  1. Weekend Sweater - SPP67

    From $7.99

    Knit a comfortable, attractive yoke sweater for everyday wear - that is custom fit for you. Meg Swansen leads you step by step through the remarkably simple process of sizing your sweater with EPS (Elizabeth’s Percentage System). Use the wool and needles you want - there are no steeks or cutting: simply weave the underarms for a completely seamless sweater. Work a hem, garter-stitch or rolled lower edge, and choose between a 3 or 4 decrease yoke. Perfect for those wishing to knit their first sweater. Learn More
  2. SPP77, The Surprise Vest

    SPP77, The Surprise Vest

    Cully Swansen

    From $11.99

    The Baby Surprise Jacket has only grown in popularity since Elizabeth Zimmermann knit the first one for her grandson, Cully, 50 years ago! Now, coming full-circle, Cully has designed a pair of Surprise Vests, which, similar to the BSJ, capture the exciting transformation that - with a couple of folds - turns a mysterious mass of knitting into a beautiful garment.

    The elegant Fair Isle Surprise Vest is truly revolutionary for Fair Isle construction. The beautiful OXOs and Peeries of a traditional Fair Isle are led on a surprising path during the knitting, resulting in a pleasing puzzle that, when folded and woven, reveals a striking mitered-front. Two different methods for Fair Isle construction are included.

    A similar exciting puzzle awaits with the Garter Stitch Surprise Vest. No steeks - simply a couple of increase points (like on the BSJ) and the mystery grows throughout the knitting; then, voila - a cozy, attractive vest.

    Full instructions for both vests, with multiple sizes up to 46" Fair Isle and up to 50" Garter, and plenty of images; 12 pgs in a protective archival sheet protector.

    Knit in Jamieson's Shetland (Fair Isle) and Unspun Icelandic (Garter Stitch) or Canadian Regal (Garter Stitch)

  3. WG 100 A-Line Fair Isle Yoke

    From $5.50

    It seemed natural that for Wool Gathering #100 (an auspicious anniversary) I should return to my mum's basic EPS seamless yoke pullover, in homage to her 1958 Newsletter #1 (now available in The Opinionated Knitter). The design relates to NL#1 in the use of Shetland wool, and EPS (Elizabeth's Percentage System). I played with the dimensions and shaping, and it is my intention to show you how easily you can manipulate EPS to suit your needs. This sweater is full of deviations from the standard EPS yoke sweater, but the overall format is still your guide. A few features of this design: short(ish) boxy body in Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift wool, 3/4 length sleeves, a shallow yoke with a Fair Isle pattern, a wide neck opening, subtle rolled edges, and a slight A-line (with instruction for a more dramatic A-line).

  5. Lace Alphabet Shawl - SPP9

    From $7.99

       Knitters are fond of expressing themselves not only through their knitting but also through messages or statements 'written' into their garments. Here Bridget guides you through the creation of two gorgeous and practical alphabets. Knitters can practice their ABCs as they knit a useful sampler scarf. Bridget's lace alphabets are easily applied to any lace design. Instructions with 2 charts: one bottom-up and one top-down.

  6. Bohus Inspired Yoke - SPP58

    Bohus Inspired Yoke - SPP58

    Felipe Cavalheiro

    From $7.99

    Another lovely design from Brazilian knitter, Felipe Cavalheiro, who follows Elizabeth Zimmermann's Percentage System (EPS) to construct the sweater. The yoke design and colors are inspired by sweaters from the Swedish Bohus Stickning period, a halcyon period in the history of knitting. Bohus designs are unlike any other traditional motifs, and Felipe's original yoke design is intriguing to knit and striking to wear. Learn More
  7. Welcome Back Sun - SPP22

    Welcome Back Sun - SPP22

    Marilyn van Keppel

  8. Near Solstice Shawl - SPP7

    From $7.99

       Bridget is truly an extraordinary lace innovator, never borrowing existing patterns from books, but designing each of her unique motifs from scratch and, when necessary, inventing techniques to realize her ideas. Here she artfully places the delicate footprints of birds in snow into a lovely triangular shawl - with a beautiful original Haiku knitted along the top edge. Full detailed instructions and charts.

  9. If I Could Fly - SPP25

    If I Could Fly - SPP25

    Bridget Rorem

    From $7.99

       If I Could Fly was inspired by a rubbing of a stone angel given to Bridget by a friend. She was taken with the stylized patterning of the feathers on the wings, and she thought it could be made in lace, specifically a Faroese style. The result is this lovely, delicate shawl. Faroese-Style Shawls are popular for their beautiful shaping; they narrow toward the top and sit snugly on the shoulder. Knit in our Icelandic Laceweight or Shetland Laceweight wool. Full charts.
       Print version comes in a 3-hole, archival quality sheet protector.

  10. Pansy Triangle Shawl - SPP27

    From $7.99

       This shawl has a simple pansy flower pattern and the shape of a traditional Faroese style shawl - with a surprise: it is knit from side to side! The construction is full of opportunities to adjust the shaping, so you can use the pattern for a wide triangular scarf or an elegant long shawl with lots of drape. It's a challenging and fun pattern for knitters who want to try lace for the first time, because they will learn both the Centered Double Decrease and the Centered Eyelet; those same details make it engaging for more experienced lace knitters too. In Shetland Spindrift or Unspun Icelandic; complete instructions and charts.
       Print version comes in a 3-hole, archival quality sheet protector.
