 I made a new ebook! So between the 6 patterns in Stormy Knits and the 2 patterns in Fletch & Oliver, Squadcessories has 4 patterns. Let's meet them!
Leighann Mitts are classic and classy; with a roomy, twisted-stitch cuff and a contrasting Swiss tab, these are both fashionable and functional. The convertible cuffs can be worn long and straight, or playfully scrunched! They're worn by my friend Leighann, who somehow manages to be both edgy and elegant at the same time.

Zelm is a smooshy, reversible 2-color brioche hat with a jaunty swirl worked in. Basically two hats in one, this is both fun to knit and wear! It's worn by my friend Brianna, a brilliant teacher in Chicago, who embodies both sophistication and silliness. (We like to sing together, too!)

Horcrux Cowl is a striking, graphic, and warm piece for winter. It's knit as a tube, with a provisional cast on and grafted at the end, using kitchener stitch, creating a completely seamless look, devoid of ends to weave in!  Wearing it is Jamie, an amazing visual artist and photographer. Check out her work on Instagram at!

And last, but definitely not least, is Pop Art Pop Tart, a Lichtenstein- and Warhol- inspired topper. Oh yes, and most importantly, inspired by Betsy Johnson, my friend Stephanie's favorite designer! It's knit using stranded colorwork--check out my Instagram for a video that shows how I control the tension of long floats!
