Striped Esjan
With shawls, size does matter; I like them huge. And I also like them in speckle-dyed yarn and garter stitch. The Striped Esjan pattern by Stephen West has some additional lace knitting besides the garter stitch, but nothing too complicated, and I love the ...

Dotted Rays
Lately I've found myself more drawn to garter and stockinette stitch instead of traditional lacy shawls. The shape and colors of modern shawl designs seem more interesting than complex stitch patterns, not to mention the more relaxed knitting experience. Pr...

Lately I've found myself drawn to knitting endless stockinette. I find it addictive instead of boring. I also love the kind of fabric you get with Wollmeise Lacegarn in plain stockinette stitch. A few segments of different color add enough interest to the p...

Winter's Fern
This lovely hat pattern from Trin Annelie practically turned into a large Létt-Lopi swatch, because I still have issues combining stranded knitting with other kind of stitches in a single project, at least when it's something that also needs to fit my large...
