“The Ripple Effect” sweater pattern is now available for purchase!
It’s the PERFECT in between seasons sweater!
Introducing “The Ripple Effect”.
The perfect “in between seasons” sweater.
I’m so excited to share my newest pattern with you…
This fun, oversized sweater is PERFECT to throw on for a casual coffee date or lunch with the girlfriends.
Since it’s made using only the garter stitch, it’s an ideal project for the beginner knitter.
It’s also very versatile and can be worn with the seam exposed or hidden, with a shawl collar or flat.
The Holly Poncho is thick and cozy and is sure to become one of your absolute favourites!
Constructed of 2 pieces knit separately and sewn together, makes this pattern great for knitters looking to knit their first garment.
It utilizes the garter stitch with an I-cord edge for a more finished look and a simple 2×2 ribbing for the neck.
Created with approximately 780 yards of bulky weight yarn and US size 13 needles.

So here’s the blanket that I made from all that cushy Bernat Softee Chunky yarn I bought from yarncanada.ca!
A lot of people were asking for the pattern so I have written it out below:
You will need 9.5 balls of Bernat Softee Chunky and US size 11 circular needles (to hold the stitches)
Cast on 100 stitches then K10, P10 across the row for 10 rows. After 10 rows, change to P10, K10 across the row.
Continue alternating between K10, P10 for 10 rows then P10, K10 for 10 rows until you’ve completed 22 squares.
Cast off in pattern.
The finished blanket is about 44″ x 55″
I hope you give this blanket a try.
I really love it and it’s my go to pattern for blankets these days!
Well these certainly aren’t your Gramma’s slippers! LOL!! These ones are simple and sleek and easy to knit!
They are knit flat in one piece then sewn together.
Here’s the pattern for them if you want to make a pair, or 3 😉 for yourself. They will fit most average adult feet. To make them larger or smaller, either increase or decrease your stitches by 5.
US size 9 straight needles
About 70 yards of chunky weight yarn for BOTH slippers (about 32-35 yards for one).
Cast on 30 stitches. (If you want, you could knit 2 at one time!)
Knit 22 rows.
Cast off 12 stitches then knit the remaining 17 stitches on your left needle (there will be 1 stitch on your right needle).
Knit 12 rows.
On your next row, knit your 18 stitches then cast on 12 stitches using the single cast on method.
Knit 21 rows.
Working inside out, using a piece of yarn about 24″ long, thread a darning needle, tie the end, pick up all the stitches on the toe of the slipper and gather it together loosely. Then seam the toe, bottom and heel. Turn right side out, and they’re ready to wear! 😀
I used Red Heart Soft Essential yarns for my slippers.
Well I hope you get a chance to make a pair! They’re the perfect quick project and great great for using up your scrap yarn!

I just wanted to let everyone know that my “Bonnie Cowl” pattern should be released this week, so stay tuned.
I’ve been SO busy in the last couple of weeks that I haven’t had a chance to get it written out.
A couple of days ago I posted a picture of a baby blanket on my Instagram account and on my Facebook page.
Since posting it, I’ve had a few people ask me for the pattern, so I decided to write it out for you.
You will need approximately 750 yards of bulky yarn. I used Red Heart Soft Essentials – 250 yards of each colour or 2 balls of each colour if using the Red Heart Soft Essentials.
Cast on 6 stitches with your first colour using US size 10 circular needles.
The blanket is knit flat but you will need the circular needles to hold all the stitches.
Knit across all 6 stitches for 3 rows.
On the fourth row, knit 3 stitches, yarn over, knit the rest of the stitches in the row.
Continue with the fourth row until you have knit all of your first colour and 1 ball of your second colour.
You will now begin decreasing your stitches.
Knit the first 2 stitches, knit the next 2 stitches together, yarn over, knit 2 stitches together, then knit the rest of the stitches across the row.
NOTE: When you change to your third colour, make sure you make the change on the SAME side as your previous colour change.
Continue decreasing until you have 6 stitches on your needle, then knit all the 6 stitches for 3 rows and cast off.
The finished size is approximately 36″ x 36″.
Using the bulky yarn for this blanket makes it super cushy and soft. Perfect for that baby or toddler in your life!
If you decide to make one, I’d love to see it! 😀
