Medrith's Corner - From the archives of The Wool Room

Medrith Glover is a familiar name in a number of knitting circles. For decades she has owned and operated The Wool Room in Quincy, CA, and hosted annual knitting retreats for nearly as long. Her timeless designs have appeared in magazines, and she specializes in stylish sweaters for large sizes. Her most well-known design, the unique Circumnavigated Cardigan, reads like a novel and has been happily knitted by scores of people. Medrith is the daughter of Emily Ocker, whose famous cast-on is so vital to beginning a circular shawl. Here in Medrith's Corner, we offer her innovative design collection in its original format; conveniently converted to PDF. Check this Corner periodically, as Medrith will continue to add to the collection as she archives more material. Medrith also offers knitters some free patterns to download.

In winter storms, his cotton hats are soaked in just a few minutes and cotton is NOT warm when wet, as wool is…..Well, all my thoughts have finally come together and I’m proud of the result…a warm felted wool hat that looks very much like his old favorites….And, though I designed this hat with the guys in mind, with its crisp clean lines, it’ll no doubt look handsome on ladies, too.” Learn More

I loved the billowy cable so much I just had to do something exciting with it. I wanted mine to have as little finishing as possible - theirs had a lot of fussing at the end..........If you pay close attention to detail and are careful to perform all the following preparatory maneuvers, you will be rewarded with some very simplified and slick and handsome finishing.
