- Latitude and Longitude, an accessory set including instructions for a two-color hat, cowl, and scarf, all fully reversible, with vertical stripes on one side and horizontal stripes on the other. The pattern uses only knits, purls, and slipped stitches, with only one color of self-striping yarn (such as Noro Kureyon) used per row. Both charted and written instructions are provided.
- A tutorial for adding afterthought thrums to stranded colorwork mittens (or any other stranded colorwork item that could use some extra warmth).
- The Tyro Socks, toe-up lace socks for beginners featuring a short-row toe and heel and an easy wave lace pattern, mirrored on the left and right feet, provided both as a chart and written out. The pattern also includes a photo tutorial on working the short-row toe and heel.
- Metheglin, a lovely and unusual cowl featuring a combination of stranded colorwork and interesting texture: slipped stitches form a honeycomb pattern over a garter stitch base of a contrasting color. It uses less than 100 m/110 yards/50 grams of each of two colors of worsted weight yarn, making it a great showcase for a small amount of something precious, luxurious, and soft.
- The Windflower Scarf, a simple but elegant reversible scarf for lovers of garter stitch. The anemone stitch pattern looks complicated, but this scarf is actually very easy to work, and completely suitable for beginning knitters. The pattern is written for DK and worsted weight, and includes a worksheet for customizing the scarf to other gauges.
- The Water is Wide, a scarf pattern including three different variations (or four, depending on how you count them), all fully reversible:
1) Cabled waves on one side, quilted gull stitch rib on the other. Shown in lavender-ish Malabrigo Silky Merino.
2) “Wings to Fly”: Quilted gull stitch rib on both sides. Shown in rainbow striped colors of Noro Kureyon and Plymouth Boku.
3) “Sailing the Sea”: Wave cables on both sides.And 3a), shown in the photos in blue Malabrigo Merino Worsted, is the Sailing the Sea variation, but worked with a keyhole fastening instead of as a plain flat scarf–this uses less yardage than a full scarf would, and holds the scarf securely in place around your neck.
- Prickle, a reversible lace moebius cowl knit in one piece from the center outwards, with a sideways, knit-on edging to bind it off; it uses less than 220 yards of worsted weight yarn (suggested yarns: Malabrigo, Silk Garden, Berroco Ultra Alpaca), and has two edging options provided, frilly lace or plain garter stitch
