Pattern: Hic Sunt Dracones (available here)
A photo tutorial is included for the cuff, which starts with a Turkish cast-on, is worked flat and then grafted with Kitchener stitch to form a wristband. The hand is worked in the round after stitches have been picked up from the upper edge of the cuff.
The pattern includes full written instructions as well as separate charts for both hands. It also includes information on how to adjust the measurements of the mitts.

The diamond stitch pattern adds texture and an extra touch of warmth to the body, while the brim features a twisted rib for a clean finish.

Pattern: Simple Stripes (available here)
The Simple Striped Sweater is worked from top down using fingering weight yarn in five colors. The imagination is the limit, you can make it bright and happy like the sample or maybe one in subtle, earthy tones? A monochrome version would be great also! The work begins with the neck ribbing. The neckline is then shaped with short rows. When the raglan increases are completed, sleeve stitches are placed on hold. The body is then worked in the round towards the hem. Sleeve stitches are then placed back on the needles and the sleeves are worked in the round towards the cuffs. Folded hem and sleeve cuffs add a nice finishing touch.

Pattern: Shifty (available here)
This sweater is all about being playful and having fun with color! One colorway is used consistently as the “background” while 3 contrasting colors make up the textured colorwork using the Mosaic knitting method!
