    Meg Swansen'sTwisted Stitch Pinafore has a textured body and plain sleeves (although there is a cable running the length of the saddle, sleeves, and cuffs in one version). The pullover is knitted in our Québécoise wool, which is firmly spun and plied to show off the twisted-stitch motifs.

    Wool Gathering #93 features Meg's Norwegian Mitten Cardigan (a follow up to her Latvian Mitten Cardigan SPP#34). Knitted in the round from the lower edge with a steek at center-front, a modified drop-shoulder steek at the underarms, shaped neck steek, and optional shoulder shaping. The pattern follows Elizabeth Zimmermann's chart for her Norwegian Mittens in Knitting Around, with a different pattern fore and aft. Choose a wide garter-stitch border, or several applications of I-Cord. This model was knitted using 3 shades of single-strand Unspun Icelandic. You can achieve an identical gauge with our Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift or Blackberry Ridge wool.

  4. WG 88 Celtic Pillows
    $5.00

       Wonderfully fun and stylish charts from the Dutch artist, Co Spinnhoven (in the book, Celtic Charted Designs) are applied by Meg to pillowcases. No shaping, just the joy of colorwork in the round. Some of these pillows are shown as examples in the book, Knitting with Two Colors - which promted the requests for specific instructions, and here they are!

  8. WG 83 EZ's Lap-Shoulder Variations
    $5.00

    WG#83 features one of Elizabeth Zimmermann's yoke shapes from 1971. Elizabeth's description of the design: "How about a totally new shoulder treatment for a circular seamless sweater? I call it the Lap-Shoulder Sweater because it continually laps over itself. The sleeve laps over the body, then the body laps over the sleeve; finally the back laps over the front." Learn More
  9. WG 82 Cully's Brick Sweater
    $5.00

    Garter stitch bands united to form a body precipitated this sweater form. The possibilities for patterns of "bricks" or blocks came to mind. Further ruminating and sketching led to a unified top, with sleeves and yoke all knitted cuff to cuff. Learn More
  10. Wg 77 Double-V Vest
    $5.00

    I call this design a Double-V Vest because there is also a V in the back; it is filled in and only exists to allow the front and back cables to meet at the shoulder tops. Here you may rise to the challenge of weaving a twisted-stitch cable to itself -- or not! The prototype was knitted in the new Wool/Alpaca blend (lovely) and, even though it is only half wool, I worked crocheted steeks at armholes and center-front. You may prefer to machine-stitch.
