I finished this pattern this weekend after a long break. Not too much has changed, but I cleaned up the type, added some additional measurement information and included a chart for the crown decreases in addition to the written instructions. This hat is really simple, but looks great and works for a wide range of head sizes without modifications because it is so stretchy.
The pattern for the cuffed ZigZag fingerless mitts was in pretty good shape since it is one of my later patterns, but I still tweaked it a bit by reducing the number of cuffs rows by a few and adding in pattern charts so you can easily see the difference between the two. I left the original photography because it turned out so well. Enjoy!
Pattern is now available as an immediate download on Etsy and Craftsy!
Its been a long time coming, but I am finally finished updating the ZigZag Swirl hat pattern. The zigzag pattern has been revised from the original with the addition of a pattern chart as well as more detailed measurement information and yarn yardage.
I’ve also knit the sample up with my recommended yarn – Madelinetosh Tosh DK in Oak. The yarn has a wonderful feel, the right amount of bulk and a beautiful depth of color. I hope you enjoy!
I’ve finished up the free patterns and have finally started working on updating my patterns that are for sale. I have also decided to increase the price of the patterns based on all the work that goes into revamping them and all the great new charts and images that I’ve added. I think they are worth it and hopefully you will too!
The first pattern I’ve tackled is the Two Color Fingerless gloves pattern. This pattern, like the Gingerbread Icing Hat, has two versions that are included in the pattern. I’ve also added a pattern chart, finished measurements for each size, yarn yardage information for each size, and pictures of my new samples to show you how they should look.
I think I’m most excited about a quick reference color chart that I made so you can easily reference what pattern row and color you should be working on without having to read back through the written instructions. Enjoy!

This one was a quick update since the pattern is fairly simple. I really like this hat because it knits up quickly and is warm for winter. Looks good on men or women too! This update includes new pattern charts for the body pattern and the crown decrease. I’ve also written out the crown decrease rows in their entirety based on a specific row count, which makes it (hopefully) easier to follow.
The latest pattern to get a make-over is the Trellis fingerless gloves pattern. Its been a while since I created this pattern and I enjoyed reviewing and refining some of the details. I decided to alternate some of the cable sections and I’ve added a pattern chart for the “trellis” section of the gloves to make it easier to visualize.
I especially like how these knit up with Lion Brand Wool-Ease worsted weight yarn. Its less dense than some of the full acrylic worsted yarns I’ve used recently, which makes it a bit more elastic for the twisted knit stitches.
I hope you enjoy the new and improved instructions.
One of the things I did over the New Year’s long weekend was revise the Gingerbread Icing Scarf pattern. The biggest addition to this pattern is the full repeat chart. It also includes sizing information and pictures of the new sample I knit to finalize this pattern. You can download this pattern here or from the patterns page. I’ve also updated the link in the original post. Enjoy!
This tam design came from a desire to create a nice full hat that would look cute with short hair and have some nice cable detail. I worked hard to create make the decreases even and as invisible as possible. The result reminds me of a meringue cookie! I hope you enjoy it!

After a long delay, I finally circled back around to complete the Buttoned Puff Mitts pattern. This fun pattern was inspired by puffy sleeves and buttoned boots and gloves. They blur the line between mitts and gloves while leaving your fingers free for texting or typing.
The pattern is finally done! I’ve been working hard to add useful information and recheck my patterns to make them easier to follow. I’ve also added some additional photographs so you can see how things are supposed to look. This pattern is a bit longer than previous offerings because the pattern knits differently on each glove to mirror the zigzags. Let me know if you have any questions. I’ve knit this with a few different colorways of Malabrigo Silky Merino and they look great. I’ll have some new pictures on Ravelry and Craftsy soon.
