Announcing JER Light and a Summer Knitalong!


Introducing Just Enough Ruffles Light!

Just Enough Ruffles Light is a fingering weight version of the popular Just Enough Ruffles pattern! Designed to use just 100g of fingering weight yarn, this scarf is perfect for those special single skeins when you need a pop of colour or a little warmth. A circular needle is used to accomodate the large number of stitches. Lots of helpful tips included.

I’m also hosting my first-ever Knit-a-Long with Knitter’s Pride! I’m really excited, there are great prizes and tutorials coming up, plus…a coupon code for ALL my neckwear patterns!

New Rusholme Pattern – and Gleener Giveaway!

I had a few requests for the pattern for this sweater, and it’s finally ready! And if you scroll down, I have a fun giveaway today!

Rusholme Cardigan

Rusholme Cardigan

RUSHOLME is a cozy zippered cardigan with chunky seed stitch details and optional patch pockets. A little bit of waist shaping is worked on the back only, for a flattering but easy fit. The deep cuffs, fronts and long sailor collar are all edged with attached I-cord for a lovely clean finish. A one or two-way zipper makes Rusholme super easy to throw on every day, but it can also be worn open, or closed with toggles.

Worked as seamless raglan from the bottom up, with body knit flat and sleeves worked in the round. Can be worn with negative ease for a close fit, or make a larger size for extra coziness. For the best size, measure a sweater you like the fit of, and make the size closest to it. Shown in size 40” / 100cm with about 2” / 5cm of negative ease.
