So you take your new treasure home, excited about the possibilities, but somehow, it ends up neglected in your stash.

Knitting through the elements: Windborne shawl

Windborne – Triangle shawl knitting pattern with beautiful lace

The wind races across open fields, a natural force full of energy and potential. It moves freely, unbound by any limits, internal or external. Each gust tells a story of adventure, of paths yet to be discovered.

Inspired by the Air element, Windborne celebrates freedom and movement, wrapping you in the promise of endless possibilities.

This asymmetric triangle shawl knitting pattern features delicate texture and beautiful lace.

You work the textured body in stockinette stitch and horizontal garter ridges. The eye-catching lace plays with left and right slanting decreases to create movement and flow.

Pair it with your favourite yarn, and you won’t be able to put your knitting down.

I knitted mine with Knitting for Olive Merino (100% Merino wool; 250 m / 273 yds per 50 g) in the colour Fennel Seed.

You’ll need about 650 m / 710 yds of similar light-fingering to fingering weight yarn.

Windborne is exclusive to members of the 2024 Shawl Club, and now’s the perfect time to join!

The 2024 Shawl Club is a collection of four shawl patterns, each inspired by the four elements: Earth, Air, Water and Fire.

By joining now, you get instant access to the first two patterns, Earthsong and Windborne. Then, as a 2024 Shawl Club member, you’ll receive the remaining two shawl patterns in September and December.

Knitting: Better than retail therapy

Simple knitting with beautiful results

Who needs retail therapy when you’ve got knitting?

Knitting is a much better (and more sustainable!) way to get that dopamine boost are brains are hard-wired for, than buying more stuff we don’t need.

It’s also the perfect way to de-stress and feel accomplished at the same time.

There’s something magical about the rhythmic click of needles and the feel of yarn sliding through your fingers.

The repetitive motion is like a meditation session. It quiets the monkey mind and brings instant peace.

Plus, nothing beats the thrill of turning a skein of yarn into a beautiful shawl.

And let’s be honest, there’s no better feeling than finishing a project and saying, “I made this!”

Riding the wave of the hottest trend in the knitting world

Orbit – Easy scarf knitting pattern for DK weight yarn

Are you on board with the small scarves craze that’s been taking the knitting world by storm?

Suddenly, my Orbit scarf pattern is as hot as Jon Bon Jovi in the ‘90s.

Since its debut in 2013, Orbit has always been a firm favourite and top seller. But recently, its popularity has skyrocketed, and it’s flying off the shelves like never before.

More than a decade after its release, it’s become the knitting pattern du jour.

Small scarves are the hottest trend in the knitting world, and Orbit is perfectly on point.

If you haven’t come across this gem, let me fill you in.

Orbit is an asymmetrical triangle scarf with garter stitch and simple eyelets.

It’s a breeze to knit and perfect for everyday wear.

And the best part? All you need is one skein of DK-weight yarn.

I knitted my sample in a lovely muted green Madelinetosh Tosh DK (100% merino; 206 m / 225 yds per skein).

You’ll need the same amount of DK-weight yarn to knit your own.

Is yarn insurance a thing? Asking for a friend…

Your stash worth is your net worth? Why knitters should be talking to insurance agents.

You know you’re a knitter when… You’ve considered getting insurance for your yarn stash.

And honestly, why wouldn’t you? We’re not talking about a couple of spools from the bargain bin; your stash might just be worth a downpayment on a car—or even a house!

What started as a modest pile of fibres has blossomed into what any financial advisor would call a ‘substantial asset’.

It’s not just yarn; it’s a high-value investment portfolio. And protecting our assets is smart planning, right?

Is it just me, or does yarn insurance suddenly sound like a pretty savvy idea?

The perfect warm weather knit

Open Skies – Bias rectangle scarf knitting pattern with garter stitch and simple lace.

Does this sound familiar?

You love knitting shawls.

You adore exquisite wool yarns.

But when the temperatures rise, you find very little use for all those gorgeous shawls in your closet.

As much as I love the warm spring sun and the promise of the approaching summer, it also means that it gets too hot to wear my larger shawls.

And that’s exactly why I designed the Open Skies scarf.

For the days when all you can imagine draping around your neck is a sleek, little thing that’s as light as a summer breeze.

Something that pairs equally well with your favourite linen dress or a tank top and denim shorts.

And is just enough to ward off the morning chill and keep you comfortable in air-conditioned spaces.

Open Skies is a lightweight rectangle scarf with bias construction and tapered ends.

You work it in garter stitch and simple lace, playing with vertical and diagonal eyelet bands.

You could also knit your Open Skies with linen or silk yarn to make it even more summer-heat-appropriate. ☀️☀️☀️

The repetitive rhythm of the pattern invites you to connect with the rooting energy of the Earth.

The Earth element reminds us to stay grounded and present, to trust in the cyclical nature of life and ourselves, to lean into the season of life that we’re currently in, and to find strength and resilience in who we are.

Earthsong is a crescent-shaped one-skein shawl with garter stitch, beautiful yet simple chevron lace, and an i-cord bind-off.

As you knit Earthsong, allow yourself to get grounded, stay present, and feel a deep connection with the natural world, knowing you are supported.
