Knitwear

The knit wear section presents textured scarfs and hats. I like to combine lace patterns with thicker yarn, structural cables and geometric color knits. The difficulty ranges between simple knit and purls und more complex lace or color work knits.

Embroidery

Sitting outside on a bench in the afternoon embroidering is one of the most relaxing things for me (at least if my needle and hand do what my head tells them!). My embroidery patterns reflect my passion for colors, wildlife and languages.

The color of the box around each description indicates the level of difficulty.
Green represents patterns using mostly stitches like running stitch or backstitch. A yellow box pattern is more a medium level, french knots, herringbone stitch or others. The red box patterns use a large variety of stitches and might be more challenging.

Handpuppets

The handpuppet series is a collection of wild and domestic animals. Every handpuppet is designed to fit a childs hand, which is surprisingly not always the case with many handpuppets. Adults with slim hands can use these handpuppets, too. If you want the handpuppet for Adults choose a thicker yarn to knit with.

Most handpuppets are worked in a DK weight yarn and measure 15x10cm/6x4inch at average (some have longer noses, beaks, etc.)

The instructions are illustrated with step-by-step photos to make it easy to follow. Advanced knitting techniques are explained with the use of phototutorials.

The color of the frame around the pattern description shows the difficulty level. Green uses basic stitches, yellow has some tricky parts, red makes use of more challenging skills. Nevertheless don’t let this discourage you in trying some new skills! With small projects like handpuppets it’s easier to experiment – You don’t waste a weeks worth of time when you do something different.

Mandalas

Stitching Mandalas has a very relaxing character. The repetitive shapes allow to play with the colors freely and even help practicing some new embroidery stitches.

The color of the box around each description indicates the level of difficulty.
Green represents patterns using mostly stitches like running stitch or backstitch. A yellow box pattern is more a medium level, french knots, herringbone stitch or others. The red box patterns use a large variety of stitches and might be more challenging.
