I have published some designs on Knit Picks – at last count, 22(!) – and two of my favorites were just published on their site. The one thing I really love about the designs on Knit Picks is that many of them have a “kit builder” feature so that you can order the pattern, yarn and anything else needed all at once.
Kingfisher Shawlette … a fun, very versatile, shawlette knit in Knit Picks Palette. I love the colors and textures of this one.
The second pattern is one that I re-knit using Knit Picks Andean Treasure (a luxurious Baby Alpaca yarn) that came out better than the original. Walkin’ in a Winter Wonderland makes an elbow-length capelet/poncho with a high neck you can either fold down or wear up. Either way, it’s uber cozy! The alpaca, which doesn’t normally have much memory and can stretch when wearing, works perfectly in this stranded-colorwork design. I especially like the halo effect that softens the design!
These and 20 other of my designs are available on Knit Picks. You can also look for these designs in my Ravelry Store.
