Fern Lace Shawlette re-release

When it rains, it pours! Here’s the third of my patterns whose rights have come back to me just now. This is the Fern Lace Shawlette. It was originally published in the Knit Picks Under 100 Knit Collection. Now you can get the single pattern from me through Ravelry. You can still purchase it in e-book or book form from Knit Picks, too.

Fern is a crescent shaped shawlette, knit from side to side. The lacy border is knit at the same time as the garter stitch body, which increases from one end to the center and then decreases to the other end. Optional beading along the leaves’ center veins adds sparkle and weight for drape.

Fern Lace Shawlette, as featured in the Under 100 Knit Collection.

Fern is knit with fingering weight yarn. I used Knit Picks Palette, 100g of Peruvian Highland Merino wool.

To celebrate this pattern’s re-release, I’m offering 20% off through January 15 with the coupon code FERN. Ravelry link here. Have fun!

That concludes this flurry of re-released patterns. That’s three patterns, three codes. I’ll make them all end on January 15, for continuity’s sake.

Are you interested in a KAL for one of these items, or a general re-release KAL? Let me know here or on Ravelry. I’ve also got a new worsted weight hat and mitts coming soon, which could be a KAL. Oh, the possibilities!

Under 100 Knit Collection: book launch and giveaway

I’m so pleased to have one more pattern published this year. It’s my Fern Shawlette, and it’s part of the Under 100 Knit Collection from Knit Picks which goes live today. Each of the 30 projects in this book takes 100 grams of yarn or less. Hats, socks, scarves, shawlettes, mitts, accessories…all my favorite things, and all knit up very quickly.

Here’s my Fern Shawlette, as shown in the book.

And here’s Fern, in a lighter color so you can see the detail. (Thanks, Bobbi, for modeling!)

The Fern Shawlette is knit with 100g (or less) of fingering weight yarn. This is Knit Picks Palette, 100% Peruvian Highland Wool. It’s a lot like Shetland, and knits up to be light and airy. Beads are optional on this piece.

You can order this book from Knit Picks as an ebook, or as a print book. The patterns are also available individually. I’ve had the pleasure of paging through the print copy for the past week, and I’m giving away a copy of the ebook here on my blog. More on that in a bit.

I’ve had a fun knitting year; here are the designs I’ve published or had published in 2013.

2014 is off to a great start. The cast on for the first ever Rose City Yarn Crawl KAL mystery shawlette I designed begins January 17 (are you going to participate in the KAL?) and I have another piece that will launch during the crawl, too. I have a club knit coming out at the end of January, and I’m also designing another club knit for March. I may be having a Thrumbelina KAL, too. My fingers will be flying; come knit with me!

To celebrate the debut of the Under 100 Collection, I’m giving away a copy of the ebook. To enter, leave a comment on this post telling me about the best thing you knit in 2013. I’ll pick the ebook winner on January 6. Good luck!
