Please note: patterns on this page are all designed and copyrighted by me, and are intended for use by individuals for personal hand-knitting.  Some of my patterns can be adapted for machine knitting, but the only one actually written for machine knitting are my instructions for doing a Feather and Fan pattern.  If you use my patterns for production knitting of goods for sale, please credit me for the pattern.

All pattern files are in PDF format, so you will need to get the Adobe Acrobat PDF Reader– a free download.  Due to patterns being downloaded without payment, I have removed them from my Web hosting service.  I apologize for the inconvenience.  WHEN PAYMENT IS RECEIVED I WILL EMAIL YOUR PATTERN TO THE EMAIL ADDRESS PROVIDED BY PAYPAL IN  YOUR TRANSACTION.  

When you have completed your transaction, PayPal will notify me of your payment, and I will email your pattern to you, usually within an hour or less (except overnight of course).  if you have not received your pattern within a few hours, please email me and let me know. I will confirm your payment and send your email as soon as I can.


Feather-and-Fan Instructions

This one was written specifically for use on a knitting machine.

Now you can make a feather and fan project on any flat-bed knitting machine

This sample shown was knit on the Bond USM (and interrupted by Hurricane Katrina!); I have also used the same technique on an LK-150 machine.

Your instruction set is a 7-page PDF file, with detailed step-by-step instructions (both text and clear graphics) for how to manipulate the stitches in a manner that will allow you to machine knit a project like the one shown.  The exact method and tools will depend on your particular machine, but for any machine you will need a transfer tool that fits your machine.

TO OBTAIN YOUR COPY, PLEASE EMAIL ME DIRECTLY.   I WILL SEND A  PAYPAL INVOICE FOR $7.50 AND WILL EMAIL YOU THE PDF FILE UPON COMPLETION OF YOUR PAYMENT (NOTE: E-CHECK PAYMENTS WILL TAKE 5 DAYS TO CLEAR IN PAYPAL)

Please note:  these instructions are for my personally developed machine knitting technique for manipulating the stitches on a knitting machine, not pattern instructions for a particular pattern.   There are many similar methods for accomplishing similar results on a flat-bed knitting machine.

 


Angel Rae Shawl (hand-knit)


angelRae10 (148K)
(click for larger view)

Lovely lace shawl pattern, with plenty of charts for easy knitting. Designed as a bottom-up shawl, it can be readily converted to a top-down double triangle, or even a center-out square. The original was knitted with less than 900 yards of fingering-weight wool, and measures over 66 inches across and 34 inches top to bottom. Can be knitted longer/wider by simply repeating the chart one or more extra times before knitting the top banner! Or use a worsted weight yarn to make a lovely afghan!

Swirlytop Hats (hand-knit)

swirlySlouch1These fun hats were made from the same basic pattern, used in two different ways. Both were made in worsted weight yarn, and are fairly simple to make. The body of the hat is knitted flat and then grafted into a tube, and then the ribbing is knitted in the round.  If you are uncomfortable with grafting, you can instead use a standard cast-on and bind-off and then sew a seam that will be hidden inside.

swirlytopCinch1

Your PDF pattern package includes charts and line-by-line instructions where appropriate.  The knitter is encouraged to play with the basic technique and develop their own color schemes — for example, this would be a fun experiment with Shadow knitting to include hidden words or designs!

Art Deco II (hand-knit)

A fun and easy design, reminiscent of the Art Deco era.

Art Deco II is both a pattern and a technique that can be used for knitting graceful curves wherever you need them in your knitting.  The original shown in the photographs was knit with KnitPicks “Palette” fingering weight yarn, but can be knit in whatever yarn and colors you wish, with whatever needles provide the drape and stitch definition you prefer.  Further, because each section starts and ends on its own, you can start half-way up and avoid that round “target” directly over the backside, to create a more rectangular stole.

AJ Baby Blanket (hand-knit)

Designed for a new niece in the family, the AJ Baby Blanket was knit with a sport weight cotton yarn (about 850 yards), and measures about 40 inches across when blocked. You might like using a washable wool in sport or worsted weight for a larger afghan, or even a laceweight yarn on larger needles to create a shawl.

shortyMcRippletonShorty McRippleton (hand-knit)

This short-row design was created to take advantage of variegated yarns.  Knit side to side, it creates vertical zig-zag stripes the length of the project.  In the sample shown, several different colorways of yarn were used, so you can see the effect of different color combinations.
