) The PDF for the XO cable cozy pattern can be downloaded here. (Or click here to have it emailed to you.) Cozies, especially knit cozies, are incredibly cute and darling, but in a way that almost makes me hate them. You know, like when a dessert is too sweet? They’re impossible to remember to put on your mug (until you burn yourself, of course), but when… Read more »
