Celtic Mini Tablet Case Pattern

Celtic Mini Tablet Case Pattern

wanted a soft case for my iPad mini, and I have always loved celtic knots. Knitting lends itself quite well to create celtic knots with cables, so thus the Celtic Mini Tablet Case was born. It is a nice thick case that will protect against scratches. Solid colored yarns show off the celtic pattern quite nicely.

This case is designed for an iPad mini, with a finished size of 6” by 8.5” (15.24 cm by 21.6 cm). It should accommodate smaller tablets with a bit of extra space inside and slightly larger tablets with some stretch.

Flow State Scarf Pattern

Flow State Scarf Pattern

“Flow State” or being “in the zone” describes a person being completely absorbed in what they are doing. This often leads to higher productivity and greater enjoyment of the task. Flow state is exactly how I feel about knitting. When I really get into a rhythm, the stitches just flow. It is almost a form of meditation, which helps me relax and reduce stress.

I named this scarf “Flow State”, not only to represent this form of concentration when knitting, but also to represent the flow of a river. The curves flow along the length of the scarf just as a river flows around its banks. The scarf is thick and squishy, perfect for cold weather days. The ribbed pattern is also reversible.

Dragon Curve Fractal Scarf Pattern

Dragon Curve Fractal Scarf Pattern

Fractals have always fascinated me. They are a beautiful combination of mathematics and art. At its most basic level, a fractal is a pattern that looks similar at every level of magnification. The Dragon Curve Fractal is the fractal featured in the chapter headings for Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton.

I designed this scarf to show off the lacy design of the Dragon Curve Fractal. It is a medium weight, double knit scarf that features the fractal repeated all along the length of the scarf. Contrasting yarns show off the design, especially if one of the yarns is a variegated yarn. The length of the scarf is customizable, depending on how many repeats of the charts are worked.

My First Knitting Pattern – Fire Dragon Scarf

My First Knitting Pattern – Fire Dragon Scarf

I’m excited to announce that I just published my very first knitting pattern, the Fire Dragon Scarf.

I made two versions of this scarf, one in black and a fire-themed colorway (Universal Yarns Classic Shades), and another in black and green (Cascade 220 Superwash). The last picture is myself and my boyfriend, Chris, using the scarves to keep warm in Yosemite in winter. I made the green and black one longer by lengthening the solid section, since he is much taller than me. I’ve always loved dragons, and these were so much fun to design and knit!
