Pattern Release: Solomon’s Cross Afghan Square

So can you remember me telling you about how much I loved the ‘Solomon’s Knot’ stitch, well I decided to go looking for some other patterns that used this stitch and do you know what I found…or didn’t find as the case maybe…that there is NO afghan square that has a Solomon’s Knot in it – though if I’m wrong I’d love a link to other squares that use this stitch. 

This was an issue I thought had to be rectified as soon as possible and so the ‘Solomon’s Cross’ Afghan Square was born!

Solomon's Knot Afghan Square

A uniform little square that would look great in a multi-square afghan or worked up in different colours sewn together as  a blanket – the possibilities are endless!  

And for anyone that is not familiar with the stitch I have included a full photo tutorial in the pattern on how to do a single and double Solomon’s Knot.

So I now have a square for March all finished up and ready to join my Midnight Eagle Owl square and the Shy Violet square in my self set mini challenge to create a new Afghan Square each month this year…now I need to get thinking about my square for April!  But in the meantime this pattern is now available for you to download (or favourite for later) from Ravelry or Craftsy.

If you do make up this square I hope you will send me a photo either by email or share on my Facebook page as I’d love to see!


Pattern Release: Lover’s Ladder Infinity Cowl

So  I’m really excited to share my latest pattern with you; the Lover’s Ladder Infinity scarf.


This pattern all started with a test of the Mackenzie baby dress I did which introduced me to the Lover’s Knot / Solomon’s Knot for the first time.  I so enjoy learning new stitches and this was definitely love at first stitch! What looked like it was going to be a tricky olde thing turned out to be relatively simple once I got the hang of it.  I think there will definitely be future pattern designs of mine that incorporate this stitch!

The fab thing about this pattern is that you can use different yarns or hook sizes (which is something I don’t get to say often), you can make it short or long, twist it up or don’t twist it and contrast yarn and buttons to create something completely unique and potentially different each time you make it! 

Get your copy of the pattern directly from the following links:

Finished cowls are also available for purchase but price depends on yarn/buttons used so please message me with any requests so we can chat some more about it.
