This kitchen set was designed for Creative Knitting, Spring 2013.
Domino knitting is easy, fun, and creative. This kitchen set uses 4 different yarns, with once used as the predominant stripe throughout the squares as well as for the loops.
Squares are easy to do. There is even a tutorial on how to work these squares. The nice thing is that they don’t require being sewn together; they are attached as you go.

Top Down A-Line Sweater

2012-11-18 15.54.32

The Twists and Diamonds Pullover is available in Small – 3X and is worked from the top down with sleeves worked separately and set in.

The fun with this design is the square neck that allows the cables to be set in such a way that no additional edging is needed.  Once the sweater in knit, simply sew the sleeve seam and set it in.  That’s it.

T-Sleeve Aran Cardigan

2013-01-03 13.26.542013-01-03 13.29.47

My newest design is an Aran cardigan which is worked from cuff to cuff with lapels and back collar worked with the yoke.

After the fun with the  sleeves and yoke portion are worked, it’s smooth sailing with stockinette stitch and bands that are worked with the body of the sweater.  Even the buttonholes in the yoke are worked with the sweater.

This minmal finish sweater needs only to have the sleeves sewn before starting the body from below the underarms as well as some blocking and weaving of yarn tails.

This a fun and cozy sweater .
