Braid Hills – reworked
Another new garment! Braid Hills is one of my favourite designs, and one I really wanted to return to. Some folk found the original pattern a bit tricky for a couple of reasons: I love the design, and really wanted to iron out these issues so that everyone could enjoy knitting and wearing this cardigan!…
Scarlett's Cardi pattern by Annie Schwier
I suppose you’re wondering who Scarlett is. Well, I’ll tell you. She is the little sister of the main character in the first novel I published, titled The Seer. It’s a contemporary fiction novel with a sci-fi twist and some other cool stuff. And throughout the course of the novel, the main character, Sterling, is knitting a pair of gray gloves for Scarlett. One day I decided that I wanted to find out what the gloves would look like. So I grabbed yarn and needles and got to work. Before I…
Purl Soho Incline Decline Cardigan Pattern, PDF
The lines and planes of our Incline Decline Cardigan employ quiet details and big gestures. Simple garter stitch with stockinette at the seams is the perfect language for the unconventional construction of this very fascinating knit. Each piece (two fronts and two backs) is knit on the bias, which, technically, means that the grain of the fabric is on the diagonal and, practically, means that you increase, decrease, or both at the beginning and end of each row. Seamed together up the center…

Courie In pattern by Littletheorem
“Courie in” is a Scottish phrase meaning to “snuggle up” - and it’s the perfect name for this oversized, supremely warm, wrap front cardigan. This is a real winter warmer, ideal for nestling into with a mug of cocoa on a cold day. And it’s so quick to knit! This cardigan has a slightly unusual construction. Sleeves are knitted first from cuff to centre back, then both sleeves are joined with a three needle bind off. Stitches are picked up at the bottom edge from armpit to armpit and worked…
Cardigan Coat + Vest
Whether stolen, borrowed or inherited, sporting a garment that once belonged to someone special brings a certain comfort or strength to your day. Maybe it’s because of the smell or the attached sentimentality. Whatever the reason, it’s why kids love to sleep in their dad’s shirts; why women wear the same oversized man’s sweater day in and day out; and it’s why I cherish my grandmother’s old clothes. The Purl Soho Cardigan Coat + Vest was undeniably inspired by this phenomenon. If my…
Cawdor is inspired by autumn when the last of the bilberries and the first of the mushrooms signal the end of summer. As the the trees turn, thoughts wander to cosy evenings by the fire or frosty walks kicking piles of leaves. This jumper, comfortable but also flattering, is just as at ease doing whatever you do to beat those winter blues.
