I’m a knitter and designer in small town, eastern Ontario from mega city Seoul. I worked in fashion field over 10 years and made indie animation film with friends before I moved to Canada be with my love. I’m a fan of Sci-fi and like mathematics.  I tech edits and translate patterns when I’m not working my own designs.

  1. Having problems doing edging on Larkspur Shawl. Are rows supposed to be knit all the way across? Is pattern knit from right to left or left to right?

  2. Hi Maria I am making the vellum cardigan from interweave knits spring 2015. I am stumped. I am on the left side. The schematic for the pattern says knit 12 rows and then break off yarn (6 in seed, 3 increase + 3 plain rows) The schematic says that the width is 16 inches. I don tip understand how it gets to be that width? Can you help? Thank you. Clarice

    • Hello Clarice,

      12 rows of left side is just a part of underarm. You should work right side and then work from right to left across the back neck later.

      Happy Knitting!

  3. I’m trying to purchase the Art Deco Fan Shawl and the system in place isn’t working. Is there another way to purchase this pattern?

    • Hello Deborah,
      I’m sure you got the pattern already because I just left reply on your message in Ravelry. I just got home from vacation. Sorry to late answer.. Thanks! MaRiA

  4. I am having trouble executing the shadow join for 2 row striped knitting included in the pattern for your Lin Sweater. Holes are appearing at the join. What am I doing wrong?

    • Hello, Libby! Hope it’s not too late to answer. It’s a kind of simple optical trick. Just two different color yarn set on different joining point. If you have holes, no worries. it will gone after blocking.
      Happy Knitting!

  5. I too have a question on the LARKSPUR SHAWL. When you knit the 173 sts and wrap the next st and turn, are you going back over the 173 sts or continuing on over the remaining 173 sts?
    My name is Marilyn. I appreciate your help.

    • Hello Marilyn,
      Knit 173 and w&t; That the row 1. It doesn’t need to back over.
      You should knit 2 sts and w&t on the next row.
      There are no errata on the pattern. So no worries about tiny st numbers on the following Shot-rows instruction.

      Thanks. 🙂


  6. I am wanting to make the Charvet Pullover but with a double seed stitch pattern. Do you have any suggestions of how I would do this?

  7. I am trying to start the Boxelder cardigan in 2013 knitscene. I don’t see how the closed toe Judy’s magic cast on will make an open hood!? Is there something I am missing?
    Where is the opening?

    • When you knit socks, you should work in round. For hood, it’s work back and forth. Then you will see the opening on face side.

      • I guess when I made the 2 needles cast on, with the yarns in one hand they crossed each other and so the stitches were together. I will try again with different instructions. It is hard to describe in text!
