Open Up features decreases, yarnovers, and strong shapes to create garments out of sculptural openwork fabrics.

The Octagon-Dot Pullover is made up of dozens of join-as-you-knit pieces to create a mosai-like tee perfect for layering. Other projects include surprisingly simple lace elements, laceweight yarn for elegant drape, and curves created by careful decreases. These garments are perfect for the layer-filled days of fall and spring.

nip/tuck Spacer 10x10 pixels

Nip/Tuck features garments that are pulled, scrunched, ruched, and tucked, and emphasizes that knitting doesn't happen in two dimensions.

The Waved Wrap transforms columns of ribbing into long, undulating waves using tucks and gathers. Other projects include dense cables, a deep lattice patterning, and buttons framed by carefully-created tucks. Each of these projects promises to keep the knitter intrigued, both while knitting and while wearing.
