I am a graphic designer with a weakness for everything that’s handmade, especially textile- and yarnrelated.
I have always been designing all kinds of things … clothes, knitwear, small furniture … I like to work with recycled materials and experiment with them. This blog will be my notebook of my knitting inspiration, designs and explorations.

  1. Hello there, I have the Big and Small Leaves Cardigan pattern. Can you advise how many metres of double knitting yarn are required. Is it simply twice the number of metres quoted for 12 play yarn?

  2. I bought the Lavendula pattern in december, and now I am ready to start.
    You wrote that it would be easy to make buttonholes, and I think that I would like to be able to close it, so I can use it as coat here in the spring, but I am having doubts about where to put buttons and buttonholes … on the narrow or wide piece on the garter-wave-edge? (row 3 / 15 in the diagram). Where would you put them?

    – by the way; I looove the Crazy Stripes Tee. I have already knit it twice and more could come. It looks great and is fun to knit. My very first attempt to follow an english pattern was your Wrapped Hat, and I must say, that I find your patterns to be well written, detailed and easy to follow. The many drawings also helps a lot when knitting the neck and shoulder. Thank you for that 🙂

    • Hi Gitte, Thanks. I am glad you like the way I write up my patterns.
      Two testers added buttonholes. One did it in the wide garter portion and the other in the narrow portion. I like it both ways, in fact. Difficult to decide which is best. I don’t know if you are on Ravelry, but you could go check both versions. here and here
      Happy knitting

  3. Hello,
    I am.knitting the Bucchia Hat ans habe a question: In Version XL you write at the BODY: 12/8/4/0 . What do you man with 0? What habe I to do here? Ans What meine “Work 9”? What habe I to do here? Thanks you veryvery much for your help! Kindest regards from Germany, Petra

    • Hi Petra,
      At the body: work 12/8/4/0 sts, means that the smallest size has to work 12 sts and the largest size 0 sts before doing the next instructions. If you are making the largest size, you can start immediately with * [ k1, yo, k1 in …..
      The work 9 means you work the 1/1 ribbing as established.
      Hope this helps,
      Happy knitting,

  4. Hi there, I have started the Grebo pattern but lost my copy of the instructions and now can’t download them. Do you still have a copy? Is there any chance you could send it to me?

    Thanks so much.

    • Hi Jane,
      I deactivated it because it doesn’t reflect the way I write patterns anymore. And I didn’t realize people were working on it because there are only very few projects linked to the pattern. I will put it up again and leave it. You should be able to access it now.
